As per my previous post (here) of buying nail polish at fiveBelow, I finally used the Nutra Nail Gel Perfect manicure and have to admit that it was well worth the $5.00. After wiping my bare nails with a little alcohol, I followed the directions of unscrewing all the bottles and polishing nails with the activator first. One hand at a time, immediately apply the color over the activator, then clean the brush before doing a second coat.
I repeated the same procedure on the second hand and after 15 minutes it still felt tacky to the touch. I had used too much of the color polish but it hardened after I ran my hands under cold water which was suggested (old school). The good thing about this product is that you don’t need a base or top coat and it dries quickly without the use of an ultra violet light which is used in the salons.
I wish it came in more colors because I would definitely buy this product again.
If you ever shopped at a five Below you’d know that in addition to the toys, school supplies, candy, plastic wear, swimwear, iPhone/laptop/computer accessories, blah blah blah blah blah, they also carry nailwear and cosmetics on the cheap. I stopped in last evening and picked up a few items to add to my already excessive nail polish collection! Unfortunately, my nails were weaken by a Gel manicure done at a salon so I have been doing my own and I like the new colors and products currently on the market. fiveBelow also carries a brand of the Magnetic nail polish which I would like to try, but they only had one bottle and it was a color that I didn’t particularly like so I’ll check another store over the weekend.
