I am very excited to introduce you all to one of Japan's best selling gel companies- Kokoist. Kokoist is one of the primary gel leaders in revolutionary high quality products and after playing around with a few of them, I can honestly say I am obsessed!
Forget gel polish, soak off gel all the way. The potted white and black gels that I tried were hands down the best quality I have ever tried. They were so incredibly well pigmented, my mind is still blown. A one coat wonder black! I can't believe it, but its true folks- Maxi Black. And the same goes for the white, Bluey White, so incredibly well pigmented. They both painted on so smoothly, effortlessly like butter, self leveling to a beautiful finish. The potted gels retail for around $17.
The Gem Gels! Talk about a major game changer, and huge innovation. Kokoist partnered with Kyocera in Kyoto to manufacture and synthesize "kyoto opal", "cultivated with a quartz-grain structure identical to that of naturally occurring opal." This magical stuff is sooooo fun to play and experiment with. Gently fold it from the bottom up, do not stir the product, for best results and to maximize the opal particle's brilliance. It is incredibly easy to work with, and self leveled nicely. I have the gem gel shown here in two shades, in White and Garnet, however it comes in a total of 5 colors, and they retail for around $20.
I highly recommend you give this brand a try. There is clearly a reason why they are one of the best sellers in Japan.
I am just grateful we can finally now have their products stateside.
