Beauty Review: Little Ondine Nail Polishes

I've been really wanting to try out Little Ondine for quite some time now. For those of you who don't know, Little Ondine is a nail polish brand with a difference - their polishes peel off! This idea was fantastic for someone like me. I can't wear nail polish any more as I'm not allowed to have it at work, to the extent that even a few little leftover specs would get me into trouble. Even before that was the case, I just hated getting the stuff off as it would take so long, especially if I wore something glittery, so I would basically just leave it on forever until it came off by itself - not a good look!

But at last, I decided to give Little Ondine a go, and picked out four colours.

 First up is Sorbet. I bought this one thinking it would be a nice subtle yellow colour - it's actually brighter than I expected it to be, to the extent that I only needed one coat of it! This is a really pretty shade, but definitely not a discreet one!

 Next up is Bang Bang. I wanted a vibrant pink, and that's exactly what I got! This is a very pretty pink and comes out exactly how you'd expect it to from the bottle. Again, I only really needed one coat of this to get it looking exactly how I wanted.

 Next up is Admiration, and honestly, I'm so disappointed by this colour. In the bottle the colour is absolutely beautiful - I couldn't be happier when I took it out and saw how pretty it was as it was exactly what I wanted. However, unfortunately this colour just doesn't show up all that well. I put on three layers and it still just wasn't showing up as well as it should which was such a disappointment as the bottle colour is so gorgeous.

Finally, we have Red Red Wine. I wanted this one as it looked like a really pretty Autumn colour. It's darker than I expected it to be so one layer is definitely enough, but an overall pretty colour though probably not for daily wear!

 I was pleased with these polishes overall as I wasn't really sure what to expect. They go on nicely, although do take quite some time to dry - though Little Ondine have always been upfront about this, they aren't something that you can put on when you're in a rush really as you'll inevitably get it all over everything!

 As for how well they come off? Pretty well. They can be quite hard to get a grip on, but when you do it peels off sort of like when you used to put glue all over your hands when you were a kid just so you could pull it all off again! Personally I had a little bit of trouble getting started with actually peeling them off, but that's almost certainly because I have no nails so find it hard to get it started - if you don't destroy your nails like I do, I don't think you'd have any problem with this. Once you've got a grip on it, the majority of time it peeled off in one go - only a few times did it leave random little bits to pull off. Either way, definitely much faster than having to go at it the old fashioned way!

All of these polishes cost me £8.40 each, with the exception of Bang Bang (the pink) which cost £9.20.

If you'd like to buy your own, you can do so through the Little Ondine website.
