The Ultimate Fix Review

The Ultimate Fix Nail Fixing Spray - £9.50*
I’d say when it comes to dealing with people I’m a very patient person but waiting for my nails to dry – well that’s a whole other story! Usually I end up painting my nails to perfection only to have a sip of my coffee, pull my tights up or do something else that's going to wreck them, just two second later. So when I was introduced to The Ultimate Fix spray by Beauty Narcotix at the #BloggersSecretSanta14 meet up in Nottingham, I was intrigued to find out whether it was the answer to my nail drying problems!
The Ultimate Fix is a non-oily drying spray that is designed for using between the layers of nail polish you apply. One of the problems with fast-drying top coats is that they try and dry the nail from the top layer downwards, which never really works, making the nails more prone to chipping, whereas this spray actually dries every single layer of polish.

After you have applied a layer of polish on your nails, you simply hold and spray The Ultimate Fix evenly across them from about 30cm away. It’s fine if it goes on your skin, as it disappears quickly and won’t do any harm. I find that just a quick spritz is enough to make each layer of nail polish dry to the touch within seconds!

You continue doing the same thing for all of your layers and can even apply The Ultimate Fix over a topcoat like Seche Vite. I still really like to use Seche Vite, even when I’m using this drying spray, as I haven’t found anything that compares to it when it comes to giving nails a high-shine, professional-style finish.
I’ve used this drying spray a good few times now and each time I have found that my nails have managed to last a couple of days longer than they usually would without chipping too much. For me, this sprays fast-drying properties are what I’m interested in most as it definitely makes painting my nails (which I don’t enjoy doing anyway) a quicker and more hassle-free process!

The spray is scented and smells a little like men’s body spray but this doesn’t really bother me at all. I'd just make sure you paint your nails and apply the spray in a well-ventilated area (which you should be doing anyway) so you don’t end up with a headache.

The Ultimate Fix* is available from Selfridges and costs £9.50 for 50ml. A can of this size is said to treat up to 12 manicures with normal use.

  1. Ah interesting, it is a good idea to spray each nail as I have found my spray does make my nails go a bit funny. I love mens body spray scent too so need to try this! xx
