I hope you are all well. I am still crazy busy here, just day to day my hours fly by quickly and I can’t always remember everything I’ve done! all I know is I seem to have little time to do leisurely things these days!
Anyway I figured it was time I did a review. I’ve had these Little BU nail polishes for ages – I found them when moving house a few weeks ago so decided to give them to my cousin who is 4 years old.
Little BU Nail Polish is designed for little girls – these wash off polishes are non-toxic and are designed to be gentle and easy to remove. Adults can of course use them, if you are like me and commitment phobic (I hate the way nail polish remover leaves my nails) then this is a good option!
I have two shades, Alexi – a sparkly red pink and Chole, a metallic purple. I also have a top coat which makes the polish last longer.
Kimi (my model) as I mentioned earlier is aged 4 and has had her nails painted quite a few times, mainly by unruly teenage cousins (ahem). But it’s so natural for a little girl to want to try out make up, I think. Nail polish (as long as it’s ok with school) seems like one of the kinder ways to try out cosmetics, although one may want to stick with the more sparkly and natural colours.
Kimi was quite jittery but I didn’t find it hard applying the polish to her nails – the texture is liquidy and easy to spread.
Alexi a sparkly red is a little bit grown up – I guess even as a grown woman I sometimes find red polish too much so this is the case even more so on a little girl. The sparkles redeems it somewhat. Chloe is a pretty sheer purple, very suitable for little girls.
The top coat makes the polish last longer – with it on these lasted 3 hand washes but did not survive a shower.
Note: You should use 2 coats of each colour and set with a hairdryer. Obviously use this on a young lady with some sense not on a newborn or a small baby or indeed anyone who can’t scream at you GET OFF YOU ARE BURNING ME.
I really do like that these are gentle colours – Kimi can be trusted to apply this on herself as it’s harmless whereas no one would trust her to apply regular polish to herself.
These polishes cost £9.95 each (yes, a bit steep, but if there’s a cheaper alternative let me know!) and you can buy them here.
