Here’s an interesting fact about nail enamels: the dermotological community considers nail enamel as a significant allergen source for dermatitis, especially periorbital dermatitis.
Surprised? Think about how often you rub your eyes with your hands, and you won’t be so! Let’s also remember that Bubba’s skin is sensitive!
Before you swear off the nail polish or use this as an excuse to skip your manicures, here’s some good news!
Clinique has developed a range of nail enamels called A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins that is 100% fragrance free.
The scientists working at Clinique spent three years doing research, followed by another three years developing the product. Before the line was introduced at Clinique counters, the nail colours were allergy tested by dermatologists, ophthalmologists, and women with sensitive skin and eyes.
Fans of Clinique’s nail colours will rejoice to know that the brand’s iconic hues area available from A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins. To up the fun factor, there will also be seasonal trend setting shades.
The new formula does not skip on performance! The enamels are streak-free, and dry to a high gloss finish. When used together with the same line of Base and Top coats, they are chip resistant for seven days of normal wear.
For the Summer 2013 collection, there are nine limited edition shades with yummy names: 70° and Sunny, Summer in the City, Splish Splash, Hula Skirt, Juiced Up, Pinkini, Grape Ice, Hot Date and Strappy Sandals. These shades are inspired by the colourful popsicles that are popular during the summer months, and we are sure that bubba will be as fascinated with them as much as you do!
And with A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins painted on your digits, Bubba and you can both give a stylish wave goodbye to itching skin.
A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins by Clinique retails at S$22 each, and available at Clinique counters.
