100% Pure ‘5 ingredient free’ nail polish review

Hey guys, 

Continuing from my ‘3-5-10 ingredient free’ nail polish reviews, today’s blogpost is on 100% Pure’s nail polish in the shade Truffle, part of their ombre collection. I’ve tried a few 100% Pure products and they were either a hit or miss.

For my other 3-5-10 ingredient free nail polish reviews, check out the links below



Just to refresh, these 3-5-10 nail polishes do not contain the common carcinogenic chemicals that have been present in nail polishes and other cosmetic products for ages – only recently in the past 2-3 years have people started to become more conscious and aware of what they are using and the potential effects it could have on them.

Overall comments

The formula is surprisingly thin but consistent in consistency as there’s no clumping. However, as it is quite thin, it’s tempting to apply a large amount of nail polish but this will lead to a slower drying time and more chances of the finish of the nail polish to be dented. Instead, paint in singular layers – I needed about 3 layers to achieve an opaque finish.

What I really like about the packaging is how slim it is – I can just imagine how convenient and efficient it would be to slip a few in purses, clutches and bags.

I’ll definitely repurchase – currently Nourished Life is out of stock for most of their colours from their end of financial year sale.

Thanks for reading – any advice/feedback is greatly appreciated!
