I couldn't decide which polish to try the beautiful Savanna Flakies by @whatsupnails over! So I tried four different ones. L-R:
Black: Momento Mori by @cirquecolors
Blue: My Car has Navy-gation by @opinewzealand
Purple: O Suzi Milo by @opinewzealand
Red: Amore at the Grand Canal by @opinewzealand
Which one is your favourite? I love the blue nail 💙😎

So when I got the new super cute Kawaii Emoji BM-XL321 plate from @bundlemonster I was really inspired to do some old travel stamp inspired travel nails! ✈️ Not sure if I achieved that but at least the plate is cute! 😂

Here's the tutorial for how I removed my gel nails! It was my first time removing gel and also my first time using @mitty_burns Soakies! Steps below:
1️⃣ File the nails to break down the gel - I didn't file mine very much which is why it required a bit of help loosening it at the end, make sure to file all over your nails for easier removal
2️⃣ Drench cotton pads in @opallacgelpolish Shine & Soak
3️⃣ Add cotton pads to @mitty_burns Soakies
4️⃣ Place Soakies on nails and leave for 15 mins
5️⃣ Remove Soakies, loosen gel with your nail and scrape away, rub another cotton pad drench in Soak & Shine over your nail to remove any last bits of residue
6️⃣ Apply cuticle oil to rehydrate your nail - I got mine through the link in my bio
Overall I would definitely use @opallacgelpolish again - it was super easy to apply and they had a great range of colours. I would probably use a peel off base coat though since it's easier to remove and I don't usually wear nail polish for longer than a few days so it's more convenient for changing to different designs. But if I was going to wear gel for a few weeks I'd definitely use this with the @opallacgelpolish base coat.

Here is my tutorial for applying gel polish! This was my first time using gel and it was actually quite easy - just make sure you don't get it on your skin! 😉
1️⃣Apply base coat
2️⃣Cure for 90 seconds
3️⃣Apply first coat of colour - I used @opallacgelpolish Appletini
4️⃣Cure for 90 seconds
5️⃣Apply second coat of colour
6️⃣Cure for 90 seconds
7️⃣Remove sticky residue - I used @opallacgelpolish 2 in 1 Shine & Soak
Voilà! All done! All products from @opallacgelpolish 👌🏻 Song is Zaza - Be Together (creative commons)

Tried my hand at gel polish!
I used four different gel polishes from @opallacgelpolish - Appletini (1), Popsicle (2), Life's A Peach (3) and Say I Do (4). I had never used gel before this and had avoided it because it seemed too difficult (and to be honest I never wear a nail design/nail polish for more than a couple of days at a time) but after using this gel system I would definitely use it again! So easy to use and quick to apply. I have some more swatches coming up soon so stay tuned!
