Review: Red Carpet Manicure Gel Varnishes in Publicity Stunt, Sands of Time and Matte Top Coat

Throughout advent I am going to try and get two posts out every week day, the advent one which is a sort of mini review or first impressions for the products I get in the advent calendars and the post that would normally go out on that day too. The weekends will be just the advent calendar posts as I don’t normally do anything else on the weekends at the moment.

These are all nail varnishes that need a UV light to set and they’re supposed to last two weeks.

Today’s advent presents were a tea light in icicle (I think, going by colour and scent description on the back) and a Philip Kingsley elasticizer in geranium and neroli.
