iZ Beauty of London
iZ Beauty of London are a British nail brand, and they have released a range of gel effect nail lacquers which are supposed to reflect a high gel-like shine. Their polishes include a patented plasticiser, which is supposed to reduce the risk of chipping and provides a super high gloss finish. They also state that a topcoat is not needed either with this formula.
I was able to try out their polish in the shade Peekaboo which they describe as being a ‘creamy stand out peach’ and I have to agree. I’ll be completely honest and say that I wasn’t the biggest fan of this particular shade against my skin tone as I found it too vibrant for me personally – however iZ offer over 40 shades in their formulation so I’m sure there is something out there for everyone. Alongside the polish, Peekaboo I was also able to try out their topcoat ‘Get Glossed’. This gives (as it suggests) a very glossy finish to your nails and definitely adds to the gel like effect.
In terms of the formula, the polish does require at least two coats for full opacity, and I did prefer to use a topcoat with the polish as it added to the gloss of the polish but also the longevity. I found the polish to chip after on wearing it for two days without the topcoat and three days with the topcoat. The packaging is sleek, making it easy to travel with. I’d definitely recommend taking a look at their range.
Now if you love to have fun with your nail polish, iZ also offer designer nail decals called ‘Deco it’ as well as nail wraps, which are great nail stickers to amp up your nail art. Perfect for the festival season and summer.
iZ Beauty of London nail polishes are priced at £6.00.
