LeChat Lavender Blooms; Mood Color Changing Gel Polish
This was my first time using a LeChat polish and I am very impressed. It had great coverage with just two coats. I love the different color variations, and like that you don’t have to apply it over a base color like Orly Shadeshifter. You can see some of the other LeChat color options here.
Also, if you follow me on Facebook, you might have seen that I sculpted my first nail using Gelish clear builder gel and a nail form. My thumbnail cracked so I repaired and lengthened it. This video on YouTube provides great instructions on how to do this. Below is a picture of the nail that I sculpted. Unfortunately I have already since chipped the corner of the nail. I had a feeling that I applied the gel too thin and I guess I was right. I’m going to keep working at this until I master it though and I’ll share my findings with you. I also applied the builder gel on my other nails as an overlay to give them added strength and protection from all of the polish changing that I do. This gel does NOT soak off – it’s a hard gel that has to be filed off. It actually files down and shapes very easily with a 180 grit file.
