Who knew natural, organic nail polish would be the next big thing! Little Ondine comes into the market to change the concept of nail varnish as we know it. A breakthrough formula with natural ingredients such as water, organic colourants, and natural resin aims to bring healthy colour to our nails as well as hydrate them. Sounds too good to be true? Well you better believe it! Not many things that are sent to me leave me with that feeling of wanting more, but I am already picking out my next shades and that is how impressed I am with this stuff.
The formula itself is thick, but not too thick that it makes it difficult to apply. Quite the contrary, a rich pigmented nail polish is what you are in for. It glides beautifully on the nails and with the well designed application brush two strokes is all you need to get perfect coverage. I always go with two coats of normal polish, and this is not any different. Two coats are enough to leave your nails streak free and best of all, with no clumps or bubbles! By the time you are done with your first coat, all of your nails are already dry which is a huge plus for me. I am a very “last minute” kinda girl so you can imagine how messy a wet mani can get when I’m trying to do a billion things at the same time. This however makes on-the-go very much possible, not just because the formula is quick drying but also because it is odour free…yes, let me repeat that: odour free! Confession time: I may or may not have painted my nails numerous times on public transport which in turn then lead to very weird looks from everybody, mostly because of the strong toxic smell. Being able to paint my nails anytime and anywhere without anybody noticing is simply brilliant. Plus, if you get bored of the colour and want to change it, there is no need for acetone. Simply peel it off and start again! The variety of colours makes sure there is a little something for everybody.
Would I stop using “normal” nail polishes? Probably not and that’s because I’m pretty set in my ways. But it is nice to know that there is a product out there to suit those with sensitive nails, kids, mums-to-be or those simply looking for an eco-friendly polish. Little Ondine is for sure giving the big beauty brands a run for their money, and it is no surprise that their product has been nominated for the Lib Beauty Awards 2015 for “Must-Have Makeup”. So if you haven’t yet tried this, I recommend it 100%; these natural, vegan and cruelty-free nail polishes will not disappoint! The nude colours are already on my wishlist and with the discount code “TRYME”, you and I can both get £5 off on our first order.
