ICYMI this is the spring collection for 2018 for Gelish, released about a week ago. The colors are really pretty, and I’m amped about them all, as usual. I think the green Ruffle Those Feathers and purple All the Queen’s Bling are going to be really popular with clients. Actually, Ruffle Those Feathers is the first color I used on myself!
(Please ignore the bubbling on the blue My Other Wig is a Tiara swatch… that was my fault. This is what happens when you apply layers of gel polish that are too thick!)
For spring 2018, Gelish has introduced the Royal Temptations collection. “Inspired by the lavish life of Marie Antoinette, the collection includes six delicious shades. Opulent pastels of sea foam green, teal, purple, pink and coral help to convey the romantic fantasy we associate with being a queen. For an even sweeter nail look, add on Over-the-Top Pop, a special effect glitter that you can’t help but adore.”
The collection is called Royal Temptations, and the color names call to mind famous royal figures in 18th century France: “Beauty Marks the Spot” reminds us that in the 18th century royal court, beauty marks were all the rage to the point that false ones were applied to certain places on one’s face, depending on the message you wanted to convey to the beholder… remember Madame Du Barry, King Louis XV’s infamous mistress? And what queen’s wig could be more famous than Marie Antoinette’s, who loved all things fashionable and sumptuous? Yep, Gelish nailed it with the names for these polishes!
I think clients are going to love these. The seafoam green/blue color seems to have been really popular the last couple years, and shows no signs of fading popularity, so Ruffle Those Feathers will probably be a hit. The traditionalists will love Curls & Pearls and Beauty Marks the Spot. And, if you’re like me you’re always looking for a pretty lilac (light purples seem to be a rarity for Gelish thus far)… and All the Queen’s Bling seems like it will fit the bill!

For Winter 2017 Gelish has introduced the Thrill of the Chill collection, with four dark plus one light wintry colors, and a glitter topper. I’ve purchased the entire collection, and swatched them for you!
They are, according to Nails Magazine, “Angling for a Kiss, a deep red cream; Let’s Kiss and Warm Up, a plum cream; Don’t Let the Frost Bite, a grape cream; Caviar On Ice, a taupe cream; My Main Freeze, a pale nude cream; and Ice Cold Gold”, the special effect shade.
No, really. Are you ready? ‘Cause apparently it’s happening!
I’m not looking forward to winter, but I am looking forward to Gelish’s Winter 2017 collection, called the Thrill of the Chill.
We don’t have any official info from Gelish yet, but I have seen the collection for sale on a couple sites. The colors are:
Angling for a Kiss – dark red creme
Ice Cold Gold – sparkly gold glitter topper
Caviar on Ice – chocolate brown creme
Let’s Kiss and Warm Up – deep wine creme
My Main Freeze – pastel pink creme
Don’t Let the Frost Bite! – very deep purple creme
I’ve noticed that there haven’t been any polishes labeled “Trends” lately, though one from each of the last couple collections seemed to have qualified. Is the “Trends” line kaput? If you’ve heard, please leave a comment below!
I realize I say this every time, but from what I am seeing so far, I am loving these colors. What do you think? Will you buy them now, or wait until the holiday rush is over?
My September 2017 Nails Magazine arrived in the mail this week, and inside it is the NailStyle insert for Fall 2017… which has a sneak peek of the Little Miss Nutcracker Holiday 2017 Collection from Gelish! I was so excited to see color dots for these new shades, even though it’s still August and 80+ degrees at the Smoke and Mirrors Headquarters.
If you’re getting amped about the holidays, check out the new colors coming our way from Gelish:
You Crack Me Up – eye-catching green
Baby, It’s Cold Outside – deep, midnight navy blue
Plumthing Magical – royal purple
Don’t Toy with My Heart – bold, shimmery garnet red
Just Tutu Much – shimmery blonde gold
Dreaming of Gleaming – glistening silver metallic
Silver in my Stocking – silver special effect glitter, a part of the Trends lineup
They all look beautiful but I am loving that green color! I can’t wait to get my hands on these. What about you? Which ones do you like?
