Gel manicure at home with Sensational


When I have freshly manicured nails I instantly feel happier. Painting your nails takes time and effort (and money if your getting it done at a salon) so my heart brakes when I get a chip and it has only been a couple of days since I painted them.

Sensationail gel kit review


For that reason, I have gotten gel manicures in the past. I love how long they last and how nice they look, what I don’t like is the price I have to pay to get them done.
That’s why I was intrigued when gel nail kits appeared on the market.

Sensationail gel kit review


I decided to buy the Gel Starter Kit from Sensationail, specifically for the one that comes with the raspberry wine nails polish as burgundy nails are a must for me in autumn.
 This kit contains a gel cleanser, gel primer, gel colour, gel base & top coat, lint-free wipes, a double sided nail buffer, manicure sticks a LED lamp and as a bonus it also comes with nail shields.

Sensationail gel kit review


The LED lamp has improved form their previous version, it now cures the base and top coat in 15 seconds while curing the gel colour in 30 seconds. It also has an automatic sensor turning on when it detects that your fingers are inside, it gives you a 15 second warning and it turns off after 30 seconds. It also comes with a removable plate for pedicures.

The application is quite simple and the kit comes with a step by step instructions.
The hard part comes when you want to remove the nail polish as it isn’t as easy as removing normal nails polish.
In order to eliminate gel nail polish you need to submerge your nails in acetone for 15 minutes and then scrape the polish off. If you’re not careful you can really damage your nails.

After 3 weeks



Sensationail claims to last up to 2 weeks of damage proof wear. I started to see small chips after a week, straight after I had a bath and washed my hair. The chips weren’t extremely visible but I know they were there.

All in all, I am happy with the Sensationail Gel kit I have bought an extra nail polish and I´m considering buying their polish to gel transformer. The Gel transformer lets you turn any nail polish into a gel polish. Not sure how well that will work but I´ll keep you posted!

  1. I've never tried a gel manicure but I'd much rather do something like this than pay $50+ dollars for one!

  3. I love pretty looking nails too, I have seen this gel set in boots on offer wasn't sure how well it works or if I would be able to use it as a novice.
    But it sounds amazing. Plus I do agree with you salon visits do add up.

  4. Sounds quite good, shame it didn't last the full two weeks. I love the colour of the polish.

    1. Yeah, I wasn't very impressed by that. Yesterday I tried a different nails polish, lets see if this one lasts longer.

  6. This kit sounds amazing, I wish it lasted longer than a week and nails didn't chip easily but well, nail polish lasts two days on my nails which is terrible!!
