As I said in my November Favorites Post, I’m going to talk about this recent discovery I made ! Someone that I know received a Le Mini Macaron Manicure Kit as a present, and as soon as the concept was explained to me I knew I needed to get one of those. So, now that I took time to get my hands on it and test it, I’m going to review this product !
This is a Gel Polish Manicure Kit that dries with blue light, to do at home. I already knew about gel polish that dries in an instant with light, but somehow it seemed too complicated for me, the light device never seemed really practical, and I guess I just didn’t have much interest for it.
I got tempted because of the compactness (and cuteness, let’s not lie) of the macaron shaped light, it looked so tiny ! And as I saw how easy it was to use, I decided to take my first step into the gel polish world.
• Here’s what the kit contains :
✘ 1 Led Lamp
✘ 10 Remover Pads
✘ 1 Gel Polish Bottle
✘ 1 Nail File
✘ 1 Cuticle Stick
✘ 1 USB Adapter
• The application is the easiest :
✘ Apply a very thin first coat on your nail
✘ Put it 30 seconds into the macaron light (it will turn off by itself)
✘ meanwhile, apply the polish on the next nail
This product actually lasts longer if you don’t apply too much product, so make sure your layers are thin ! Two layers worked fine for me.
Just a tip : The first time I put the polish on, I did the dishes the same day, and that made it chip the next day. So don’t do the dishes without dish gloves !
Apart from that, the polish lasts a week before it gets damaged.
But the great news is that if a nail chipped : you can easily fix it in 30 seconds.
And that friends, is what I call progress !
And to end, here are both shades on my nails ? :
What do you think of this mini macaron kit ? ?
