I’m excited to bring Dermelect to you today! I’ve heard rave reviews about their treatments, so when I was asked to review, I jumped at the chance.
I have three products here: 4 colors, the Memento Manicure Extender top coat and the Revital-Oil Nail and Cuticle treatment. All of these products promise a 20-minute manicure when used together. First up are the colors:
A Shore Thing (two coats): sheer jelly pink
Dune My Thing (two coats): gray-purple crème
Fant-A-Sea (two coats): peachy orange glass-flecks
Lazy Daze (two coats): buttery yellow crème
Lazy Daze applies fairly well for a yellow crème in two coats. A Shore Thing is the type of color that mimics your own natural color, but better. Dune My Thing is a chic neutral alternative and should do well in professional environments. I’m personally not a fan of Fant-A-Sea’s color, but the formula was decent.
The Memento Manicure Extender top coat is a gel hybrid and cures in natural light rather than using a UV light. Dermelect instructs the user to apply two coats of Dermelect color without a base coat, then layer the top coat. I instead used the top coat over three other manicures, all with various brands and base coats. Let me tell you: this is a great product. It dries very quickly (to the touch in eight minutes!) and lasts through the week aside from tip wear. I also used the cuticle treatment after applying the top coat, but this isn’t needed for the lightning-quick dry time.
I’m not thrilled by the All Decked Out colors, but I’m definitely on board with the Memento Manicure Extender top coat. I’m all about a quick mani nowadays since I spend my non-nail polish hours crocheting.
Say hi to Hobbes! He was a special request from my husband.
