I felt like having a new Polish on my nails today and with the endless amount adding to my ''Never used yet pile'', I am finding it harder to choose one especially when I wake up in a mood of not knowing exactly what I want today.
I think the past few months have been mainly purples, reds and neutrals so pulling this one out is not surprising to me but I do feel a little let down with my choices , why purple?
Maybe it has something to do with it being around the time of my wedding anniversary celebrations and so I feel obliged to wear our wedding theme shade .
Anyway, The polish I thought I would give a try today is this one -
This is the Maybelline SUPER STAY GEL NAIL COLOUR in shade Surreal.
I have to admit I think this is the only one of the polishes from this collection that I actually own but no surprise it has to be the purple shade I have .
Boots have a vast range of 46 shades available and they are priced at £4.49 which if your into your high end polishes is only half the price and a bargain polish.
At the moment you can even take advantage of the 3 for 2 sale so you can grab a freebie.
What they say about the product-
Maybelline Forever Strong Professional Nail Varnish combines all the qualities of a profess
Having tried a few Gel Polishes , I have began to realise that they take a little longer to dry which for me is a little of a pain due to the fact I never get a minute to sit and pamper myself so I tend to have to be patient.
I should really make my nail polish dryer available at all times but unfortunately two of them are shoved on top of my wardrobes in boxes and rarely find their way out on display.
The polish is easy to apply , the thick brush gives you a thick coating to apply and helps to give it the smooth look you would expect form a gel look finish.
The polish I self is creamy and opaque and I have to admit it took 3 coats to get the perfect coverage .
With the many brands and collections of polish I have tried, the polish usually takes 24 hours only before it chips to that point I get that undying urge to start picking at it and that is it.
This polish does have fantastic staying power its my 3rd day now and it is doing well with no chips , I think it may last another two at maximum .
It says on the instructions to keep adding a daily dose of top coat, but for me I forget and have a feeling that is what is keeping the polish on not the polish formula itself .
The surreal shade is fantastic , a blue undertoned purple which looks quite light in the bottle but dries a little darker on the nail .
The finish is a gloss finish but not as high gloss as some I have tried although you can clearly see the shine here, it is a lovely shade and I think you will agree it would be perfect for a Halloween shade this year to.
Have you tried this polish yet, maybe a different shade?
Let me know what you think.
