Disclaimer: This blog is in collaboration with Little Ondine, the nail polishes were sent to me by the brand, but the review is absolutely genuine and true.
I was amazed when I first learnt about water-based, natural nail polishes from Little Ondine. These polishes are not only free of toxins but also save your time, money and energy that you would spend on removing regular nail polish with acetone because you know what… They can be peeled off!! Just what I needed in my life!
I got to try three of their shades, the first one is Ibiza, which is a deep orangy red, the other one is Aqua, which is a gorgeous teal blue, very unique… and the third shade is Nebula which is such a pretty metallic green, this one is my favourite. I also got to try their top/ base coat, it looks milky white but turns transparent when dried.
The polishes come in transparent cuboidal bottles. These don’t take a lot of space, unlike the cylindrical bottles. I love the brush applicator, the bristles help in easy and perfect application.
Quality and Texture
It was quite pleasing to try odour free nail polish, I have always hated the strong odour which most of the nail polishes have. These polishes have a texture similar to gel polishes, they glide on smoothly and leave a streak-free finish. Two coats are required to give a completely opaque finish which is very much gel-like. I love it! The high quality and it’s quick drying nature has made me fall in love with these.
Apart from all the goodness that you experience while applying the polish, there is even greater satisfaction in peeling it off. If you hate nail polish removers like I do… you will definitely love these. Removing nail polishes has never been so easy and quick.
These last for 2-3 days, after which these start to peel off, which might be a downside for many. I like to change my nail polish in 2-3 days so I don’t mind the short wear time.
These retail for $13.99 each. BUY HERE
