MAKEUP: NAIL POLISH

 

Kester Black Nail Polish- Narcissist

I have used Kester Black nail polishes for a few years now and I absolutely love them. They are a dream to apply with their wide brushes and quick-drying formulas and each has a flirty, quirky name that I just love. What sets these nail polishes apart from the rest of the herd is that they are free from harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, xylene, parabens, artificial fragrance, phthalates or any animal derived or test ingredients. They’re also cruelty-free, vegan and carbon neutral. Is there anything KB can’t do? This particular polish, in a decadently dark red shade, is also water permeable and breathable meaning it is better for your nails. Since I got my hot little hands on this product I have not let it out of my sight. In fact, it has been my signature pedicure colour for the past month. It really is phenomenal especially when topped with KB’s Supersonic Top Coat.

Kester Black Nail Polish- The Future is Female

I have used Kester Black nail polishes for a couple of years now and I really like them. They are a dream to apply because they have wide brushes and quick-drying formulas. Each different shade also has a flirty, clever name which is a characteristic of the brand that I absolutely love. They declare that The Future is Female through this gorgeous shade (and they’re not wrong). It is the perfect blush pink and complements my skin tone beautifully. It is free from harsh chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, xylene, parabens, artificial fragrance, phthalates or any animal derived or test ingredients. It’s also cruelty-free, vegan and carbon neutral. This particular polish is also water permeable and breathable meaning it is better for your nails. Win, win! After applying KB’s Miracle Base Coat I applied one coat, swiping the brush along my nail from the base to tip. I let it dry (about 4-5 minutes) then I applied a second layer. I sealed my manicure with KB’s Supersonic Top Coat and voila! The perfect manicure in the comfort of my own home, just the way I like it.

Mavala Mini Nail Polish Cacao

I am in love with this petite little nail polish. Not only is the colour a beautiful neutral shade, the formula is perfect and turns any amateur nail artist (me) into an absolute pro. For such a tiny little bottle, the brush itself was wide enough to cover my whole nail in one easy swipe allowing for perfect application. The formula itself is made from a natural resin extracted from wood so it allows your nails to breathe so you can have pretty nails all the time without the fear of future damage.
