I'm a huge fan of gel nail polish and have been hooked ever since I had my first manicure back in October! Whilst I love the results, regular visits to the salon don't put as much of a smile on my face. To save pennies, I bought the Sensationail Gel Polish Kit a few months ago using a mixture of Sensationail, Gelish and Red Carpet Manicure polishes with fab results.
Gel polish is amazing if you love bright or dark colours as you can be chip free for two whole weeks. Rather than two whole minutes with regular polish! However, two weeks is quite a commitment to one colour and it's not always inappropriate for racy red or flashy fushia. I'd been on the look out for a nude/natural gel polish and Simply Stunning certainly fits the bill!
Red Carpet Manicure Simply StunningFirstly, I have to say the photos don't really do this colour justice! It's a bit of a chameleon. Sometimes it's lilac. Other times it's nude. It's so difficult to pigeon-hole but the colour is what I would describe as nude with an edge.
Wearing it over the last week, it's really won me over. It's a very sophisticated colour and with it's lilac hues, it's perfect for spring! It's quite sheer which I like. I've used two coats and I think this is just about enough coverage for me, but some of you may prefer another coat.
A great thing about gel polish is that you can use your regular nail colour on top for a night out as long as you remove with a non-acetone polish remover. Which means that you can vamp your nails up for a night out without ruining your work-friendly gel manicure :) I think this will definitely be a staple colour for me over Spring.
