Dermelect Above It

Have you heard of Dermelect? I’ve seen their polishes around on the internet but I never paid much attention because they are $12-$14 for a .4oz bottle which is kinda pricey, and I’m a big cheapskate for the most part. However, a couple of weeks ago I was loading up on essentials at Ulta, and I happened to see a bunch of these polishes in their clearance section for under $0.50!!! Whuuuuut???? At first, I grabbed everything in site because how could I not, but once the euphoria wore off a bit I put things back and only purchased three because I had to leave some for the rest of you, right? See how considerate I am? Besides, I didn’t know what to expect from the brand and maybe I would hate the polish or the brush. When you hate the polish, it doesn’t matter how cheap it is–it’s still a waste. Let me show you the first color I picked up.

I also really liked the brush even though it’s thinner that what I usually like. Overall, I think the quality of the polish is very good. Would I pay full price for it? Nope.

So what do you think of this polish? Have you tried anything from this brand? I’m pleasantly surprised and hope that I can purchase more on clearance in the future. Moving on to more serious things: today is Ash Wednesday which signifies the beginning of Lent. I have decided to go on a polish no-buy during this time which I know will be very difficult for me considering the sheer amount of Spring collections that are coming out now, but I think it will be good for me. There are a lot of things that I could give up, but nothing will be as hard as giving up purchasing new polishes. Wish me luck!

  1. Oh boy, I LOVE it mattified!
    I just keep staring at the pictures, so so stunning <3

    I've just decided to go on a no buy too, I was re-organizing my stash and I was shocked at the sheer amount of polishes I had yet to try. It almost felt like a waste of money, so much money spend on polish, only to have them sit in my helmers.

    It's going to be hard, I'm notoriously bad at not buying new polish (hence the amount of untried), but I'm determined to do it! No new polish until April!

  2. I actually have a bunch of dermalect polishes and I really love them… Except the price. I will be the first to admit I’ve never paid full price for one of them. I’ve bought every single one on clearance at ulta, although I didn’t get the 50 cents price!!! (*GASP*) most of them I have found in the $2.50-$5 range, and I’m more than willing to pay that!

  3. Well, that is gorgeous, both glossy and matte.
    I think I’m in on the no-buy, too. I’ve been buying too much lately as a form of retail therapy and it’s kind of fun and all, but it’s a bad habit to get into and I’ve spent too much money. Plus, as you said, now that you put the idea in my head, I feel like giving up anything else is the easy way out, haha.
