New Look Gel Nail Varnish in Electric Crimson review

What the brand says
New Look’s gel polish nail collection features 15 fabulous shades for rich colour and a hi-shine finish. Unlike traditional gel nails there’s no need for a UV lamp, perfect for saving money on those monthly trips to the salon.

The Lowdown
I’m really loving how New Look have completely revamped their makeup collection recently. The range has doubled and there’s now a full range of makeup including foundation, blush, lipstick, eyeshadow and more. For the review I’m trying out Electric Crimson, a vivid vibrant pink nail varnish.

The varnish has a medium coverage and it took 4 coats to fully cover my nails. It dries pretty quickly and there’s no gloopy consistency.

The varnish is a great price and it has a lovely shiny finish that intensifies when reflected under the light. Whilst it claims to last 7 days with a topcoat, I was disappointed to find it chipped after 2 days. Admittedly I didn’t use a topcoat but I still expected it to last a little bit longer without chipping without.

I give it 3/5
