remember those hyper gel nail polishes from models own.. well now they've launched a clear top coat! I thought this was a brilliant idea as you can add a gel effect finish to your whole nail polish to collection with just one product. 

I've tried it over a topshop's green room polish to show you how it looks..

models own hyper gel topcoat*
the formula feels almost thick (but not gloopy) and it leaves a slightly raised layer for that gel effect finish. it dries slightly slower than some of my speed top coats but as you can see the effect is nice and glossy! I like the wide brush as I can practically coat the whole nail in one sweep and I especially love this top coat on my pedicure as it makes my nails look plumped! 
is it as good as my all time favourite sech vite? for shine definitely, for chips not quite.. I would however reach for this often as I like the novelty of the gel effect.
overall a nifty little addition to my top coat collection. have you tried it? let me know what you thought!

  1. I can't get over how nice that nail varnish is, why do I not own any Topshop colours?! I'll definitely have to sort that out! Are there any other shades you'd recommend? I'd like a muted pink and perhaps a blue too?

    The top coat looks really shiny and definitely gives your nails that gel look. x

  2. Love this shade, and the top coat makes it look amazing with the gel finish! I really must check out some of the Topshop colours because I haven't tried any either, but they look stunning!

  5. Shame about the formula. I wished it dried quickly and lasted as long as Seche Vite! :(
