The Manicure Company is a new brand from Ireland. They offer a line of gel polish and builder gel, but also other nail care items.
The Manicure Company Stone
Stone is a beige gel polish with creme finish. On the swatches I am wearing three coats with top coat.
The Manicure Company Concrete Jungle
Concrete Jungle is a dark grey gel polish with creme finish. On the swatches I am wearing three coats with top coat.
The Manicure Company Balloon Ride
Balloon Ride is a blue polish with creme finish. On the swatches I am wearing three coats with top coat.
The Manicure Company Get Noticed
Get Noticed is a neon pink gel polish with glass fleck shimmer finish. On the swatches I am wearing two coats with top coat.
The Manicure Company Cuticle Butter
The cuticle butter is very hydrating and can feel a bit greasy on the hands, but it does really hydrate the cuticles/hands well. I wouldn’t use it as your daytime hand lotion, but instead at night before going to bed to let the butter really soak in.
Overall I really like The Manicure Company gel polishes. The colours are beautiful and the application very smooth with the flat brush. The colours took 2 – 3 coats to be completely opaque which is great. They really do come across as of great quality products.
All the bottles come with the colour shown on the cap which I really like, especially the fact that the cap represents the actual colour in the bottle. So cool!
The only downfall is that the bottles are quite small, only holding 8ml of gel polish. They retail at €9.95 per bottle (£8.39ish) which I guess is an average price for a bottle of gel polish.
Another thing I noticed was that the No Wipe Top Coat had a rather unpleasant smell… it is odd as the other polishes had a light neutral, your usual gel polish smell.
Other than that I was rather pleased with the products. I haven’t had a chance to test the longevity as you are meant to buff nails before applying and I do not buff my (finger) nails. However, I am wearing Get Noticed on my toes, and a week later, they still look as perfect as on the day one :)
