I‘ve searched long and hard for the perfect nail kit to strengthen my flaking and peeling nails that were in desperate need of help. And I think I’ve found it! This Perfect Formula Gel Coat Nailcare set is one I received as a gift from my mum in December. It comes with a crystal nail file and five full sized nail varnishes, including two bottles of their famous Pink Gel Coat. Each nail varnish is enriched with strengthening proteins to help keep your nails healthy, strong and very shiny! It retails at £34.50 on QVC, which is amazing value for the goodies you get inside…
Firstly, the set is packaged beautifully. Perfect to gift to someone with troubled nails – but I’m sure once you see it you’ll want to keep it all for yourself! The set comes in a very elegant, understated box which pulls out like a drawer. I like to keep my nail varnishes in there for the time being but the plastics removable to use for storing little bits later on.
And when you slide it open, there are five beautiful bottles of nail varnish: two pink gel coats and three very classic colours. The first shade is Dazzle, a frosted shimmery sparkle. This would be perfect for a hint of shimmer or as an overcoat for a bolder colour. The second shade is Greige, a gorgeous lilac grey putty shade. I have been wearing this non stop all of January (hint: you might see it featured in my January Favourites post on Friday). And the last shade is Diva, a bold glossy red, perfect for statement nails. This one is an excellent pedicure colour too.
There’s also a full size crystal nail file. You may remember my 2015 favourites where I raved about the Leighton Denny crystal nail file – it now has a rival! I’ve decided to keep this one in my manicure box at home and have my (slightly battered) Leighton Denny one for my handbag on the go.
There’s a reason why this kit is called Perfect Formula – I can honestly say that this is the best thing that I‘ve ever tried for my nails (and trust me, there’s a lot I’ve tried). If you’re thinking that this set is a little out of budget, the Pink Gel Coat alone will be enough to introduce you to the range – I just love the fact that you get some lovely colour choices with this set for only a few pounds more!
