9. Visibly brighter, more radiant nails
10. No formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, or xylene
Currently available in 14 varying colours, there is a good mix of neutral and unique hues in the range:
- Shop Girl—Opaque, soft beige crème. A lovely lass hired to sell merchandise in a shop.

- Flusher Blusher—Opaque, fuschia pink crème. To blush as if you’ve just been caught doing something naughty…
- Loverly—Opaque, bubblegum pink crème. Lovely with a bit of cockney lilt.
- Broody—Opaque, raspberry crème. In the mood for love… and babies.
- Fancy—Opaque, lilac crème. Brit slang for having a mad crush on something or someone.
- Chat Up—Opaque, deep blue crème. To spark romance with a clever wit.

- Smashing!—Opaque, siren red crème. Brit slang for terrific or first rate.
- Her Majesty’s Red—Opaque, true red crème. A regal red worthy of the queen.
- Afters—Opaque, blackberry crème. Brit slang for dessert…although we don’t always wait until after.
- Mum’s The Word—Opaque, rosy nude crème. A Shakespearean term that means to keep quiet.
- Over The Moon—Opaque, warm grey crème. Brit slang for extremely pleased or happy.
- Ta-Ta!—Opaque, soft grey crème. A twee British expression used to bid farewell.
I’ve worn Broody for more than a week and love the depth of this raspberry crème, as well as the quick shine it offers with just two coats, as seen in the photo above.
It doesn’t have an ultra-laminated appearance on my nails probably because of my nail ridges but it becomes glossier and is more opaque with three coats (see the first photo in this post). I did not use a topcoat in both photos but you can imagine how much shinier the effect would be, with one.
I particularly like the self-levelling quality of this pigmented polish and how it smooths out my nail ridges, making them look more even. It doesn’t fade easily and keeps its richness and shine over the days, thanks to its shock-resistant polymer technology. It does chip gently as time passes but that’s par for course with the many varnishes I use (aka chore bane!).
And speaking of broody…
Expectant ladies: You will be glad to know that this is a 7-free formula; an excellent choice if you want to polish your nails during pregnancy. ;)
In Singapore, this nail lacquer retails at S$24 at Sephora stores island-wide.
