EyeCANDY gel wrap system* | £10.99
Ever since I tried the Fuse Gelnamel nail kit I have been all about the gel polish. I have always struggled to keep the perfect manicure, with nails chipping after just 1 or 2 days, and the Gelnamel kit kept polish on for over week. Although I love it, it does take a bit of time to sit down and apply gel polish from start to finish. So when I found out about gel topcoats, which provide a long lasting gel like finish without the need for a UV lamp, I was super excited to try them out.
The EyeCANDY gel wrap system contains both a base coat and a top coat, that act as a wrap around your nail polish. The base coat is an acrylic gel formula, creating a smooth foundation base and the top coat is glossy and fast drying. You apply them like a normal base and top coat and they can be removed in exactly the same way, no need to soak in acetone, but by using nail polish remover. I tend to apply two layers of the top coat as I find it gives more a gel polish finish as it looks a little thicker.
So in terms of results, I am SO impressed. My nail polish lasted 6/7 days without chipping - much much longer than usual, and they kept their glossy shine the whole time. I now use nothing else. EyeCANDY polish can be found in Tesco and online at Amazon for £10.99, so if you see it I would highly recommend you try it out!
