Little Ondine Natural Nail Polishes

Little Ondine Natural Nail Polishes
As much as I love the look of freshly painted nails, the smell of polish, waiting and the time consuming and noxious process of removing polish always puts me off painting my nails so they look bare, boring and untidy. Little Ondine may be the answer, their polishes are natural, odour free, quick drying and you don't need nail polish remover! 

I was kindly sent three of the *Little Ondine Polishes in the shades  L070 Cherry Blossom (pink), L074 Morning Glory (Blue), L402 Smack  (yellow) and I also received the *Little Ondine LT Base and Top Coat (£7.80). Firstly, I love the packaging, it is simple and cute! The instructions that come with it are great too. 

Cherry Blossom 

This bright petal pink shade is just gorgeous, it looks so summery and fresh on the nails. It is girly and pink but it isn't too barbie pink, in my opinion. The polish has a wide brush which is fantastic as it applies the polish quicker and easier. The formula is relatively thick and gloopy and it takes a bit of practise to get an even opaque coat (it's opaque in two coats). I think I will get the most use out of this shade compared to the others I have. 

Morning Glory 

Another gorgeous shade, such a vibrant minty sky blue that is more pigmented and opaque than the Cherry Blossom shade; it isn't as runny or gloopy as it either. The polishes don't smell of anything when applied or in the bottle which is so strange as I'm used to all polishes having that toxic chemical scent. There is a slight plastic scent when the polish is dry on but it isn't very noticeable at all. 

Smack

Firstly, I hate the name of this polish and to be honest it isn't a shade I would have chosen although it is the most pigmented shade of the three and it is probably the brightest nail polish I own! It is a little patchier than the previous two on my nails but with three coats it is fully opaque and streak free. When dry it is quite matte however with the topcoat it has glossy and shiny finish. 

One thing I was concerned about when I received the polishes is the longevity especially as the polishes are all natural and the main selling and unique point for me about these polishes is that they are all peel off - they don't need remover to get rid of them, you just soak your nails in warm water and peel off. The polish peels off so easily without leaving residue, marks on the nails or dryness; it is so quick and convenient and it makes changing up my polishes fuss free. However I painted my nails and after a hour or so I had a shower as I normally would and on two nails the polish did start to peel of so I had to take it off but the other three nails were fine. When out of the water and humidity the polish was normal and hard again rather than peeling at the tips. 

Overall, I love the natural ethos of the brand and that the polishes are odour free (which is a big positive for me and people around me when I paint my nails). Also I love the wide brush as it makes painting my nails so much easier and quicker even with a slightly gloopy polish and the packaging is so simple and cute. The polish is fast drying and the top/base coat is essential with these polishes. The longevity isn't as good as regular polishes and I think if you had a long shower or bath then it would all peel off but on the whole it's great especially if you like to switch up your polishes often. Also it doesn't stain the nails! Oh and the Little Ondine website has amazing polish swatches - I think this peel of formula will be amazing with glitter shades! Overall rating: ★★★★, 5/5.

  3. These sound amazing! I would love to paint my nails without my ole room reeking of that nasty smell! I do like the bright colours but prefer the more neutrals you've got in your wish list...I think 'marshmallow' would be the one for me!

  5. I have this polish and it's so interesting! I wasn't a massive fan of the formula in terms of it's application, I found it very runny, but I suppose that will be down to the water. But overall I was impressed with the finish and durability.

  9. These sounds like the heaven of all nail polishes, I always find painting mine a chore - like yourself, the negatives outweigh the positives of doing so. These might be the cure to my bad habit though, they sounds incredible. I've become a sucker for that morning glory colour, it is soooooo gorgeous and bright! Thank you for sharing xx

  17. I LOVE the cherry blossom one! I am so samey when it comes to nail varnish - i always go for the same pastel pink, must have half a dozen variations of that colour!

    Admittedly marshmallow is my fave from your wish list (old habits die hard), BUT as i said i do love the deeper pink one :) ooh might have to investigate further!
