THE GEL TOP COAT FOR ANY NAIL POLISH

*Ciate Geltox Starter Kit from ASOS Beauty

During London Fashion Week I spent some time at The Apartment – a base for bloggers to chill out, loan clothes, have some lunch and check out the latest beauty offerings. ASOS Beauty had a space there and were showing all the latest launches and products which was super exciting – the one product that really caught my eye was this Ciate Geltox Starter Kit (which I briefly mentioned in my weekend post). In a nutshell it turns any nail polish into a long-lasting gel effect polish – I genuinely did a happy dance when I found about about this product!

There have been lots of at home gel effect polishes coming onto the market lately but I’ve not yet seen one that can be applied over a regular polish, this is like music to my ears as I have so many shades that I love but I wishes they were a little longer lasting! On Saturday I decided to give the product a whirl and on first impressions I love it, I painted my nails with Orly Kiss The Bride as it’s one of my favourite pastel shades, I applied two coats then left it half an hour so the polish was completely dry.

I then applied a coat of the Ciate Geltox topcoat, placed it under the lamp for 60 seconds and voila, gel nails! It also suggested that you can apply two topcoats for a super high shine which is what I did as I love that effect. One mistake I made is that I didn’t go over the very ends of my nails with the polish and they have cracked on the ends slightly, at least I know what to do for next time!

To remove the polish the kit recommends to buy the removal kit but I plan on gently buffing off the gel top coat then removing my polish as normal to save money. Overall, I’m so pleased with the final outcome of my nails, I did them three days ago and they are still going strong, I’m looking forward to seeing how long they actually last and also how easy the removal process is. For now, this starter kit is a current favourite that I can’t wait to try with my other favourite shades!

    I nearly brought this as it was half price on their website a couple of weeks ago! I wish I took the plunge as it looks great

      Me too! It is initially quite pricey but if you work out cost per use it works out way cheaper! x

    This is such a pretty shade and I really wanted to find a polish that color and also the top coat sounds amazing.
