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!!!
HOW IT WORKS
"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."
· Strengthens weak, brittle nails
· Restores nail flexibility
· Helps nails resist chipping and splitting
· Provides long-lasting, high shine and bold color
· Water and detergent resistant
· Protects against UV rays
· DBP, Toulene, Formaldehyde, and cruelty FREE (no animal testing)

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!
