Nailmatic Aqua Nail Poppy - Coral Red
Putting the pop into Poppy, this bright coral-red lives up to its name. What’s more: its odourless, water-based formula means it’s also super green! Comes off with regular nail polish remover.
How to apply
- Apply a thin coat as a base – especially when applying richly pigmented colours.
- NOT TO BE SKIPPED: apply over your colour as a top coat – this step is essential to ensure your AQUA nail polish lasts.
- Avoid contact with hot water for four hours. No washing up (yay!), no hot baths (sorry…).
- Apply an extra coat 24 hours later for added shine and hold.
- Remove with regular nail polish remover – or, even better, a bio-based one. Leave to soak a bit longer than with a regular nail polish.
Introducing the first water-based nail polish - AQUA Nail! Nailmatic are already known for their use of plant-based ingredients in their nail polish, and now they've come up with an even better way to reduce our carbon footprint when it comes to nail colour.
The water-based formula took over two years to create and consists of 54% water to which resin is added for hold and pigment for colour. With a formula that is more than 50% water and with no petrochemical solvents, Aqua Nail does not emit volatile compounds and is therefore odourless, non-toxic, and non-flammable - with zero compromise on colour.
AQUA Nail is free of toluene, formaldehyde, phthalates, parabens, xylene, camphor, colophony, benzophenone and nanoparticles!
Such a special nail polish formula requires some special manicure rules:
- Apply a slick base coat
- One or two layers of AQUA Nail depending on desired level of opacity.
- A top coat to help the colour last two to three days
Made in France.
