SEVENTEEN Gel Colour Summer 2015 – Swatches & Review

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a good week 🙂  I’m still catching up on my ‘to blog’ pile, which includes four lovely SEVENTEEN Gel Colour nail polishes I was sent a little while back to review. SEVENTEEN have just brought out 15 new colours in their Gel Colour range this Spring/Summer. These are gel effect nail polishes, and they claim to last for up to 8 days.

I haven’t tried any of the SEVENTEEN Gel Colour polishes since last year so I’d forgotten how nice they actually are, so I was pleased to be able to try these again 🙂

Seventeen Long Island Gel Colour

Hello! Recently every brand and their dog in the UK has been coming out with ‘gel-effect’ polishes. I’m a fan. I have always loved the look of gel nails, but without wanting to commit to a single colour for more than a couple of days they aren’t for me. So these gel-effect nail varnishes are perfect! I’ve come to realise though that these seem to be very hit and miss. Barry M stormed it with their Gellys, but Models Own seem to have had a bit of a fail with the HyperGels, according to the blogosphere. Nails Inc also seem to have made some lovely coloured ones, but their Kensington Caviar gel-effect topcoat seems to have been one big flop. And I honestly haven’t heard much at all on the Rimmel Salon Pros,  so now that Seventeen have brought out their take, how will they fare?

Seventeen Deconstructed Suede Effect

Hello lovelies! Another 3 for 2 victim today – those deals ALWAYS get me! Let me know in the comments what tempts you in the sales 🙂 I mostly get drawn by new products or whatever is in the featured section of the stand I’m at. In this instance, along with Seventeen Diamond in the Rough, it was this Deconstructed Suede Effect. Suede is essentially a fancy way of saying ‘matte shimmer’, as seen a few years ago with OPI’s Suede Effect. However it’s been a while since a matte shimmer has been released and the grungy colour of this polish really drew me in. My favourite thing about ‘suede effect’ polishes is that they can be worn two ways – they look amazing with and without topcoat but almost like totally different polishes.

Seventeen Diamond In The Rough

Hello lovelies! I have a slightly controversial polish for you all today. This was another impulse buy from Boots whilst in Bournemouth (oh I DEFINITELY made the most of the 3 for 2 offer!)… It was a curiosity purchase, as I’ve now seen so many brands doing similar things and I’ve been hoping for a while that one might just make it work. I think Seventeen just…might!

I’m talking Barry M Sequins, Nails Inc Beaded, Essie Belugaria… of them all I liked Belugaria best and this one is practically a dupe at half the price. I know this won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but see what you think. It’s really grown on me! Behold the Seventeen Rock Hard X-treme Nail Effects in Diamond in the Rough.
