A Gel Polish Update
I was at work unreasonably early yesterday morning. Mr Busy's class (well, 6 out of the 8...yes, you read that right, he is in a class of 8!) attended a Melbourne Prayer Breakfast event. At least one of us was well rewarded for being at school before 6am. Look at that breakfast! Meanwhile, I was hungry by 9am, because no one should be eating breakfast at 5am. No one!
While I was sitting at my desk in the small, dark hours of the morn, with eyes still bleary, I snapped a pic of this week's gel nail polish, from Aldi. This is the taupe, which I didn't mind at all. It's less sheer than the pink from Rimmel, but it was nice and neutral, and didn't say "Hi, look at my nails". The photo above was taken on Day 7, and it was still looking magnificent. I could have pushed it a few more days, but I did noticed some edges were starting to lift. Not chip - no chipping! But a few edges looked less secure. When I went to remove the polish last night I tried to chip it off. No dice. The little corner that lifted was the only bit that came away.
My review for two-step gel nail polish? It is ideal for the non-nail polish wearers of the world, like me. It lasts at least a week and it is so smooth. I had none of the feelings about this nail polish, that I normally have with regular polish. The Aldi version was equally as good as the Rimmel London brand I used first, and the Aldi one only cost $10. If you can still get it!
