Hey guys! I hope you've all had an awesome week and are excited the weekend is here.
I've got some new gel polishes to share with you all from Canadian based brand- Bio Seaweed Gel. What makes Bio Seaweed Gel different from other gel polish brands on the market is their claim: "Zero dehydration, staining or weakening: the healthier gel polish."
But how and why is Bio Seaweed Gel different? According to them, they are 5 free, so no formaldehyde, toulene, DBP, BHA, or solvents. They are specifically designed to promote natural nail growth and shine. All products are said to be self-leveling with zero shrinkage. They also have a record in the industry for fastest removal- in under 5 minutes.
Their gel polishes also come in two different lines, a "3 Step Colour" line, with over 76 colors, which requires a top and base coat, and a revolutionary "UNITY All-In-One" line, available in over 114 colors, which has all three steps in one single bottle. I have one shade from each line to share with you all.
The 3 Step Colour gel I tried was Whimsical #52. It is a fine holographic silver glitter. I personally am OBSESSED with this shade. This is an incredibly difficult and rare color to come across in the gel polish world and I highly recommend you all pick it up. Its precise beauty is rather difficult to capture in photographs; although I have tried my hardest to accurately show it. I used three coats in the photos for complete coverage, but honestly you can get excellent coverage with two coats.
Because this color is part of the 3 step system, I used it with the "No- Sanding Base" and "No-Wipe Top." The No-Sanding Base Gel, as the name implies requires no sanding or drilling of the natural nails prior to application. It also doesn't require the use of any primers or bonders.
The No-Wipe Top coat is excellent too for a couple of reasons. First off it is scratch resistant, secondly it has an immense shine to it, and thirdly it cures completely to the touch with no sticky residue/inhibition layer; saving you both time and product from not having to wipe it clean.
The UNITY All-In-One Colour I tried was Starry Nights #152. It is a deep midnight blue with fine silver glitter in it. Two coats of this are you are completely done. My mind is still blown. I am so used to applying base and top coats, I barely knew what to do with my new found extra free time ;). Also, once cured it is completely dry to the touch without a sticky residue to be wiped away. This product not only saves you tons of time, but it also saves you lots of money.
A good friend of mine, who is a big name sake in the nail industry, taught me the chemical smell test once. Whenever you get a new nail product, open it up and smell it- if it smells like crazy gnarly chemicals, then you know there's crazy gnarly chemicals in it. When I opened up the bottles of Bio Seaweed Gel, I must say I was heavily impressed- very low odor. Less odor means less chemicals, which means it is technically better for you.
I loved the Bio Seaweed Gels that I tried and look forward to hopefully testing out more in the near future. In the meantime, I suggest you check out their site for more information and pick up some bottles for yourself to try.
