Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat -- Review & Results



Hello, everyone!  How are all doing?  I hope you're all doing well.  Today's post is a review on Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat, including before and after pictures.  I used 100 Sephora points to receive this mini bottle and I was excited to share my opinion on this rather expensive nail product ($30 full size @ Sephora!)  Let's get into it! 

The purpose is to protect and strengthen your nails while providing a sheer pink shade that also cancels out any yellow tones.  As you'll see in my "before" pictures below, my nails are not looking their best.  Lately, I've done many nail looks here and even with wearing more polish, my nails have become brittle.  I've been dealing with A LOT of peeling and breaking, which isn't common for me.  That's the main reason I wanted to give this product I try. 


Here's my before pictures... one of each hand.  Below are my "after" pictures.  I love the pink shade how quickly it drys.  Once applied it gives a beautiful glossy wash of pink, which I love and it does cancel out any yellow tones just as it claims to do.  

However, I'm very disappointed with how quickly it started chipping and peeling.. we're talking on day 2.  I continued to use it for an additional three days and even reapplied twice with the same issues.  Now, ladies this is a PROBLEM and a pretty expensive one if you buy the full size!  

                       

After having less than awesome results, I went off to Sephora's site and the overall rating is 4.2.  People clearly loved this product.  As I read the more recent reviews, several commenters said they got this with Sephora points like I did, were not happy at all.  They were experiencing the same problems.  It makes me wonder, did I got a bad batch or something?  What do you think?  Although I love the sheer pink, I would not recommend this product as it stands and plan on looking into another option.  

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my review.  Have you tried this product or something similar?  Let me know down below!  I'd love to hear about some alternatives.  If you enjoyed please google+, comment and join this site (follow) for more.  You can also now follow me on Bloglovin' with the button that is on the upper right panel of this page.  You have an amazing rest of your day! 

Love ya lots,
Richelle

  1. Oh wow this stuff looks cool! I usually use Jamberry Nails because nail polish never works on me. I have done posts on it before but I might have to try this out! Great post, keep up the good work.

    1. Hi Juliana! Thank you so much... I like Jamberry wraps as well, but sometimes the edges will lift on me and my long hair gets stuck ;( I prefer using them on accent nails and I love using them that way. Thanks for commenting :)
