Christmas Gift Guide Ideas for the Beauty Lover: Rokit Gel Professional Nail Kit

I'm not the biggest 'girlie girl' in the world, quite the opposite in fact, but I do love having my nails looking lovely.

Rokit have launched a brand new gel manicure kit that promises to give you salon quality nails in the comfort of your own home and I couldn't wait to put it to the test.

The kit includes:
  • Rokit Professional LED Curing Lamp
  • Two sided nail file/buffer
  • x20 lint free cleaning pads
  • 5ml Rokit One Stop Gel Polish
  • 50ml Rokit Ready
  • 50ml Rokit Remove

Firstly, you need to prep your nails by filing and shaping them then pushing back cuticles. Following this, you use a lint free cleansing pad to apply a small amount of Rokit ready which cleans yours nails in preparation for application.

Next, you apply one even thin coat of Rokit One Step Gel Polish then put your nails under the LED curing lamp for one minute. It switches on using the black button and you need to time it yourself. When the minute is up, apply a second coat and put your nails back under, this time for 2.5 mins. The lamp is set to turn off after 2.5 minutes which is great as no doubt I'd end up losing count! It is recommended to do four nails on one hand, four nails on the other then the two thumb nails which makes it very easy to use. I originally thought that it may be a pain and take ages but the kit eliminates drying time so I think it ends up being even quicker AND it looks better = win-win.

I absolutely love how it is left my nails looking and it will definitely be used a lot. The gel nails stay at a great quality for up to 14 days. Usually after painting my nails they're chipping after a few days!

Removal is easy too. Just pour some of the Rokit Remove into a bowl and rub off your nails using a lint free cleansing pad.

The Rokit Gel Professional Nail Kit retails at £99.99 but at the time of writing is on offer at £70.00 and is available at Debenhams.

  1. OOoh! this looks awesome, I had my first gel nail experience at a salon last week and impressed with how neat they look and how long they last! Sadly I'm not sure I can afford this but maybe someone else will oblige if I drop enough hints!
