New Look Pure Gel Swatches & Review

New Look Pure Gel Swatches & Review

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!

Dark Khaki

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.

Shell Pink

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.

  1. Love the nude and pink, those colours are gorgeous.
    I’ve not tried the new look polishes, I never go in to a new look so maybe I’ll have to make a little trip!

    • I hadn’t before I received these! My mum thought it was safe to give them to me because it’s a brand I normally buy from myself so won’t already own them! Like I said, really impressed with the quality. X
