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.
