When I paint my nails on my own, I end up messing them up right away--I bump against something before they're completely dry, or manage to chip them in just a few hours.
It's a delimma.
Enter Sensationail, an at-home gel kit.
I admit, I was super skeptical at first. I first learned about Sensationail on a blog when a girl raved about the results. I read all sorts of reviews after that, and lots of people were satisfied with it, so I decided to give it a try.
The verdict? I'm sold.
The kit came with everything needed for ten manicures and was around $50. It only took about twenty minutes and was really easy to do. My favorite part? As soon as the polish cured under the light it was dry. Completely, totally, there's-no-way-you-can-scuff-this dry.
I've used the kit three times now, and can't complain much about it. The polish ususally lasts for about a week and a half or so without chipping...not quite the two weeks the box boasts, but much longer than regular polish. Removal has been pretty easy, too.
Considering salon prices, I consider that $50 well spent. :)
