Gel manicures at home, for less

Let me fully admit right up front that I do not understand this whole gel nail polish craze, other than that people swear it lasts longer, looks better, and possibly cures cancer (maybe not that last part). I almost never wear nail polish on my hands, on account of I am klutzy enough, thanks, and don’t need further visual evidence of whatever I’ve just tripped over or fallen into.

That said, if you’re intrigued by the gel thing, I can show you a cheaper way to do it.

Right now Drugstore.com is offering an extra 30% off everything in the makeup & accessories department. Search for sensationails kit to find the SensatioNail Gel Polish Starter Kit marked down to $49.99. (For reference: This kit is currently $70 at Amazon.) Add the kit to your cart and apply coupon code 5DB56E1A to drop the price to $34.99. At that point it’ll ship for free, too, so you’re getting the kit for about half price and free shipping.

I still don’t know if it’s the miracle everyone claims it is, but for less than the cost of two cheap manicures, it seems like an affordable way to check it out.

    I am addicted to gel polish but just watched a segment on the news and subsequently read several articles online saying the UV dryers that “set” the polish cause cancer. I’ve never heard of cuticle cancer before but a friend from HS just posted about her friend having it. Now I’m torn!

      This kit comes with an LED lamp, which is considered safer than the salon UV lamps (though the resultant manicure probably isn’t as “hard” as the salon one). That said, my information comes from Dr. Google, so proceed at your own risk. ;)
