I have been featuring a bunch of different gel nail options over the last few weeks and today I would love to share another great one that I found. Another great way to achieve gel nails without using a LED Lamp, is buying products like the Catrice Ultra Stay & Gel Shine 3 Step Nail System.
I am always on the hunt for nail products that will make my life easier and another great way to achieve a gel manicure is using a 3 step nail system. I was really excited when I saw that these polishes were included in the hamper I got from Cosmetix and I couldn’t wait to try them out. This is my first time using something like this and I wasn’t too sure how it would come out or what to expect.
This 3 step nail system from Catrice is a wonderful innovative method to get gorgeous gel nails that last longer, have a high shine finish and that makes your colour nail polish pop. The great thing about this system is that you don’t need a LED lamp and it removes just like any other nail polish.
Here’s how this 3 step Nail system is applied:
Step 1 - Start by applying the Ultra Stay & Gel Shine Base Coat and wait for it to dry
Step 2 - Apply your choice of Ultimate Nail Lacquer and wait for it to dry
Step 3 - Lastly you will apply the Ultra Stay & Gel Shine Top Coat to achieve that gorgeous gel look
So what did I think of this system?
To get a perfect gel manicure this 3 step system really works wonderfully. It’s really easy to use and you are left with amazing results. I really love these two nail polishes as it’s yet another easy way to get a gel manicure. I found them very easy to apply and they dried quickly, which is a great plus if you have 3 layers of polish on your nails.
This base coat is designed to help you achieve a smooth application of your colour polish while it protects and strengthens your nails. This base coat has a more jelly feeling and it’s quite thick, but once applied it dries fast. You can get the Ultra Stay & Gel Shine Base Coat for R61.95
This top coat helps to seal in the nail polish colour and it helps to maintain your manicure which makes it last a lot longer. It also gives you a gorgeous and lasting high shine gel look, it’s smooth to apply and dries fast. You can get this Ultra Stay & Gel Shine Top Coat for R61.95
