Color Street Review
Imagine the perfect manicure in about 15 minutes, with no drying time, no gel and no harm to your nails. You’re right, I couldn’t either.
I must admit, when I purchased my first set and it arrived in about two days, even though the set looked great in the packaging, I was a bit intimidated by the whole process.
At 58 years old, I have tried all there is, from the original tips that we glued on with powder filler to the more modern gel tips.
I have also tried gel polish, which we can probably all agree works, but which I found to be very damaging to my nails. It literally took months for my nails to become strong again after I stopped using the gel. It probably wasn’t the gel that made them almost paper thin but rather when the polish was changed, the intense filing and the tools were not good for my nail beds. You can read more about the health behind the nails here.
I settled on just going for my weekly manicures or doing them myself and using an over-the-counter gel polish. It wasn’t an ideal solution, but it worked well enough until I found this product.
So, back to the process of applying the Color Street Polish. It’s easy, fast and clean. Yes, the first application was a learning experience but not hard at all. If you check out the Color Street site, there are very clear tutorials as well as step-by-step instructions, but after applying the first time, you’ll get the hang of it.
The trick in my opinion, is to line it up right in the middle of the nail as close to the cuticle as you can get and just stretch it out over the nail, smooth out the side and file off the extra. That simple!
I’ve used a solid color set, glitter, and – most recently – the French set. I thought the French would be the hardest to apply; actually, it’s the easiest. The tips go on first and, because you are starting at the end of your nail, it’s very easy to stretch out – the clear coat goes over the tip. Simply add shine and a very natural look.
Each set I have used has lasted ten days to two weeks. They come off with regular nail polish remover. I did find taking off the French a bit more challenging because of the two layers, but because I did it naturally, no soaking or filing, my nails remain healthy and with no stains from the colors.
There are so many color choices and patterns, it’s even better than walking into a nail salon. There you just pick out colors. With this product, you can pick out colors, patterns and/or mix and match, all delivered right to your house.
If you haven’t tried this yet, I highly recommend it!
