Q: What is the dry time after using Defy & Inspire base coat, the nail lacquer and the top coat? I want to put on tennis shoes for a walk and I want to know how long to wait before I can so do to not smudge my pedicure.

submitted by sue h - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Sue! For a "touch dry" - it only takes about 2-3 minutes per coat to be try. For a deep dry, where you're able to wear shoes, we'd recommend an hour to be safe!

I absolutely loved the formula and brush however the color (Well Done) wasn’t even close to what I ordered. It was supposed to be red but it was a weird orange. I returned. I’ll keep an eye out for different colors though because I definitely would have liked the polish.

Takes Forever To Dry

Misty - 8 months ago, Verified purchaser
I always wait 5-10 minutes between coats, which is more than enough time for every other nail polish I've used but not for this one apparently. I thought Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear took forever to dry but this one is even worse. I was absolutely shocked when I sat down to do my top coat after about 20 minutes (I got distracted watching my show), and the top coat put streaks in my polish. This doesn't even happen with the cheapo Sally Hansen, Sinful Colors, or Nina Ultra polishes I own (that are also less than half the price). I waited another 15 minutes to do the top coat on the rest of my nails. I made sure they was no tackiness before applying. They turned out ok. But the next day, I had chips on half of my nails. This was really jarring considering Ive been using ILNP, Color Club, and Kbshimmer lately, which typically last over a week. So I can spend a few $ more, and my manicure will last at least 3 times as long. Seems like a no brainer. Glitz and Glam is a weird sort of milky blue white base. I love the pink shimmer but the bluish base makes me look anemic. Maybe it wouldn't look as gross on a darker skin tone, I don't know.

Nail polish colors named after celebrity shows

Flower - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
The Defy & Inspire nail polish have really nice colors. I purchased Bachelor Nation. The names are reality show inspired. The polish went on my nails smoothly and full of color and they had a beautiful glossy shimmer. The polish lasted longer than my other nail polishes. The Defy and Inspire polish is very reasonably priced yet has a quality finish.

The perfect red!!! Got this because it was the cheapest option and this is literally the perfect shade of red. I’ve had it for 4 days and it started chipping and getting dull now which is pretty typical for me since I’m always cleaning and getting my hands wet doing dishes or washing them so most nail polish do not stick around for long. Oh one thing I dont like, the brush is very thick, like it has too many bristles so it can be a little difficult to maneuver the brush without painting your finger. But for the price, I’m not mad for the performance and it worked just fine for me!

Beautiful Color, But Does Chip

Craftygal03 - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I love the color!! Unfortunately the “no chipping” is not accurate. It’s hard to believe any nail polish will absolutely live up to no chipping, but this definitely did not. I painted my nails 2 days ago & 5 of my 10 fingernails are chipped. It does look beautiful though and has great coverage and shine. The application was great & not streaky at all.
1 reply from CUSTOMER CARE TEAM team - 1 year ago
Hello! Thank you for your feedback! We're thrilled to hear you love the color and application! For best results, use defy & Inspire base coat, followed by 2 coats of your favorite defy & Inspire lacquer finishing it off with the defy & Inspire top coat. These steps will help lengthen your manicure. Thank you!

This is a great forest green to add to your collection. In two coats, you’ll get a full coverage mani. I love the defy and inspire formula, and I am so happy to see this green in their collection. I always add a top coat to my polish and this helps it to not chip or lose its shine. This mani lasted two weeks for me! While I am happy to have this color, it is very similar to another in my collection, so I am just wishing deft and inspire could add a all in one polish line.

I have seen the color displayed on nails from the internet and I wanted to try the nail polish for myself. I have been doing nails for years and I’m obsessed with nail polish. I typically go for Sally Hansen because of the drying speed and the price but I decided I would go for Defy and inspire for a change. I was so eager to use it and I have a nail dryer to speed up the process. The nail polish NEVER DRIED!!! I was so disappointed. And what stinks even more is that I can’t use it anymore! It’s not worth the price for its quality. I’m sticking with Sally Hansen. I gave it an extra star because I still love the color but it really deserves one star. I also did some searching on the brand and I guess it takes about 30 minutes just to dry and it doesn’t last long. Never buying again!!!

Emily, we are so sorry to hear you didn't receive a great experience with the product! Did you our defy & Inspire, base and top coat? This helps with prolonging the manicure but I'd love to hear more about the dry time. It shouldn't take 30 minutes to dry so, please DM us on social media so we can get you new product and discuss the issue in more depth. Thank you!

Hello, thank you for your review. For best results, please use the defy & Inspire base coat, let dry. Then paint two coats of lacquer, let dry. Finish with one coat of defy & Inspire top coat. Using the base and top coat will assist with lengthening your manicure from chipping. Any other questions please DM us on Facebook and/or Instagram. Thank you!

Carine - 1 year ago
This deep forest cream shade is a game changer. It’s deeply pigmented and has an amazing high shine. Covers beautifully and is opaque in 2 coats. No issues with chipping, streaking, bubbles, and was long-wearing. It reminds me of strolls with my kids in the park and tranquil times surrounded by nature. Love that it dries fast and is self-leveling. One coat covers beautifully with a great shine very vibrant, two coats reveals a rich forest green, a real versatile shade and transitions seamlessly through all seasons. Pairs perfectly with a matte topcoat, it’s dainty and dramatic all in one bottle.

For the price it’s not bad, but you get what you pay for. Left wanting on quality of the brush and color payoff. My brush was wonky / mis-shaken and the color didn’t dry as vibrant as I hoped. But the formula of the polish itself I don’t have an issue with. Full opacity in 2-3 coats, leveled easily, and dried in good time

Chips super quick!

3 out of 5 stars
Chiara - 1 year ago
Let me start off by saying that I paint my nails about 2x/week. I do them myself and they never chip. I end up repainting them because I get bored of the colors before they even have a chance to chip. On occasion I am able to keep a neutral color for about 1 week. I love what defy and inspire is as far as non toxic and clean beauty, BUT the next day after polishing my nails, 3 of them are chipped. Never has this happened to me! I got Bachelor Nation and the peach one, but haven't used the peach one yet. I'm super disappointed because the formula is awesome and dried super quick! I'll try the other color to see if it happens with that one and if it does, I'm going to have to return it. Price point is great, but it just isn't worth it to have it not even give me a full day.
