We recently received this SensatioNail Gel Starter Kit in the shade Raspberry Wine and thought we would do a blog post on how to apply it and to let you know our thoughts on the gel kit.
The Gel Starter Kit contains:
- A LED Lamp
- Gel Cleanser
- Gel Primer
- Colour Gel Polish
- Gel Base and Top Coat
- Lint-free wipes
- Double-sided nail buffer
- Manicure stick
and claims to last 2 weeks of dazzling, damage- proof wear.
Now to the application of the Gel Starter kit. I thought i would treat my mum and give her a manicure as I'm unable to wear nail polish due to work but super excited to apply this in a couple of weeks. So heres my mum as my lovely hand model!
Firstly, you need to prepare your nails. The kit includes a double sided nail buffer which is used to file your nails with the grey side then to lightly buff of the natural shine with the pink side. Taking a lint free wipe and gel cleaner i then cleaned her nails.
I then applied the Gel primer to my mum in circle motions just on the outside of the nail. This is suggested for easier removal of the polish and let it air dry for 30 seconds.
Next comes the Gel Top & Base Coat. I applied a thin layer to each nail- not touching the cuticle or skin around the nail along with capping the nail. This then needs to be cured or hardened in the LED lamp for 30 seconds.
Next comes the Colour Gel Polish. Using the colour Raspberry Wine i shook the bottle then applied thin layers to each of my nails making sure to cap the nails. Then curing them for 60 seconds.
I then applied a second coat to my mums nails. Curing them for another 60 seconds.
Taking the Gel Top & Base Coat again i painted a thin layer of this over the nail polish capping each nail, then curing for 30 seconds.
Lastly, i took another lint free wipe and Gel Cleanser to clean the top of the nails.
And VOILA! they are finished! This colour is such a beautiful shade!
Once its all applied to the nails, your nails are super smooth and shiny. So far they have lasted 5 days without chipping or anything and are still looking perfect!
SensatioNail also make a Gel Polish Removal Kit for easy removal of the Gel Polish. Ill keep you updated about the removal when i take of the gel polish!
