I absolutely love getting gel manicures. It’s always nice to have your nails looking girly and pristine. It makes me feel that much more put together. What I don’t like is how much gel manicures cost. At $30 or more per manicure, I really can’t justify it. So, I mentioned to Adam around Christmas time that I thought it would be cool to have one of the at-home manicure kits. My sweet husband did some research and bought me the SensatioNail Kit, and boy am I in love with it. It is so easy to use and lasts just as long or longer than a gel manicure from a salon. Throughout my manicure, I scrubbed dishes, cleaned the house, typed, etc. The nail polish did not chip until about three weeks in (even then it was a very small chip), and the only reason I took the polish off was because I was ready for a new color.
The starter kit is about $40-50. Yes, this is more than a salon manicure, but you get multiple manicures from each polish. So, the SensatioNail Kit ends up being more cost effective.
The starter kit comes with a polish, gel base and top coat, double-sided nail buffer, lint-free wipes, manicure stick and an LED lamp. You can also buy individual colored polishes. The directions are clear and easy to follow. They give you each step and tell you how long to keep your hand under the lamp.
For anyone who loves to get gel manicures but hates to pay outrageous amounts, I highly recommend the SensatioNail Kit. I can’t say enough good things about it. I get so excited each time I paint my nails because they look just as shiny as when a professional does them. Evwn the shine lasts throughout the whole manicure. You can buy the kit and polishes at Walmart, Target, and other various places online. If you end up buying the kit, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
