Posting my quick guide to gel nails again for those who missed it. I’ve had some questions lately about it.
What do you guys know about bio sculpt gel nails using forms?
I’d like to learn how to do it but just wondering how strong they are/ how well they hold up etc..
Any information would be appreciated.
Yep, these are mine. Nothing to do with either of those people.
I VERY rarely post negative reviews about things because i do so much research and read so many reviews on a product before i buy.
I also usually will use a product consistently or try and find a different use for it before totally giving up.
That being said, i just did not like Nutra Nail Gel Perfect.
It comes with 3 bottles; the activator, color and brush cleaner.
You apply it in the following order: activator>color>activator>color>activator
You need to apply the color while the activator is still wet so they advise doing one hand at a time (this is how i do my UV gel nails too). The activator feels just like fast-drying super glue so be careful not to get any on your skin because its not so easy to get off as UV gel that usually just peels off when you get your hands wet.
The finish is more like regular polish, you don’t get that slightly thicker look that UV polish brings that i actually quite like but if you don’t like how thick gels can sometimes appear then this might be something you’d like to try.
My real problem comes with the fact it had chipped on most nails by the end of the day. My nails are currently very short so there isn’t much flex happening in daily tasks and they don’t take as much wear and tear as longer nails might because they’re not being stubbed or used to pick at things.
The polish finish is very dry, crunch and flaky. Where as gel is very flexible and moves with your nails, this stuff certainly does not.
If you wanted a nail color just for the evening that you didn’t want to wait to dry (we all know it can take FOREVER for some regular polishes) then this might be the thing for you but if you want it to last up to 3 weeks like gels i think you’ll be really disappointed.
Like always, if theres something i’m doing/not doing thats making this product suck then please share your experiences?
So I’ve tried sephora and CND brand gel colors but I want some new ones… Glitter ones too maybe.
Have any of you tried any other brands?
Have any of you had bio sculpture nails?
Or better yet have any of you actually done them?
I’m wondering how they compare to acrylics in terms of doing them and also how well they last/lift etc Can they be used with tips or are they more like gels?
