I've heard good things about ACI Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat when used as either a base coat or between coats so I thought I would give it a try. I applied my go-to base coat of Barielle, Hydrating Ridge Filler. I then applied a coat of High Tide, a coat of Gelous, a coat of High Tide and lastly a coat of ACI In A Hurry Quick Dry Top Coat. Gelous does take awhile to dry so it did extend application time but let's see if it extends wear time as well as I've heard.
After 4 days this is pretty impressive especially since I wasn't very delicate with them.
After 6 days my index nail looks pretty rough but this nail is really thin and flexible right now not to mention it is peeling. My other nails look pretty good still. Sorry about the lack of sunlight in this photo; we've got a storm moving into So Cal right now. This is my left hand so let me show you my right hand (dominate hand) too.
Again, my index nail is looking rough but this one is in the same condition as the one on the left. My other nails are looking pretty impressive after 6 days.
The final verdict is in; I think this method definitly extended wear time for me.
Bonus: You can win both this polish and a bottle of Gelous in my WIN-ter Wonderland Giveaway!
What do you think? Is this impressive wear for 6 days?
