As a busy mum of 3 pre-school children, it can be quite difficult squeezing in beauty appointments when juggling nursery runs, work, and other extra-curricular activities. So I was very interested to receive this gel nail starter kit from SensatioNail, so I could do my own Gelish nails at my leisure.
Each kit contains everything you need, gel cleanser, primer, base/top coat, gel polish and a Pro 3060 LED Lamp. I also received the Gel Polish Remover (not part of the of the starter kit).
I set about giving my nails a quick file, and followed the easy instructions included with the kit. The polish went on easily, and dried quickly under the LED lamp. There is something about Gelish polish that you just don’t believe it can be dry that quick, but sure enough when I checked, it was totally dry and not sticky in any way. I put on the layers as instructed, finishing with a sparkly top coat. OK, it wasn’t as perfect as having them done in a salon, but practice makes perfect, and my nails were lovely and sparkly within half an hour.
The hard wearing gel stood up to my rigorous daily routine, only after about 10 days did it start peeling slightly at the edges. This is about the same length of time I get when I have them done professionally, so I was quite impressed they had lasted that long
The SensatioNail Gel Starter Kit is available to buy from the SensatioNail website or from Boots. I will certainly be buying a few more polishes to add to my collection. It is definitely worth the extra effort rather than using normal nail polish which can be prone to chipping even the same day. The nail kit would also soon pay for itself in savings from trips to beauticians
I would give this product a huge sparkly thumbs up, and 5/5 value for money.
RRP: Starter kit from £69.99, Remover £6 and extras colours from £12.50.
Available to buy from SensatioNail here.
