Great polish!

Love the colours and how the smell doesn't linger! Just one thing - the Daydream colour stains the nails so hope SHOP.COM will be able to revamp that one because my sister and I LOVE the colour!

My bottle comes with me to the Salon!

I like the coverage and lasting power of the Motives colors, I always used to bring my own color (OPI) with me because I would need to touch up the paint between fills, but now I just use my Motives and don't need to touch up in between.

Durable color with strong pigments

I play the harp and spend a lot of time typing on a computer for school. Motives is the longest-lasting polish I've tried and is really resistant to chipping during my daily routine. It goes on smooth, but isn't watery. I'm also really impressed with the lighter colors, such as the white and nude, because I only need one normal coat or two thin coats to get the true color to appear on my nail. I've been really disappointed with the light colors from much more expensive brands, like OPI, but Motives requires much less to look good!

Good nail polish

This is good nail color. Wish it makes more color like bright red, redish-pink, and light gray colors.

I have used the Motives Nail polishes for years. My manicurist loves them for me, and I adore the colors. They endure a heavy computer use without chipping and do not appear to fatigue in the harsh chlorine of pools.



What are the proper steps for applying Motives Nail Lacquer?

Here are some steps to guide you in applying nail polish:

  • Apply Motives Base Coat first to protect the nail from stains and increase your polish’s staying power
  • Apply nail polish in three strokes: one from the nail base to the tip along the center, two and three around the base and up each side
  • Allow 3-4 minutes for the nail polish to dry before applying another coat
  • Allow 3-4 minutes for the nail polish to dry and apply Motives Clear Top Coat to polish off the finish

Tip: Apply Motives Clear Top Coat the first and third day following your manicure. This will help hold the polish even longer and prevent it from chipping.

Will Motives Nail Lacquer stain my nails?
Motives Nail Lacquer will stain your nails if applied alone. To prevent staining, always remember to use Motives Base Coat.

Will Motives Nail Lacquer chip or peel?
Motives Nail Lacquer should not chip, flake or peel when applied properly. Remember to use Motives Base Coat and Motives Clear Top Coat. These two products will prevent staining and will seal your polish for a longer wear time.

Can Motives Nail Lacquer colors be worn with anything?
Motives Nail Lacquer colors were chosen to be compatible with any outfit and any occasion. These sexy colors can be worn at any time and still look amazing.

Is Motives Nail Lacquer tested on animals?
No, this product has not been animal tested.
