UPDATE: Marianne Newman Nails

I recently reported on my experience with Marianne Newman Nails, all the info here. Basically, its a new 3 min manicure. The idea is you can use a clicky pen to apply the colour and seal it in – it dries super quickly.

Well – after trying it out more, I am really disappointed with it. The kit of 3 polishes and 2 top coats was £38 – I think that’s pretty expensive. They are paint like and dry funny and the colours run easily, if your top coat isn’t adequate.

I did my nails and over 24 hours it faded drastically. I can’t stand chipped nails, so I just took it all off and it had badly stained my nail:

You don’ t have to use a base coat with this as it’s supposed to come off with water (if the top coat hasn’t been applied).

But clearly this has lead to staining:

It’s a horrible dark/yellowy stain, I can’t get it off with my polish remover. So I guess I will have to apply colour but the old fashioned way. I would seriously suggest doing a normal base coat, polish and top coat – it lasts sooooooo much longer. I am in love with Creative Nail’s Stickey Base Polish and Quick Shine Top Coat at the moment, would choose it over my usual Chanel base and top coat.

    I’ve heard that if you add a couple of denture-cleaning tablets to a cup of warm water, and soak your fingers in the solution, it should take the stain right off. That said, I’ve never tried it myself, so it could just be a load of bunk.

    Hey Pandy

    I thought it was baking soda? anyway I did what any sane person would do – painted over it with a dark nail polish! x
