Scotch Naturals: Reviews from our Nail Polish Snob
This is our Shopgirl Liz. Going on her 7th year at Revival, our Visual Coordinator (she cooks up all our gorgeous windows) is a ham, a fantastic stylist, AND our resident nail polish snob. A fan of the self manicure since her Def Leopard-loving teen years, Liz has high standards- especially when it comes to nail polish.
As soon as the non-toxic, water-based Scotch Naturals arrived at Revival, Liz to gave them a whirl. Here are 3 of her faves (Liz purchased all 3 which is the highest recommendation of all!) and a few application tips.
1. Canal St. Daisy: "A GREAT coral. Lovely for summer pop, and especially good for those with fair complexions."
2. Paisley Martini: "Super fun bright pink, like an electric fuschia. It also matches Fuchsia Flash from Smashbox, my go-to 'night out' lipstick." (available at Buzz Salon)
3. Caleigh: "Such a nice blue! Caleigh matches the lighter blue wash of my fave spring jeans."
***P.S. they also match Revival's bestselling high-waisted denim shorts from Dear Creatures!
Since Scotch Naturals are water-based, used Scotch's base coat, 2-3 coats of polish, and finish with a top coat.
Non-toxic downside: "Usually the toxic odor keeps my cats away while the polish is drying, but with these no such luck."
Luckily, Scotch's acetone-free nail polish remover also removes cat hair.
All nail polishes, base coat, & top coat - $15 per
Nail polish remover- $12
