Our editor has shared her complete Le Mini Macaron review.
It’s unusual to catch me without a manicure. I constantly have something on my nails, whether it’s gel or conventional polish from the salon or a fast at-home mani. Why? First, my nails are quite brittle, but when I wear nail polish, they are less likely to break; second, my job requires me to take a lot of shots of items, specifically holding products, and I believe that a little colour makes everything appear better.
In between salon appointments, I enjoy doing my own manicures at home and feel myself to be fairly skilled at them. The only issue is that they chip so readily that it sometimes feel like a waste of time to paint my nails in the first place. That’s when I started researching at at-home gel manicure kits and found the cutest one yet called Le Mini Macaron.
Le Mini Macaron Gel Manicure Kit: What’s Included
Le Mini Macaron gets its name from the macaron-shaped LED light. Unlike standard LED lamps, which are only practical, the Le Mini Macaron Gel Manicure Kit ($35) is also really cute. It comes in a variety of colours and two sizes: tiny (for healing one finger at a time) and large (for your full hand). (I have the small pink lamp.) It’s powered by a USB connector, so you can take it with you and use it on the go.
What’s Included in the Le Mini Macaron Gel Manicure Kit:
Gel nail polish
Mini nail file
10 gel-polish remover wipes
LED lamp with USB cord
Le Mini Macaron Gel Nail Polish
While the gel kits include a bottle of polish, depending on the option, you can purchase additional one-step gel nail polish hues individually. The brand offers every colour imaginable, from contemporary greens to classic beige tones.
For my fingertips, I usually wear red in the fall and winter and light pink in the spring and summer. My favourite colours are Pomegranate ($12), Crème D’Abricot ($12), and Fairy Floss ($12).
