I have wanted to try gel polishes for so long but with the lamp and difficult and time consuming removal process, I haven't bother investing in a gel kit so when I come across polishes which claim to have a gel effect finish, I always want to give them a go! So when I received these gorgeous polishes from Itsy Nails London, I was interested to see how the finish and longevity compares to my regular polishes.
I have the *Itsy DuraPRO Gel Effect Polishes (£5.99, 11ml) in the shades City Girl, Ooo La La and Drop Red Gorgeous. The polishes don't need a top coat, a UV lamp and there is no time consuming soak off removal process. I love the simple packaging and the wide brush which makes application so quick and easy!Al of the shades are ones that I would wear, especially the City Girl shade which is an autumn appropriate cool toned grey shade *basically the kind of shade I wear all of the time* and Drop Red Gorgeous which is a beautiful classic red - perfect for the upcoming festive season. All three shades apply smoothly, opaquely and quickly. The longevity which my usual topcoats from Revlon and OPI is great and definitely better than the non-gel effect polishes that I have been using recently which for the price is amazing! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
