Just when you think you know every nail polish brand under the sun you get an email and realize you're wrong. I first heard of Tip Top nail polish brand when they sent me a message asking me to review their polishes. And I accepted the offer. Three nail polish shades and a nail treatment for my honest opinion. You got it!
Let me tell you right away - I suck at reviewing nail treatment products. I have to use them regularly for a longer period of time to tell you about the results and I just fail at that. Especially now when I'm not using base coat at all. Polish, maybe a layer of top coat and I'm good to go. If I ever try out this Tip Top Miraculous Results Nail Build thing properly I'll let your know about it.
Nail Build Ingredients: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Phthalic Anhydride/Trimellitic Anhydride/Gylcols Copolymer, Isopropyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Adipic Acid/Fumaric Acid/Phthalic Acid/Tricyclodecane Dimenthanol Copolymer, Silica, Glycerin, Aqua, Butylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Flour Extract, Hypnea Musciformis Extract, Methylparaben, CI 77891.
I did try the polishes though. =) I hoped for darker (my kind of) shades, but these are the ones I got:
Tip Top, Pot-O-Berries, 2 coats
Tip Top, Rocky Road Glitter (over Pot-O-Berries), 2 coats
Tip Top, Sexy Bikini, 2 coats
WOW, I don't even know where to start... As I already mentioned, I never heard of Tip Top brand before. The first thing I did after receiving their e-mail was searching info about them on the internet. Without much luck. They have a Facebook page, but that's not enough for me since I'm not really using FB myself. Their website however is currently under construction. That means I still haven't seen their range of colors, products and prices. Too bad. That's the first and most important thing for all customers and I hope they'll fix it soon.
About the polishes: They come in cute little 10 mL bottles and are free of Formaldehyde, Dibutylphthalate (DBP), Toluene and Camphor. So - the polishes are big 4 free! Polishes have flat and flexible brushes that are an absolute dream to work with. They're not bushy, none of them was wonky or stiff. Perfection. Just like the formula - great consistency, not goopy or too runny. And the best thing: the polishes are opaque in 2 coats. Drying time is fast, since the formula isn't thick and you only need 2 coats. Overall I'm SO impressed with these polishes, I can't even tell you. I don't know if all the shades are this good or if I just got the shades which were picked very carefully. I only know that I would love too see/have more of these. Plus, I'd love to be able to get more information on Tip Top Nails. So, please, dear Tip Top people, take care of this - your polishes are way too good to not be known.
Where can you find them? (hopefully)
