Happy Friday! Today I am excited to review two nail polishes from a new-to-me brand. Dermelect Cosmeceuticals is a brand designed to allow its users to express their individuality. The Spring 2016 nail polish collection is called the ‘ME’ Outburst Collection, and includes four polishes in vibrant shades. The brand curated this based on Outburst, meaning each shade commands attention and lets you stand out. I received Explosive and Impromptu to review for you today.
Dermelect Cosmeceuticals is very unique, and I wanted to share a bit more about the polishes with you before we jump into individual reviews. The formula is designed to be applied in two coats. The first coat bonds to the nail, and the second fuses with the base to create a finish that resists chipping and improves brittleness. There is a key ingredient of peptide-hydrolyzed keratin protein that is extracted from New Zealand’s sheep’s wool to help strengthen the nails. This is definitely not a vegan product, but the brand is cruelty free.
The first polish I tried is Explosive, a bright neon coral polish with a creme finish. Explosive has a really great formula. It applies a bit patchy, but dries to a flawless finish. I did apply two coats, and am really pleased with the result. This bright shade is perfect for spring and summer, and I definitely will be wearing it a lot in the coming months. I highly recommend Explosive if you’re looking for a coral!
Next up is Impromptu, a pale pink polish with silver and pink shimmer. Impromptu also has a really good formula. I didn’t expect the shimmer to be as strong as it is on the nails because it looks more subdued in the bottle. Impromptu reminds me of a ballerina because it’s such a classically feminine shade. This is a perfect transition shade from winter to spring, and I think it would make a nice pedicure color as well.
All in all, I’m really liking the nail polishes from Dermelect Cosmeceuticals. This is a higher end brand, with the polishes costing $14 each or $29 for the entire 4-piece Spring set. You can purchase these polishes direct from the brand’s website HERE. Individual shades are also available on Ulta’s website HERE for a discounted price of $12 each. Please let me know in the comments if you’ve ever tried any Dermelect Cosmececuticals polishes, or if you plan to give them a try!
