Good morning readers!
We have a store up here called “Five Below”. Everything in the store costs $5 or less. I went in looking to pick up a new nail buffer when I stumbled across a Nutra Nail Gel Perfect kit.
I gave the kit a try for the first time yesterday. I looks like regular nail polish, however, there are some extra steps. First, you begin with the “activator”. It looks like a base coat of regular polish though it is more water like. Then you apply the color. You have to do one hand at a time or you run the risk of the activator drying which would make the polish not adhere. Overall it took me about 15 minutes to put two coats on all 10 of my nails. It actually went faster than using regular polish because you don’t need to (and shouldn’t) wait for each coat to dry.
The kit cost me only $5 at “Five Below”. When I opened the box I found a coupon for $2 off of another kit. So if this holds up as long as a professional gel manicure I will go back and buy another kit for only $3. If you don’t have a “Five Below” near you the Nutra Nail Gel Perfect kit is available at drug stores as well.
It has been 24 hours so far and I have no hints of chipping. I have had regular gel manicures done at a salon in the past. I absolutely love them, however, the UV light makes me a little weary. I try to save getting a professional gel manicure done for special occasions.
Do you have gel manicures done? Have you ever tried an at-home kit?
Enjoy your Wednesday!
