Gel polish. I don’t often do gel polish manicures because I like to change my nail colour 2-3x per week, but when I will decide to do them is when I KNOW I won’t have the time to paint them. I knew that I would be traveling a fair bit this week and next for work so I knew I wanted a manicure that would leave me looking put together 24-7 even though my brain was far from it (I am a stressful flyer)! Cinderella-themed beauty collections have captured our hearts/wallets this season so when I saw the shades and names of Red Carpet Manicure’s limited edition Cinderella Collection, I was enchanted IMMEDIATELY. I have used RCM polishes before, most recently for Christmas (here) and can never get over the shine and longevity of the manicure.
Well, Aren’t We Lovely, is a hot pink creme that just makes me happy looking at it. It fits the spring/summer sunshine we’re experiencing here in Vancouver and I just love how rich the colour is. Yes, I know there are a ton of “regular” polishes out there that look like this, but there is something special about a gel polish…*gazes off into the distance*…
For fun, I added some cuticle tattoos to make this manicure THAT much more girly.
I have a full review of the RCM LED Gel Polish system coming up because it’s SUPER easy to use. The polish consistency was easy to work with and the shiny finish is to DIE FOR. In total, I took about 30 minutes to prep my nails to being ready to catch my flight (yes, I cut it REALLY close) and although that seems like a long time, keep in mind that your nails are FULLY dry. You can literally go save the world and your manicure will stay perfectly shiny and intact. These photos were taken yesterday with my manicure being done on Friday and even as we speak my nails look amazing. I’m so in love!
