Dear Diary,
I just got a new product from Dermelect to try called ME and I am so excited!  Dermelect is a cosmeceuticals company, which means there is a lot of science behind their products.  From skin care to nail care, every product I have tried from them has worked.  I love all of the Dermelect products I have tried, especially their Launchpad - it truly changed my nails.  Now Dermelect is launch its own line of color polish, called "Me."  This new line of lacquers from Dermelect sounds very promising…  I am going to “give up” other polish brands for as long as I can to see if I can see a difference in the strength of my nails!  Wish me luck!!!
"The first coat instantly bonds to the nail, while the second fuses with the base coat to create a flexible web of color that resists chipping and improves brittleness (patent-pending technology). The ME colors combine fast drying, high shine, and a healthy ‘green’ dose of vitamins, peptides, and moisture, offering a colorful solution to the contemporary woman’s beauty concern—aging hands and nails. For best results, two coats are recommended."

Dear Diary,
I am really glad I decided to go steady with Dermelect for awhile... I only cheated with another brand once in three weeks!  I tried these polishes so many ways - with a basecoat, without a basecoat, with a topcoat, without a top coat.  I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
My first attempt was just the polish - no basecoat and no topcoat.  That didn’t go to well, it smudged easily and the smooth surface didn’t last.  Next I tried it without a basecoat.  I used the pretty sky blue color called Above It.  Even though I didn’t use a basecoat, my uneven nail beds disappeared under the polish, I used three coats and it was gorgeous!  I loved it so much I posted it on Instagram:
The polish lasted so well without a basecoat, I couldn’t believe it!  I wore it for 4 days strait and it never chipped!
These polishes self-level like no other polishes I have ever seen.  Even if you have to go back over a spot, which normally causes a ridge of polish, it still self-levels!  It must have something to do with how the polish bonds to itself.  It’s truly amazing! 
Let me tell you, in the middle of wear testing these polishes I took a break and used another brand.  I am not going to name names, but the formula of that “other” polish reminded me of just how freakin’ awesome ME is!
Diary, I can’t wait until tomorrow when I get to show you pictures off all the shades!
Until then!
