"A diferencia de las aparatosas lámparas de secado que solemos ver en los salones de belleza, estos mini macarons -que además nos encantan por sus colores y diseños- fijan el esmalte en segundos tras introducir las uñas en su interior." ("Unlike the huge drying lamps that we usually see in the beauty salons, these mini macarons - which we also love for their colors and designs - affix the gel in seconds after placing the nails inside.")

Meet the Adorable Macaron LED Lamp
February 4, 2015
"With bright bubble colors and fun flavors, macarons make the perfect muse for nail products. That fun, sugary vibe is half the reason we’re drooling over the new Kickstarter from Camelia Beauty, the Le Mini Macaron one-finger LED lamp. The other half is that it’s wildly practical. This little guy has a USB adapter, which means you plug it into your computer and cure your gel polish at home (only 30 seconds per nail) while you type or peruse the web."

October 24, 2015
"The mini macaron shape is super adorable and makes the LED lamp fun to use. It's hard to beat the positive experience with Le Mini Macaron. Not having to stress about trying to get nails to dry is a HUGE plus and basically the entire point. Also, the fact that it can either be plugged into the wall or using the USB cable with your laptop is a another pro! ...if we had to pick just one kit, we'd go with Le Mini Macaron!!"

10 New Beauty Gadgets You Need In Your Life
Katie McCarthy, November 13, 2015
"TBH, the product’s too-cute packaging and insanely low price made me seriously underestimate this fabulous beauty value. The included polish is thick and easy to control during application and the process of painting and curing one nail at a time allows you set the polish before it has a chance to bleed into your cuticles. It took just 30 minutes to give myself a glossy red manicure as durable and professional-looking as any salon gel mani. And the teeny-tiny lamp fit easily into my toiletry bag on a trip out of town."
Kelsey Castañon, June 28, 2017
"...it still feels fun and indulgent if you're ever looking to treat yourself on a weekend, and it leaves your hands smelling like fresh flowers for hours afterward. As for my cuticles, they certainly looked more hydrated for a day or so afterward, even if not completely transformed. It made them that much more presentable, which to me was well worth the extra 15 minutes in my day. Much like Shakira’s hips, hands don’t lie."
"This festive version of Le Mini Macaron’s sweetly packaged at-home gel kit may look cute, but a gimmick it is not. Containing a USB-powered LED lamp alongside all the essential accessories and a bottle of glitter-drenched varnish, it’ll deliver salon-quality results from the comfort of your own sofa."
