Get ready nail polish lovers! Today I have an exciting review and giveaway on Authority Cosmetics nail lacquer. After realizing that my love of polish and continuous manicures was wreaking havoc on my nails and causing them to peel, I decided to search for brands that used fewer chemicals.
Authority Cosmetics offers 10 gorgeous shades of lacquer that are free of: formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, camphor and formaldehyde resin making them less toxic and a safer choice.
These nail lacquers come in cute packaging and the bottles are large! You can find colors for any season or occasion and there is a nice selection of vibrant, fun shades to choose from.
I found that some of the shades do stain heavily while others don't stain at all. I recommend applying a base coat, two coats of lacquer and a top coat. The formula is wonderful and not prone to those pesky little air bubbles which I find frustrating. The polish is easy to work with and the brush is standard size but good quality. I like that the colors dry quickly and touch-ups are a breeze.
The shades are rich and apply beautifully opaque and glossy. In sunlight, they make my nails standout and look fabulous! With a good top coat the lacquers can last quite a while before chipping.
Saint Valentine is a deep, vibrant red suitable for everyday wear and as the name indicates perfect for Valentine’s Day. Red lacquer is classic and never goes out of style. This is one of my favorite shades in the line!
Paradise is a light, milky sky blue that reminds me of Easter and spring in a bottle!
Gumdrop is a beautiful, true pink great for all seasons and everyday wear. This color is also pretty for a bright pedicure.
Disco is a bright lime green that just screams summer fun!
Authority Cosmetics also offers a metallic collection and the shades can be purchased separately or at a group rate. This set of polish is deeper than the shades above and have a stunning duo-chrome effect.
Each polish retails for $14 and the metallic collection is on sale right now for $35.
Enter for your chance to win these TWO gorgeous nail lacquers!
