DIVA DISH: If the slipper fits…

DIVA DISH: If the slipper fits…

Cinderelly, Cinderelly, night and day it’s Cinderelly…

Who doesn’t love a Disney princess? Even better, modern-day interpretations of Disney princesses.

So when I was presented the opportunity to review the new Gelish mini Cinderella 2015 collection, I pounced.

Six limited-edition brand-spankin’ new shades, along with three limited-edition glitter toppers… ummmm, yes please. The names of these polishes too made me smile as I pulled each out of its package. The collection, inspired by the soon-to-debut live-action Walt Disney’s Cinderalla (movie opening in theaters March 13, 2015), consists of:

  • Party at the Palace
  • My Carriage Awaits
  • Watch Your Step, SIster!
  • If the Slipper Fits
  • Ella of a Girl
  • Live Like There’s No Midnight
  • Stepsisters Rule (topper)
  • A Magic Moment (topper)
  • I’ll Make It Fit (topper)

I paired Party At the Palace (as a base coat) and If The Slipper Fits (as a top coat) for a gorgeous sparkly turquoise blue worthy of… a one-of-a-kind ballgown that only exists til midnight.

You know the kind.

And as with all Gelish gel laquer, it applies like regular polish, dries instantly in a LED lamp in 30 seconds (or in a traditional UV lamp in 2 minutes), stays in great condition for weeks, and soaks off in only 10 – 15 minutes. Now if you have an oily nail bed, or use a lot of hand creams and lotions, I’ve found that after soaking in a hot bath after the gel has been on for over a week, it can effortlessly lift off as a whole from each finger. No time and no money for removal. Kind of genius.

Loves it!

The Gelish Cinderella 2015 Collection is available at select salons now or, for the DIY divas, shades can be purchased at Sally Beauty for $13.99 per bottle.

What else can I add? Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.
