Apply a coat of Dazzle Dry base coat. The bottle says "for natural nails", so I would assume that if you are wearing acrylics that this step isn't necessary, but I'm not for sure. Make sure that this is applied over all of the nail bed. Allow 1-2 minutes for this to dry before continuing to the next step..5oz $12.50
Select your fast drying nail color and paint your nails. I used two coats of High Velocity Red. This is a very nice berry red color with a little bit of shimmer. I would almost say it has a sort of pink tint to it. This nail polish applied really, really well! I was very impressed. I wasn't really expecting much of this nail polish as far as application goes, since the theme behind this is the drying time. The pictures I am posting below of the finished product is with out any clean up! That is how well this applied. Two thumbs up Dazzle Dry for your nail polish consistency and application :) I allowed this to dry maybe a minute before going on to the last step.
On Dazzle Dry's website, they have 37 different colors to choose from. I saw a color to fit everyone! There were work appropriate colors, as well as the regular pinks and reds, but there is also a baby blue, a bright neon orange, dark purples, jade green - just to name a few.
The last step is to apply the top coat. The package inserts says that your nails will be dry to the touch in 1 minute - yes 1 minute! And that in 5 minutes you can tap on your nails. It does caution waiting 5-10 minutes before digging through your purse. After painting all my nails, I went immediately back to the first nail I painted and lightly touched it. It was dry! Now of course, I didn't push really hard or anything, but it was dry to the touch. This is literally the fastest drying top coat I have ever used people :) When I first heard about Seche and Poshe and tried them out, I was absolutely amazed, well this has amazed me again. This out dried Poshe and Seche. I even waited about 5 minutes and then dug into a bag that I keep my camera in, and no mess ups occured on my nails. Now of course, the nail polish I used was a fast drying nail polish, which I am sure aided in all of this. I will have to try this out with maybe one of my regular nail polishes and see if the results are the same.
That's all there was to it. This manicure was completed and dry to the touch in about 10-12 minutes, not bad Ladies, not bad. On to the finished manicure pics:
***I didn't remove all the remaining green nail polish, so there were a few green stains along my cuticles. please ignore this:)
