Acquarella Nail Polish

Have you ever tried a water based nail polish? The experience is a bit different, but if toxic free nail polish is what you want you will love this. Acquarella has plenty of nail polish colours and it is easy to apply.

How is water based nail polish different from traditional nail polish?
  1. It does not stay on tha nail as long as toxic nail polish.
  2. It takes longer to dry on the nail.
  3. It is essential that you clean the nails properly first as any residues from hand lotions or similar will make it difficult for the polish to stick to the nail.
I found it a bit frustrating that it takes about 15 minutes before you can actually use your hands, a great way to train mindfulness and simply not doing anything. I did love the colours and I used the Acquarella Remover before applying the nail polish (they recommend you do so) so the polish lasted about 3 days before it started chipping on the ends, ok I think for being water based.

Have you tried any water based nail polishes? Any recommendations to share?
