One of the perks of working close to a shopping area is... shopping... lol.
Well, I mean, because it's on my way, I get to drop in quite often and check in on some sales. Have you ever wondered what these insta gel strips are? Well, I have and I wondered how they work but refuse to pay full price... Now I know what's in it... ;-)
I went on a (seldom happening) awesome vacation last year and my, did I wish that I brought my Fingerpaints gel polish kit with me. I went around "somewhere awesome" with pitiful nails. Of course, I cared less while I was enjoying some great sites and rare adventures. But there is always the "I wish I took a nailie on that beautiful spot." Hubby says: "Hm, really?!? No, not really. I am exaggerating... lol. But it would have been nice...
I thought about bringing my Fingerpaints gel kit but gave way for more essential stuff in my carry-on. Practicing traveling with just a carry-on you see. Saves time going around the airport and less chances of losing a luggage. Anyway, that was my motivation for picking this sweetheart. The LED lamp is so tiny, it can only fit one finger at a time. But that size is actually perfect for traveling. It is also just a strip so really doesn't need a whole lot of ado... I think at least... I'll hold my tongue until I get to try it :-)
In the box there's the LED lamp with an AC adapter. I love that as batteries can get expensive overtime. And you surely don't want to run out of battery life while in the middle of a manicure, right? There's two packages of gel strips, the leftovers are meant to be disposed after. It also comes with a cuticle stick, nail file, buffer, a bottle of base/topcoat in one and the instructions. Each refill set will include all these except for the LED lamp.
And then I bought another Sensationail gel polish wrap since it's on sale... This set, plus a small bottle of acetone will do just fine on a nice boat cruise along the Mediterranean... what do you think? (ah, the wishful thinking.... wink) Now, all I need is some time to sit and test out how this set holds out... soon I hope :-)
Have you tried this set? How did you like it?
