If you're anything like myself (all-be-it rather awkward and anti-social at times) where you like to do things and accomplish new things yourself in the comfort of your own home rather than pay extortionate prices to go to the salon and make small talk with some stranger to do them... Then you can get salon professional looking nails with this at home Gel Colour Manicure kit from Nutra Nail.
Preparation & Instructions
I spent a couple of minutes reading the instructions through before I started anything... always important to ensure you get the best results! I've seen a couple of bad reviews on this product and I couldn't understand why, most probably down to not following the instructions properly or not working quickly enough through the process! It's so simple and you get beautiful results!
I won't go into the how to's in this review as I would just be copying and pasting from the website/leaflet. However here's a couple of links you might like to check out -How it works & How to video
The manicure was quick and easy to do once you've read the instructions, It took me overall about 10 minutes to complete both hands, and then took just 5 minutes to set to a rock solid finish. My nails felt really strong after application.
Lotus is a gorgeous Hot Fuscia pink, the colour pay off is amazing! The polish finishes to a patent-leather shine which you can clearly see from the photo's above. The shine is achieved by using a special activator rather than waiting around for your nails to dry under a UV/LED light like normal treatments.
My manicure lasted just over 7 days before I noticed some small (not very noticeable) chipping on the top corner of one nail. The finish was still just as brilliantly shiny after this time, so I think you could easily manage between 7-10 days with the same manicure before removal.
The Nutra Nail No-Mess Express Remover is recommended to remove this polish. Unfortunately I was very disappointed with this, and would not recommend paying the extra £6.50 for this addition. "No-Mess"? I don't think so! I would instead recommend buying a bottle of pure acetone remover and trying out the Nail Polish Removal Foil Method.
Each kit costs £14.99, which may seem a little expensive at first... But I think you would achieve a minimum of 5 manicures from each kit. Compared to one manicure at a salon which would probably cost you around £20 a time. You do the maths ;)
I would totally recommend the polish kit, whether it be to get ready for a special event or night out, or even just to polish up your nails ready for work etc. I'll be honest, I've never actually been to a salon to have any sort of treatment on my nails, so I don't really know how this compares but it achieves what it claims to do so I'm impressed!
There are 8 different shades available including Lotus, Sheer Natural, Sheer Pink, Pretty Pink, Vintage Mauve, Sugar Plum, Sapphire and Dahlia.
The kits and express remover are available exclusively at Boots - LINK
