Jessica Geleration nails

I had an appointment for gel nails a few weeks ago. I'd won a competition by Le Petit Spa at Malmaison and could choose either a St Tropez spray tan or a Jessica Geleration nails. I've never had gel nails although my friends are all lovers and once i'd found out there is no damage to your natural nail I booked in.

I opted for a festive shimmery sparkly red. I love the colour and walking out of your appointment with dry smudgeproof nails that will hopefully last two weeks with no chipping is fantastic.

The only negative I had was the colour wasn't close enough to my cuticles, my thumb nail (on the other hand) is so far away it looked like two weeks growth.

I think they are a great idea for holidays but I won't be putting my lovely Revlon and Chanel polishes away just yet.

  2. I've heard a lot about doing the gel on your nails also. Did they really last 2 weeks, with no damage to your natural nail?

  3. Thanks Meera.

    Sara, They lasted just under two weeks as I started to pick at them...! No damage to the natural nail as long as you soak them off rather than peel them off. x

  5. Great colour! I really want to try the Shellac permanent nail polish as it's meant to last like gel nails do..

  14. Your nails are looking great. I also have geleration- not merely as decoration but an attempt to get my nails to a decent length without breaking!

    I opted for the most 'rouge noir' colour they do, but next time the girl told me to bring any of my own varnishes along and they could be set in with clear geleration. Hmm, what to choose...

  15. These look fantastic! I've never actually had gel nails before, but I really want to try them. Maybe I should make trying them a New Years resolution? You chose a lovely colour too!

  16. Lovely colour, perfect for the holiday season (yes, I'm pretending it's still around Christmastime, haha) x

  17. I've had Jessica gel nails a couple of times as well as the OPI version, they're definitely worth getting for holidays especially on your toenails as they last ages.
