Nail products I'm interested in...Sensationail Starter Kit, Nails Inc The Medal Collection and Loreal Textured Nail Wraps

I don't think it's any secret that nails hold a special place in my heart (and my blog!), I absolutely love them to the point where it's probably a bit weird.  But anyway, here's the nail related stuff tickling my fancy at the moment:

Sensationail Starter Kit
Have you seen these in Boots?  They're kits for you to do your own gel polish, they come with a LED lamp and everything you need.  I hovered around in the Boots aisle for a while looking at this,  in terms of if you were to buy it all individually it probably wouldn't be far off the £69.99 price, except maybe the products would be bigger (I've read somewhere that each starter kit is good for 10 applications, then you need to buy more).  I'm really tempted by this as I love gel polishes but rarely have time for nail appointments, unless I find somewhere that does gel polish near work. I can, in theory, buy Shellac or similar but that can work out really really pricey.  Have any of you tried this, what did you think?  Is it worth the price?

Nails Inc The Medal Collection
These are to celebrate the Olympics (bronze, silver and gold, geddit?) but I don't really care about that.  I just like metallic polishes and these look like they'd be gorgeous on.  I want them!

Loreal Textured Nail Wraps
I've been ridiculously excited by these ever since I saw them on British Beauty Blog and can't wait for them to come out (apparently in late summer/early autumn).  I know Elegant Touch do textured nail wraps already but I like the designs better on these ones.  I was getting a bit bored of nail wraps, though the metallic ones will always be a winner with me, but this has got me interested again!  Have you tried textured nail wraps before?

Is there anything your nails are craving at the moment?  Have you tried any of these products?  What did you think of them?


  1. The textured nail wraps look lovely! Can't wait to try these when they come out :)

  2. Sensationail - am a big fan!!
    I got the kit when it first came out in March and have quite a few colours now. Stays on toes for about 6 weeks - am loving Coral Sunset at the moment. My other favourites on nails are Taupe Tulips for work and Pink Daisy for fun.
    Have definitely already saved the cost compared to having salon visits.
    I still find it amazing when you finish curing and wipe that it is rock solid and dry immediately. You need that in chilly UK - putting socks on immediately after pedicure is a big bonus :-) Also love that I can do it in front of the telly with a glass of wine after kids are in bed ;-)

    On wraps, I have tried some textured ones - really easy to do and look great for a day but they tend to invite 'picking' at the bobbly bits, which then come off so I didn't get them looking good for that long. Love the L'Oreal colour though :-)

  3. I am really interested in the Sensationail kit but I can't justify buying it without hearing more reviews let. Let me know if you end up trying it and how you like it!!
    Great post!

    Please check out my beauty blog!

  4. I saw the gel nail kit in Boots today! They still need to be cured under a lamp but I think they would be worth a try. Loving the textured nail wraps - I also saw them on british beauty blog and so tempted to get them but generally I do gels on my nails so not sure i'd get the use out of them. Really enjoyed your blog. Check mine if you fancy a read (its pretty new!)


Thank you for commenting, I read them all!
