A new brand has appeared in my gel polish palette, and I want to share the experience of its application.
Price 350 rubles
Place of purchase IM NOGOTKISHOP link
Volume 15 ml
The bottle is made of glass. The bottle cover is very pleasant to the touch, not smooth, but as if a little velvety.
The expiration date is indicated at the bottom of the vial. The order was completed in February 2019.
The color number is indicated on the lid. It is very convenient. I have all gel polishes in a box and without pulling out bottles of TM Sisters color it is immediately visible. But not only this highlights the gel varnishes of this brand. They still stand out in large volumes. For comparison, I photographed a bottle of Sisters next to a bottle of the well-known Bluesky.
I decided to conduct an experiment and see the filling of the bottles. To do this, gently lowered a clean toothpick to the bottom. Probably the bottle has a very thick bottom, because through the neck you can see that the bottle is almost full.
But this does not mean that the trademark is deceiving us, it’s me that the size of the bottle is only our visual perception and does not speak about the actual volume of varnish. There is definitely a lot of gel polish.
The brush is quite dense and wide.
It is convenient to apply gel polish.
CONSISTENCY AND AROMA
I have three colors of Sisters gel polish and they are different in consistency. Light shade (279 - pink) is denser, corresponding and it is more difficult to apply. Dark shades (161 - purple and 294 - burgundy) of medium density and it is a pleasure to apply them. The smell of gel polishes is specific, like all materials of the nail service. But I can not call it poisonous and nasty, completely incomparable with inexpensive Chinese gel varnishes. Sisters has a completely light, unobtrusive smell.
I am not a manicurist, I am an ordinary consumer. Therefore, please do not judge strictly my manicure. Recently I read a phrase with which I agree 100%:
The master will garnish beautifully with gouache, and a simple consumer will buy and be disappointed that he also did not succeed.
Not verbatim and it was a question of shadows, but this, I think, applies to the entire beauty industry. Do not exaggerate, I do not mean frankly "crooked hands".
So, as a simple consumer, I want to share the experience of an ordinary girl on maternity leave, who paints her nails in the kitchen while the child is sleeping.
As I wrote above, gel varnishes come across different densities, respectively, and they are applied in different ways.
First applied gel polishes to tips. It turned out that pink was enough for one layer, and dark shades were visible and had to apply a second layer.
Matching colors WAIT / REALITY
To the left during daylight, in the center - a photo from the catalog from the site, to the right - under artificial lighting. A slight error, perhaps, is only in shade 161. But in reality, it seems to me that he even looks better than the manufacturer promised. I would call this color eggplant. In general, I consider all colors successful, not a single one has disappointed.
On tips I was quite happy with the result. But the nails, alas, turned out to be more difficult. In particular, problems arose with pink - he stubbornly striped. It was not possible to completely flatten, the rest of the bands had to be fixed with a top. But dark shades are applied very easily. The gel polish is self-leveling: spreads over the surface of the nail plate, but does not leak (of course, within a reasonable time frame), there is the possibility of something to correct or remove the villi.
Three layers had to be applied to the nails.
The pink color in the photo shades a little and unevenness is visible, but this is before applying the top. With the top this is not visible at all. The burgundy color on the nails should also be applied no less than in three layers, otherwise it will appear through. This is especially noticeable in bright sunlight. But I applied thin layers, perhaps if the layer was applied thicker, then two would be enough. But I’m not sure how drying will take place then. I dried in a hybrid lamp for 1 minute each layer. The gel polish dried perfectly, no bloating occurred.
By the way, I used gel polish with the base and top of another manufacturer, the products showed excellent results in tandem.
In terms of resistance, I think it’s not correct to say, because the durability of a manicure determines many factors: the individual characteristics of the nail plate, the quality of the base and top, the quality of preparation of the nail plate, environmental factors and the quality of the most colored gel polish, perhaps, will be on the last in this list location. On my nails there were no problems with the weariness of the TM Sisters coating, as well as allergic reactions.
I liked the gel polishes. They are comfortably applied, self-leveling, do not form streaks. The palette matches. The colors are beautiful. The price is adequate for such a volume and quality.
Thanks for your attention!
