Swatch and Review: NailPak Dakota

Hello again, everyone! I'm so glad to finally be back in business and ready to post!

Today's post is a long overdue one about a product I first saw on an episode of Shark Tank earlier this year. Oddly enough, it was the latest update on last Friday's episode!

NailPak by Duality Cosmetics is a 3-in-1 product, featuring polish, polish remover pads, and a nail file! And really, how many of you polishaholics out there don't have those three splayed out across your desk somewhere?

You screw off the polish bottle on top and below are the remover pads (right) and file (left).

I really put the remover pads to the test, using them to remove my butter LONDON Bluey/Nfu Oh 52 manicure. They did an adequate enough job on a manicure that was pretty hard to remove, with two coats of blue and two coats of flakies over it. It took at least one pad per nail, but I think with a less heavy-duty combination, this would have worked better.

I did like the fact that the remover is non-acetone and has a cuticle oil-like feel. It didn't feel as drying as a lot of the removers I use!

I was picked out Dakota for two reasons. The first is that my Chocolate Lab's name is Dakota! Second, it's one of the most unique polishes I have seen this year!


Here's a macro shot of Dakota. There's a ton of brown, copper, gold, brown, and magenta glitter in there!

Look at how gorgeous that is! I loved this polish and I'm not normally a fan of browns. It's definitely a keeper.

Overall, I like the idea of the Nail Pak as a 3-in-1 manicure in a bottle. However, with a price tag of $15, I don't know that I would be willing to spend that on one shade. Refills are $5 for two packs. For the same $15, I could buy a bottle of a salon brand, a full bottle of my favorite remover, and a bag of cotton balls. That being said, it's a lot more convenient to have an all-in-one, so I do see the upside

Nail Pak bottles are available through their website for $15 each and their holiday collection was just released. Nail Pak is also on sale at your local Ulta and on!

So what is your verdict on the Nail Pak? I'm dying to know!

Thanks for sticking with me!

  1. The polish is gorgeous, but the price tag is a little high, especially when the same products individually are cheaper! Sooo glad to have you back to blogging! Glad you're safe!

  2. What a pretty polish, and I love the idea of having a file and remover pads right there in the bottle! It would be really nice when traveling :) it is pretty expensive though...
