Two Nail Varnish Brands That Nourish Your Nails

Two Nail Vanish Brands That Nourish Your Nails - 1
A lot of makeup products seem to offer additional benefits these days. Foundations and base products contain SPF and added skincare, we have lipsticks that moisturise our lips and mascaras infused with oils to nourish our lashes. Nail varnish is no exception, and I've been enjoying a couple of brands recently which, in addition to boasting lovely shades and formulation, also offer care and nourishment for your nails.

Sally Hansen Color Therapy

Readily available in most drugstores, the Sally Hansen Color Therapy range is one I started getting into at the beginning of this year. Like a lot of us, I'm a huge fan of wearing nail varnish and I'm more likely to be found wearing it than not. In fact, I often feel as though my outfit isn't complete unless my nails are done. Yet continually wearing varnish, and in particular the regular use of remover, can leave my nails feeling dry and brittle at times. The Sally Hansen Color Therapy varnishes contain argan oil, so they help to add moisture and nourishment back into your nails while at the same time giving them a coat of colour. There is a wide shade range available, but at the moment I'm loving creamy nudes like Re-Nude (my favourite) and the slightly more pink Blushed Petal. They give a beautiful gel-like finish and I'm looking forward to trying some of the brighter shades when summer comes.

Kure Bazaar

Kure Bazaar is not a brand I had heard of before a few weeks ago, but I was kindly sent three of their varnishes recently and I'm very impressed. The shades I have are Rose Snow*, a beautiful nude and my favourite at the moment (and the one you can see in the photo of my hand), Sunset*, a mid-pink that's perfect for spring, and finally, Catwalk*, a striking deep violet. Not only do these varnishes contain Vitamin E and Bamboo to strengthen and repair nails, they also boast a 90% natural formula and are free from some of the more harmful chemicals nail varnishes can contain, including Toluene, Formaldehyde and Parabens. They're not tested on animals and they're vegan too, which is something that more and more people are looking for these days.

With all these things left out (and replaced with unusual ingredients like cotton, corn, wheat and potatoes!) I was a little bit sceptical about how the Kure Bazaar polishes might apply, but I needn't have worried. The formula is smooth and creamy, and the finish is streak free with a lovely shine to it. The brand isn't cheap, but if you're looking for high performing natural nail varnishes with added nourishment for your nails, I definitely recommend it.

My nails are usually kept very short so I can't attest to whether or not these varnishes would help to stop splitting or breakage. However, I do feel that they've been looking that little bit healthier in between manicures. Add to that the fact that these are all beautiful colours with lovely finishes, and it's safe to say I'm going to be carrying on using them!

What's your go-to nail varnish shade right now?
