Nailpad

I think you could say that we all love to paint our nails, not just to look pretty, but also to protect them from all the chores that we do. As we’re always in a rush, invariably it’s a bit of a balancing act with painting our nails on the go. You know the story, grab a magazine, hand down, open nail polish and then it slides …whoops it’s a full-on nail polish spillage alert!  That’s where the clever handbag-friendly Nailpad comes into play as it ideal with those awkward speedy manicure moments. And we at The Amazing Blog are always suckers for a new gadget!

The Nailpad concept was created by two time-poor twins Tori and Carrie, who both saw a niche in the market for a stable, portable, foldaway manicure base with a nifty holder for nail polish. The purpose of Nailpad is to make home manicures (or pedicures) easier, steadier and less stressful. Not only this but it can also be adapted for placing on knees, whether on the sofa or bed, on the floor (for toes) or flat on a table. We were pleasantly surprised by how light and comfortable the Nailpad was to use. It's also small and neat just perfect for your handbag, and yes we’ve even tested it out on the tube to work!

What we particularly like is the ease of using the Nailpad on the go. The Nailpad comes in two colours, bright pink (easy to find in a handbag) and shiny black (less obvious when on the go). You too can discover the NailPad for £12.95 each on the website here.

Gelogics by Pretty Woman NYC

Trying to achieve a salon quality finish at home while painting your nails can be a frustrating and tiresome endeavour. We here at The Amazing Blog know all too well how disappointing it is, after spending a good half an hour painting our nails, to see them chip after only a day or so. Paying to get them done professionally isn't always financially ideal. Therefore, we are always on the lookout for new and exciting products that will prolong our manicure. So we were delighted when Pretty Women NYC  sent us a collection of their Gelogic Nail Polishes to try.

The Gelogics mimic traditional gel manicures, just minus the damage and double the speed. The self-leveling formula of their Titanium Top Coat provides an even coverage that is chip resistant and dries quickly and without the use of a UV or LED lamp. What's more, because the polishes are only mimicking the desired effects of a gel manicure, they can be easily removed with regular nail polish remover and cotton wool. To attain the salon quality finish the products promise, apply two layers of polish to the nail followed by a layer of Gelogics Titanium Top Coat to seal it. The collection contains a rich and diverse array of colours for you to choose from, and we adored the Teal Alpha Jewel Shade, which was a refreshing teal with small flecks of glitter, and is pictured above! Whatever colour you are after, Gelogics is guaranteed to have the perfect shade for any situation, whether you're looking for something a little fun or something more sophisticated Gelogics will have the shade for you. On top of all this, each Gelogic product is entirely guilt free as they are all vegan, cruelty-free and “five” free (free from toluene, camphor, formaldehyde Resin and DBP.) meaning you can look good and feel good at the same time!

This collection is no fuss and guarantees that salon finish from the comfort of your own home. You can choose from their wide range here for £6.16. Unfortunately, the prices are only available in dollars as the company is based in America, but as an international customer, you can use PayPal.
