We at SmartPolish are lucky enough to have met some inspirational people in this business, here is one of them.
Lucy says 'SmartPolish is a gel polish that requires no base or top coat. It cuts my time in half and is truly brilliant. And the colours are great!'.

She's been nail obsessed since she was a young girl and is in the eviable position of having carved a successful career out of that obsession. We had a chat with Lucy about all things nails...

Lastly, we know you use SmartPolish. Tell us the results you've had and how you've found the product to be? Does it save you time?
'I'm a massive fan, it's the quickest gel polish I've ever used. I love the colours, It's fantastic for when I'm on set & the celeb wants gel polish applied. I use it more for toes as it can be done in under 5 minutes! The black is my all time favourite, it's rare to find a black gel that's goes on non streaky.'
