Gelish Review (Holiday Gift)

I received a sample from Gelish for the sole purpose of this review

By now most of you know my obsession with Gelish. I've always loved nail polish (and have over 120 bottles), but when I finally got a chance to try out Gelish that applies with an LED lamp and hardens immediately, I couldn't get enough.

This is my second review for this wonderful product and I have to say it's no different then the first. 
My technique has improved a bit though. With the first application I did the polish started to lift up and peel, but not anymore since I've gotten better at my precision and accuracy. 
This time around I received the new Holiday Reds Collection

First of all, I can't believe it's almost the holidays already!! I mean it's almost November and that just blows me away!! 

Secondly I was super excited to try these out. Red is so timeless and such a classic color for your nails so I knew it would be fun to try these out and it's a great fall color too. 
I started with the Good Gossip which is a sparkly red.

And I love it so much!! It's the perfect shade for those winter/holiday parties that are coming up very quickly and it has sparkle so it's perfect for an evening out as well. 

This polish lasted 1 week on my nails before I decided to take it off since I was ready to try another shade. I'm waiting for my nails to heal a bit now and then I will try another red shade!

The process is simple, there's a lot of steps, but overall it takes about the same amount of time as a regular manicure. But lasts SO much longer. When I took this polish off my nails had grown out a bit, but there was no chipping or any major issues whatsoever. 

You use a ph bond to dry out your nails so the polish can adhere better, then you put on a base coat and cure it in the lamp, then your color and cure it in the lamp and then your top coat and cure it in the lamp. Each layer only takes 30 seconds to cure and when your nails come out it's hardened immediately and you can run right off and do whatever you normally would. I like to do dishes right after, it's a good tester for these nails. 

I love the process, I love how simple and easy it is and I love Gelish's colors!

They have a ton of new collections coming out as well, and I'm getting the opportunity to review those as well!

Price: They can be found at Sally Hansen, the polishes are $15 each and the lamp is $75. These are all on sale right now though! This would make a perfect Christmas gift for somebody!

Overall: ***** again!! I'll never give anything less to Gelish!
*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from Gelish in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Gelish for allowing me to review this product

this is neat, with little ones its very important for nail polish to try quickly before they get a chance to mess it up.
