Little Ondine: The Peelable Nail Polish


When it comes to bad beauty habits I am the first one to admit that one of my worst is picking off my nail polish. I am just so lazy when it comes to digging out some cotton wool and Cutex. So the lazy girl's nail polish dream? Colour that lasts but comes off easily and quickly - introducing the solution: the Little Ondine range of peelable polish. 

Little Ondine have created a formula composed of natural resin, organic colourants and water that is not only peelable, but doesn't have that chemical smell that normal polishes do and is in fact completely odour free. I have the shades True Love which is a gorgeous, plummy red and New Year's, a sparkling, gold glitter, which look perfect when paired together. The polish applies smoothly and evenly, made even easier by the wide brush and each layer dries extremely quickly. Definitely no risk of the dreaded smudging here! True Love took about 3 coats to become fully opaque and 2 coats of New Year's gives an almost solid block of glitter. 

Although you can peel off the nail varnish at anytime, to make it last longer before naturally peeling, Little Ondine advise not allowing your nails to come into contact with water for at least an hour after application - ideally 3 hours. I'd personally recommend the latter or as long as possible, as when I left it just an hour I got about two days wear before it really started peeling at the sides and one nail fell off of its own accord! I will point out though that I didn't apply any base or top coat as you can't use any other brand of nail polish with Little Ondine, which would have also made a difference. If you keep your nails drier for longer (the formula is designed to harden and stabilise over time), then you can get an extra 1-2 days wear. But I love how easy it is to remove any time you want - it peels off all in one go with minimal effort and doesn't leave any residue on the nail.

Little Ondine nail polishes cost £8.40 each, so are in the mid range price bracket, but I will definitely be indulging in my lazy side and picking up a few more of their stunning shades, including the top coat. You can view the full range here.

Have you tried Little Ondine? What do you think of the concept of peelable polish?

  6. This sounds like a great product, though I'm a picker and theres nothing better than nail polish coming off in a oner, so I think this might be wasted on me applying just to peel!
