Sensationail Deluxe Gel Starter Kit - Review

Hello everyone! This blog post has been a long time coming! As always I really like to make sure that I trial and test products before I post a review on them. But here we finally have it! I bought the deluxe set on half price offer, which I have to admit was the mega temptation that broke my resistance, however the usual sets cost around £69.99.

Sensationail Deluxe Gel Starter Kit

 I bought this at the beginning of December. I was umming and ahhing about it for a while. The reason being is that I rarely wear polish during the working week because it would always chip. I always have very little time too so it would fall to the wayside. However of course, as I am sure you nail fanatics will know, Sensationail claims to offer two whole weeks of chip free nail polish. So eventually I took the chance and ordered myself an early Christmas present... oops!

Sensationail Pro 3060 LED Lamp

So here is the main bit of kit. The Sensationail Pro 3060 LED lamp which is the perfect size for doing your fingernails and your toenails. The lamp itself plugs in to the wall and has a light that when switched on remains on for 60 seconds for curing. It also beeps at the 30 second mark to let you know!

Sensationail Nail Polishes
With this particular set came two polish colours, raspberry wine and pink chiffon, as well as your gel base and top coat. 

Sensationail Gel Primer

You also get a bottle of the gel primer....

Sensationail Gel Cleanser

... as well as the gel cleanser. Luckily you can pick up replacements of all the necessities to complete your manicure rather than buying a whole new complete set.

Sensationail Glitter

With this being the deluxe set I also received two glitter applicators which to be honest I haven't really used much of however it's nice to have it included.

Sensationail Tools

You also get the lint free wipes and usual nail bits and bobs too. I won't go too much in to detail with how to perform the manicure as it comes with pretty in detail instructions with the system... I'll just write a pretty brief summary for you...however I will say it is pretty simple and I must say very quick.

Prep
File and buff your nails. Push back any existing cuticles.

Application
1) Remove any nail polish from your nails and wipe your nails with the gel cleanser.
2) Apply the gel primer to the nail. Allow this to air dry (which takes around 30 seconds).
3) Apply your gel base coat. Cure in the LED lamp for 30 seconds.
4) Apply your gel colour. Cure for 60 seconds.
5) Apply your gel top coat.
6) Wipe your nails with the lint free towels and the gel cleanser.

And your done!

Removal
Soak your hands in acetone and wipe your nail polish off. You can also invest in the Sensationail removal kit.


Below are a few looks I have created with the kit before I give you my final verdict!

These are just a few photos of the nail looks I have created with this kit. Some are with Sensationail polishes and some are with some normal nail polishes from my collection with a gel top coat. This is one of the reasons that I love this kit... it;s so versatile! I also love it because it does last the full two weeks! With some of these looks I ended up switching up my look because I was bored of my polish. That never happens! Usually it has chipped off long before I decide to change the colour! The shine is also absolutely gorgeous from these nails.

Overall if you have the money and you are nail obsessed then this kit is totally worth the invest or worth going on your Christmas/birthday wish list!

  2. Lovely post! I received the same sensationail kit for christmas from my parents and LOVE it also. I haven't done my nails any other way since.

    That is such a great tip about using normal polishes and then using a gel topcoat. I am going to try that out next time!

  3. This looks like a lovely little kit, I bought myself a UV lamp & a CND Shellac starter kit from eBay but I wish I'd have seen this instead. I love the idea that you can use it alongside a standard nail polish :)
