There is nothing better than having a salon standard manicure done by your own fair hands at home! Sensationail Deluxe Gel Starter Kit is just the thing to give you that perfect gel manicure at home. I was lucky enough to win this on Fleur de Force’s twitter just before Christmas and I was literally over the moon when it arrives so thank-you Fleur!
The Sensationail provides up to two weeks of dazzline, damage-proof colour to the nails which is great for me as i’m prone to chipping nails! I have been trying this out recently and I am in love so far. The kit comes equipped with:
Tools – Sensationail Pro 3060 LED Lamp, Lint-free wipes, Removal Too, Manicure Stick, Double Sides Nail Buffer
Products – Silver Glitter Puffer, Gold Glitter Puffer, Gel Cleanser, Gel Primer, Gel Base and Top Coat, Color Gel Polish in Pink Chiffon and Color Gel Polish in Raspberry Wine.
This is really easy to use and comes equipped with instructions to make it that little bit more easier. To get the perfect manicure with this kit you must start by filing and buffing the nail, then apply the gel cleanser to the nail. I then apply cuticle oil and push my cuticle back but these instructions don’t suggest you do that. Then gel primer is applied to the nail and once that has air-dried a base coat can be put on (the mixture is a tad on the thick side so I’d suggest putting a thin layer on) and set in the LED lamp for 30 seconds.
Once set you can then apply the color you wish, I’ve only tried the raspberry wine which I absolutely love! It’s the perfect deep red and it also has a slight sparkle within the colour which looks so pretty on the nails. After one coat they need setting for 60 seconds, I found that two coats were enough and then seel that with a top coat. I didn’t actually use the top coat from the set as I found it better as a base coat, as a top coat it was too thick and wouldn’t set the varnish underneath.
Overall I am really impressed with this starter kit and I cannot wait to grab a few more colours to add to my collection. Hopefully I’ll have some shelving units soon to home my ever growing polish collection.
Have you tried any gel starter kits? What’s your thoughts on them?
