Nutra nail Gel Perfect UV-Free Gel-Color Review Video

For some reason I have been very into trying new things on my nails recently, even though I think I rocked punk shimmer purple nail polish for 90% of the summer and fall... I am sort of feeling delicate pinks right now.   I bought this new product I saw at CVS called Nutra Nail Gel Perfect UV-Free Gel-Color (#12750 in Sheer Pink).   I guess it's a cheaper alternative to the Shellac and other products that I have been seeing everywhere.

 It was a tiny bit annoying to apply- there are three bottles: Activator, Gel Color and Cleaner and basically you rotate through all three for each coat so it gets kind of complicated.

You apply the activator on five fingers and then quickly apply a thin coat of sheer pink... then you plop the brush from the gel into the cleaner bottle and swap the cleaner brush into the gel- and start over with the activator applying a coat to all five nails again and then using the now swapped cleaner brush you apply the gel to all the nails again.   When you finish you swap the cleaner and gel brushes again and wipe the brushes on a paper towel and then put them back in their original bottles.   Then you do the other hand.

So it's a tiny bit tedious.   However- they DID dry almost immediately and I am typing ten minutes after finished and I recorded my review on youtube after five so... thumbs up for doing what it says on the box but I probably wouldn't buy it again because, for $12 I'd get a manicure at a salon with a neck rub!   Check out my video and let me know what you think - Thanks!

***********UPDATE**********
Alright, I tried to have an open mind and be fair but after five days some of my nails started cracking and chipping which really got aggravating- specifically since this stuff is IMPOSSIBLE to get off of your nails!   You need acetone to do it, and as luck would have it I only have NON acetone nail polish remover so it was a fight and I ended upjust going over some of it with a purple nail polish.   Not fun.
