I honestly thought I was going to love this system, I am a big fan of the original Sensationail kit so a more compact, travel friendly version seemed like a great idea. The lamp is a one finger at a time deal so it’s 30 seconds per finger – sounds time consuming until you discover that the new Fuse gel-namel is a one coat formula – no top/base coat needed! Say whaaaa?
SOUNDS great but in reality it’s much thicker than the regular Sensationail polishes so harder to work with, the brush was an awful shape (fan!! who makes a fan shapes nail polish brush??) so the application was messy and worst of all there was zero shine to the finish. I have no idea how long it lasts because I only did one hand, I couldn’t face a week of this dodgy manicure but even if it lasted that long I wouldn’t be impressed. The little areas I’d missed with the brush I went back in to try to ‘get right’ but the polish layered up to give a less than smooth effect.
The lamp itself is a great idea and very unique, it’s powered by a USB (come with a plug adapter too) so you can plug it in to your laptop or even an external battery (I’m thinking the phone charger I keep in my bag) so it’s ideal for travel or touch ups on the go
Unfortunately that’s where the positives end with this kit. If any of you have tried this and really love it I’d be interested to hear from you because it could well be a bad bottle of polish that’s (pardon the pun) taken the shine off this for me but I can’t recommend it I’m afraid.
