Skinfood Nail Vita BR608

15 Jun

After a week of glittery nails, I settled for a plain, nude nail polish because I have to attend a trade show for work. I still have quite a few unused nude nail polish and I chose my bottle from Skinfood. It’s called Skinfood Nail Vita BR608.

Colour: I call this colour, cappuccino, because it looks like one šŸ™‚ It’s light brown and almost nude.

Smell: It smells like a regular nail polish.

Consistency: It is a toss between runny and sticky which made application a breeze. It is a little sheer and I guess three coatings would give a creamier and opaque appearance. Ā I only used two with a top coat.

Brush: The brush is rounded and narrow (sorry, I forgot to take a picture).

Swatches:

Taken in different lightings

Staying Power: I was surprised that it did not chip even until the 6th or 7th day, albeit signs of cracks show which are hardly noticeable.

cracked but not chipped

Availability: It is available in Skinfood shops and counters in selected department stores. Skinfood products can be also ordered through online sellers based here in Thailand and anywhere else šŸ˜‰

Comment/s:Ā I haven’t worn a nude nail polish in a long time so I was surprised that I liked how it looked on my nails. My nails looked clean all the time and I feel such a lady, you know, prim and proper šŸ˜‰

Will I buy again/ Do I recommend?: Yes, especially if you are looking for an everyday work “wear” colour and quality is tops, too.

Have you tried this nail polish before? Care to share?

Happy weekend, everyone!

Cheers šŸ™‚

    I just found out that there is a Skinfood store a few hours north of me in California–I wonder if I can order anything from them. I’ve never tried anything from the brand but always read reviews about it on blogs! Count me curious for sure!

      Hi Becca, you should try Skinfood. I haven’t tried many makeup products but their different skincare lines are really interesting; the products I have tried worked for me. šŸ™‚

    I live in Laos and I just bought the exact same polish! I was also surprised that it was such good quality. I’m always a little hesitant to buy polishes of brands I don’t recognize (actually the only one here that I DO recognize is Revlon) so this was a nice surprise!

    Hi! I’ve read you post and yes, I am wearing a Nail Vita Nail Polish today! But the complete opposite of yours, I tried the black one. The weather’s just so gloomy that my nails deserves a black finish. Haha. :p

    anyway. I’ve come across this newly launched facebook site where I got my nail colors. You might want to visit them as well! šŸ™‚
