A Five Minute Gel Manicure Using Your Favourite Polish

If you're a regular over on my youtube channel then you may have heard me go on about how utterly horrendous my nails are and how I can never get a nail polish to last more than about 5 seconds. Oh how things have changed.
I was lucky enough to get sent a Gel Touch Starter Kit* after talking to the lovely ladies at the Debenhams Press day a month or so ago and I was SO excited to try it out. I'd tried something similar before last year when I invested in Sensationail but the polishes are all so expensive and there isn't a great range of shades so it ended up being banished to the back of a drawer. The Gel Touch kit though is super awesome because it's basically a gel top coat and you can use your favourite polish undernearth. SO... this means that you can change up your manni on a regular basis whilst also maintaining chip free goodness for up to 10 days! It's also insanely quick... and only takes 60 seconds to set! I tend to go for two coats of gel to make it super thick and shiny but for one coat you're looking at 3 minutes to set all of your nails! How speedy is that!
 I spoke a little bit about the kit in my June Favourites video but to give you a quick run down: it will totally depend on your nails as to whether you get a full 10 days wear out of your gel mani but even on my nails (which are the worst in the universe) I got around a week so it must be good!
If you fancy taking a peek at just how easy it is, I created a video showing you my manicure routine which you can watch below:

What's your favourite polish right now? I feel a splurge coming on..

Also, just a quick note to say thanks so much for sticking with me whilst I'm going through my Paramedic training. It's been super intense and because of that my blog has suffered - which has made me so incredibly sad.. I miss you guys! I'm trying my absolute best and promise that in a few months it will all settle down again!
So much love!
