Dazzle Dry: Your Nails' New Best Friend

Check out this 4-step nail system that gives you the salon look without the price tag or the chemicals!

October 24th, 2022

If you know me well, you know that I love a great manicure. I attribute it to talking with my hands. My color of choice is a super opaque white, but if I’m visiting New York, I’ll pick the latest nail design from Paintbox. Sadly, I lack a steady hand, so I usually opt for a trip to my go-to-spot with my favorite manicurist.

Unfortunately, ongoing gel polish can often do a number on your nails leaving them yellow, dry and brittle. I usually give my nails a rest (and my wallet) for a few weeks in between treatments.

Is there something you can do in between nail salon treatments that will give you that polished look at home? You bet! It’s called Dazzle Dry.

Dazzle Dry was created by Dr. Vivian Valenty, a Filipino Bio-Organic Chemist, more than 14 years ago. The system is formulated with a ground-breaking polymer technology that enables the polish to expand and contract with the nail. This means polish stays on longer without peeling or chipping. The non-toxic polish is free of acetone, toluene, formaldehyde, TPHP, nitrocellulose (which causes yellowing of the nail plate and degrades polish), camphor, resin, ethyl tosylamide, phthalates, xylene, MEK and never is tested on animals.

Dr. Valenty, has a vast career in the sciences that includes being a research scientist at the New York State Department of Health and a research and developer at Dupont and General Electric. She has developed a molecule at Dupont to replace phosphates in detergent using carbohydrates and soybeans, as well as developing a patented polymer for GE’s electronics and semiconductors.

This easy to use 4-step system gives you the salon look without the price, time or the harmful chemical residuals. Even for a person who is not great with a nail polish brush (Read: Polish on other parts of my toe and uneven/streaky coats), the number of coats you apply actually mitigates all the mishaps giving you a smooth application. The best part - it dries in under five minutes without the use of fans or lights. It is a long-lasting polish – with a manicure lasting up to 14 days and a pedicure lasting up to 30 days.

The 4-step Nail System starts with Nail Prep, a Base Coat, your choice of Lacquer (150 colors available!) and finishes with a top coat which comes in high gloss or matte finish. The polish can be removed with any nail polish remover, yet I love Remove Non- Acetone – Lacquer Remover. Enhanced with Spearmint and Eucalyptus essential oils the Lacquer Remover helps to moisturize nails and cuticles and as an extra bonus, it smells fantastic!

Give it a go and dazzle yourself with perfect polish every time with Dazzle Dry.
