What do you do about home-done gel nails when you go on holiday? If you get 2-3 weeks from a product, great, but if you are like me and have fast regrowth, or need to do repairs, you touch up with a complementary lacquer or head to a salon. Salon prices after DIY can be awesome – I paid over $CAN 80 in Calgary this summer, double the norm in the UK.
So I’ve bought a mini LED lamp for travelling. It came from the States, via ebay, but was under £20 including postage. It’s shaped like a computer mouse, is very light, and comes with a two charger cables. One has the US flat 2-pin plug and the second is a USB charger which you can link into a port on a computer. BUT – I found that a standard mobile phone charger also fits the socket on the little lamp so UK users can plug it into an electric socket no problem! This also reduces the
number of chargers you have to pack.
An indispensible little gadget. There are loads available on ebay – search for mini LED lamp.
