Fuse Gelnamel Vamp nail starter kit - Currently on offer in Boots for £19.99 instead of £35.

Kit Contains
  • Fuse LED lam
  • Fuse Gelnamel (10.65ml)
  • Cleanser
  • 12 lint-free wipe
  • Double sided nail buffer and Manicure stick
Fuse Gelnamel has been developed for people who did not want the multiple steps & 2 week wear of a full gel polish, but still wanted no dry time. Fuse is described as being neither a full gel, or a standard polish – it’s a combination that applies in 1 coat (you can do 2 if you prefer), cures in 30 seconds and lasts for up to 7 days. what I love about this kit is that it is portable! You know when you are going on holiday, you have had your nails done and then you chip one - annoying! Well rather than carry half your manicure kit with you, all you need is this box of joy. 

 The lamp, is designed to fit one finger in it at a time, so if you are like me and like to take your time to do your nails to ensure each one is done properly, well this little beauty is just amazing! You can either plug it in at the mains, or whilst you are sat commenting on blogs, or even writing your post, you can use the USB adaptor and use it whilst blogging or reading the news or whatever - what a good idea that is right?  I think it is amazing and it is currently my favourite gadget!

Fuse polishes are available in a wide variety of colours and cost £15 each and again there is a current offer of buy one get one half price on these polishes.

The final products for the nail lovers is this trio from Nail HQ which work to help protect and nourish.

Described as being a new generation of nail treatments which uses cutting edge ingredients and formulations, Nail HQ offers you naturally beautiful nails that are nourished, strong and glossy.  Within this trio is the following:

Ridge Filler - Oxygenating Formulation.

Specifically formulated for weak, damaged and thin ridged nails. This smooth ridge filler gives a subtle sheen finish that revitalizes the nail. 

The formulation gives it unique hydrating, moisturizing and conditioning attributes which will help nails become more flexible, help regulate nail growth and improve the wear of nail enamel by providing adhesion properties.

Protect & Repair with Root Ginger and Hydrolyzed Collagen

With Root Ginger, Rice Protein, Soy Protein & Hydrolyzed Collagen. This clear coat is formulated for weak and soft nails.  Contains water to help hydrate/moisturize and condition. This helps maintain nail flexibility.

For initial treatment apply one coat without colour. Reapply daily over existing coats until your nails improve. After 5 days, remove with mild nail enamel remover and re-start the process.

All in One with Argan Oil

A multi solution product with Argan Oil & replenishing mineral complex.These ingredients help provide the moisture balance necessary to have flexible nails and prevent brittleness & breakage.

This formula also contains a unique mineral complex designed to help moisturize, condition & strengthen

I have been using all three of these products for last 6 weeks and have noticed some improvement in my nails.  I suffer with weak nails, they split and peel which is really annoying, so by using the All in One solution, whilst my nails are not perfect, they do peel less than they did.

The final present for any nail lover has to be a decent nail file, especially one which is as cute as this from Catseye London, everyone knows how much I love cats, I have three of my own, so for me, this nail file set and mirror would be a perfect addition to any stocking.
