dermelectI always love experimenting with nail polish brands that I’ve never tried before. Though I’m an essie and OPI lover, there’s always room in my helmer…(I mean heart) for smaller, less well known brands.

Dermelect Cosmeceuticals is a family-owned cosmetics company that’s mission is to provide real solutions for women experiencing changes in her appearance. I love that their website actually allows you to SHOP BY CONCERN (e.g. anti-aging skin care, anti-aging nail care, skin solutions & total body). How cool is that? One of the company’s innovations is ‘ME’ – peptide-infused anti-aging color treatment nail lacquers.

‘ME’- The 1st Peptide Infused, Anti-Aging Color Treatment Lacquers

  • strengthens weak, brittle nails
  • restores flexibility
  • helps resist chipping and splitting
  • superior extended wear
  • water and detergent resistant
  • UV protected
  • DBP, Toluene & Formaldehyde free
  • cruelty free (no animal testing, ever!)

I’ve swatched the new HOLIDAY set of nail lacquers that are available now as a set of 4 for $29 USD, directly from the Dermelect website.

While this polish looks more white, rather than gold in the bottle, once applied in 2 coats you’re met with a beautiful golden holiday sparkle. I applied 2 coats to achieve full opacity.black nails, black nail polish, hold me sparkled midnight noir, black glitter polish, black glitter nails, dermelect cosmeceuticals, dermelect nail polish, winter nail polish, peptide infused nail polish

What a perfect christmas green. This polish has a glossy satin finish to it and applies like a dream.dermelect cosmeceuticals, dermelect nail polish, winter nail polish, peptide infused nail polish, maroon nails, kiss me velvet crimson

A lush, sultry burgundy, this polish would look great with a cashmere sweater and your fave pair of jeans. Another satin glossy finish, this polish is actually a one-coater!

The Verdict?

Definitely an interesting concept of infusing nail polish with peptides to help with the anti-aging process of nails. I absolutely loved OPI Nail Envy Coloured Polishes, and these nail polishes seem to have a similar concept, but come in WAY more colours than OPI!

Until next time,

nail that accent
