While the polish process was not that difficult, the polish wound up drying streaky. The instructions said that it would even out but it never did. The finish was shiny but not overly impressive. Several days later the polish started to chip. I may leave this process to the professionals at the salon.
I was looking for a long-lasting nail polish, something that would be similar to the gel manicure I had done at a salon. Nutra nail's gel perfect was introduced as the first "five-minute gel color manicure," so I was interested. The polish went on fairly easily -- took three coats to cover without streaks. It dried almost immediately -- a real bonus! I actually did dishes shortly after finishing the manicure and there were no smudges! But the nail polish began chipping about three days later -- it didn't last as long as I had hoped. However, because it was so easy to apply and so quick, I will definitely continue to buy this product -- redoing my nails is much quicker with it!
