Directions for use
You're in for a longer lasting manicure, protected nails and a smooth surface for your color to adhere to.
One down the middle, followed by one either side. Leave a one-millimetre gap between the cuticle and the color for a professional-style finish.
Our formula has been especially made to achieve perfect results with one single coat.
You can apply a second coat for denser and more opaque coverage: first layer thin, second one thicker.
It’ll give your colour a super glossy, long-wear finish, so we recommend it! Add an extra coat 48 hours later for even longer wear.
Frequently asked questions
Is it possible to use AQUA nail (water-based) and PURE color (plant-based) ranges together?
You can combine our two nail polish ranges occasionally: for example PURE color base & top coat on water-based nail polish AQUA nail. In that case, we can’t guarantee their usual longwear performances. Your nail polish may not last as long as expected.
How to dilute nail polish?
What?! Dilute your nail polish?? No way!! It will become less efficient: altered texture, less easy to apply, less glossy, shorter wear.
To avoid this, clean the neck of your nail polish bottle after use, close your nail polish and store it in a dry place (avoid prolonged sun exposure).
Can i use nail polish during my pregnancy?
First of all, congratulations!! So, if you’re pregnant, it’s better not to use nail polish. No study has shown the contrary so we pt for a cautious approach. It's only for 9 months anyway. Take this as an opportunity to set your nails free, using our serums for a healthy natural result.
Does plant-based nail polish mean that it’s organic?
Organic nail polish in itself doesn’t exist (or you’re a green-washing victim). Nail polish remains a very technical product that for now can’t be 100% natural or organic.
However, we’re developing increasingly responsible formulas, using plant-based solvents. Ingredients of natural origin like manioc, wheat, cotton, corn and potatoes.
Does 100% natural nail polish exist?
We can’t totally say goodbye to performance when talking about nail polish. Or. You might end up with a nail polish with a questionable texture (pasty or too liquid) that will chip at the slightest impact. Plasticizes and film-forming agents are essential for a formulation that meets your expectations. These ingredients are safe but they are by no means natural. We pursue our efforts to reach higher levels of naturalness.
Another option would be to rub you nails with beetroot to get a red manicure, any volunteers?
