Nail varnish for sensitive skin? Really? Hmn … Apparently, in the course of an average day, you’ll touch your face many dozens of times, and the chemicals in a “normal” nail varnish can irritate the thin and easily inflamed skin around your eyes, causing reactions and irritation. I can’t say I’ve ever noticed this, despite having such sensitive skin around my eyes that 95% of eye creams are unbearable on my skin, in all honesty, but Clinique have brought out a range of “gentle” nail varnishes designed without many of the potential irritants of other nail varnishes.
I splashed out recently and bought the shade “Indie Rock”, which is a lovely silvered mid-brown, which is going to get a LOT of wear on my toes this summer (my toes have been wearing purple varnish on and off for the last two years now, so it’ll make a nice change!), lasting power is very good, and the above picture is just two thin coats.
Whether it’s good for sensitive skin or not, I don’t know, but I do know good polish, and this is indeed, good polish.
