Primark Gel Effect Grey & Annual Roundup

Monday, 12 December 2016

The other day while browsing Primark for some last minute Christmas bits (I managed to grab a snowman jumper, some festive PJ's and a HO HO HO headband) I saw that they had this grey Gel Effect polish for sale.

Back in the Summer I ignored this colour thinking it wasn't very pretty, but for months now I've been wishing I had picked it up. After all I'm a collector and Primark colours are a cheap but high quality polish that are great to use in nail art and as bases, and the thought of not having a complete Gel Effect collection made me feel a little uneasy.

Imagine how excited I was to spot it for sale, I honestly thought I had missed my chance with this one. I didn't even mind spending ages in the queue.

This colour had no name but it's a gorgeous pale grey with warm tones. I was so impressed with the formula, it was good in 2 coats, however if you have little nails, you'd prob only need 1 coat. I added one coat of topcoat for the swatches below.

Now this Grey was released back in the Summer with 3 other colours (see my review here) and I love this quad of Gel colours. They're so bright and happy.

In Autumn Primark released 4 newer Gel Effect colours (see my review here). These are much darker and a lot more suited to the A/W.

So what are your thoughts on these Gel Effect polishes? Which are your favourites? See an collage of the 2016 Gel Effect colours below.

You can probably buy most of these from Primark stores nationwide priced at £1.50 each and I highly recommend you do, the only negatives is the smell and cheap brush, but at such a low price point, you can't expect perfection.

  1. Lovely colour, but then I love a grey...

    1. Me too. It's such an understated shade as well x

  2. I adore that grey, it's beautiful. I love all of the A/W ones too. I haven't tried any of the gel effect ones but definitely want to.

    1. You should def try some, they're so good and although the smell is a little bad, the formula is good. I love all the shades, I just wish there were more xx
