I received these polishes for Christmas and I’m only now just getting them up on my blog! The Pure Gel longwear gel polish from New Look is a gel-look nail polish that doesn’t require UV light to cure and promises 7 days of wear. I have four colours to show you plus the top coat from the same range. New Look have recently revamped their beauty range so I won’t be able to provide any prices or links for these exact polishes but you can find their new style Gel Nail Polish on their website (and in stores) for £3.99 each. I’m pretty sure this was the price of the previous range too. The new range looks so good! If I wasn’t on a no buy I would definitely buy some of the beauty products.
Although this is named ‘light brown’ it’s definitely a nude! It was a little sheer on application and needed 3 coats but as you can see, it has a lovely shine to it even without top coat. I think this is now been named Fawn Pink in the new range.
This probably could have done with a third coat but you can get away with 2! Again, this has a beautiful gel-like shine to it. I’m pretty sure this is the same colour as Smoke Grey from the newer range, but don’t take my word for it!
I have a think for khaki right now! I swear half my S/S wardrobe will involve it. This is a lovely khaki green polish and has great application with just 2 coats. The Dark Khaki in the new range looks a slightly different shade on the website but it could be the same.
This is a lovely soft light pink. It does need 3 coats as it was still a little sheer after 2 coats. The only colour I can see in the new range that might be similar to this is Rose Quartz, but it looks a little darker.
As you can see from the swatches, these polishes have an amazing gel-like shine to them even without the addition of the top coat – which makes them even shinier if possible! As for 7 days wear? I did actually trial this but unfortunately, and stupidly, I didn’t save the photos from it. I wore Dark Khaki for 10 days and I only have a little tip wear. I found this really impressive, as I normally chip my nails after just a couple of days. I really hope they haven’t changed the formula and it’s just an update to the bottles.
I might be making some purchases from the New Look beauty range in the future. I’m quite impressed by the quality you get for the price.
