At home gel-polish kits have been getting a lot of buzz lately. They have the convenience of being at home and don’t come with the salon pricetag. Sally Hansen introduced their Salon Gel Polish starter kit. One box gives you everything you could possibly need (& then some!). Sally Hansen gel polish manicures promise to last up to 10 days with no chips plus easy removal.

The started kit includes:

  • 1 LED lamp (small enough that you could throw in a bigger purse & bring to a friends house)
  • 1 Gel Base Coat
  • 1 Gel Nail Colour
  • 1 Gel Top Coat
  • 10 Nail Cleanser Pads
  • Acetone Remover
  • Cuticle Stick
  • File & Buffer

We are not going to lie, we were a little intimidated when we saw all the goods. We opened a bottle of wine, picked our favourite shades & got started. The process is the same as a regular application – base coat, 2 coats polish & top coat. Each step needs to be cured using the LED lamp – this takes about 30 secs. A LOT easier than we had anticipated. It took us under an hour & we were all gel-ed up!

We might have mentioned before, but we type ALL day at work & this polish really did hold up against all those words per minute! We were so surprised! We found the nails we cured a little longer (about 1minute vs. recommend 30 secs) had more staying power. We recommend 1min per nail if you have the time – just to ensure you make it all the way to the 10 days.

Sally Hansen gel polish at-home kit is a great money saver for those that love the look & stay power of gel nails, but don’t want to pay salon prices or venturing out into the city. Our nails had the mirror shin promised & there were so many colours to chose from – there’s a shade for everyone. J is headed for a 2 week vacation (so jealous!) & loved the application so much she’s rocking Sally Hansen gel polish while she’s away. The stay power + ease is perfect & travelling with nail polish is sometimes a nighmare!
