Today’s review pertains to a gel polish from Aimeili, #110 Prunus Persica. This color is a beautiful lavender tinted pink that is very classy and a great neutral color for those working in more reserved fields.
You can order this polish from Amazon or from the Aimeili website for only $6.99 USD, so it is definitely an affordable gel polish. It comes packaged in a sturdy cardboard box as shown below, and an instruction sheet detailing how to prepare your nails and how to use the polish is tucked inside.
Because gel polishes need to be kept away from light to prevent accidental curing inside the bottle, you can’t tell what the color is from its initial outward appearance as all Aimeili gel polish bottles look alike. Thankfully, they do have a sticker on the top of the bottle that is the same color as the formula inside with “110” printed on it to indicate the name. Oddly enough, Prunus Persica is not mentioned anywhere on the packaging, so I only learned what its name was by going to their website!
Upon opening the bottle, you will notice the beautiful color of the polish. Some have commented that they thought this polish was more lavender, but I think it’s more on the lilac pink side in a classic creme formula. It does match the sticker on the bottle quite well, so there aren’t any surprises once you actually have the product in your hands.
The brush is easy to manage, and the formula stays put, making this a great polish for beginning and pro gel users.
Because it is important to apply thin layers when using gel polish, I needed to paint and cure 3 coats of color to get the coverage shown in the swatch below. 2 coats is a touch transparent in spots but still results in a pretty color, so it is really up to you to decide on how opaque you want the look to be.
This color is a great neutral shade that is perfect for when you want a more understated and sophisticated look, and it also blends well with your nail bed color as your nails grow in, making it more forgivable if you go a long time in between manicures. When applied correctly, this polish has some serious staying power and does not chip.
You can also choose to apply nail art over it as I have done for this snowflake manicure. It really is such a pretty base color!
Removal of this polish is much like it is with other gel formulas. You simply soak your nails in acetone for 5-10 minutes and gently scrape the polish off your nails, repeating the process as necessary. You can also file the top coat off the surface prior to soaking to speed up the process, but it’s not entirely necessary when using a soak off top coat. You just need to be patient enough to wait for the polish to begin flaking off in the acetone so that you don’t damage your nails during the removal process.
