Calgel Nails- My New Obsession!

Hi ladies,

Long time no post!

I was working at the Beauty UK Show at the NEC in Birmingham this weekend doing demos for Christian Brows at the Izabelle Hammond stand.

Half of the stand was dedicated to Christian Brows and the other half was dedicated to Calgel nails!

The Calgel system is a less harsh option than acrylics or Shellac as it does not damage your nails at all and you can take it off at home!

It's semi permanent and it is used in conjunction with a UV light to make it adhiere to your nail and to set it. It comes in 90 different colours and you can also mix them so the colour spectrum is endless! It can be used in nails and toes.

If you look after your nails it can last up to 6 weeks! The girls asked me if I wanted to have my nails done as I've never had any gel overlay before. I'm a complete convert!

I went for a nude look. I want it to play it safe as I do get bored very quickly of my nail colour and I am one of those that change nail polishes maybe twice a week.

So far I am absolutely loving this colour!

Thank you Robyn! I absolutely love them! 
I can't stop looking at them.
They are the perfect nail for work or play :)

I am seriously considering doing the training with the girls at Izabelle Hammond to learn how to do these babies to add them to my service spectrum.



What do you think?

    Hi Mercedes! Glad you had a nice day at the show, my mom said you were so lovely. So nice to hear you&#39;re enjoying Calgel too. I get bored of colours too easily, so I usually just put clear Calgel on, and then apply my nail varnish on top, so when I get bored I can just change the polish, helps it last longer too. :) x
