More than half of men said their job performance has been negatively affected in the past by their seasonal allergies, compared with about 47% of women. And 2-in-5 men have struggled romantically because of seasonal allergies, compared with less than 28% of women.
SensatioNail launches at-home gel polish remover kit, tool
LAKE FOREST, Calif. — At-home gel polish brand SensatioNail has launched its new SensatioNail Gel Polish Removal Kit and Gel Polish Removal Tool.
"Our mission is to empower women with the tools they need to achieve salon results at home," stated SensatioNail SVP marketing and research and development Marwan Zreik. "We understand that women want to take beauty into their own hands, and that is why we are pioneering accessible, affordable offerings in the nail category."
The SensatioNail Gel Polish Removal Kit removes gel polish at home with the use of signature foil wraps. Users apply 100% acetone to the cotton pad within each wrap, place the pad directly onto the nail bed and seal shut. When placed around each finger, the wraps lock in the natural heat, making it easy for gel polish to lift off the nails. After 15 minutes, users remove wraps and gently push away gel polish with the included manicure stick. The Gel Polish Removal Kit contains three sets of 10 foil wraps, a SensatioNail four-way nail buffer and a manicure stick.
SensatioNail also has introduced a new Gel Polish Removal Tool, which is an alternative to the traditional wooden manicure stick. The Gel Polish Removal Tool is made of 100% stainless steel, features an easy-to-hold handle and an angled tip lift, and pushes gel polish away without any damage to the natural nails.
SensatioNail Gel Polish Removal Kit and Removal Tool, priced at $8.99 and $4.99, respectively, now are available at Walmart, CVS and Rite Aid locations nationwide.
