Sensationail: French Tips.

Sensationail: French Tips.

I have had my Sensationail kit for a year now & I absolutely love it. I haven’t really mentioned it that much on my blog apart from in my December Favourites here, so thought I’d show you how I do french tips, step by step using the UV lamp.

  1. Get everything out that you are going to be using, there if nothing worse when you remember you need something half way through & end up with fluff stuck to your nails, trust me it’s a nightmare to get off.
  2. Prep your nails using a nail file, I hate this bit, file until you have a rough base, as seen in picture 3.
  3.  Filed base.
  4. Get hold of your finishing wipe liquid.
  5. Use a lint wipe & finishing liquid to wipe all the crappy stuff off your nail.
  6. Apply a THIN & I mean thin all over the nail not touching your cuticles.
  7. Put under the lamp to cure for 60 secs.
  8. I used Babydoll Pink, which is a very light pink as my base colour, you can use any colour you would like!
  9. Cure this for 60 secs & apply another layer & cure again for 60 secs.

  1. Take the white tips out of the packet & find the correct size for the tip of your nail.
  2. Once stuck on your finger, fold the remaining under your nail & file around the edge.
  3. When all tips are covered, take the top coat and apply a thin layer on each nail & put in to cure for 30secs.
  4. Again get the finishing liquid & wipes all the residue off.
  5. & tada.. all done!

 

Do you use a UV/LED lamp?! If so what is your favourite gel colour?!

    I’m so used to acrylics. I don’t know if this would be for me! Is it expensive… I’ve never heard of it before but it has intrigued me!

      It’s so cheap! The kit is £70 & you get everything you need with it. It’s much better for your nails than acrylics xx
