Have you ever tried “natural” nail polish? Until recently, I hadn’t. My Natural Beauties specialise in skincare and cosmetics that are organic, natural, cruelty-free and affordable. Their range is huge, covering everything from aromatherapy to make-up, candles to skincare, perfumes to cosmetics, and they have free standard UK delivery on all orders. They kindly sent me the Suncoat Natural Nail Art set in ‘Earth’ to try!
The set contains four 7ml bottles of water-based mineral nail colours: gold, white, pink and green. Each bottle has a thin nail art brush built into the lid. They are chemical solvent free and Suncoat is against animal testing. All four colours have a pearly finish and you don’t need a nail polish remover – they simply peel off! I couldn’t wait to play with them.
Since these are natural nail polishes I thought it would be a shame to use them with my usual base and top coats so I created these looks without either. The first photo I used 2 coats of each polish to build up a pretty, soft, pearly finish. I’m sure using a white base coat would make the colours stand out more. The second photo I used 3 coats of pink then used a dotting tool with the white. I love how this looks, it’s really pretty! The third photo I used 3 coats of green and 2 coats of gold to create the line down the middle.
The gold and the pink look the best I think, they dry to a really smooth finish. Green and white need a few more coats and a little more patience, and ideally a top coat to get a smooth finish. All four colours dry incredibly quickly; touch dry in a few minutes and totally dry in under an hour which is brilliant!
