I give HJ Manicure’s Pink Bikini shade a big thumbs-up and would definitely recommend it to all my friends! I simply adore the fact that all these non-toxic nail polishes are free of Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and Camphor (all preservatives that can be linked to cancer and skin irritations). Nevertheless, my favourite feature about this nail polish is the fact it doesn’t have an overbearingly strong scent. Therefore, on a couple of occasions I felt I was able to paint in nails in public places, without affecting anyone else.
The first thing I noticed about this polish was the bottle. I thought it was really sleek and modern-looking and when unscrewed I found the brushes to be long, thin and most importantly, not bristly – consequently, the polish glided over my nails with great ease. I liked how opaque the formula was and found the appearance on my nails pretty after just one application (however I preferred using two coats in order to create a more finished, polished look as well as making the colour stand out better!)
Pink Bikini was the perfect colour choice for me; as I’m quite a girly-girl but I’m looking forward to trying out other HJ Manicure shades in the future – especially the nude/neutral tones such as lace, peach blossom and coco for a more sophisticated and classic look.
