Super Sensatio-NAILS 

We get fed up when our ordinary polish takes a long time to dry and chips after only a few days, so we were pleasantly surprised when this little kit (SensatioNail polish to gel transformer starter kit, £49.99, Boots) turned up at our desks last week. A gel kit like no other which turns your normal favourite nail polishes into super shiny long lasting gel polish.

The kit is very compact and cute unlike other gel starter kits that we’ve used before and very quick to use. The only thing we’d like added to the kit would be remover. – Alternatively we use Elegant Touch Get ‘em off Nail Remover, £2.65, Boots [find it here] which is cheap and fantastic at removing all gel polish and much much cheaper than most too! The kit makes it easy to mix up the polish, and you use a lot less polish than you do re dipping into the bottle everytime which means your fave colours will last you a lifetime! Application was swift – we completed one hand at a time for the fastest and best results, and after 12 days our nails are still going strong! 

The SensatioNail polish to gel transformer starter kit includes: 1 x LED nail lamp; 1 x USB lead; 1 x UK mains adapter; 1 x Gel cleanser (14.6ml); 1 x Gel primer (3.54ml); 1 x Polish to gel transformer (7.39ml); 1 x Mixing pot; 1 x Manicure stick; 12 x lint free wipes; 1 x Double sided nail buffer

Opening the archive

Taking inspiration and design from the historic archives of Sanderson, (a well know print company who’ve specialised in printing wallpapers since 1860) comes the curated collection for bath, body and home in four new and unique fragrances.

Dating back to the last century, Sanderson have picked four of their renowned designs, bringing them to us in new colorways, and in the form of a fragrance created by specialist perfumers to evoke the mood of the designs in a new and exciting way and injected into beautiful beauty products.

Created without parabens and sulfates, here in England, the collection comes in copper detailed pump bottles and delicately scented and pretty patterned drawer liners.

We were lucky enough to get our hands on the Rose & Peony 1927 set. This pattern began life as a luxury wallpaper design in 1927, produced by surface roller printing at the original Sanderson wallpaper factory in Chiswick. It continue life as a fabric in 1930 and had been one of the favourites ever since.
It now comes to life in a new colour way of marine hues, of blues and lime and a fragrance to reflect the freshness of the colourway. Scented with ‘Aromatic Green scents’ of Bregamot, cardamom, nutmeg and lavenders on a base of Amber this is a lovely scented collection with dresser top display quality packaging. The copper pumped bottles and patterned tubes will look great anywhere with the classic patterns across the collections.
