Clinique Introduces Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skin

Clinique A Different Kind of Nail Enamel

It’s been a big season for Clinique, last month they dazzled us with launch of their CC cream that is still brightening even the dullest days, but now it’s time to give them a hand, literally so they can polish it with their new line of nail enamel. Of course this isn’t just any line of finger paint, Clinique is all about products that provide a beautiful solution. So what’s the problem you ask? Did you know on average a person touches their eyes 200 times a day? Well they do, and with that frequent amount of contact, the polish from certain nail enamels can cause irritation and even the allergen source for periorbital dermatitis. In an effort to decrease these unwanted reactions, six years of testing ensued and finally this month they were able to bottle up the magic and bring it to your local Clinique counter in 12 “go-to” colors and nine limited edition shades for summer 2013. The “go-to” colors include Red Red Red and Party Red: two of Clinique’s most adored lip shades now fit for the tips and toes!

Aside from the fact that this dermatologist tested, opthalmologist tested and PrettyConnected tested polish certainly is easy on the eyes {no bad reactions here and we did some extra touching just to make sure}, it was also allergy tested on 600 people, 12 times. As for the appearance, my manicure went un-chipped for a solid 5 days and by a week there were still only minimal imperfections. We played with the pigments and gave a few of the vibrant limited edition shades a whirl in front of the manicam.
