You might remember a month or so back I first blogged about the new nail varnish range launched by Clinique for sensitive skin, Clinique NEW A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins. I loved the idea of it, but I have to admit I wasn’t blown away with the shades I was reviewing. Well, just this morning a whole bunch of additional shades arrived in the post for me, completely by surprise, and they are GORGEOUS! Much more to my liking, and ideal for Summer!
Perfect timing actually, as my skin has been really sensitive at the moment and quite irritable, so hopefully now using these new varnishes will minimise further irritation from clawing away at my skin (nice thought, I know).
I did two coats of each shade, and they dried pretty quick. As I’ve only received them today I can’t vouch for how quickly these particular ones chip, but if I remember correctly from the last ones I’ve tried, they were just as impressive (if not better) as their bog standard non sensitive skin counterpart! A good 2-3 days of non-chip wear, possibly longer. Even though they’re glossy finish, and you could easily get away with them simply as they are, I do prefer the finish of a top coat and think Clinique may have missed a trick with not including one in the range?
Overall, I do think these shades are so vibrant and lovely, and am looking forward to wearing each colour on its own for near future manis – will blog them as I go!
