I am the kind of person that can’t cope without polished nails, but with normal nail polish I found that they would usually chip by the next day. I started going to the salon to get my nails done with gel, which would last me about 2 weeks, but it cost around £25 a go! So basically if I wanted to have a year of pretty gel nails it would cost me around £650 (which obviously wasn’t an option).
I did some research and found the SensatioNail Polish to Gel Transformer, an at home gel nail polish kit that lets you transform your regular polishes into gel polishes. I was so impressed with the idea of this because I didn’t need to buy a whole new set of nail polishes, and it was only £50.
However, my response to this kit is mixed, because I have had some really good manicures that have lasted a week with no chips, and then others that have lasted around 2 days before one nail chipped. I also have had some trouble applying it, as I would apply the whole nail and seal it with gel, then go to wipe off the sticky residue and the whole polish would come off, but this happened rarely and I just re-did the nails.
I do still use this kit to do my nails, but it isn’t exactly reliable and takes some patience. For those who have more money to spend I would recommend getting a proper gel kit with gel polishes, but otherwise this works well enough and has a good price tag.
