Shimmery Blues | Bluesky A24 with Toppers Top Secret

I have one of the new Toppers top coats to show today. This is Top Secret and is one of 20 universal gel top coats that can be used to transform a gel manicure. I’ve used Bluesky A24 as the base, a plain navy gel polish. Once I’d cured the two coats, I added the […] Read more

Magic Hana Rainy Day (124) | One-step Gel

This pretty shade is Magic Hana Rainy Day; a one-step gel polish. I do love a one-step gel polish. No base, no top coat, no wiping. Just a few coats of colour and you’re ready to go. It’s so quick and so easy. So many times, I’ve removed my polish and haven’t had much time […] Read more

I fancied something quite elegant, and took inspiration from this Celina Rydén manicure on Instagram. I used a gel polish by Y&S. I […] Read more

Red Carpet Manicure Red Carpet Reddy

I wore another lovely Red Carpet Manicure gel polish a few weeks ago: Red Carpet Reddy. I love the Red Carpet Manicure gel polishes – they paint on beautifully and have lasted on me without any lifting or splitting. This particular polish came with the Pro Starter Kit, along with an LED lamp, base coat, top […] Read more
