New from Gelish® comes Mini Gelish® Color Gels. 

The gels come in an array of colors, apply like polish, with twist cap and applicator, but are cured in a LED lamp in 30 seconds or in two minutes in traditional UV lamps, just like gels. 

Gelish® stays on nails for three weeks with no chipping or peeling, and soak completely off in only 15 minutes.

Pony up and stay ahead of the style curve this season by adding the Urban Cowgirl collection filled with shades to suit any independent, rugged woman with a feminine touch.


Hello Pretty Summer Collection

SAY KONNICHIWA! to the newest color collection from Gelish MINI. Inspired by Japanese street style, Hello Pretty! features bright pops of pink, adorably cute purples and a little bit of fun for everyone.


My Review:
I tried the Gelish Hello Pretty summer collection and I'm in love! Then there's the new Gelish Urban Cowgirl Fall 2015 Collection which I'm so excited for! The Urban Cowgirl Fall 2015 Collection has the perfect colors for fall and I plan on getting my hands on them before my next manicure! Gelish is my favorite gel polish because not only does it actually last up to 21 days but the shine is absolutely amazing! Gelish Minis come in over 100 colors so there's sure to be a color that's perfect for everyone and every occasion. I've included a seventeen step process below to achieve an absolutely beautiful manicure every time. I know seventeen steps sounds like a lot but it's really not since most of these steps are so simple. Grab a sister or your BFF and have a girls night in! It's the perfect way to catch up and glam up at the same time!

  10. I think the Holy Cow Girl and the Do You Harajuku are my favourite colours they are perfect for fall when the nights are getting cooler but you are still desperately trying to cling onto the remainder of summer x
