NOTD: BioSculpture’s – ‘Jackie’

In the last couple of months, I have been incredibly bored of my nails. 

I decided to take the plunge and go back to Bio Sculpture Gels. I do have 'at home' facilities to do my own gel manicures but let's be honest nothing is quite as nice as getting your nails did for you, and I am a little heavy handed when it comes to applying gel! 

Bio Sculpture are notorious for their wide range of colours, and the protective barrier in addition to strength which their gel formulas bring to the natural nail. They also tend to last closer to three / four weeks when having solid colour in comparison to OPI Gel / Shellac which can go for two weeks only.  But it all depends of course, on how much activity your fingertips see. For instance I don't do a lot of washing up, so my nails probably have a better chance of lasting well, compared to those who spend hours with their hands in water.

I have now had this colour (pictured) on over a week and I am still loving it - Although yes you are going to get 're-growth gaps' my nails feel so much stronger and have a good shape. 

The colour is part of the recent Hollywood Collection of colours, named after all our favourite ladies of the Hollywood hills. This colour in particular named 'Jackie' is a coral / orangey / pink which honestly looks different in a lot of lights, a bit like a sunset. I don't really think the photo I took above does it justice, however it does make your hands look tanned - and who can argue with that! 

With my nails, I paint them normally twice a week, and although I feel bad for my huuuuge stash of paints which are sitting pretty. I have not missed the frustration at last minute smudges, waiting for the paint to dry - or my bed sheets impressing upon last nights late night paint job! 

If you have the disposable income to do so, I really recommend going for a Bio Sculpture Gel manicure - you'll find most good salons do them. Cost wise they are around £30.00 every three to four weeks.
