Does REACT by Morgan Taylor work?

Does REACT by Morgan Taylor work? That was the thought that crossed my mind when this landed on my Beauty Desk.

Does REACT by Morgan Taylor Work?

REACT by Morgan Taylor is an Extended Wear Base and Top Coat with Gelish Infused Technology. It is meant to give you ten days wear, dry in 8 minutes and requires no light or soak off…

But, does it work?

We will get to the ten days wear in a bit… Let’s talk dry time and no light and soak off… Yes, you don’t need a light, and yes you also do not need to soak off. The polish comes off pretty easily with a normal remover. About the dry time… It dried to the touch in about nine minutes, but it still took quite a while to dry fully. But to be fair, I don’t think any polish in the world can dry fully in less than a couple of hours.

Morgan Taylor REACT

Day 1: As you can see my nails are looking super glossy and shiny! P.S. the shade I am wearing is called Prettier in Pink.

Day 6: Slight fading around the tips, and the colour is not as glossy or vibrant, but it isn’t dull either. (excuse the bad lighting)

Day 9: Slightly more fading along the tips and a slight chip is starting on my thumb edge. (again, please excuse the bad lighting)

React Morgan Taylor Review

So, my verdict…

Yes, Morgan Taylor REACT does work. My mani usually lasts chip free for about five days, so to get nine days wear is pretty great! I love that the colour wasn’t dull towards the end, it wasn’t as glossy, but it certainly wasn’t dull.

The best part of this Base and Top Coat is that it works with any Morgan Taylor polish you own, and just makes it better, so you don’t need to go out and buy a whole new polish collection. I have not tried it with any other polish brands, so I cannot comment on how well it extends the wear of other brands.

    Hi Azraa. My mani usually lasts 5 to 6 days. Your pictures are Great and the lighting looks okay to me. I currently don’t own any Morgan Taylor nail polishes so I won’t be buying this until I know that I can use it on my current collection. Please give us an update if you do try it on other brands. The Prettier in Pink shade looks really suits you ?

    Beautiful nails Azraa! I don’t own any Morgan Taylor polish. What is the brush like ?
    I struggle to get a neat application and I’ve been using Essence gel finish polish just because of the wide brush and I get 4-5 days .
    The base and top coats look like they r worth it 🙂

      The brush is really nice and easy to use. Not as wide as Essence, and not as thin as some others. I want to try them with other brands soon to see how it works. Thanks for reading!
