It’s been quite a while since I have posted a
The time has come to introduce you to
I was on vacation last summer and went to a lovely spa for a manicure. This new-to-me nail system is now my #1 and only nail product I use.
It is FABULOUS
I have dry skin which translates to dry nails and cuticles. Polish just never, ever lasts more than about five days…at best. It chips so easily no matter what kind of base, brand of polish, or top coat I use. And no, in case you ask, I cannot use any kind of synthetic i.e. acrylic nails as I am allergic to them.
It was a never ending problem.
This is amazing stuff! There is an entire protocol and sequence to using this.
1. First, on dry, clean nails you rub on, with cotton pad, the Nail Prep.
2. Brush on a generous coat of Base. Be sure to, as they instruct, “encapsulate” the nail by brushing the end/edge of each nail.
3. Allow this to dry THOROUGHLY.
4. Brush on two coats of polish: the first one thinly and the second generously.
5. Brush on a generous top coat.
It will be totally dry in FIVE minutes! I guarantee. And it is rock hard.
But the best part is how long it lasts. I have worn polish for up to 10 days and yes, it begins to look “old” and scraggly but the polish has not chipped or peeled. I am continually amazed!
I have used their colors but I also use my own Essie colors. It doesn’t seem to make a difference. However, their line does have a really good color selection.
Their site is currently being updated to show salons around the country that use this system: so check back for the update…but there are not many. So my advice is to buy a starter kit for yourself and either do it yourself or take to your local manicure person to use on your nails. I actually do both but now my “home manicure” lasts just about as long as the salon.
Do you know Dazzle Dry? Have you ever used it? We would all love to know your experience!
I just ordered the Dazzle Dry. There was a 20% off coupon for first time buyers and free shipping. Can’t beat that! and I already have my Essie color of choice. Thanks Libby.
Julie: Glad you got that coupon! Can’t wait to see and hear how it works out…
LOOKS GREAT. I HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS KEEPING NAIL POLISH ON. WISH IT WAS AVAILABLE IN THE UK. AMAZON HAS IT LISTED BUT IT SEEMS TO BE UNAVAILABLE. CAN’T SEEM TO FIND IT ANYWHERE ELSE.
Good to know. I have also had issues with allergies but I received a Melodiesusie LED/UV nail lamp that I can use with any nail gel nail polishes such as Essie, Sally Hansen etc. I have had good luck with that as well.
Pamela: Oh my goodness, no, I cannot possibly use a UV lamp! I break out all over my hands and they itch terribly for 3 days. No, I found that out the hard way! Even now, I have to cover most of my hand at the salon just in case. It just came on…never used to have a problem. So this system works so well for me! Nice to hear from you!
Bless you Libby!!! I’m constantly re-polishing my nails.- I’ve been so frustrated.. I still love my Essie colors, so I’m glad for your review. We’re off to warm weather in the Caymans, but when I get back, I’m ordering this!
