Gelicious - After Glow

The picture on the bottle looks golden but the polish is silver just like on the website.

I liked this one - can silver be considered a neutral? Because I thought that people would notice a bit of bling on my fingers but they didn't really - there wasn't an OMG moment.

It took three coats and it lasted a fortnight before it chipped.

It took for ages to get rid of all the shimmery bits. I really dread removing polish at the best of times so I was pretty shirty and gave up before I could remove all the polish.

Next colour is going to be... Mintium.

Gelicious haul

The problem with a Gelicious haul is that all the bottles look the same.

Gelicious - Fake Tan

Two coats of Fake Tan. I don't really think the name matches the colour. In my nails it looked like a bronzy puce colour.

Longevity was good - exactly 2 weeks and it started chipping, although I did have some tip wear.

I was pretty hard on them too - canoes, climbing, high ropes challenges, camping. Basically I was on school camp for a bit of it.

What I was really worried about was the removal. I didn't want to worsen my nails. I bought some new acetone based remover - 80% I double checked - and tried again. It worked pretty well so it really must have been that other bottle.

This is good news because I bought a whole heap more from Buy Invite - I think each bottle was $15. So hopefully I'll have a huge haul to show you soon.
