Kiki London Nail Gel: Gel Polish & UV/LED Lamp

*Contains Press Samples*
Welcome back my lovelies, I hope this week has been treating you well. Today I have a gel polish brand to share with you, the lovely people at Kiki London recently sent me some of their fabulous Gel polishes to try as well as giving me a blogger discount on their LED/UV lamp. So let's take a look at these beautiful products.


I was sent 3 different gel polishes which are all perfect for this time of year, and their fabulous UV/LED lamp. I am still a novice when it comes to gel polish so these probably aren't going to be perfect. 

Titanium


First I have a stunning blingy soak off gel polish called Titanium that will be perfect for any of those holiday parties you may be attending. this has a clear base and is packed full of silver holographic glitters. This built up to full opacity in 2-3 coats. It went on the nail nicely and was each layer cured in 30 seconds under the lamp. 



Nude Knickers


The second polish sent to me is Nude Knickers a peach toned nude creme fully opaque in 3 coats and easy to apply. I do think I may have had too much on my brush for each layer with this one, as I said when it comes to gel I'm still learning. This is a lovely nude colour though, perfect for the work environment.



Ruby Ritz


The last colour I have to show you is Ruby Ritz a perfect polish for the holiday season, this has a red jelly base with red micro glitters. It built up to full opacity in 2 coats and was really easy to apply. 



All of these gel polishes were easy to work with and came off nicely using the soak off method. I didn't manage to give them a full wear test but you are suppose to get a full 14 days without any chips or fading. 


As well as the gels I was given the opportunity to purchase their UV/LED lamp at a discounted price. This is the Sun5,  a 48W LED lamp. It is multi-purpose so can be used for both UV and LED gel polishes as well as hard gel extension and acrylic gels. It was really simple to use you can either just place your hand straight in and it will start automatically or you can set it to 4 different timer settings. I really enjoyed working with this lamp, and it has a removable bottom so will be good for doing my tootsies in the Summer. It is priced on the Bio Beauty website for £29.99.

Overall I really enjoyed working with both the gel polishes and the lamp, they have over 42 different shades to chose from and all are priced at £3.99, so a really good price for 7.3ml of product. 

I will leave a link to the website down below for you so you can go browse for yourself. 


Thank you to the lovely people from Kiki London for sending me these products for review, I really enjoy trying out gel polishes and I am in love with my new lamp.

I would love to know your thoughts on these products? Also any tips on applying gel polish would be much appreciated.

As always I hope you enjoyed this post and I will chat to you all again soon.

  4. I'm a gel-novice as well (I'm talking burning my skin while curing). Your gel manis are perfect! Sounds like the lamp is quite easy to use.
