I found the kit really easy to use. I actually did this manicure while propped up on pillows in bed! The color I got is Raspberry Wine, a beautiful magenta reddish shimmer. It's a luminescent color and the gel topcoat incredibly shiny. The shine is what made me fall in love with this manicure. The gel polish truly is different than regular polish, the feel of it on my nails was seriously awesome. I did leave a bit more of a gap around my cuticles than with normal polish because you have to be careful not to get the gel on your skin, which could cause your polish to lift. This photo is of my nails the day after I did the manicure.
It was hard for me to keep this polish on for a "long" time only because it's hard for me to keep any polish on for more than two days. But in the name of science I tried my darn best. The photo below is after six days of wear. I was amazed at how shiny it stayed and for real my nails felt indestructible. Like I had armor on. It was easy to soak off, I just used acetone, cotton and wrapped them in tinfoil for a few minutes like I do with regular glitter manicures. Sensationail sells the special foil wraps but I haven't tried those.
I loved this DIY kit and will definitely use it again, most likely for vacations and for my toes. I was really impressed with the quality of the kit and can highly suggest it if you're looking try out at home gel nails. The kit and other Sensationail products can be found at Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and Target stores for around $60. The individual polishes are around $12. What do you think of the gel nails at home concept? Have you tried any kits like this? Would you? Have a great day dolls!
