Product Review: Deborah Lippmann Intensive Nail Treatment and Nail Polish

Making jewelries by hand (visit my online store, Kakalina's) has its drawback- I can't have to-die-for nails. Notwithstanding occasional pokes from wires and pliers, and good-for-three-days nail polish, I do enjoy painting my nails. Plus it's the best excuse to rest my hands for one solid hour. Except today.

The Wait Is Over is the name of the quick-drying nail lacquer created by celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann. It is the last step to your usual manicure routine. Packaged with a dropper, you can brush the formula directly on your nail polish or use the former to dry your nails in a flash.

"The Wait Is Over" Intensive Nail Treatment

I used the standard brush over dropper.

In 0.50 fl. oz  / 15 ml 
Immediately after the last coat of nail polish, I brushed this lacquer. Without averseness, I touched my nails and boy, they were dry in an instant! And yes, my fingertips are back to work right away. No more excuses I guess!



Alongside this nail treatment, I also painted my nails with Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air. It has a milky-blue tint adorned with blue and pink glitters. 

Free of formaldehyde, Toluene and Dibutyl Phtalate. Not tested on animals.

In 0.50 fl.oz  / 15ml

In days you want to give your nails a break from bright hues, this polish is for you. The milky texture renders it opaque when applied on nails, and the glitters- they're simply fun to look at.

2 coats of  Glitter in the Air.

Think outside the bottle. You can mix it with your favorite nail color. See what I did....

High-end meets Cheapo! I applied Glitter In the Air on top of a drugstore brand, LA Colors. Who can tell?

On to my Kissmark Analysis:

The Wait Is Over gave me no excuse not to blog right away!


Glitter in the Air nail polish: Color choice is relative. I'm drawn to bright hues as my nails don't look good in clear-opaque finish.

FTC: I got these as gifts.
