What Is The Best At Home Gel Nail Kit?

Throughout lockdown, we all turned to an at home gel nail kit due to our beloved nail salons closing (for the right reasons, obviously).

It’s no secret that some home gel manicure kits can be disastrous, so we’ve whittled down all the gel nail kits out there to figure out which one – or ones – give you a salon-worthy manicure at home.

Look Fantastic’s At Home Gel Nail Kits

The smallest – and perhaps cutest – at home gel nail kit on the market belongs to Le Mini Macaron.

One of their kits includes an LED light, one of their gel polishes, cuticle pusher, nail file and ten remover wraps for just £34.99.

Le Mini Macaron is also a brand which loves nail art – they have kits dedicated to it as well as individual products on their website.

Look Fantastic also stock Red Carpet Manicure. This kit includes

  • Professional LED Light
  • Purify Pre and Post Application Cleanser
  • Prep Max Adhesion Sanitiser
  • Structure base coat gel
  • Brilliance seal and shine top coat
  • Erase Gel Nail Polish Remover
  • Revitalise Nourishing Cuticle Oil
  • LED Gel Polish in Red Carpet Reddy

It might seem pricey at £90 but you get a lot of bang for your buck.

For those of you who love gel manicures but don’t want to want your normal nail varnish, SensatioNail have the answer!

They have created a Polish to Gel Starter Kit which transforms any of your varnishes into ‘a long-lasting, super-shiny gel polish’ and for £50 we think that’s a bargain!

For anyone who doesn’t want to commit to UV lamps, buffing, filing, soaking, etc, why not try one of our beloved polish brand’s take on a gel kit.

Essie has a line of ‘Gel Couture’ varnishes which are more often than not on offer at the high street chain – meaning you can get a ‘kit’ for gel nails for less than £20!
