Welcome back my lovelies I hope you had a really nice week, I spent my time surrounded my tissues and cold and flu medicine. As you can imagine that was super fun LOL, so this weekend I am trying to catch up on all my reviews and swatches. So for today's post I am really excited to show you these gel polishes sent to me from BeautyWithin43, read on to find out more...
I was recently contacted by the lovely Sharon who runs the website BeautyWithin43, she is a UK distributor for OPI Gel Colour and Jessica GELeration products. I had not tried either of these so I was really excited when she contacted me to try some and share them with you.
OPI GelColor Show Us Your Tips
The first polish I have to show you is OPI GelColor 'Show Us Your Tips', this is a beautiful cornflour blue with a silver shimmer. This was fully opaque in 2 coats and really nice to work with, each layer levelled out nicely and that shimmer translates well.
OPI GelColor Hotter Than You Pink
The second OPI gel I have to show you is 'Hotter Than You Pink' a gorgeous bright neon pink with a blue shimmer. This was fully opaque in 3 coats and I did not need a white base coat, again formula was nice to work with and levelled out well between curing each layer.
Jessica GELeration Sheer Envy
The second brand is from Jessica this is their GELeration line this is Sheer Envy a milky white with copper shimmer. This was fully opaque in 3-4 coats, I wasn't a huge fan of this one as I personally don't like sheer polishes that show the nail line. This would be a really great polish for any interviews or professional events.
Jessica GELeration Romance Me
The final polish I have to show you today is Jessica 'Romance Me' a peachy pink nude, this was fully opaque in 3 coats. This is definitely another great colour for interviews and mannequin hand look, the formula with these nudes was very sheer so it does take quite a few coats to build up with opacity.
Overall I really enjoyed trying these gel polishes, from my first impressions I would choose the OPI colours over the Jessica ones. That is probably more down to personal preference than anything else. They all cured nicely under my UV/LED lamp and removed well with using the soaking method, I would definitely recommend them if you are looking into getting some gel polishes from these two well known mainstream brands.
BeautyWithin43 has a wide variety of shades to choose from in both brands, the OPI gels are available for £14.99 and the Jessica's are priced £12.99. They offer free shipping when using 2nd Class Royal Mail, this should arrive within 2-3 working days.
Another big thank you to Sharon who sent me these polishes for review, if you are looking to get some gels from these brands and are living in the UK then this store is definitely for you. Make sure you go and check out these fantastic range of colours she has in stock now.
I really hope you enjoyed this post and I will see you back here soon to show you some more nail goodies.
