During October I was kindly sent a Stylfile Gel Polish Remover kit to try at home. Being a big Apprentice fan myself and a Stylfile fan, I was excited to try the remover kit myself and see how easy it is to remove my gels a different way than using foils.
The problem with using foils is they can be tricky to apply and hold on the nail securely. This is where inventor Tom Pellereau saw a gap in the market and created this simple way to remove them. He discovered that 52% of women believe that gel polish damages the nail. I would be in this 52% if I were voting in this poll, but according to Tom this is down to poor removal.
I am up for a challenge to see how easy it is to remove, and if my nails feel damaged and brittle after removal. 2 weeks into my gel nails being applied it is time to remove them using the kit and reapply some fresh colours. I have used a normal nail polish and a glittery one, to see if the remover two popular gel nail types.
The kit retails for £16.99 which has everything needed to remove your gels.

I popped into Claire’s Accessories a few days ago and managed to pick up a pack of Lilygrams for £2 in their sale, reduced from £9. Recently, I’ve been using false nails and gel extensions a lot more, especially press on ones. With my final deadlines coming up it has been hard to pamper myself so press on nails have been a perfect add on to my beauty routines. I’ll be reviewing these as if I’d purchased them for the full price. Included in the pack is a nail file, nail glue, instructions and 24 nails in 10 sizes.
Price: £9. Purchased for £2.
Time Trailed: 4 days

Just a quick mention and mini review of Barry M’s new nail paint from the Silk collection.
I bought it as part of the 3 for 2 in Boots not long ago and gave it a try 2 weeks ago, and I’m impressed! It applied very smoothly with one coat and dried semi matte, almost frosted in texture, which I was not expecting. It almost dries to a soft textured matte rather than quite rubbery as some brands matte polishes are. Best part is it stayed on for around 3 days without chipping too badly and I kept it on for a week and a half and at the end of that time it still looked great and that’s without using a top coat or base coat! I’ll definitely be investing in more when they release more colours!
There are currently 6 colours in the collection, priced at £3.99.
This set of Nails Inc Capsule Colours has been reduced to £25 from £57! It will be on sale until Thursday 12th December 2013 or until stock runs out. You get 8 4ml colours, perfect for trailing colours, as stocking fillers or as nail varnish to go, and a full size Kensington Caviar gel effect nail polish.
Grab it while you can!

After a bad experience overall with Nails Inc, ever since that point I’ve not bought anything from the brand, however before I used to purchase a few products here and there.

Time spent trialing: a little over 3 months. Price: £18
