ND Lacquers Basics

**The products in this post were provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

I have been waiting to be able to do this post for so long. I have been testing some wonderful products from ND Lacquers, and it's been hard to keep my mouth shut. The products are her Basics Line. A set of cuticle oil, base coat, top coat, as well as a peel off base coat. These items will be released on Sunday, August 31st (8/31) so you've got time to put money aside. You're going to want to try all four of these!



Left to right: Cuticle Oil, Base Coat, Top Coat, Peel off Base Coat

First up is the cuticle oil. I used this religiously for three weeks, and it has helped tremendously. I applied it daily and after doing a manicure. Kept my cuticle hydrated and it smells wonderful! It rubbed in easily and didn't take long to soak into my skin. Didn't leave oily residue or anything. 

Cuticle Oil
$2.50 (5 mL)
$7.50 (13 mL)

Next up is the Peel off Base Coat. I tested it with one, two, and three coats. It worked best with three coats. Shown is three coats immediately after the third coat was applied. (I let the previous 2 coats completely dry before applying the next.)

Peel Off Base Coat
$5.50 (13 mL)


Shown below is the three coats of the Peel Off Base Coat after completely drying.



Then I applied two coats of one of the provided polishes as well as the Top Coat. The top coat was completely dry and hard in 4 minutes flat. I tested this several times. It's a beautiful, glossy, top coat with an incredible dry time. The top coat has a perfect formula with a wonderful consistency that isn't very thick or thin.

Top Coat
$2.50 (5 mL)
$7.50 (13 mL)



When I was ready to remove this mani that I did using the Peel Off Base Coat, I took my cuticle pusher gently pushed the polish back the polish. I started near my cuticles, and just gently nudged it, then it peeled off completely. It was super easy to use. 



The regular Base Coat has a milky color to it, but isn't as white as the Peel Off Base Coat. I have fallen in love with this Base Coat. So smooth, and I've had zero staining with polishes since I've started using it. Shown below is one coat of Base Coat.

$2.50 (5 mL)

Shown below is a comparison of top coats to show how glossy ND Lacquers' Top Coat is. Two fingers have the Base Coat on them, one has Glisten & Glow's HK Girl, and another has SuperChic Lacquer's upcoming Marvel top coat.



Do you see a difference? Keep reading to see which is on what finger!



What do you all think? Do these look like products you'd want to try? I love them and am going to continue to use them. If you'd like to have your own set of these, they will be available on Sunday, August 31st!

Interesting! I've never tried a peel off base before. I nearly bought the OPI one the other day, but it was really expensive. Polishes tend to be more expensive over here :-|
