Review of Clavuz Neon Bling 12 Color Gel Polish Set

Shopping for gel polish online can be scary business. Not every brand is trustworthy, and things get especially questionable when the price seems too good to be true. However, I had such good results with a gel base and top coat set from Clavuz┬áthat I didn’t hesitate to try out this 12 color gel polish box set from the same company.

The “neon bling” 12 color gel polish set from Clavuz comes packaged in a box ready to be wrapped for gift giving.

The outside packaging really doesn’t entice the buyer into purchasing the set. They don’t specify which colors are included, nor do they have pictures of the polishes included, but they do list all the boring stuff.

The instructions are printed on the back of the box along with low resolution images of random fingers painted with colors that you don’t get in this set.

One side lists the ingredients and warnings while the other side displays generic graphic outlines of 12 bottles of polish, not scaled to size.

The contents of the box are more exciting. The bottles, which are an 8 mL size and therefore a little small, are held in place in a plastic tray, and more detailed instructions along with a swatching wheel are included.

Love Script Manicure

As I mentioned before, I recently traveled to attend my grandmother’s funeral. For days, I struggled to think of how to paint my nails. It wasn’t so much about coming up with something funeral appropriate as it was about creating something that might honor her. As she loved beautiful things and being flashy, I came up with this holographic love manicure to wear to pay my last respects.

I started by painting my nails with color 3709 from an amazing gel polish set from Clavuz. This shade is stunning in so many ways, but it is basically a mauve rose toned jelly polish with dazzling holographic glitter. As with any holo, pictures rarely do it justice.

2 coats of 3709 from Clavuz were applied for this swatch.
