You might have seen my review of the NYK1 Secrets Gel System last year, since then I've done my gel nails at home on an almost weekly basis and bought quite a few new colours - thought I'd show you the latest! The colour I bought is called Tango and is perfect for summer (can't wait to get this on my toes but I've got a red glitter on them at the moment and I want to get my wear out of it!).
I'm still so impressed by the lasting power of these polishes and how easy they are to use. I've got application down to about 30 minutes now so factoring in drying time for normal nail polish it's not dissimilar. I've actually stopped wearing traditional polish now as it annoys me putting all that time and effort in just for it to chip within days - ain't nobody got time for that!
I also bought a colour called Nude which, as you may have guessed, is a plain nude colour. I've had that one on already but I think it'll look better when my nails are a bit longer so I'll grab some pics of that one next time. It's basically a good, everyday colour that doesn't make my hands look washed out or red. You could even paint over the nude colour easily if you wanted to wear a colour for a night out or event (or outfit).
I don't plan on getting gel nails done in a salon again, might book in for a nice summer pedicure at some point but just get normal polish. I actually feel like having gel polish on my nails stops them snapping and keeps them stronger - normally my nails are quite prone to this so it's nice to have a bit of extra protection and get them growing nice and long!
