Fell in love with this colour when I saw it in stock! Unfortunately the reality of it is a bit meh. I've tried it 3 times now and the colour is so washy it looks nothing like the cookies! It's very lumpy and lacking in sprinkles. Even with 3 coats it's still pretty boring (which is the opposite effect I was going for obviously!) Wouldn't recommend.
I'm very sorry you are disappointed! You do have to intentionally place some of the sprinkles so they don't all get pushed off, so it's not as easy as a plain colour to use. The colour is a pale pink, so isn't intended to look like the bright pink Hundreds and Thousands colour, but should appear like the photographs online. If you believe there is a problem with your polish or you are struggling to achieve the right effect, please feel free to flick us an email 😊
As some others have pointed out in their reviews, this colour can tend to be underwhelming if you don't get enough of the sprinkles, but with a little (or a lot sometimes haha) patience I've found that you just need to keep removing the excess from the brush into the mouth of the bottle until you can see there's enough on the brush. I've been pairing this with A Little Bit Nude as the pink base of this looks very similar, using this on just my ring fingers for a subtle look which I think is really cute!
There's definitely a knack to applying this, as you have to make sure there's a good amount of the speckle pieces on your nails. If anyone is struggling, I found it was easiest to wipe the brush a few times in the bottle to make sure I was happy with the amount of speckles, then dab it on at the nail base, then wipe upwards. Most of the speckles seem to stay on the nail this way!
It takes a little bit longer to apply because of this, but I'm really happy with the result!
I usually love Gelous colours and personally I was crazy to get this one. When I finally got it wasn’t quite what I’ve expected. It’s a bit lumpy, yes but I don’t find it a big deal due that the layers can be applied nicely anyway. I find that the little speckles don’t have enough contrast to be noticed and the pink base is so washed out that it doesn’t really stand out in any way. When you will get it you will notice that’s not a big difference until you look at this polish really close. Anyway that’s just my personal taste. I hope that rest of you enjoy it.
As usual their service was fast and the quality of their products amazing.
I have tried 3 different times to paint my nails but they didn't look nice. They looked a bit too lumpy when I did two coats.
I love the base and coat base of Gelous but not this polish.
