Gel polishes are on the rise.
Some people want the durability of Gel polishes without the crazy removal time.
I was recently sent L'Oreal's new Extraordinaire Gel-Lacquer 1-2-3 manicure set.
I had no idea what to expect.
It was a three-step process.
Shake gently. After applying Gel-Primer, apply 2 coats followed by Extraordinaire Gel-Glaze.
Let me start off by saying I love the consistency of the polish.
No bubbling or streaking during my application.
All I needed was one thick coat!
I was extremely impressed with the dry time.
After 7 days
- No MAJOR chipping.
- Colour stayed on pretty good for 7 days.
- No UV light needed.
- Shine was gone.
- Visible wear up close.
I will say that the gel-lacquer holds up better than regular polish for me. I just wish that it still had the shine like my regular gel manicures after a week. The removal was a breeze. I used regular nail polish remover. No issues/ damages to my nail beds.
What do you think about my 7 day wear?
