SensatioNail Polish to Gel Transformer Starter Kit Review

I was recently sent the SensatioNail Polish to Gel Transformer Starter Kit* to try out. I do love wearing nail polish, but as I have weak nails and do a lot of things that tend to make nail polish chip or break my nails I never get to wear it more than 2 or 3 days at a time before it is all chipped and looks a mess. I was really thrilled to get the chance to try  the SensatioNail Polish to Gel Transformer Starter Kit to see if it really worked.

It's fairly easy to use and doesn't take that much longer then applying your normal nail polish.  First file and lightly buff your nails and wipe them clean with the Gel Cleanser, then apply a layer of the Gel Primer to nails and air dry.  Mix equal parts of the Polish to Gel product from the kit and your chosen nail polish together in the dish provided.    Then apply a thin layer of the mixture to your nails and cure them for 30 seconds using the LED lamp from the kit, then apply another coat of polish and cure for 30 seconds and then seal in the colour with the Polish to Gel formula and cure for 15 seconds. The LED lamp flashes at 15 seconds and switches off at 30 seconds. Finally wipe off the moisture layer using the Gel Cleanser and lint free wipe.  The whole process was easy to do and actually dried my nail polish much quicker then when I apply my fast drying top coat.  I was comfortable straight after the last cure to do things using my hands without the risk of chipping or smudging my polish.

I did find that when mixing my nail polish with the Polish to Gel formula that it did come out a slightly lighter colour, so you may have to apply 3 coats of your polish, but this was probably more noticeable because I decided to paint one hand using the starter kit and the other just using the nail polish with a base coat and top coat in order to compare how long they both lasted.

I was very impressed with the results and will let the photos below do the talking.

Day 5
The nails using the starter kit are still looking great, but the ones just using the nail polish are starting to chip and look messy.

Day 8 
My nails using the starter kit are still looking good.  If I was being really picky I would say one nail has a very small chip which isn't noticeable in the photos. My nails where I haven't used the starter kit are very chipped and a couple of the nails have broken at the tips and are a bit ragged. Really at this stage I should take off the nail polish as it looks very messy on one hand, but I am going to keep it on for another couple of days to see if the ones using the starter kit start to chip at all.

Day 10
The nails using the starter kit have 1 nail which is starting to chip but overall still look great.  My nails on the other hand are very badly chipped.

To remove this polish you just need to buff your nails to break the top coat seal and then soak your nails in acetone nail polish remover for 5 minutes and then gently push the remaining polish off the nails with the removal tool that's included. This was easy to do and unlike other gel polishes that I've used when my nails were really weak after removing the polish my nails weren't damaged.

I am very impressed with the SensatioNail Polish to Gel Transformer Starter Kit. It lasted 10 days which is great and was easy to apply and remove.  It kept my nails looking smart and professional and would be great to use when going on holiday. My nails haven't broken since using the starter kit which is very unusual for me.  I am really glad I got the chance to try out this kit as it really works and makes nail polish last much longer.  I think this would also make a great birthday or Christmas gift if you know people who love painting their nails.

SensatioNail Polish to Gel Transformer Starter Kit is currently available for £49.99 at Boots.  That is expensive, but considering how much gel nails cost at a salon, I think it's a good deal.
