Aurora Gel Effect Nail Polishes Swatches & Review

Hi everyone! For today's post, I have some swatches and review from a new-to-me brand Aurora Gel Effect Nail Polishes. Aurora Cosmetics is a New York based Italian cosmetics company that offers a line of 5-free nail polishes. The gel effect polishes have an glossy finish that does not require a UV/LED light.

Aurora Gel Effect Nail Polishes includes 59 polishes that range from cremes, metallics and glitter toppers. It also includes Gel Effect base and top coat that is supposed to extends the life of your manicure for up to 2 weeks, like a regular gel lacquer.
As described on their site here's some Details
:
WHAT is GEL EFFECT?
Don’t you wish you had a nail polish which has all the pros of gel polish and regular polish? This is what the GEL EFFECT nail polish does.
Like the regular polish, it is easy and convenient to use and fast dry without UV lamp.
Like the Gel polish, it is shinny and durable with the persistence of up to 2 weeks.
Finally, like the regular polish, it can be removed easily with the nail remover.

WHY GEL EFFECT?
It’s simple. Because it is so convenient and easy to use while it delivers the salon-quality gel manicure without UV-lamp or any professional equipments.
One more thing - It costs much less.

HOW TO USE?
  1. Apply the base coat.
  2. After 30 second, apply the nail color.
  3. After 45 second, apply the second coat.
  4. After 1 min, apply Aurora GEL EFFECT top coat.
  5. AURORA GEL EFFECT top coat dries in 3~4 min in the air.
For the best result, AURORA GEL EFFECT top coat is a must.
Cream Tear- is beautiful milky off white creme. The formula on this polish was surprisingly good. Better than  expected as these colors tend to be super sheer and need a million coats. However, this was surprisingly opaque in three coats, sealed with Aurora's Gel Effect Top Coat.
For this look, I wanted to add some really cute gold sicker designs, I received from Born Pretty Store. I even filled in the spaces with Aurora's That Kind of Rich. For some extra shine and longevity I applied Aurora's Gel Effect Top Coat.
That Kind of Rich- is a gold shimmery polish. The formula on this polish was very good and applied smoothly onto the nails. The color on this polish was perfect and bonus as gel effect polish. This is two coats sealed with Aurora's Gel Effect Top Coat.
Since it's October, it is definitely time for those Breast Cancer Awareness manis. This awareness is very important to me, since most of my female family members were/are diagnosed with breast cancer. So for this look I wanted to create a floating ribbon, with some gradient pink.Then sealed with  Aurora's Gel Effect Top Coat.
Psychd  Fuchsia- is a gorgeous oxblood red creme. This polish is definitely a favorite of mine and the perfect color for the season. Application and formula was super smooth and amazing to apply. This is two coats sealed with Aurora's Gel Effect Top Coat.
For this look, I thought Psychd  Fuchsia and That Kind of Rich will be the perfect combo. So I decided to create a ruffian look and then accent it with Hex Nail Design bow charm.
Last Night Black- I was a bit confused with this shade. It looks black, a dark brown or a shade of dark purple. It depends on how you look at it. However, I wasn't surprise by the formula and application. It was smooth and applied perfectly in one coat, sealed with Aurora's Gel Effect Top Coat.
Party On The Nails- is a fun glitter topper with tons of blue, pink and purple large and micro glitters. The formula on this polish was slightly on the thick side, and would be perfect for those glitter gradients. The base was one coat and dabbed with a makeup sponge for coverage
sealed with Aurora's Gel Effect Top Coat.
Lanikai Sea- is a vibrant blue shade,truly reminds me of the sea and another favorite of mine! Application and formula was super smooth and amazing to apply. This is two coats sealed with Aurora's Gel Effect Top Coat.
Of-course I had to create an under the sea theme nails. I actually created this design I last year when I participated a guest blog post. I loved it so much, I thought why not update it. I used Lanikai Sea as the base and a glitter polish (that matched perfectly). I used some wave vinyls on the nails and added some seaweed and Daily Charme In The Sea water decals and fish charm
Overall I am very impressed with Aurora Gel Effect Nail Polishes polishes and colors. I absolutely loved these polishes! The formulas were all quite excellent and everything else went on wonderfully. It's definitely a plus when UV/LED light is not needed and they can last for the week. You can purchase their polishes and many more of their polishes here on their site.
