Hi! My name is Carrie. I’m 40 years old and have been married for 18 years. My stepdaughter and her husband just blessed us with our first grandson, who I am head over heals in love with. I went to school to be a teacher, but currently work in accounts payable for a private company. I live in Ohio, but my heart belongs to the Smoky Mountains and hope to move there eventually. I have four dogs that I talk about too much, one of which is on her way to becoming a certified therapy dog.

GIFT IDEA – MelodySusie Pro48W Nail Dryer & Gel Nail Polish
PRICE Price for Nail Dryer $109.99. Price for set of Gel Nail Polish $25.99.
I am a nail polish nut. I don’t feel dressed unless my nails are done. However, I’m frugal and therefor don’t often (as in maybe every couple years) spend the money on a professional nail salon. I prefer to do them at home, while watching Netflix. Over the years I have tried countless brands of nail polish, searching for the elusive shiny, pretty, no chip, smudge free, holy grail of nail polish. I might find one with a couple of the attributes but never all of them.
Ironically one of my biggest pet peeves are smudges and since I typically fall asleep shortly after doing my nails, I almost always have them. So when the chance came up to review the MelodySusie Pro48W Nail dryer, I eagerly waved my chipped and smudged hand in the air for a chance.
Since I like to research things, I immediately went to my holy bible of retail –Amazon—and started checking out reviews. It turns out the MelodySusie is one of their best customer reviewed nail lamps. The specific one I received is the Pro 48 watt which is basically like bringing home a professional manicurists tools.
I set up a date with my mom so that we could both try it out. It so happens that the Pro 48 nail dryer is amazingly easy to use. You simply plug it in, push one of the three preset timing buttons (15 seconds, 30 seconds or 60 seconds) and you are ready to go. If you are doing a pedicure, you just pop of the bottom plate and do the same thing.
I was also provided with the Lux Classics gel nail polish, which is a set of 6 gorgeous fall colors that retail for $25.99. I chose the Sapphire and mom went with the Elegant Magenta. Your dryer is plugged in and waiting for you, your nails are clean and dry, the next step is to apply a thin, even coat of color. As you finish one hand you simply place it in the dryer and the sensor turns it on automatically. I tried 15 seconds but felt my nails weren’t quite done. 30 seconds and they were perfect. Apply a second coat and repeat. If you want a truly deep color you even apply a third coat.
I have to admit that I was astonished at how dry my nails were. I kept tapping them to see if they would dent or smudge. Not a ding! Two coats of polish and 30 seconds for each coat and my nails were diamond hard and shiny. I’m going to have to purchase a MelodySusie dryer for my mom or I have a feeling mine will disappear from my house after one of her visits.
