Salon Quality Nails at Home

by Red Carpet Shopper on May 22, 2012

Since it has taken me 30 years to grow my nails out, I’m very picky about how I care for them as well as whom I let care for them. Last year I discover gel nails, some places may be calling it shellac and it was amazing. For those who may not know shellac overlay is a very thin gel-like polish that keeps your nails shiny for 2 weeks or more and also keeps your nails from splitting and breaking. Since discovering this at my local nail salon I was paying on average about $40 a month having my nails done. Since I’m always looking for a way to save a little but still have the things I want I was excited to see a product called SensatioNail.

SensatioNail is a gel polish that allows you to have the same salon quality manicure only from home. I found this product at my local CVS. There are two versions of this, the first one is the starter kit that includes the LED light you need to dry the polish and the second is just the gel polish kit for those who may already have an LED light (I already had one so I just bought the gel polish kit). The starter kit costs about $50, but has enough products to do your nails at least 12 times. The gel polish kit costs around $26 and has the same amount of product. Now, since I like the French manicure look I found these really cool pre-packaged white tips called French Wrap at my local Sally Beauty Supply. This is nothing more than a plastic tip with white polish placed on the inside in various sizes. All you have to do is find the right size, place some of the adhesive on the tip and stick to your nail, then the plastic part peels off leaving only the perfectly shaped white polish on your nail. After you have this done you can put the gel polish on and you have a salon quality manicure.

If your interested in trying this yourself you can get the SensatioNail by Nailene Gel Polish Starter Kit, Raspberry Wine, 1 kit for $59.99 on Amazon and Nail Bliss French Wrap – Professional Manicure Kit for $33.99 on Amazon.  (These links are affiliate links.  Please verify the price has not changed before you complete the checkout process).

The kit is actually $79.99 on Amazon. Seems it would be cheaper to get them done at a salon, if you follow this method
