Deborah Lippmann Fast Girls Base Coat

Deborah Lippmann Fast Girls Base Coat, $20 at Nordstrom

I am new to using base coats but this one I love! It’s so pricy but nothing I’ve used in the last year or so has dried faster or helped protect my nails more. I wanted to start using a base coat regularly to help with nail discoloration. I love deep nail shades so my nails suffered so much due to the deep blues, greens, and blacks that I regularly use. And lets not forget the hot pinks and bright oranges I like to throw on sometimes.

I’ve tried a few base coats since the beginning of the year but I notice the best results with this one. Cue the sad violin music because it’s $20 a bottle. My nails really haven’t shown any color changes since using Fast Girls for the last few months. When I don’t have polish on they look like I don’t ever wear any harsh colors and thats a first. In the past I kept my nails polished to hide the fact that they were not the best looking things when they are bare. Not anymore!

From Nordstrom’s website:

Fast Girls Instant Base Coat is a super fast-dry base coat that applies effortlessly to ensure easier, even color application. Remember, your base coat is a must-have for the perfect mani because this treatment step hydrates nails, prevents brittleness and yellowing, creates a flawless canvas for color and allows for increased wear.

The new fluid formula is completely transparent and dries in a flash, so there are no excuses for skipping this important step or not allowing the solvents to fully evaporate. The optimized balance of nail-friendly ingredients in Fast Girls prevent staining, yellowing and limit water penetration to reduce splitting for beautiful nails – with or without lacquer.

If you are interested in checking out Fast Girls and you need additional manicure stuff consider the Deborah Lippmann Fast Track 5 Piece Manicure set. It’s available at Nordstrom also and for $40 you get Fast Girls and a lot more from Deborah Lippmann to try out.

    You should also try the DEBORAH LIPPMANN “Addicted To Speed Top Coat”. My all time favorite top coat used to be “seche vite top coat” until I found the deborah lippmann one. This top coat is amazing, it dries almost as fast as my seche vite minus the shrinkage. But what I like the most is the unbelievable shine you get with this on!! (the only issue I had at the begining was that “it bubbles” if you don’t put enough pressure when you apply it, but once I figure that out no more bubbles). I also tried the NYC Grand Central Station, it doesn’t shine as much as the Deborah lippmann one. You can read reviews at Sephora.
