Semilac is a Polish beauty beauty brand that is one of the market leaders when it comes to gel polishes, and is now gaining ground in the UK due to its high quality products and very affordable prices. The products, which are also used in many salons, range from the special hybrid nail polish which combines gel, UV and nail polish properties and is currently advertised by Amy Childs, to more traditional polishes and nail treatments. Semilac may be the new kid on the block when it comes to UK nails, but it is certainly gaining ground quickly.
When it comes to nails, I am a red polish girl. I love deep red nails, with Gitane by Chanel being my colour of choice, although I do use other reds too. I was really interested to try one of the Semilac reds, especially as the price point was a fraction of that paid for Chanel. My nails are not in great condition – using a computer for so many hours per day is not good for hands, nor is playing in goal with a seven year old, as a consequence, my nails are brittle and currently quite short. Therefore red nails are perfect as I often think they look better on shorter nails – less vampish, but still stylish.
The red I went for was Intense Red. This costs just £4.30, but promises quite a bit for your money. The bottle itself is very attractive with a lace effect glass, and the applicator is a quick thick brush, which I like as it means that nails can be painted quicker. Semilac say this polish offers:-
• Easy application
• Long lasting results
• Hassle free removal
• Glossy finish
• Protects your natural nail
• Vibrant colour choice
• Salon quality nail polishes
I have to say that I agree. The polish was easy to apply with that thicker brush, and the finish was glossy and shiny. My nails actually feel harder with this on, and so far I have gone four days with no chips – that may actually be a record for me.
Another great product, and one which would make a great gift for a beauty lover, is the tropical manicure oil which has a beautiful peach fragrance. This product, which again costs less than £5, is perfect for keeping your nail beds in tip top condition using a range of vitamins and minerals that will avoid your nail beds drying out. With an applicator brush, this is again very easy to use and is something that would help your nails between manicures.
Semilac are offering something different to the nail market, great quality products with many prices under £5. Another idea for filling a Christmas beauty hamper.
