Lady Lauren is a glitter and since I struggle to remove normal Gelicious polish I really didn't want to,,, well,,, you know try and get rid of the GLITTER!
I don't know if it was the peel-off or LL but I made a hash of this mani. The glitter pooled along the sides even as I was zapping them in the light.
Once I finished I attacked most of the edges with a file because it was so uncomfortable. The worst is my thumb.
Anywhooo I'll see how it goes.
Alrighty - the results!
7 days in 2 nails lost their gel - both had thick ridges of gel down the side so I wasn't surprised.
Finally after 15 days I had had enough chipping from one nail - and I had stained the polish with hair dye - to remove it all. My regrowth was also long.
Here you can see the already peeled polish, the chipped nail and my regrowth.
So I soaked. And the I peeled back a little and kept repeating. But unfortunately that gel must have set pretty hard over the fortnight.
I also couldn't spend much longer than because I needed to get to an appointment. So I did start to stratch off when it started taking too long.
I wish I had more time to do it properly because I ended up damaging the top layer of my nails. They have all since buffed out, except for a thumb nail, but I was pretty angry at myself.
So things I have learnt -
After a long shower or hair washing you may get a little lifting - leave it alone to dry and reset.
Thick edges that touch skin peel away easily
It will last a fortnight
It will take a long time to remove the polish if it has stayed in you nails for so long.
I will probably never use the other Gelicious clear coats again. Peel off for the win.
