About Nail Polish

Earlier times have seen vegetable dyes and hennas used to decorate and protect nails, but we have now chemical solutions serving the same purpose. And they are long-lasting too. Apart from ingredients, a lot more other things have also changed with fashion and social media influence. With so many options, what you need before buying nail polish is an information palette directing you to the right product. 

We all know that nail polish is a product to decorate or protect our nails, but history has something more to tell. You would be fascinated by knowing that the colour of the nail polish used to determine the rank and dynasty in China where these polishes were first produced. The colour of high society is different shades of red, whereas nude or light colours is for others. The history we are talking about goes back to 3000BC, and if we come to the present scenario, the evolution is mesmerising. We have nail art as a legitimate profession wherein artists come up with their creative ideas every now and then. From nail art, fake nails, extensions, acrylics, manicure kits, and even more products, nail paints stick to their purpose in a more advance way. 

Chemical composition of nail polish

This is indeed a technical thing, and buying nail paints does not have anything to do with its chemical composition. But knowing it would make you more aware while reading the ingredients, and you can even justify the price tag. For example, not all pigments are of the same price value, or the quality of plasticisers can determine the longevity of the polish. So, let’s start with the basic composition first. The very basic nail polish consists of nitrocellulose dissolved in butyle acetate or ethyl acetate. Nitrocellulose creates a smooth surface on the top, and ethyl acetate gives the thickness and lets it dry. Then, plasticisers are added to make the polish crack or chip less. Then, pigments are added for colours, and some polish even has glitters in it. 

From base to matte nail polish

Some of you are good with applying one coat of nail pigment because you change the colour often. Some of you want your polish long-lasting. So, depending on your needs, there are different types available in the marketplace. You can first choose to have a transparent base coat, which has many types. You can choose them for the longevity of your polish, or you can choose them to protect your nails and strengthen them, which is necessary if your nails are in bad health. Next, you can choose the pigment you want. After that, it is time to put the best gel nail polish that makes your coat last for two weeks without chipping. Lastly, if you want a matte finish, you can opt for matte polish. All in all, these are the four nail polishes out of which you can choose the ones you want and omit the rest.

Fashion and nail polish colours

Fashion, trends, and social media is currently influencing buyers to do experiments with their nail polishes. One of the experiments other than designs and nail art is to use different combinations of colours. Well, fashion comes up with new colours every season, and it makes sense to have them on your nails too. Even if you are the one having a liking towards nude colours only, you can find multiple different variants in the colour palette. For example, white and clear base were the only colours used when french polish nails hit the trend list. But now, you can literally paint the tips with any colour matching or contrasting your dress. It seems so obvious that nail art has levelled up its game more than you think. If you agree, it would be really awesome to check out nail polishes for sale.

Breathable nail polish

The difference between regular and breathable nail paints is that the breathable ones are porous and permeable. Since these kinds have launched in the market, there have been debates about their existence. The first reason is that nails get their nutrition from the bloodstream, not the air. So, having a porous film doesn’t produce any positive effects. However, they still participate in maintaining overall nail health. These types of polishes even have religion’s attachment, also known as halal nail polish in the Islamic Faith. Its porousness allows those who wear this polish to participate in Wudu, a pre-prayer cleansing ritual.

Tips on how to buy Nail polish online

Buying nail polish online in the UAE is more than just finding the perfect shade. Well, shopping for nail paint may seem easy, but it is not, especially when you are conscious and socially aware of your responsibility towards buying chemical products. We are sure you are a responsible buyer, and hence we have compiled some fine points for you to consider before buying a nail coat.

  • Odour check – First thing first, do not go for any strongly scented nail product. It will not just harm your nails but can also be choking on you and the people around you. But what to buy? Well, nail paints of good quality will have a sweet scent that is neither unpleasant to smell and is not harmful as well.
  • Packaging test – Do check the bottle of the nail polish whether it has written all the ingredients and the directions to use. If not, consider not buying that product at all as some local products use cheap ingredients that can be sensitive to use.
  • Shades and hue – Even in the old days when you used to buy things from physical stores, you had encountered situations when the shade tend to become different when applied at home. This happens even though you have used the tester in the store. The only solution for this is to check the colour code and scrutinise it through some research text and videos.
  • Matt or gloss – This is one difficult option to choose from because both look appealing. You can still make gloss shades to look matte but not vice versa. Either you can have both the variants of single shade or different shades in your collection.
  • Size of the bottle – Many of you get bored with one shade soon, while others have on favourite shade for years. And that favourite remains the same. So, depending on the frequency of application, you can buy the size so that the bottle doesn’t wear out.

The tips we just mentioned might not be all, or you know it already but having a list handy while buying makes your shopping convenient. Other than that, having a list of brand names would be useful too. Some of the reputed brands include Essie, Maybelline, Deborah, Dior, and Chanel. You can find all of them or even more at our online shops.  If you do not want to begin your shopping drive with a specific drive, you can just hop on to our Hand and Footcare section and see what you got.

Question & Answer

Is nail polish flammable?

Yes, nail polishes do contain flammable ingredients. However, once the polish is dried, it is a very low safety hazard. Still, you must read the ingredients and instructions very carefully to know the intensity of the chemicals’ flammability. There are also products available in the marketplace that are not flammable at all, but you need to compromise on other factors. Yes, because of one ingredient available in your nail paints bottle, the product becomes flammable. However, the misshape with flammable products that we have observed is a few and that too due to lack of awareness. Understand the product before buying, and leave no reason for complaints thereafter.

Does nail polishes expire?

Yes, they do expire! An average lifespan of a nail paint bottle is 24months, after which it becomes lacy. Some of you keep the bottle hydrated by adding nail polish remover if you find it expiring. The outside climate also influences the lifespan. Too much humid, cold, or hot atmosphere twist the chemical formation inside the bottle and make it expire soon. If you live in such extreme temperatures, you would be better be with small portions. So, buy small bottles so you can finish them before it gets worse. Or even if you are not someone who wears nail polish daily, you can buy small portions.

Which nail polish last longer?

You should probably go for some top brands if you want a longer stay. Some of the brands include Chanel and Essie. Both are the top manufacturers with proven stay, and that too remains unfaded. However, if your work involves roaming outside in the scorching heat, the nail polish may fade then. When you explore the products, emphasise a long stay if you truly want one. You can read the specifications to look out for similar features. Additionally, you can also buy a protective coating to extend the stay.
