Last week I received a very exciting package in the mail – The Sensationail Starter Kit! I’ve been seriously eying this up recently after they started selling the polishes in Tesco and was on the verge of purchase when they contacted me and asked if I’d like to review the system. Yes I am bragging, that NEVER happens, haha (sorry). So anyway.. Although it was free I already know I am going to spend an absolute fortune on extending my collection of gel polishes, I spent a good 3 hours browsing the web for different brands and the cheapest places to buy today and am pretty excited about getting some Christmas glitters.. yay!
So far I’ve done my fingers and toes, My Mums nails and Ella’s toes and all have lasted over a week so far and were super easy and quick to do. I wanted to get in a good practice few before I filmed a video with the system and more importantly before my best friends wedding (this Friday) as I will be doing the bridesmaids nails for that. So far I have nothing but good things to report, My next test will be to see whether I can sandwich regular nail polish between the gel base/top coat. I have heard mixed reports on whether this works and believe it’s all about leaving them to dry 100% which is difficult to judge but I really want to try it as my polish collection is way to big to cast aside for the next big nail craze.
Anywho, I just wanted to let you know I’ve been trying this out and so far love it and also ask you guys if you use gels what your favourite brands are and where you buy your stuff from. The Sensationail polishes I’ve tried could probably get away with one coat which is great and I’d be happy to buy those full price if it was a little special but for the basic shades I’m looking for a cheaper alternative.
