I was sent a nail polish set by Morgan Taylor (MT). I decided to give it a try. I usually don’t paint my nails because I am a notorious nail biter! Who else out there is guilty of this? *raise your hand*
Morgan Taylor’s Rocket Man collection debuted in Summer 2019 with 6 colors plus 1 specialty coat. Below are the colors plus specialty coat.
Morgan Taylor Review
I decided to review this set because it took me back to my first concert ever…with Billy Joel and Elton John! Prior to this, I hadn’t painted my nails for over 13 months. I am a low maintenance gal who loves to live in my leggings.
Below are my pros and cons of Morgan Taylor polishes.
- Dries fast! One of my biggest gripes about nail polish (and a major reason why I rarely wear polish) is because they can take forever to dry. I actually timed my first coat and recorded 28 seconds for the initial layer to fully dry. I added a second coat and recorded an additional 1 minute and 12 seconds to dry. This was a total of 4 minutes faster than their competitor brands Essie polishes and 2 minutes faster than OPI!
- Long Lasting! I’ve had my polish on for about 4 days now and I use my hands a lot to clean, cook, do yoga, etc. They don’t chip easily. I did not add a top coat, just to test the polish out “au naturale.” MT definitely chips less easy than their competitor brands like OPI.
- Wide coverage brush. I found myself swiping less (not left) with their wide brush. I loved it! I could paint my nails in two swipes.
- Opaque colors. The colors were very opaque or not see-through after the first coat. I found myself using less than competitor brands (cough Essie, cough).
I couldn’t find any cons about Morgan Taylor polishes. I guess the biggest complaint I have about this polish is that it’s not shiny. It applies pretty matte (does not have a shiny texture). If you want a shiny effect, you’ll have to use a top coat.
Do I Recommend Morgan Taylor?
I actually love this set. I love how opaque the colors are and how fast the polishes dry! They also last long, so for a gal who’s low maintenance, this is perfect because I don’t have to reapply the polish over and over again.
So yes, I definitely recommend Morgan Taylor polishes!
