My Little Ondine | Lilac & Waltz

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend...I swear I just blinked and it flashed by so quickly! I have to admit that I didn't do as much as I probably would have hoped over the weekend, however, I am just feeling so exhausted lately! I think I am coming down with a cold or something *cries*.

One thing I love to do when I am partaking in my pamper routine is to give myself a manicure. Nothing starts off the week better than freshly painted nails and I can't even remember a time when I didn't have polish on my nails haha. A few months back I was contacted by the lovely Hollie (who I actually already knew outside of blogging) and she introduced Little Ondine to me. I have tried pretty much every brand of nail polish on the market so it was really exciting being given the opportunity to try something completely new. Little Ondine polishes are composed of natural resin, organic colourants and water. They source the best minerals from around the world to bring pure organic colour that give the polishes their smooth yet hydrating texture. For someone like me who is always rocking a nail polish, it was so refreshing to see a brand that was completely natural!

Firstly, I had the challenge of picking two shades out of their outstanding 80 shade collection...I'm not going to lie, it was quite difficult narrowing it down as they are all so gorgeous! I was staring at these pretty polish shades for a good hour or so just thinking of how they would be perfect for Instagram or Pinterest...ohh the brain of a blogger haha. Eventually, I came to the conclusion that I would go for a combination that I always turn back to...pastels and glitter! I opted for a beautiful pastel purple shade called Lilac* (£8.40) and a pastel multi-colour glitter called Waltz* (£11.00).

The formula itself is quite thick and gloopy...much like a gel polish formula. Even though the formulation wasn't like your typical polish (never judge a book by its cover) it applied so beautifully and effortlessly. As this was my first attempt using the polish I did notice that the overall application was a little streaky on some of my nails but overall the final product with two coats looked lovely and felt really comfortable on my nails. I don't know about you but whenever I paint my nails there is always that middle point where I am kind of stuck whilst my nails are drying. You will never have to worry about that with Little Ondine again...they believe that you should be spending your spare time showing off your nails and not waiting around for them to dry. As the formulation is water based your nails will be dry after a few minutes! The only thing they recommend after drying is to keep your hands and nails out of water for an hour or so...other than that you are good to go. They say that the polish should last up to a week after application and I would definitely agree with that. As this was my first attempt I did notice that on a few of my nails the edges were already coming away but it was nothing crazy and it didn't really bother the end of the day you can easily re-paint them on the go or remove them in a hurry if need be.

Another great thing about these nail polishes is the fact that you don't need any of your typical acetone or removers that you would usually use that can leave your nails slightly damaged and dehydrated. Little Ondine polishes can literally be peeled off! The only kind of negative that I found with this was the fact that I was sitting at my desk one afternoon (feeling quite stressed out) and I found myself peeling away at the polish! Although that was the case, I was literally amazed at how well the polish was coming off my nails. Just like Little Ondine mention, removing the polish was super easy and they were coming off in whole pieces!

Overall, I was really impressed with these polishes! They are quick drying (which I would love all polishes to be), they are odorless, all natural and super fun! I can't wait to add a few more to my nail polish collection. If you would like to check out the 80 different shade range you can do so via the official Little Ondine website or via Beauty Crowd. I really hoped you enjoyed this post, I would love to hear your thoughts on the nail polishes and if you would give them a try. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me via my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to ready every single comment...they really make my day!

P.S // I also filmed a brand new YouTube video over the weekend! It is a Lush haul so if you decided to pop by, grab a cup of tea, sit back, relax and enjoy! WARNING: There is a lot of glitter!

Lots of Love,
