Not to long ago I was researching what makes a nail polish both vegan friendly and environmentally friendly. I try to be environmentally conscious, so it was just a matter of time before I started thinking of whether nail polish could be environmentally friendly. I know there are a lot of polish lines that are Vegan friendly, but I wanted more information. I contacted Dazzle Dry for some information. They sent me some information on the company and some product for review.
According to the documents they sent me, their polish is not just 3 free, but also nitrocellulose free and an added UV protective screening. They claim their top coat drying time is 75% faster than their competitors. This I had to see. I can’t imagine something faster than Seche Vite or Nubar Diamont. I couldn’t wait to try this one out!
Dazzle Dry sent me This three piece nail system which retails for $28.00.
Here is what you find inside the box. Nail Prep, which prepares your nail bed for perfect polish adhesion. As an added bonus, it strengthens your natural nails with calcium, vitamin B5 & hydrolyzed protein, The next item in the kit is the base coat. This is formulated specifically for natural nails so that your polish lasts longer. The last item in the kit is the Top Coat. Dazzle Dry claims that this top coat is non yellowing, will stay so shiny you will not need touch ups and will dry so fast that they dare you to dig into your purse 5 minutes after applying the polish. Really? You’ll have to read below to see if it worked! (you know I had to try!)
Dazzle Dry also sent me three polishes from their new Spring line. These colors are all neutrals. These polishes retail for $9 per bottle.
From Left to Right: Misty Moon, Touch of Love & Fascination.
Now on to the manicures….
First up I tried Misty Moon. This is a white with just a touch of color. It looks like perhaps there is a little brown in it to give it that misty look. I have been looking for a white that won’t look like white out on my fingers, I think I may have found it! I have to say I tried the Dazzle Dry polishes without the prep & base coat and because it dries so fast, application was a bit difficult. I then tried again with the whole system and it was much easier to apply. But even with the learning curve in using this polish, it was completely opaque in 2 coats. Another amazing thing I found was that this polish seemed to level itself out. It had almost a rubber look & texture to it. These shots are pre-cleanup and without a top coat. I love, love, love Misty Moon. This is a white I think I can pull off! My kids love this white too, two of them have already grabbed this system and used this color with it.
Here it is with the top coat. Beautiful!
Before removing this color I ran my hand pretty hard across my daughters shirt nail side down. (Hey I didn’t want to risk ruining my own shirt!) It was about 3 minutes after putting on the top coat. These pictures are AFTER I did that! Of course I immediately grabbed my purse and rummaged through it and again these pictures are AFTER I did that. Dazzle Dry truly is the fastest drying top coat I have ever used in my life! This stuff in unbelievable!
Well unfortunately I forgot to take pictures 5 days later when I changed my polish – but it wore perfectly. It looked like I had just applied it!
