Aliexpress 3d carving gel review and demo

Hey polish fiends...

Welcome back to my blog. Today I'm sharing a great lil find I bought from aliexpress. I was looking for a cheap 3d gel to practice with because let's be real before embarrassing myself on video I wanted a rough idea of what direction I was doing.  The honest shock I got when I realised not only were these gel pastes bright, easy to work with but they actually stayed true to colour once cured. I tried various designs and tools to find a technique that worked best for me. I found I preferred a silicone tool for smoothing the sides of the gel, a metal cuticle pusher to pick up the pea sized amounts and surprisingly my fingers it was so easier to soften the paste with the heat from my fingers.

I got these gels for £1.41 each. They come in 12 shades from brights to dark purples, reds and green. The only thing required for these is some alcohol and a dotting tool with a needle point tip.

Overall I'm so happy with how they performed. I only bought 7 but have since ordered the rest. I've tried them on gel, regular polish, chromes. I've also painted on them. They dry in 30 seconds in an led or just a bit over a minute in a uv lamp. They kept their shape once I added topcoat. Crystals adhere well to they while wet and dry to a rock hard finish, they won't budge.
The only fault is delivery time, as with most China post they take around a month and a half to arrive. I'm impatient so for me it's a royal pain waiting but the product definitely makes up for it. This is without a doubt worth the money guys. I'd highly recommend.

I really hope you enjoyed today's post. I can't thank you enough for stopping by.  See you next time.

Love khylie xx
