You may remember I tried a Gel Pro last year in the hope I could bring you another cheap alternative to gel nails but was massively disappointed. I found it thick and gloopy to apply and that it bubbled up as it dried which made for a less than perfect finish. I wasn’t interested in trying any more and when George contacted me and offered to send me a selection of their products I specifically told them I wasn’t interested in these. They sent them anyway of course and this colour stood out. I’m not sure I have anything like it, probably because it’s not bright, glittery or metallic but it’s so polished (pardon the pun) and a go with anything kind of neutral so I thought I’d give it a go.
My second experience with Gel Pro couldn’t have been more different than my first. It was a breeze to apply, not thick or gloopy at all and in truth I think the only reason it bubbled this time was because I went slightly too thick on my last layer. It’s like an entirely different product so whether they have changed things in the last year or it had been stored somewhere that had led to the formula going bad etc I have no idea but I would not actually recommend these. I also have a top coat to try which I will be putting against my Seche Vite to see whether 1. it gives a good, glossy finish to my other polishes and 2. it extends the wear time. The finish in these photos is that of the polish alone with no top coat which is pretty impressive so I’m hopeful.
