A Closer Look at DND Nail Polish

A Closer Look at DND Nail Polish

Daisy DND, founded in 2011, is one of the best selling polish brands, and it’s not hard to see why. Fusing essential vitamins with their gel polish ensures that your nails not only look great with polish on, but also once it’s removed. Perfect for both salon use, and the home DIYer, I’m going to put their most popular polishes through my rigorous testing processes – which include no-glove-gardening, washing-up-in-hot-water and tinkering-under-the-SUV-hood.

1) DND Gel & Matching Polish Set – 501 Haven Angel

What Makes it Great

Haven Angel is a rich, luxurious plum with a gentle warming shimmer, just perfect for this season’s parties. The set includes a bottle of gel and one of regular polish, which is a great idea for versatility and choice. When this started to peel on day 20, underneath, my nails looked and felt healthy

Where it Could be Improved

I had to apply two coats to achieve the even, smooth finish I wanted.

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

DND have produced a great two-bottle set. The color is gorgeous - shimmery plum, with hints of Fall and cosy nights in front of the fire. It would make an ideal gift for any nail art fan.

2) Daisy DND Matte Top Gel – free pot of glitter

What Makes it Great

The matte look is bang on trend this season, and this polish from Daisy DND is perfect over any gel color, turning even the highest gloss into an edgy, unusual matte finish. It performed well in my tests, too, lasting 18 days before I noticed the first edge lifting. Included with this is a free gift of StinaFace Glitter. Designed for cheeks, hair, décolletage – in fact, anywhere you want to highlight, I needed no excuse to scatter this all over!

Where it Could be Improved

The polish has rather a strong odor, but opening the windows soon cleared it up.

The Final Verdict

For this season’s matte manicure, DND’s top coat is perfect, producing a quick drying, hard wearing finish. Surely a must-have in any mani kit.

3) DND Base and Top Coat Set

What Makes it Great

Producing a decent base for any gel polish to adhere to, coupled with a high gloss, durable top coat, this set works really well. Any polish or nail art design is well protected, and these coats from DND survived all of my tests, not lifting at all until day 19.

Where it Could be Improved

Both of these bottles had quite a noticeable smell; however, this is a small price to pay for their quality, in my opinion.

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

Every manicurist needs a base and top coat combo they can rely on, and this set from DND is hard wearing, works well with any brand of polish, and produces an awesomely deep high gloss finish.
