Glossed & Found...




Last week at church I noticed my friend's nails being super glossy & beautiful - I assumed they were Shellac until she told me she'd recently bought this kit at the drugstore. I'm totally loving my CND Top Coat but I paint my nails in the evening and most of the time I fall asleep and wake up with sheet imprints, lol! Anyway, while grocery shopping at Wal-Mart I decided to pick up this kit - I chose 'Glossed & Found' as my polish color. The total price was right around $12 for the set & the color itself.

So here's my final review: I love it. Why? Because it dries in SECONDS. You apply the primer & within a matter of seconds it's totally dry. You apply your color and BAM, it's dry. I always apply a second coat just to reinforce the color! After I finished the top coat I probably spent 15 minutes total and it was fully dry - perfectly smooth. Not to mention, it does give the plumpy, glossy, & full effect that Shellac gives! So this is a highly recommend - especially if you are impatient with waiting on your nails to dry. 

The main reason I did this post is because a few months back I tried this (found at Walmart) and it was a huge waste of money. Avoid the Fuse Gelnamel Polishes at all costs. After the product would dry - within hours it will just pop off. :/

  4. I'll have to try this...I'm a sucker for new nail products. I have to say though, Seche Vite top coat is awesome!! I did my nails last night, slapped on that top coat, fell asleep, and NO sheet prints.
    $12 is a great price point for all those products.

    1. AnnaLise, I just used regular nail polish remover to take it off! That should work for you as well. XO!

  6. Have you tried using this with just any color? Or does it need to be a loreal color in order for it to work??

    1. It has to be a color that comes with the 'gel' set. They have 15 colors now I think? These colors dry super quickly so you'll def. prefer them over normal colors.

    1. I think it depends because for me it can last a couple of weeks but I also like pick at my polish so I change my polish out every 4-5 days. If i didn't pick it would last two weeks!

  10. I also purchased this polish set a month or two ago. The high gloss is great but do you have a problem with the polish just completely peeling off after a couple hours? I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong but it does that every single time! Lol

    1. Mine didn't do that! Like - at all! It wears just like a regular polish or gel for me! I hate that happened!
