Digital Nails – Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That!

Alrighty, Reader, I have something INSANELY exciting to share with you today! We are talking game changer here! Well, it was for me, at least. My beloved Digital Nails has created a quick dry topcoat! I repeat, Digital. Nails. Quick. Dry. Topcoat. Go ahead and take a moment to let that set in. I’m just going to flail for a while longer.

Okay, have we composed ourselves? Well, as much composure as we can manage. It’s about to get better. The name. Oh glob, the name! It’s glorious!

Oh yes she DID! You know you’ve made it when an Indie brand names a polish after you. Sweet Brown, you’ve done it!

But returning to the polish itself, I think the hardest thing about this is trying to figure out how to showcase a clear polish. So to achieve this, or to attempt to achieve this, I’m going to show you a series of photos, starting with a natural matte finish polish and moving to glossy and glitters. Check it!

So, as the photos show, I was able to add ridiculous shine to an otherwise matte polish. And to top that off, I also sealed in a chunky glitter bomb, giving it a glass-smooth finish.

But, just in case you were wanting some more visuals, below are photos showing all of the manicures that I have used ANGTFT on in previous posts without you even realizing it! I’m sneaky like that! (Brace yourself. It’s about to get pic heavy up in here)

I know, that was a lot of pictures. But I’ve consistently used this on every mani that I’ve done (except one) since Raph sent me this bottle of magic. I’ve also used this on a ton of manicures since, but I’ve yet to publish those posts, so you’ll just have to wait a bit.

Now, wanna hear some logistics!?

Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That is: 3 free, crazy fast drying (dry time varied from mani to mani, but the averages were: tacky at 30 seconds, dry to touch – but still dent-able at 45 seconds, and solid as a rock at 60), über shiny, self-leveling, and SHRINKAGE-FREE!

Of all the manicures I used this on, none showed signs of shrinkage, and many were on for 12-24 hours. It does have a distinct odor, but I found it in NO way to be offensive, it’s just…different. Also, at $6 for a 13ML bottle, the price is all sorts of awesome!

Conclusion

Yep, Sweet Brown says it all! I do feel like there will be occasions (with hungrier, mega-thick glitter manis) when my trusty Seche will be needed, but I truly expect to be using ANGTFT on about 95% of the manicures I do from here on out. In addition to how great it works, it’s also made by an independent brand. And, taking my blog’s history into account, I’m sure it’s no surprise that, given a well made product, I will ALWAYS choose an indie over a mainstream.

Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That will launch tonight (6/7/13) at 7pm CST. In addition to this meme-a-rific topcoat, Digital Nails will also be releasing a lot of other (AMAZING) new shades. You better believe I’ll be there, Reader! Partly because I’m at the bottom of my bottle of ANGTFT, and partly because my obsessed self will be snatching up a lot, if not ALL of these new creations! And hey, if you’re feeling the curiosity take hold, head over to the Digital Nails Facebook page, there are tons of teasers just waiting for you to creep on them!

So let me hear it, Reader. Does this new treatment from Digital Nails have you twitterpated? Will you be amongst the first in line, ready to abuse your F5 key? Tell me about it, yo!

Geek & Love,
