Say Sayonara to Nicked Nails
I want to share a secret with you. I want to scream it from the rooftops! I have discovered one of the best nail polish brands EVER. That’s right gals – the base coat is fantastic, the polish is vibrant and saturated with color, and the top coat is crrrrazy good!
Silky –the Polish with a Conscience, was developed by nail art enthusiast, Janna. The products are non-toxic, animal cruelty free, environmentally friendly, 100% vegan and 5 –free, meaning they do not contain toxic ingredients including formaldehyde, camphor, DBP, toluene or parabens.
The line offers 13 amazing nail polish shades as well as an herbal remedy base coat and wet look topcoat. Priced at $12.50, these bottles may seem a tad more expensive than your average lacquers, but keep reading and you’ll see why they are worth every cent. Each bottle also has an inspirational quote on the bottom, which I love!
I applied the base coat on my nails (note: I buffed my nails before painting as it helps your manicure stay fresh looking longer), followed by Mulberry Vine polish (an intense vampy ruby red color), and then finished it with the wet look topcoat.
I was thrilled when four days later all I could see was a tiny chip on one of my nails. Mind you, I don’t wear gloves when doing dishes or protect my nails in any other way (though I probably should), so for it to last four days was a small miracle.
I touched up the chip and was pleasantly surprised when a week later, yes, that’s right – my nails were still pretty! Here are some before/after photos to show the beautiful finish and staying power of these products.
I still cannot get over the staying power of these products! I have come to hate gel manicures because after 3 or 4 days they begin to peel, ruining my nail bed underneath. And acrylic nails are even worse. Now I have found a polish that is shiny, long lasting, and good for my nails. Thanks Janna!
Here are two pics of this fabulous product. The first right after my original aplication, and the second a week later!
