Paint and Peel

Little Ondine Review
There's everything to love about painting your nails, from the therapeutic process of applying, to the glee at looking down and seeing your immaculate mani wrapped around your pen.  However, if there's anything that will dissuade me from changing my colour more regularly, it's the gruelling process of removing the nail polish.  The smell, the mess, the monotonous swipe after swipe - ugh.  So, when Little Ondine got in touch to introduce their easy peel-off nail colours (Boom c/o and Smack c/o), I was a lot of things; sceptical, curious, but most of all.. excited!

Little Ondine Review

Little Ondine Review


Natural Ingredients

Easy Peel-Off

Odour Free

Quick Drying


The 'thing' that sets Little Ondine apart from the rest is the ability to peel off their nail colours in a matter of seconds, making terrible-smelling nail varnish removers a thing of the past.  The science behind it is that their formula is made with water and natural resin which 'simply forms a colour layer on your nail'.  You're advised to thoroughly clean your nails before applying any of their shades, apply a couple of layers (two applied in these images) and clean the edges before they have time to dry in order to prevent early-peeling.  

There really is a lot to like about the brand and especially as they have such a vast catalogue of colours.  As striking as I find this orange shade (Boom), I've got to admit neon yellow (Smack) isn't my favourite.  I've currently got my eye on a couple of their calmer shades at the moment including Mr. Sandman and the ever-popular Vegas Baby.  Ooh, metallic..
