Korres Gel Effect Nail Colour Watermelon and Royal Red

Korres Gel Effect Nail Colour Watermelon and Royal Red Swatches Sparkle PR
It has taken me way to long to get swatches done for these beautiful Korres polishes, kindly sent over by Sparkle PR. But now that we are having more British Summer like days (rain) I can sort of get things done here and there and wanted to get started with these first.


Korres Gel Effect polishes have a high shine and are durable and long wearing (up to 10 days). They are infused with almond oil, amino acids and pro-vitamin B5 to nourish and strengthen your natural nails as you wear them. They don't require a topcoat to look good but I would recommend them to ensure an extended wear time. They are 10 free and chip resistant too.

All photos are 2 coats with no topcoat. So let's have a look at them.

Watermelon is a lovely amaranth, redish-rose pink. Both polishes have that nice, wide brush to help get great application, right up to the cuticle.

Royal red is a beautiful, bright, post box red.

Both polishes have a gorgeous formula and applied beautifully. They were perfect in 2 coats and were easy to clean up. Although I didn't see or experience any staining, the colours are super rich and I would recommend that you do wear a couple of coats of a good base coat, just in case.

The Gel Effect range from Korres has 18 different shades and a top coat, so plenty to choose from and these are available from Look Fantastic for £8 a bottle.

I also felt in the mood for a little bit of nail art using these colours and one of the stamping plates from my unused pile.

The plate I used is Bundle Monster/Maniology BM-S313. I love the little cassette tape image, it brings all the memories back of the mix tapes I used to use, and hovering over the play and record button on Sunday, trying to get the song recorded with the smallest amount of talking possible, then getting annoyed when the record button stayed up and you missed your opportunity that week, so had to wait until next week's charts to attempt it again.

Who was the first person you made a mix tape for or about? Was it your first love? Or a break up? or just a really awesome mix tape for yourself?

Hope your week started off on a high note and continues to be good!
