When it comes to nail polish, there are few attributes as important as shine, endurance, and safety, so when a nail polish brand easily offers up these, and more, it’s certainly a home run! Morgan Taylor Professional Nail Lacquer, created by two nail technicians who have had thirty years experience in the industry, set out to create a high quality, performance formula that made no exceptions or comprises on they needs and concerns of customers.

"When it comes to nail polish, there are few attributes as important as shine, endurance, and safety, so when a nail polish brand easily offers up these, and more, it’s certainly a home run!"

In recent years there have been a movement to reformulate without the “big three” chemicals found in nail polish products, which are dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, and formaldehyde. Morgan Taylor’s formula is free of them, while still maintaining the attributes that these ingredients produced, namely ease of application, resiliency, and preventing chips.

All of the Morgan Taylor colors I’ve tested out, from solid dark colors to shimmery iridescent varieties have proven to be so strong, shiny, and durable that a top coat is hardly necessary. The polishes tend to apply more thickly than others that I’ve tried; by no means is it goopy or clumpy, but rather saturates the nail bed so well in one swipe that minimal additional coats are needed.

The brand also has a great matte top coat (Mattes a Wrap) and quick drying top coast (Need for Speed) so that you can adapt and update your favorite color with a different finish, and/or be on your way without having to indulge in too much drying time. The polishes themselves do definitely dry on the faster side for nail polishes, and come in a wide swatch of colors that include finishes from crème to sheer, glitter, pearl, metallic, or shimmer.  Last, this made in America product offers premium features for an affordable price- each bottle costs just $9.  At .5 of a fl. Oz, you are also getting a bit more polish than what competing brands offer at the same price.
