Perfectly Polished Tips 148 - Dazzle Dry Nail System

Dazzle Dry 3 Piece Nail System is made up of a nail prepping solution, a base coat, and a top coat. It claims to dry your nails completely in 5 minutes. That is if you use their brand of polish as well. I tried it out and surprisingly it lived up to it's claims which I find to be quite rare.

Step One is to use the Nail Prep which is pretty much made up of isopropyl alcohol. It is also suppose to moisturize nails along with providing B5, calcium, and protein. It's not like Zoya's Remove, it's not a nail polish remover.

Step Two is the base coat for natural nails. It is not intended to be used on fakes of any type. It dries very quickly, by the time I finished my second hand the first was completely dry.

Step Three is to use Dazzle Dry polish. I used Day Dreaming. I thought this color looked gorgeous in the bottle. On my nail it was mauve w/ subtle silver shimmer. I'm not a mauve lover, I wore it for one whole day before taking it off. The formula was amazingly smooth and one coat covered my nail completely. I did two because it's a habit. I loved the brush too, the handle was a little too long but the brush was small and worked well on my tiny nail beds. It dried just as quickly as the base coat did which was nice. The only thing I didn't like was that it made the vertical ridges I have in my nails stand out a lot. I think it was the frost finish of the polish.

Step Four is to apply Dazzle Dry top coat. The consistency is not thick like most other fast drying top coats, it spreads well though. It's so glossy, I thought Lippmann's Addicted to Speed was shiny but I think Dazzle Dry beats it. My manicure was dry in minutes, I didn't time it but I checked shortly after finishing up my second hand and it was good to go.

I don't have photos because while I liked the kit I wasn't fond of the polish color. I also cannot post about the wear time because I took off the manicure after one day. I checked the website out though and they have some great colors. I want to order some in the near future. If/When I do I will come back to this and report on the wear.

Dazzle Dry products can be found at DazzleDry.com, the polish retails for $9 and the 3 Piece Kit is $28. The products are all B3F and vegan!

Even though the kit says the fast drying time only works with Dazzle Dry's polish I was curious as to how well it would work with other brands. I tryed it with a Barielle polish and while my nails weren't dry completely in 5 minutes, around the 15 minute mark I was good to go. I don't know if I would stop using my Addicted to Speed for the Dazzle Dry though.
