NOTD: SensatioNail™ "Raspberry Wine"

My nail detox ended early due to the release the new SensatioNail™ Starter Kit with "Raspberry Wine"! I have had a thing for gel polish since I had my first set of Shellac nails! I didn't particularly like the colours in the starter sets - red creme and this berry (yes, berry, the photo is crap!) but at £85 this is worth it for the LED lamp alone. Even if you have little or none experience with gel nails, this is easy enough to do. Just follow the video demo on the SensatioNail™ website and you will be fine :) I'll try and take a better photo in daylight tomorrow.

Having worked with both gel polish and gel extensions, I found the procedure very straight-forward. There is an instruction book in the kit as well. I must confess I may have been a bit sloppy with the application in places though... My chosen colour is a berry shimmer.

I'm not going to go into details about the content, you can see them all in the photo and they are all explained in depth on the website. You get:
  • Pro 3060 LED lamp
  • Buffer
  • Lint-free wipes
  • Gel cleanser
  • Primer
  • Gel Base & Top Coat
  • Coloured gel polish

All the gels goes on smoothly, even though I wish the colour gel was a bit more pigmented? The lamp is super-easy to work as the button is preset to 30sec. I wouldn't use the nail file in the kit - it's not fine grade enough to buff the nails gently; I used the 1st stage on a professional buffer block and buff VERY LIGHTLY.

I have done some research online and I think I can use the lamp experimentally with other LED cure gel polishes so watch this space... I will try and wear this as long as possible, but as you know me, 2 whole weeks without a polish change will be tough :)

You can get the SensatioNail™ Starter Kit in Boots now for £85, it comes in "Scarlet Red" and "Raspberry Wine".

Were you able to use it with another brand gel polish??? I want to buy the OPI Gel Color (not axxium). I would LOVE to know before I return the light! Thanks!
