As always, when my October Ipsy bag came in the mail, I scrambled to open it to the most intriguing product yet: charcoal-infused nail polish. Free of the many toxins used in polishes found in every store, this polish is vegan-friendly. In the shade Lava, this polish is perfect for those looking for a more neutral color, one that will conveniently match every outfit in your closet.

There are many things I love about this polish, but the most important factor is that it dries extremely fast. For a woman constantly on the go, this polish makes life so much easier. No more smudges or disasters! After putting one coat on your left hand, it will be dry by the time you finish the other. It takes about 2-3 coats for full coverage, but it balances out since the coats go on so thin and dry so fast. For this polish, I do not use a base coat so that the charcoal can soak into my nails.

For the first time in my life, my nails have been able to grow strong and healthy, a stellar accomplishment to say nonetheless. For anyone who has brittle and weak nails like I did, this is the No. 1 product I would recommend.

The only downfall to this polish would be that after a while it starts to develop a thick consistency, making it a bit harder to use, but the positives outweigh this downfall.
