NutraNail Gel Perfect kit
Where To Buy: Drugstores, Ulta, Amazon
-basecoat is super glue.
Packaging: No problems with the packaging. The bottle is big enough to get a bunch of manicures out of the bottle. Instructions are clear and in several languages. Brushes are useful and functional.
I hate to say it, but this at home gel system is terrible. The idea is that you’re buying a gel polish that doesn’t require a light. It’s supposed to set within 5 minutes and not be dentable. After following the instructions, I learned the “activator” is super glue. Don’t touch it!! It doesn’t seem safe to use on nails. My nails weren’t fully dry for closer to an hour than 5 minutes. And they were chipped within an hour of being “dry” while under no pressure (I was just doing routine stuff, not car maintenance or dishes or anything). The polish didn’t apply very smoothly, it was a little gloopy so it didn’t even look that great when I was done. I’m usually pretty okay at painting my nails.
Other people have left similar reviews on Ulta’s website so I won’t go overboard but: overall, no, I would not purchase this and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Save your money.
