Sula is a brand that is quite hard to get hold of but they have some super cute and nice products. I already love the Fragrance range – I also tested some Paint & Peel Nail Polish in Dove (grey) and Azure (teal).
Here are the shades you can buy:
I want Sorbet and Watermelon! I’d also like the Metallic top coat – these colours are matte so if you want some shimmer, I am guessing their metallic top coat will add sparkle.
More about the polish:
This collection of good-for-you hues is inspired by what’s happening on the street and the runway – colors that are hard to come by but not to remove! Touch ups are a snap with the fast drying formula.
Sula Paint & Peel™ has a “Big 3-Free” formulation that is free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and Phthalates – the smelly stuff, and is also free of the remaining cancer-linked ingredients still found in standard polish.
Note – you just peel this off you don’t need a special remover.
Remember peelable nail polish? I remember being at school and some kids have some awful peelable polish which never did completely come off and looked horrid and messy.
This polish is opaque and matte. It goes on easily and there is ABSOLUTElY NO SMELL. Nada. It reminds me of a really soft paint.
I did 2 coats and it didn’t take long to dry – however the instructions say wait 30 mins for it to dry properly. Then I started taking it off from the edge:
Bit more….yes I know, my nail is gross….
All off! Note there was some stuck stubbonly on the sides and my nail looked a tad dry (I didn’t use a base coat):
This was my 1st attempt and I got it off in three parts:
My next attempt came off in one piece:
So clearly there is a knack to this. THis one came off cleanly. My nail bed looks a little dry:
Polish off very quickly!:
After a tricky start with the thumb, I really liked it! The reasons I don’t wear polish that often is because I hate the smell and I hate the bother of doing four coats (base, 2 layers and top) and waiting for them all to dry (I always smudge it before it dries) and I hate the trouble of removing them.
With Sula Paint & Peels, the 3 problems mentioned above have gone!
The polishes are rich and opaque too – they looked true in colour and were easy to apply.
My 2 minor problems with it was that it made my nail bed look a little dry when it came off – I would use a base coat with it next time and the second thing is that I tend to pick at things a lot and use my hands a lot generally. Thus, the corner of the polish had started to come loose by itself (within a day). A layer of top coat I think, would seal it in giving it more durability.
I would recommend these and the colours are quite nice. It also means you can apply it nearly anywhere without suffocating people – bored at work? Apply some polish at your desk! No one will even realise!
