    SENSATIONAIL - THUMPS UP!

    Excellent Product. I am a professional manicurist.

    1. Thorughly read and re-read instructions until you understand them before starting.

    2. Thoroughly clean natural nails.

    2. USE THIN COATS!!!

    3. Removing product is diffuclt, but use industrial acetone from hardware or boat store, this works better.

    4. Never peel nails. To remove, soak for 15 minutes in acetone, then use nail drill or 100 grit emery to remove product, very gently. This kit comes with everything you need, but I recommend buying addition 100 grit emery board.

    5. Beautiful, glassy finish.

    HINT: You can use your own good-quality enamel,it will cure the same way, and use your judgment because you might need 3 coats of polish, depending on color/consistency.

    REMEMBER: THIN COATS!!!

    Though I am not practiced with gel, this did not apply as expected, lamp was not comfortable to use or fast- drying. Though I received a compliment on my mani, outline flaws distorted appearance. It seems you need a separate kit for appropriate removal. Concluded after one week that this product is not for me. Liked the nail color enough to match it in another brand.

      This product has saved me so much money over going to the salon. As long as you follow the instructions it works perfectly. I have been using it for 6 months and love it. Once you have done your nails a couple of times you won't need to follow the instructions and it goes a little faster. Takes about 45 minutes but sooooooo worth it.

        Comments about Sensationail Gel Polish Starter Kit, Raspberry Wine, 1 kit:

        If you already get gel manicure at salons, this is exactly the same quality. My nails stay shiny and chip free for 2 weeks. I feel safer doing it myself since most salons like to make you leave your hands under the UV lamps longer than guidelines from manufacturers. It took me 30 mins to apply polish, completely dry and ready to go. I recommend doing manicure after shower to avoid newly cured polish from getting too much water. Even though this is LED lamp, it still emits UV ray so I use sunscreen lotion and white gloves with cutoff tips.

        Removing polish off takes much longer. Wrapping fingers with acetone and foil for 10 mins did not work for me, more like 30 mins for each hand. If you have someone to help you then you should do soak both hands at the same time.

            I researched quite a bit and was skeptical I could get the same thing that I had in a salon...I was wrong.
            This kit is exactly like what you get in a salon that instantly dries onces it sets with the uv lamp and it lasts just as long too. I cleaned house and was very rough on my nails. Two weeks later, I only have one tiny nick on my thumbnail. I followed the instructions exactly and the first time out, it worked perfectly. Once it's set under the uv lamp, it's perfectly dry and you can do what you want instead of waiting an hour for it to dry completely. Can't recommend enough!!!

            My husband bought me this kit for Christmas. I love getting gels nails at the salon but it's time consuming and expensive. Having the do-it-yourself kit at home is a perfect solution for me! My nails look great and are so much stronger. The instructions are easy and they turned out great. My only complaint is the starter kit bottles are so small. I ordered the french manicure kit at the same time and love it!!

                I was completely impressed with this kit. It pays for itself in no time by saving you money at the salon. It does take a little longer to apply than just painting your nails but lasts so much longer. Regular nail polish starts chipping the next day on me so I started getting gel mani's at the salon. I loved that I could keep my nails looking good for about 2 weeks but it started getting expensive! I was happy to see this on sale and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did! It came very close to salon quality. When applying each coat make sure you apply them very thin. If not, the polish will pool near you cuticles and make a ridge. I'm a picker so I would pick at the ridge and ruin the mani. I learned my lesson the first time and the next time it was perfect. I've also used this kit with other brands of gel polish and it worked just as well. I like that you can get the SensatioNail colors at local stores if you need a color immediately. I do wish there was a bigger selection of colors but it is relatively new. Great product overall.

                  Been wanting to try home gel polish but the start up expense seemed a bit much just to try but with the kit on sale and then extra 20% off promtion it was a perfect deal. The 7W led lamp is worth the cost I paid for the whole kit.

                  Directions were easy and process was quick. The worse problem I had was sealing the ends without making a mess as my nails are rather short. Use the orange stick included to clean off any spots on skin before curing.

                  My nails look great can't wait to see how long they last.

                    I had acrylic nails put on for my son's wedding. The man ground down on my nails so much (even when I was wincing in pain).... that for a week I was in pain!! I finally soaked them off and they were disgusting to look at. For now I am using a basecoat and topcoat. It hides the uglyness, while I let them grow out. I can't wait to have my nails looking healthy again and this is going to take me through the holidays. I will continue to use it and NEVER allow anyone to "grind" my nails again!

                    This gel polish starter kit is a great value! The LED lamp alone would cost more than this entire kit. Gel manicures are the best new thing going. They result in super shiny professional-looking manicures that last and last. The only negative with this kit are the sample size polishes. The gel base & top coat and color gel polish were only .125 oz each. I don't know how they expect anyone to get 20 manicures out of such small bottles.

                    Sensationail Gel Polish Starter Kit, Raspberry Wine

                     – You may not realize it, but people are looking at your nails. After your eyes, your hands are one of the most common places that people tend to glance at when they are talking with you and when they meet you for the first time. To make the best possible impression, you want your nails to be flawless, but all too often, even professional manicures chip and peel and leave the hands looking less than their best.

                    Sensationail Gel Polish Starter Kit is the solution to this all-too-common problem. Developed to safely allow women to recreate gorgeous gel manicures at home, this system makes it possible to get professional-looking results without having to schedule an appointment at the salon. In just three easy steps, your nails will be colored a lovely Raspberry Wine hue, and the results can last up to 2 weeks without a single chip.

                    The secret to the longevity of Sensationail is the LED lamp included with the set. The gel polishes that come in the kit are formulated to react to the light and dry instantly. This means you'll never have to worry about ruining your manicure by using your hands while the polish is still tacky, and the gel-based polish is extra strong to resist chipping and flaking. Because the system uses an LED lamp, there is no worry about the effects of UV exposure, making the kit a safe alternative to many in-salon gel nail systems.

                    In the Sensationail Gel Polish Starter Kit, you get a range of products and tools to ensure great results with every manicure. You'll receive a gel cleanser, gel primer, base and top coat formula and colored enamel for every step of your manicure and for maintenance. Also included in the kit are lint-free wipes, a double-sided nail buffer and a manicure stick for pushing back your cuticles and shaping your nails. The kit comes with easy-to-follow instructions, so that you can begin treating yourself to beautiful gel manicures as quickly as possible.

                    With the Sensationail Gel Polish Starter Kit, you can finally have flawless nails that always look freshly manicured. People will wonder where you get your manicures, and they might not even believe that you did them yourself at home. The kit gives you everything you need to start saving time and money by giving yourself picture perfect, long lasting gel manicures that are guaranteed to get noticed.
