Beauty brands are always trying to make our lives easier with DIY versions of salon treatments, and the Nutra Nail Gel Perfect 5 Minute Gel-Colour Manicure is a fab little number for salon style gel lovers.
This is different to other “at home” gel products as there is no UV or LED light required. Everything you need is inside the box for under $25.00.
I’ve been wearing Dahlia, a rich dark shade (pictured). I love everything nails, nail polish, nail appliques, stick on nails – but I am prone to chips due to a busy lifestyle and two little children. I can’t compare these to the light versions because I haven’t yet tried to DIY these but I can say the Nutra Nails lasted much longer than regular polish.
So, how does it work? Lets start by saying there is no formaldehyde, DBP or Toluene. Inside this “5 minute kit” you will find 3 products – the gel colour, activator and brush cleaner. To begin you apply the activator and immediately a thin coat of colour. Repeat the steps (while cleaning your brush in between as per instructions), wait a few minutes and your colour is set. It feels stronger than nail polish and if you do get any chipping you can do touch ups with the same method.
If you can apply nail polish, you can apply this – very quick and easy and the harder coat will also help to protect your nails.
To remove you can use the Nutra Nail No-Mess Express Gel Perfect Remover, or a regular Acetone nail polish remover.
