Rimmel: Super Gel Nails

Gel Nail Varnishes

First off let me just start by saying how good it feels to have my nails done again! It's been absolutely ages since I last done anything with my nails, but my love for anything to do with nails has never gone away.

I recently done an online shop through the Superdrug's website as I wanted to get some new nail varnishes, and they had the Rimmel Super Gel sets down to half price from £9.99 to just £5.00. So I decided to purchase 2 of the sets just to test them out, as being a nail technician gel nails ain't gel nails unless they are cured under a UV lamp in my opinion.

Rimmel Gel Top Coat

The first set that I ordered was the colour "Rock N Roll" which is this gorgeous red colour and perfect for the Autumn season.....and the Christmas season aswell. It says to add 2 coats of the red before then adding 1 coat of the gel top coat over the top, the gel top coat comes in the pack with the "Rock N Roll" so there's no need to purchase it separately which I think is good.

The consistency of the Super Gel really took me by surprise as I was half expecting it to be quite a thin consistency but it wasn't, it was the correct thickness to me of what a gel polish should look like. I also found it really easy to apply and it didn't go in the slightest bit streaky like I expected it to aswell.

This claims to have results of up to 14 days of gel colour and shine, I'm on day 2 so far and none of them have chipped or lost there shine at all which I'm happy about. I use my hands quite a lot during the day as I look after my nephew Monday to Friday whilst my sister and brother-in-law are at work, so I'm constantly doing stuff with him and cleaning so my hands do go through quite a bit haha.

I have already got another 1 of these "Super Gel" kits in the shade "Soul Session" which I am looking forward to trying out next, and can definitely see myself purchasing a few more of these Super Gels in different colours.
