If like us you suffer from weak, brittle and dry nails from keeping up with the superluxe nail trend and overdosing on acetone nail polish removers, then look no further then Nailberry.
Founded by French-born Sonia Hully in 2008, the brand were one of the first to offer a toxic free nail polish with the removal of Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP and Camphor – the four ‘baddies’ as it were when it comes to promoting the growth of healthy nails.
But instead of stopping there after opening of her cult Knightsbridge salon where French je ne sais quois is met with New York efficiency, Hully went even further to give us manicure fiends a way to keep our talons painted in high pigmented colour all year around.
Incomes their revolutionary L’Oxygéné collection – the new speak for all things nail. The polishes offer something unseen of before with a breathable ‘skin’ that allows air and moisture to pass through the polish to result in healthier and happier nails. And if you thought a four-chemical free nail polish was extravagant, then you’ll be excited to learn that the L’Oxygéné alsointegrates UV filters to avoid discolouration of nails as well as avoiding the all to familiar sight of yellowing.
And while the beauty world are accustomed to new must have cosmetics, rarely do you find a product that does exactly what it says on the tin. One week of wearing the new L’Oxygéné polish and my nails still haven’t chipped (a rare occurrence taken the assault they get when I go for a swim) and are positively happy in their Candy Floss shade.
