SensatioNail was one of the first to enter the at-home gel polish market, and to this day they are still one of my favorites for overall quality, ease of use, accessibility and performance. A kit will cost about $25 for an LED Lamp, Primer, Base/Top Coat, Gel Color, and Cleanser while individual shades cost about $8 each (and there’s lots of them, including magnetic and limited-edition shades).
I also like how SensatioNail as various removal kits & tools, as well as almost all of their essential products can be purchased individually. Recently, SensatioNail also created some amazing accessories, like this one to transform any nail polish into a gel polish, this matte top coat , these peel-off base stickers and an express one-step polish .

The topic of my master’s thesis evolved not only from my own interest and fascination of jacquard weaving. A little bit of luck contributed to the final outcome of this study as well. At an early point of my study, I wanted to discuss the material and col-our design of woven textiles. I considered various ways on how to approach the subject from a fresh and meaningful point of view. In the beginning of the spring of 2014, I spent three months on an internship at the Italian weaving mill Lodetex. Lodetex is specialized in the production of jacquard fabrics for furnishing markets. I decided that doing my thesis in collaboration with Lodetex would be a viable continuum after working in the company as an intern. I discussed the matter with owner Luca Farhanghi and he agreed that a thesis collaboration would be interesting and beneficial for the both of us. He informed me about a few production lines that the company planned on developing. One of these lines related to clipped designs. To me, the development of clipped designs seemed like a fascinating and interesting topic to research. Since I had already designed two clipped designs during my internship, I realized that the weaving process of these fabrics required more advanced technical understanding in interwoven structure of cloth. Therefore, this project gave me a chance to improve my skills in artistic expression as well as develop my knowledge in designing, weaving and finishing of clipped cloths.
