Sensationail Kit - Any Good?

As title really.

I have shellac as and when but can't afford it every couple of weeks or so although I do kind of enjoy the salon experience but I could have something else done.

I'd like to do my toes too.

Are they any good? I'm quite good at doing my nails but due to the medication I'm on I can't wear normal polish as they flake and it lasts a couple of hours usually.

I have it. I think it is quite good. Easy to follow the instructions, takes me about 20 mins to do them now.

The lamp is small so you have to do both thumbs, then fingers one hand then fingers the other hand. Also I find it only lasts about a week before it starts chipping which is the main downfall as shellac normally lasts longer on me. But having said that you can do a quick repair job with the lamp to make it last a bit longer.

I think you can use other brand colours as well but I haven't quite worked that out yet.

Have had mine over 2 years now and love it. Definitely saved money on salon visits and it's loads more convenient too.

Their fb page always has lots of tips on and if you have a problem their customer service is brilliant. I had a bottle with a bent brush and they sent me out a new brush and a free polish that arrived the next day!

Look at Instagram for the polish colours so you can see how they look in real life

I've had the set since December (Boots often so deals on the starter kit - I got mine with two colours for £45).

I have bought other types of gel polish from ebay but find the Sensationail gel lasts longest.

Can't recommend it highly enough.

Boots have the deal on again! Reduced from 110 to 50 grin
Colours are on 3for2 and they have triple points too at the moment
Am sure there were some codes knocking about too for money off spend over a certain amount
