So I'm kinda going for a coral theme lately, what with the Mac Costa Chic Lipstick earlier this week and now Models Own Coral Glaze Hyper Gel Polish.
There are so many of these Gel effect polishes around at the moment and as I usually do my own gels, I hadn't really paid much attention to them. I'm such a magpie though, I was completely drawn to this beautiful coral colour. As you may have noticed, I'm a complete sucker for anything peachy or coral hued.
In all honesty, I don't really find this formula any different to a regular nail polish. The overall finish isn't any glossier than an average Models Own polish. I actually found the consistency incredibly gloopy and ended up using my Seche Vite quick dry nail polish to speed up the drying process and therefore probably defeating the object of the gel finish. I got my usual 24 hours wear out of this, so the gel effect didn't really do anything to increase the life of my manicure.
All in all, I'm a bit meh about this hyper gel formula. If I want a gel finish, I'll use real gel and get a longer lasting manicure out of it. Have you tried any of these gel effect polishes and if so is there a particular brand you'd recommend?? I'd love to know....
Don't forget, there's still time for you to enter my Models Own Polish For Tans competition .
