dazzle dry...quick-dry nail polish system

We love getting manis and pedis, but rarely do we have the time to head out for either one.

Although, believe us when we tell you that a nice foot massage in a massaging chair would be quite excellent right now.

Well...the products here may not come with a massaging chair, but they do come with the promise of a quick drying manicure in minutes.

Dazzle Dry Nail System Kit ($54) comes with a one 1oz. Nail Prep and one 0.5oz. Base Coat for natural nails. You also get one 0.5oz. Dazzle Dry quick drying Top Coat and three 0.5oz. Nail Lacquers of your choice. And they have some pretty cute shades to choose from.

They are all formaldehyde free, toluene free, nitrocellulose free, and phthalate free, as well.

We're still in the process of testing them, but we have to say that the couple of times we did, the lacquers dried pretty quickly...faster than other quick dry top coats we've tried in the past.

Not too shabby.

If the price has you reeling a little, we is a splurge....consider this, both of us recently got the worst mani and pedis ever in the history of manis and pedis.


Christine's even left her in mid-pedi to take a phone call...what is it with people taking phone calls in the middle of a service? I mean, understandable if there is an emergency, but...

And they jacked up the price without letting us know until the end!


How much did it cost?

Well...including tip...over $70! And it was horrible. I mean, for that price we could have gone to a much nicer place and drank like cucumber water or something like that.

At least if we bought this, we could have gotten a lot more use for the money...just saying.

Okay...rant over...moving on.

Recently, VB Cosmetics’ own Dr. Vivian Valenty, was a guest on TV3 Good Morning Arizona Sunday.

She and host Tess Rafols discussed and displayed the VB Cosmetics brands including Dazzle Dry (nail polish system), Be Silky (Callus Spray) & Abrione (skin care).

That's her cute little self on the left in the pic.

In case you think that Dr. Vivian is like a doctor of philosophy or something like that, she's taught organic chemistry and biochemistry at Skidmore College.

For real.

This was taken from the About section on the site...

Abrioné is the result of thirteen years of product development, testing and market research. It embodies vision, integrity, out of the box thinking, molecular engineering, chemistry, creativity, persistence and balance.

Neither one of us knows what the heck molecular engineering is...but it sounds really scientific and can probably only be understood by really smart people.

Just stating our opinion.

Do yourself a favor and head on over to They have some amazing items besides nail yummy scrubs and lotions....and that callus spray that we'll be reviewing soon. Also, don't forget to check out, they continue to have what's new in beauty products.

With love (always),
Jennifer and Christine

What other quick dry top coats have you tried?

I've used the most popular ones SV and Poshe but recently I changed over to Out the Door and I am in quick dry heaven!
I get it at Sally's.

Hi Tink!

Wow...thanks! I never thought to try Sally's. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the tip.
I've tried the one with the dropper, I think it was from Nail Tek or something like that...the bottle is crammed in my closet downstairs right I'm not sure if that was the company.
I've also tried the SV and that one was meh...what was your experience with it?

Quick dry nailpollish is a lifesaver!

SV was ok for me but it caused major polish shrinking. It also would grab my body oil and created this oily film on top of my nails. Not pretty when you wear cremes.
