Review: Nutra Nail ~ Gel Perfect 5 Minute Gel-Color ~ Sugar Plum

Posted on: April 30, 2013

So, I have a confession to make, I did not care for this week’s number for The Nail Polish Lottery Club. On my list for me it was this Nutra Nail Gel Perfect 5 minute Gel-Color. I was going to “cheat” and use one of the alternate numbers. The number this week is 76 with alternate numbers being 13 or 4. (Barry M Bright Pink is my #4). But I thought I’d stick with the guidelines, isn’t this the whole idea behind the #NPLClub? To use polish in our collection we haven’t used? So I tried this Nutra Fail Nail.

Nutra Nail Gel Perfect 5 Minute Gel color Manicure. The claims on the box are: sets Rock Solid in 5 minutes, Lasting Patent Leather Shine.
πŸ”΄ No UV light needed
πŸ”΄ Ding Free Protection
πŸ”΄ Quick and easy application, all you need is in this box (That part was true, the rest was a lie)
There is a large sheet of paper with instructions, front and back. This morning I carefully read the instructions and applied exactly as directed.


First glance of my left hand and the nails look pretty good, they dried fine, they were rock solid but they also had a weird divot on my pointer and ring finger.
My left hand never did dry, I even used my little UV light from Sally Hansen” and they were still mushy. When they did dry they have an ashy look to them, kind of opposite of patent leather shine, if you will.
As you can see from the photos, this is not a “Rock Solid manicure, ding free and somehow I’m missing the patent leather shine. I give this kit 0/5 it was that bad.

I have seen these every where I go, the drug stores of course but also the grocery store carries them. They have them in a 2 pack for $6.99 at the Canned Food Outlet. I had thought about using these on my Mom because she really does not like me doing her nails once a week. Her nails grow really fast and I thought this might be something she would like and maybe it would last longer, but I could not in all good conscience do that. I think these are a complete and utter fail.

I haven’t looked yet to see what is next for #76 but I know it will be better than this mess. I wonder how long it’s going to take for me to remove this gel perfect manicure?

πŸ’… As always, thanks for stopping by!

I see these and I’ve been tempted to try them, but I’m so glad that I haven’t!


Too bad about this Judi.Hope it doesn’t take too long to remove or damage your nails.I thought your Mom liked to have her nails done?


She likes when they are all done and pretty but she hates having to sit at the table so I can do them. I started doing them with her in her chair but it kills my back that way but that’s how we’ll do them for now. She says it hurts when I clip her nails? I asked her does it hurt when your hair gets cut? She didn’t get it, but I just keep telling myself she had a stroke she doesn’t know what shes saying half the time. I got it all off and they are fine, I have naked nails right now, only nail envy in them! Thnks Linda! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
