Beauty UK Gel FX

Gel FX Polish from Beauty UK

Hey all :) I'm so so excited today, as I will be reviewing three new polishes in the Posh Polish range from Beauty UK. This time they have released six awesome shades of Gel FX polish, spot of for this time of year. Autumnal, going into Winter, Christmas and the New Year. There is a shade to suit everyone in this collection. 
Gel FX Posh Polish, a super high gloss finish and plumping formulation to make your nails appear fuller and give you a salon finish gel manicure. Beauty UK have pulled it out the bag again :)
The names of these polishes are inspired by exotic flowers, so we can all have a little bit of sun on our nails as the colder weather approaches!!

Midnight Iris - an intense and mysterious dark inky blue.
Crimson Rose - a deep dark velvet red with hits of burgundy.
Pink Orchid - the essence of pink rich with berry coloured undertones.
Blue Himalayan - colour of the ocean with the waves of intense electric blue.
Cafe Cosmos - cushioned by the colour of the clouds in the grey winter sky.
Poppy Red - vibrant red exploding with festive spirit.

Left to right: Midnight Iris, Crimson Rose, Blue Himalayan, Poppy Red, Pink Orchid and Cafe Cosmos.

Now don't these look absolutely awesome! A gel finish manicure without the need for a trip to the salon, in the comfort of your own home, and without the need for a UV lamp. Ticks all the boxes for me.. 
The three colours I'm reviewing today are, Midnight Iris, Blue Himalayan and Poppy red. 
So lets start :)

 Blue Himalaya, Poppy Red and Midnight Iris

Now for the swatches :)

Blue Himalaya

Applied beautifully and a two coater polish. A wicked shade of blue, which seemed to change from indoors to outside, blue to a purply blue. But still looked lovely. The shine was amazing, no need for a top coat! A beautiful colour for all the year round. 

Midnight Iris

OMG I'm in love with this colour! Such a dark and seductive blue. Again a two coater, an amazing shine, no top coat used. Hats off to Beauty UK for this one, great to apply you can see brush marks, but they disappear as the polish dries. The drying time seemed quite quick too :) I could see a Winter nail art right away with this colour. So I got out my Beauty UK Olympic Silver, and stamped some snowflakes. Just take a look at this :)

A bit early I know, but I think this looks awesome :)
Last but by no means least.....

Poppy Red

Again a two coater, awesome to apply, dried pretty quick. Amazing shine. But the colour!!! Oh WOW so so bright, vibrant and sexy, just a beautiful shade of red. Just right for Christmas! I bet Crimson Rose is amazing too, and these two together would look wicked.

So all in all I was really impressed with these polishes. All lovely to apply, quick drying time, and one amazing shine. Definitely a Gel finish. Any of these would be a great purchase for anyone who's after a gel effect, or a super shiny finish. Either way these polishes have WINNER written all over them :)
These polishes are priced at £3.49 each, and will be on sale in Superdrug stores nationwide and from Beauty UK from this weekend.
So what do you think, will you be getting any, and if so what colours?
Thanks for reading, and have a great evening :)
