What it promises: A manicure that will last 2-3 weeks without chipping, dulling or breaking, which is natural in appearance and will not damage the natural nail.
I arrived at the award-winning K Spa within the West London K West Hotel and was quickly greeted by my therapist, who led me through to the nail room. I was asked to choose my nail colour – a tough choice as LCN have an impressive selection of hues, but I finally settled on a hot red. The treatment began with the removal of all my existing polish, before my nails were filed and buffed. Next, the therapist degreased my nails with LCN nail prep cleaner and applied a recolution bond to each natural nail. Once my nails where prepped, I put them into a UV light unit for two minutes. After taking my fingers out of the machine, the first thin layer of the recolution UV polish was applied, before popping my fingers back into the machine for a further two minutes. The process was repeated with a second layer of polish and another two minutes. Finally, a layer of sealer was applied to all of my nails, followed by a quick wipe down with a super finish cleaner to buff and shine my perfect new talons.
My nails look absolutely perfect and are really shiny! They are also completely dry, so I didn’t have to worry about any nasty smudges on the way home. I found the LCN Gel nails really flexible and durable. They lasted three weeks and survived all my daily activities.
