Continuing the trend of polishes that break my camera, today I bring you Dermelect’s Lust Struck. No, I was not struck with lust upon seeing this polish, as I rarely am when presented with anything remotely pink. But it ended up pleasantly surprising me with its punchy coral hue (more on that later, if you’re looking at this picture and thinking that looks pink to me).
Dermelect touts its polish line as “the first peptide infused color treatment.” It’s supposed to do amazing things for your nails, like strengthen them and restore flexibility. It also claims to resist chipping and splitting, and is big-3 free. And does it perform?
I have no idea. Seriously, worst beauty blogger ever, but I have issues keeping polish on for more than a couple of days. I just get so bored of my nails being the same color all the time, ya feel me? I didn’t even get to painting my other hand because I got distracted by something else so yeah…asking me to keep this on long enough to see results is a bit of a stretch. I will say that the formula is great, however. It goes on smooth and opaque, and is easy to control. I’m wearing 2 coats in these photos.
About the photos, well, this polish ended up being so bright that my camera refused to accurately capture the color. I did some tweaking in Photoshop, but it’s still a little off. Lust Struck is not quite neon, but it’s a bright coral, leaning more pink than orange, but with just enough warmth to spark my interest. It’s eye-catching but not eye-searing, pretty but not boring. And for the two whole days I wore it, I got a bunch of compliments on my one hand, which were usually followed by, “What happened to your other hand?”
