Dazzle Dry Evening Song, Stolen Kiss and Mythic Teal...

I was recently given the opportunity to try a few Dazzle Dry lacquers and the Nail Polish System that is meant to go with them. I was intrigued when I learned that not only are they Big 4 Free meaning they contain no Formaldehyde, Toluene, Phthalate and Camphor, which I personally choose to avoid, but they also contain no nitrocellulose which is said to cause the yellowing of the nails. To be honest, I don't know much about what it is in nail polish that causes yellowing, but I'm more than willing to try ones that make an effort to prevent it. These polishes are also vegan and cruelty free...


Before I get to the swatches, I want to start out by showing you the Dazzle Dry Quick-Dry Nail Polish System. The polishes on their own dry very quickly to a satiny finish. They are quite brittle and chip easily if not worn with a top coat to seal them in. The top coat gives them a great shine and significantly extends their durability.  I used the system which includes nail prep, base coat and top coat with all three of these lacquers and I was quite impressed at how well and how quickly it all worked. Definitely lived up to their promise...

Nail Prep - Cleans the nail and removes oils to prepare it for the base coat. The main ingredient here is the same as rubbing alcohol and that was apparent by first whiff without even looking at ingredients.
Base Coat - This quickly dries to a nice satin finish. It is not meant to be worn alone and needs to be followed in the very least a top coat. As I quickly learned, it can get cloudy or thicken when exposed to cold temperatures (Yay Seattle!) and simply needs to be rewarmed to return to normal consistency.
Top Coat - Dries quickly as promised with a nice high gloss shine. I really couldn't ask for much more of a top coat. Consistency is similar to Seche Vite and at least with the Dazzle Dry lacquers there was no shrinkage.



Evening Song
A deep midnight blue with a teal shimmer. This is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I just love dark blues such as this and the teal shimmer won me over. I used two coats for full opacity. The formula is nice and smooth, easy to apply. It dries very quickly to a satin/matte finish. Swatches are with a top coat...

A dusty dark teal cream. It has a smooth formula that applies easily. Two coats provide full coverage as seen below. It dries quickly to a matte finish.
