House of Gelish – New Colors

House of Gelish - New Fall 2012 Collection

My Favorite Accessory, Fashion Week Chic, Cashmere Kind of Gal

Here’s my first mani with some of the new House of Gelish colors.  The light grey is Cashmere Kind of Gal, the dark grey is Fashion Week Chic, and the blue is My Favorite Accessory.  I love these colors, and they look really great together.  You can see swatches for all of the colors in this collection here.

I did have experience a first with this manicure though… the first time I applied the polish and cured it in the UV light most of my nails seemed to have this wrinking / rippling / bubbling effect.  I’ve been using Gelish for a year and a half now and have never had this happen before.  At first I wondered it if was an issue with my foundation or if the polish was bad, but some of the nails were ok while others looked warped.  The blue did great – no issues on either hand, but both grey colors had this wrinkling.  I also noticed that the dark grey polish has a thicker consistency than any of my other Gelish polishes.  I decided to try applying again, but with much thinner coats which solved the problem.  So I think it was just an issue with applying coats that were too thick.  Here’s what it looked like:

    Hi, I love your gelish swatches. The application is great as well. Just want to let you know that I used some of your photos on my website to help customers purchasing their gelish. With swatches it helps to see how it looks on nails. I hope this’s okay with you. Thank you very much.

    I just experienced the same issue. Only on my thumbnails. I was perplexed, but after researching online I found the answer. I applied it to that which made it ripple

    Thank you for posting this ???
