Product Review:

Since summer is officially here, manicures and pedicures are going to be in high gear. I found this the perfect opportunity to try out a purchase I made from one of last year’s Breakthrough Brands, Liberty Republic.

Vegan and cruelty free there are seven shades of Spellbound Nail Lacquer to choose from housed in a sleek sophisticated squared bottle that gives it a very different look when comparing to other bottles on the shelf. Belladonna just whispered to me, “Take me home…” with its nude pink appearance. Grabbing my wallet I was a little shocked when $14 was the total. But after doing some research I can now see why the retail price is set where it is. Plus the fact this is a private company needs to be taken into consideration when clenching your wallet. Formulas without formaldehyde and other harmful chemicals tend to be on the higher side of the spectrum. Also these lacquers make claims to last up to two weeks which is amazing considering it is not a gel based formula that requires UV setting. My results are within total satisfaction considering I had only one chip on day five of wearing this lacquer without the addition of a top coat. The consistency and quality of this lacquer is comparable to other higher end brands which I have used in home and at the nail salons which have never damaged my nails. Two coats of this applied to the nails and it is exactly a true match when looking at the bottle. Fast drying, no creasing, or smudging, and last but not least… no annoying BUBBLES!

When it comes to looking at what Liberty Republic has to offer with its Nail Lacquer line I am truly Spellbound and will be repurchasing in the future. Now if only a magic wand could be waved and cast a spell on my piggy bank I’d be set.
