My L'Oreal Extraordinaire Gel-Lacquer 1-2-3 manicure experience

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?


  1. I like the idea of gel nails without curing time!

  2. I will def have to try this. Looks great

  3. I just can't stand chipped nails so I'll definitely have to check these out! I've come up with my own little tricks over the years to make my polish last longer but I'm sure this will help out! Thanks for the recommendation! xo

  4. oooo I want to try this, I don't mind if it doesn't have that much shine really as long as it stays on my nails for at least 3-4 days
