Today I have a pretty summer nail color from Duality Cosmetics
, the brand is Nail Pak and the color is "Ellen".
Never heard of Nail-Pak? Well let me jog your memory, it was seen on the TV show "Shark Tank", and the owner received offers from 2 investors, and it's actually pretty cool! Here's how it works...
You start with an old manicure that NEEDS TO GO!
( I know it looks pretty perfect, but it was time for a change) :)
Grab your chosen Nail Pak color, I have "Ellen", a pretty Tiffany colored creme with slight shimmer.
Unscrew the polish from the plastic bottom..
The first thing you see, is super cute, polka dotted nail file :) But wait there is more...
Lift up the small black tab (Like a lid) and pull it off...
The file is on once side and can be used to file your nails :) Smart! Plus inside there are pads with pre-moistened remover inside...
The pads were thin, but you could grab more than one layer, if you needed to remove something really stubborn. Each pad is pre-moistened with non-acetone nail polish remover :)
There were enough pads to remove my old manicure on both hands and I still had a lot to spare There are 40 pads per container. (I can verify this, I counted). Nice! :)
And if you have pads left over just replace the seal and the remaining pads stay moist (I used the remaining pads the next day and they were just as moist as when I first opened them)...getting better!
And now for the actual color?
3 coats, no base coat, no top coat.
I think this all in one nail combo may strike some of you as silly, but it actually is very cool for several reasons.
1. The polish bottle size is .80n fl. oz., .30 fl. oz more than your standard OPI bottle.
2. Non-acetone nail polish remover with pads, all in one location that can be reused over and over once you re-apply the file lid.
3. The nail file, that is comfortable and rough enough to use on your nails, and can be used to even out the roughest edge.
4. "Soft Touch" brush handle, is comfortable and make application easier.
5. The polish is "3 Free", and does not have the top 3 chemical found in nail polish. It is chip resistant, and salon strength.
And long after the remover pads are gone, you will always have the file and polish to use over, and over again. The polish applied nicely, but still needed 3 coats to get some pesky bald spots, but dried to a smooth shine.
If I had to do my manicure on the go, I would definitely use this product. These are perfect for birthday parties as party favors, or bachelorette and wedding showers favors, especially if the brides name can be found among the names in the polish collection.
Check out their site Duality Cosmetics for all their colors and collections, each Nail Pak is $20.
