Manicure Monday – Scotch Naturals

I was sent a lovely hamper from Boutique Vegan last week including this Detox Pack* by Scotch Naturals. I’ve got a full post on Boutique Vegan including many of their other products next week. But basically it’s an online shop selling all things vegan; whether it be cosmetics, food, pet food or washing up liquid they’ve got it.

Their Scotch Naturals Detox Pack contains a Base Coat (Sticky Base Coat*), Top Coat (On The Rocks*) and a nail colour of your choice. I chose Seething Jealousy*. It comes in a really well presented box too. I think it would make a lovely gift.

I prepared my nails using No7’s Nail and Cuticle Cream then painted them with the Sticky Base Coat. This was a bit different than any base coat I’d tried before, obviously due to the sticky factor. This isn’t a polish that you can wear on it’s own, it doesn’t actually dry but it’s meant to work better with your water based polish, making it last much longer – it does. I then painted my nails with the colour in Seething Jealousy. I did find that this didn’t cover my nails as much as some polishes do and I had to use three coats to get to this desired effect although the ‘natural factor’ makes it worth it and lasts forever once it’s on your nails.

One thing I was so impressed with was how quickly this polish dried. Seeing as I’d done three coats I thought I wasn’t going to be able to touch anything for at least an hour but it dried in minutes, literally. It was dry to the touch within no more than 5 minutes. I’ve never known a polish like it. I finished of this nail art look with my ‘go-to’ top coat, Orly Tough Cookie as this gives my nails such a wonderful shine. I’ve had this colour on my nails for nine days now and not one chip. I’m already deciding which colour I want to add to my Scotch collection next.

 

Have you ever used Scotch Naturals polishes? Which is your favourite colour?
