Giveaway- SensatioNail Gel Nail Polish!

Giveaway- SensatioNail Gel Nail Polish!

Not since the introduction of acrylic has something so drastically changed the way we polish our nails. Gel nail polish has taken salons by storm and everyone is clamoring to get in on the beauty action.

If you’re not familiar with gel polish allow me to blow your mind. Gel polish is all the rage because it’s thin and flexible, meaning there will be no cracking or chipping of your lovely manicure and lasts up to 2 whole weeks (sometimes more depending on how fast your nails grow and what you get your hands into). Also, gel polish protects the underlying nail from breaking or chipping so you nails can grow long and strong. Gel polish is perfect for someone who has trouble growing their nails. If all that is not enough, the polish also stays extra shiny for the life of your manicure AND is perfectly dry within seconds. ZERO dry time!

It wasn’t so long ago that I was calling around to even find a nail salon that carried this magical nail polish everyone was talking about, the only drawback being that it could only be done by a professional in a salon. Bummer…until now.

As a stay-at-home-mom my hands are everywhere, and I mean everywhere (use your imagination, I won’t gross you out with the details), so regular polish just doesn’t cut it for me so I rarely even bother to put it on (much less have the extra time and money to go to the nail salon every week). When I was given the opportunity to try the brand new SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish by Nailene , I was beyond stoked. But I have to be honest with you, I was also a bit apprehensive. I have a confession, I absolutely, without a doubt, suck at painting my own nails. Like really suck. I am right-handed and my left hand is basically useless. I can’t even change a diaper with my left hand, how exactly am I supposed to paint my other hand with something that is ment to be difficult to get off. What if I screw it up?

Well, lucky for me it was MUCH easier than I had anticipated and I ended up with salon looking gel polished nails. I’ve even had compliments from random people at Starbucks! You should have seen their faces when I told them I did it myself at home! Even my friend Laura commented on how good they looked over lunch, and she’s tough to please.

The process is super easy and I found it to be much less time-consuming than it is at the salon. The consistency was very smooth which was helpful when painting my opposite hand. It flowed and spread all on its own so it came out smooth and beautiful. I was not expecting that.

I think the light is what makes it the coolest. You get a miniature version of the big salon LED light in the starter kit! The light cures and sets the polish in either a 30 or 60 second process (depending on which step you’re on). The light itself will turn off when you get to the 60 second point and beep at 30 seconds.



I can’t even tell you how easy this was. Honestly, it was EASIER than regular polish and because it is gel polish, there is absolutely NO dry time! Which was perfect considering nap time was over. (Reason #987453847 why I don’t paint my own nails. Who has that kind of time to sit around and wait for their polish to dry? If I had that kind of time my house would be way cleaner than it is now.)

There are currently 12 colors  to choose from and I hear they are adding more soon. And even if you’re not a colored polish kind of girl, you can use just the clear top coat and reap the same benefits that gel polish is known for without the color.

When I told some of my girlfriends that I was going to be trying this out, I can’t tell you how many people were dying to see what I thought. Well, I love it. I may go get pedicures once a week but I am no longer paying for mani’s. Why would I when I can do just as good a job at home for less?

SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish is currently sold at your local CVS and Wal-Mart stores but you can check here to find a location nearest you.

The SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit retails for $59.99 which comes with everything you need to achieve 10 salon perfect manicures, including the LED lamp and one color, with additional colors being sold separately for $11.99. But remember, the polish lasts for 2 full weeks (at least) and at 10 applications per kit, that’s about $6 per manicure!

    Mauve Maven

  10. definately the raspberry wine!

  11. I’d love the Coral Sunset!

  12. I think I would pick the espresso color or the one next to it, Ocean something or other lol. I’ve been dying to try gel nails, but a bit apprehensive I don’t want to ruin my own long, strong natural nails. How was the removal process?

    • I was just at the nail salon getting a pedicure on Saturday and used that opportunity to have them soak them off. (I’m dying to try the coral color so I needed to get that color off, but they were still in perfect shape.) So it was very easy, for me at least. :) My sister-n-law, who have this same polish on, mentioned that she took a really hot bath and was able to peel them off. My nails are in perfect shape right now after having them remved on Saturday. :) (PS, the company gives lots of tips, tricks and advice on removal on their website, as well as, on their twitter account. Feel free to contact them with any questions.)

  13. I would love the coral sunset color,it is so pretty and perfect for the spring.

    • I think so too. I took this color off on Saturday just so I can try the coral. :) The Pink Daisy is super cute too. My sister-in-law had that on this weekend.

  14. Raspberry Wine!! That’s pretty.

  15. Love your blog and the starter kit sounds great esp if it would help grow my nails which chip, break, split apart and are pitted & have visible ridges due to psoriasis. But truthfully the price of the kit is STEEP. For someone like me on SSDI that sometimes has to decide between medication and food during the month, spending that kind of $$$$ is hard to consider. And I never win things like this, too unlucky in life I suppose.

  16. Colleen Ryan :

    I LOVE shellac manicures at the salon and now I am SO EXCITED to hear about something affordable I can do at home! I can’t wear polish often with my profession but I LOVE to put it on whenever I have the chance since otherwise my nails remain short and break and chip so easily… I am SO excited to try this soon. I will do many a manicures with the simple clear topcoat but I’d love to try the Coral Sunset too! Thanks for the review letting us know it’s worth trying and the opportunity to try it free!

  17. Coral sunset would be my pick!! :)

  18. Coral sunset! I can’t wait for them to come out with brighter colors!

  19. If I won, I’d pick the Scarlett red!

  23. Para terminar, ha hablado de las personas. Los datos han de contribuir al conocimiento, y la estructura de la empresa debe fomentar que este conocimiento se traduzca en acción. Pere ha puesto al día la regla del 10/90 de Avinash: el 90% no se debe invertir en âtÂsœanali€Âas” si no en “generar conocimiento”, ya sea en personas, herramientas, partners…
