Jessica Geleration in Fairytale

Hi everyone,

I have been using gel polishes a lot more recently as the staying power is fantastic, even more so on acrylic nails, and I love that there is no drying time (as a serial smudger this is a huge bonus for me!) My favourite at the moment is a Jessica Geleration polish called Fairytale. This is a super girly, extremely glittery, baby pink shade which I just love and makes me feel that extra bit special and sparkly when I wear it. You need about three coats to get good coverage and make the glitter really come through but for me this isn’t an issue as you don’t have to let it dry and it looks so pretty when it’s on.

I’m thinking I might take off my acrylic nails soon and just use gel polishes to give my natural nails a bit of a break. There are so many lovely gel polishes and I think it’s about time I added to my collection!

Do you use gel polish? Which are your favourites?

Thanks for reading,

Hannah xx


  1. I used to go for gel polish pedicure throughout my pregnancy, it lasts so long without smudging and it was brilliant. I have read that acrylic nails destroys our natural nails, is that true?

  2. @Shireen L. Platt yes I used to have quite nice natural nails but now they are very weak and a bit of a mess so I wouldn't really recommend acrylics if your natural nails are OK. I love the gel although I have a tendency to pick it off which also isn't good for your natural nails! x
