Beauty Review: Dazzle Dry System

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to

I was given the opportunity to test drive the Dazzle Dry’s Quick Dry Nail System kit. If you aren’t familiar with this brand, here are some quick tidbits.

  • The supreme 4-step system for natural nail manicures that air-dries THOROUGHLY in a dazzling 5-10 minutes (um, it’s actually less than that).
  • Free of formaldehyde, nitrocellulose, toluene and phthalate.
  • Formulated for natural nails to keep polish lasting longer (not recommended for use on acrylic and artificial nails).
  • Lacquers contain a UV screen for color protection.

If you purchase the kit, you will get all of this…

Dazzle Dry Nail Prep
Base Coat
Color Lacquers (2)
Top Coat

In my video review, I apply each of the products and show just how quickly the products dry. I even run my finger over water. This stuff is serious!!

Dazzle Dry Nail System Kit from Clumps of Mascara on Vimeo.

It works!! No….I mean, it really works. My nails are ready to go in 2 minutes or less. The entire kit retails for $54 which is a little steep for nail products, in general. I am “into” my nails more than the average person so this is one investment that I can justify indulging in.

Do you have to use Dazzle Dry polishes with the base and top coat?
Actually, you don’t. I’ve used the Nail prep and both the base and top coats with several other brands and it worked perfectly. However, using THEIR color polishes ensures that the polish dries almost instantaneously. Which is to be expected.

Here’s my NOTD (nail of the day) using Dazzle Dry’s Scarlet Desire. I used the entire system and only did two coats of Scarlet Desire.

How gorgeous is that color? I love this system and highly recommend it! Check out the Dazzle Dry System and other cool thangs at

  • PBW

    Love the video. You’re such a cutie!

    I also love beauty products that come in kits. Definitely going to try this one!!!

  • Product Junkie Diva

    The color does look very nice. I have never tried this system. I use that sally hansen shea butter oil and that dries my nails pretty quickly. It’s about 5-6 bucks but it works well.
    You are certianly devoted to your nails. :-)

    too bad i don’t like the colors because the concept is great. I am very picky when it comes to nail polish color :(

  • Katee

    Cute video! You are so adorable. I have never heard of this stuff! I will definitely look into it.

  • The Pretty Brown Girl

    I love this concept. I may give it a try, even though I’m not loving those colors. Thanks again for the tips B! :)

  • rmcandlelight

    Can you purchase the top coat only? I guess I better go check out the website:)

  • Brown Girl Gumbo

    I’m not a DIY nail kinda girl. I just get so frustrated when it doesn’t come out right! I always smear or smudge them. I’m in need of a manicure as I’m typing this comment! lol

    Interesting content.

    Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

    However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.
