WAH London - Immerge - Review

This summer WAH London brought us WAH Immerge; highly pigmented jelly polishes that use 'patented ombré transformation technology' to blend and merge, creating tie dye patterns and gradient effects inspired by the psychedelic '60's.

There are two kits available; The Lava Set that gives a tie dye and sort of lava lamp effect, and The Flame Set that gives a more subtle red gradient look. Today I'm showing you The Lava Set!


The Lava Set - White Base, Yellow Polish, Red Polish.





I expected it to be one of those things that looks easy to do in the tutorials but when you try it out yourself you end up with a completely different result. That's kind of true! My first attempt didn't go well at all; I think I was putting too much pink on top of the yellow. This meant I didn't get the tie dye effect but more of a messy ombré. On my second go I got the result you see in my pictures. It's better but still doesn't look as blended as it does in the pictures on the box. It does work because I've seen pictures of the manicures the WAH girls have done on people. Hopefully I'll get there with more practice. The few reviews I've read on the Boots website give 5 stars and say how easy it is. It is easy to do in terms of you don't need any extra tools, just your three polishes and a few twists of the brush, but I found the blending to make patterns trickier than I expected. 


Here's a little video on how I applied the polishes. I must admit that I've put too much pink on the nail here...





I found the tie dye effect a bit tricky, so I gave a gradient a go and found it so much easier. I think it's because there is more space to twist the brush around, making blending easier. I'm really pleased with it!






Again, here's a little video... 




Review
At a distance the tie dye effect looks amazing, up close it's a little messy! I think this is something you need a couple of goes of to perfect so I will be trying it again and will keep you updated on how I get on. The gradient effect is stunning and so much easier to do than the usual sponge method for creating gradients. The  pinky-red and yellow polishes are great - they are very pigmented and dry to give a high-gloss finish. The white base is a bit streaky but dries quickly.

In my opinion, it's expensive at £18. Call me cheap but I'd never usually pay that much for beauty products. Luckily I had saved up quite a few Boots points so bought it with them. WAH polishes are usually £9 each, so you're getting 3 for 2 in this set. Is it worth the price? For someone like me probably not; I have that many nail polishes and enjoy experimenting with different types of nail art that I'm not going to be using it often enough to get my money's worth. It is a fun effect and I do like it but I'll be waiting for the sales before I buy The Flame Set. As cool as the lava effect is, I think The Flame Set is much more wearable all year round.






You can read more about Immerge and find tutorials on the WAH London website.

  6. Sé que una captura de replicas relojes pantalla no se ve tan bien como una foto normal, pero jugar el video y mirar más de cerca todos los detalles para que pueda hacer su propia mente sobre la calidad de este reloj de
    replicas rolex. Me gusta porque es diferente y tiene una apariencia única, mientras que sigue siendo una parte de la réplica de la colección de relojes Daytona. Me gusta el dial azul en la caja de oro amarillo chapado y con una correa de cuero negro de imitación de cocodrilo. Es una combinación buena y única, más elegante
    replicas breitling o simplemente casual si lo desea.

    No se olvide que el Daytona sigue siendo un modelo deportivo, pero definitivamente es parte de los clásicos ahora y especialmente los correa de replicas omega cuero que añadir un tono más clásico a su aspecto general. Echa un vistazo al video y déjame saber tus pensamientos sobre él.
