Brand New Nail Care From GOSH
As you may or may not know, GOSH have just released their brand new Autumn/Winter collection and I was over the moon when I heard that they would be adding to their fabulous range of nail polishes with a nail care range. If you've been reading Ellis Tuesday for a little while now then you might already know just how much I adore GOSH's nail polishes. All you have to do is take a look through my archive or Product Directory and you will see them pop up time and time again. Well now GOSH have taken their nail range to the next level and there are four brand new nail care products, of which I will be featuring three today. Each bottle is only £4.99, which for nail care is such a good deal. Oh and did I mention that they are currently in a 3 for 2 deal at Superdrug? Well that's as good an excuse as any to give these three products a try and for 2/3 of the price too.
First up we have the GOSH Nail & Cuticle Oil*. I've been meaning to add a nail and cuticle oil into my nail care routine for quite some time now and after trying this I regret waiting this long to actually do it. The difference that this oil has made to my nails and most importantly, my cuticles, has really been night and day. As you might be able to see in one of the photographs below, my cuticles were in a pretty sorry state. That photograph was taken right before I started implementing GOSH's nail care range into my beauty routine and the improvement has been fantastic.
The oil itself absorbs into the nail area almost instantly and doesn't leave behind a greasy or oily residue, like I worried that it might. A top tip from GOSH and probably from most nail technicians would be not to cut the cuticles, especially as they help to protect from germs and bacteria but to protect and strengthen the area instead.
Now that your cuticles are starting to take shape it's time to protect and prevent your nails from breaking, cracking or peeling with the GOSH 2 In 1 Nail Hardener*. Applied either on bare nails or on top of well-dried lacquer, this leaves your nails with a wonderfully glossy finish whilst simultaneously enriching your nails with Calcium and Iron. As someone with particularly soft nails who actually lacks Iron when it comes to their diet, this has been a real life or more like, nail saver for me. I've really noticed that my nails are getting longer, due to the fact that they don't break as soon as they start growing and I'm finally looking down at nails that feel a whole lot healthier too.
Then it's time for the final bit of finesse with the GOSH Gel Look Top Coat*. I am a big fan of a good top coat, even if I forget or don't have the time to apply one every time that I do my nails and this has quickly made it to the top of my top coats. This even adds volume to the nails which sounds like a bit of strange thing to say but what it does is it adds a gelly texture to the nails. It's like a thick, glossy coat which leaves your nails looking shiny and smooth and as though you've had them professionally done at a salon.
In addition to the three nail care products that I've reviewed today, there is another exciting nail care launch that I will surely be reviewing in the upcoming days and weeks. A little spoiler for those of you who haven't yet seen it online or in-store, it's fast dry drops! I'll be sharing my thoughts on the entire GOSH Autumn/Winter range over the next couple of weeks and months so be sure to check back for those.
So what do you think of the brand new GOSH nail care range? Which product or product sounds like your favourite? And what do you use to keep your nails in tip top condition?
