Gellifique Gel Colour

*Press Sample

Hey Guys!

So, I was lucky enough to be sent a sample of the new One Step Gel Polish by GellifiQue®

Website Excerpt

GellifiQue® gel nail polish is patented and registered in the UK. It has over 650 colours in palette and more are added quarterly. This vast colour range allows the customer to select the shades most appropriate for their business whether it is a salon or a mobile nail service.  The designed colours are high tech and their easy removal technology is to match that of those brands that are already present in the market.

*******************

I was able to choose a colour, so went for #6033 Tropicana! It’s a creme formulation and is a gorgeous coral shade. Perfect for summer!

The bottles are a good size (12ml) and you can see the actual colour through the window at the front of the bottle. The directions, I was sent, state that the bottle contents must be mixed/shaken before use. The consistency is extremely creamy and highly pigmented.

Creamy Consistency

So, I did my normal prep work and, of course, there is no base coat step. I applied a thin layer – the application was super creamy and didn’t run or shrink. Directions stated the first thin layer should be cured for 2 minutes in a UV lamp, or 1 minute in an LED. I was using my CND LED lamp.

Second coat was applied in exactly the same manner, and this gave me full coverage. Curing times for the second layer states 3-4 minutes in a UV and 2 minutes in an LED.

After I’d cured the second colour coat in my LED, the results were a cured set of nails with no dispersion layer – and also no top coat!

The finish was extremely glossy & shiny, and the whole process was super fast and fuss free! The colour is absolutely gorgeous! I looked at the website and the prices are fantastic too!

Finished Result

This One Step Gel polish is designed for lasting 5-10 days, depending on your daily lifestyle. This type of system is perfect for toes as I can see it lasting a lot longer!

Sour Grapes

Sour Grapes has to be my favourite! It’s a purple based glitter with small, holographic hex glitters!

Squeeze Me

Squeeze Me is a tangerine iridescent glitter.

These all applied beautifully in 2 coats, and I cured for 60 seconds in my CND LED Lamp. Remember, glitter gels are slightly more difficult to work with, but the beauty of a gel polish is that you can move the glitter around to get your desired placement before curing.

I had to put one of these on my nails, and as I said Sour Grapes is my favourite! I applied as a glitter fade over a lilac gel polish and I was really pleased how they turned out! 💜
