Gelish - Last Call Nail Art + Review

Hey everyone! It's Friday, I definitely have that Friday feeling because I'm going away for a long weekend to Edinburgh tomorrow morning with my boyfriend. It's my birthday present, although it's long since been my birthday (it's in January) because we had to postpone, but I'm really excited. I'm going to be doing a 'nails on holiday' post again (check out my previous posts here and here) because I really love doing them and they're fun to look back on. 

Anyway, today's post is one that I've been gathering photos for a few weeks for because I truly wanted to show how gorgeous this polish is. I've wanted to get my hands on a rose gold polish for ages and when I noticed that the recent Gelish - After Hours collection contained one with Last Call*, I couldn't help but want/need it. After Gelish kindly sent it to me, I've used it a considerable amount, mainly on my friends because everyone wants this shade, but also on myself. My friends didn't even want nail art (how boring) because it's perfect by itself. 

I must admit, I was worried I'd be disappointed when it got here and it wouldn't be like the pictures,and it would be rose gold enough (does that make sense?). But it's the perfect rose gold, and because it's a gel it lasts forever (or thereabouts) so you can stare at it endlessly. I've created some nail art with it, which was completely influenced by Nancy Loves Nails. I've also done some nail art on my friend, and a review of the polish itself. Read on after the jump for the full post. 



For the nail art I used Barry M - Cotton for the white (I don't own a white gel unfortunately but it's right at the top of my list because gel and polish really don't work well together!), and Gelish - Last Call* for the rose gold. I just used the brushes from the bottle for the design, and then I finished with a coat of Gelish - Top It Off.

Above and below is two coats of Gelish - Last Call* by itself, it's quite thick so you really don't need much to reach opacity, and the high quality of Gelish means you'll be left with gorgeous shiny nails for weeks.

  1. Ahh! What a gorgeous rose gold, I agree it's the perfect tone and has the perfect sparkly metallic finish. I really adore that geometric nail art, especially with white which is just so striking! You definitely need to get yourself a white gel haha! So perfect for nail art!

  2. What a stunning rose gold gel! I actually ordered one from Madam Glam and right now I am very curious how it's going to compare to this beauty. I really hope it's rose goldy enough, like you said :) Beautiful nail art, as always! It looks very neat and clean paired with the white.

  4. That is such a beautiful rose gold! I have yet to add any shade of this type to my collection *sadface* so I really should get onto that! The manicures you've done are gorgeous!
