Clinique A Different Nail Enamel is a new nail polish for sensitive skin users. According to Clinique a person touches their eyes an average of 200 times a day!
I always tell myself I won’t touch my eyes, face, or mouth any given day. This isn’t because I have sensitive or blemish prone skin but it is because I want to lessen the chances of getting ill especially around flu season. But that’s incredibly difficult!
If you’re a sensitive or you have eyes that get irritated easily Clinique’s new A Different Nail Enamel is formulated to not irritate eyes.
Did you know nail enamel can irritate eyes? I didn’t. The thought never even crossed my mind! Fresh manicures can potentially irritate sensitive eyes that’s why Clinique created A Different Nail Enamel.
A Different Nail Enamel ($16) was created for sensitive skins and eyes and is dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested for such skin types. I don’t have sensitive skin myself and I happen to be a biter….! So typically I reserved polish for my toes…but I thought I’d swatch (swatches are done on my arm with tape) some of the shades that I got to try out.
The formula has quite a lovely high shine and is quite quick drying. There’s also an Enamel Base and Top Coast available for sensitive skins. These are available in nine limited edition shades (all swatched in this post) for Summer 2013 and twelve other shades that will be added to Clinique’s permanent range of products.
Splish Splash, Juiced Up, Pinkini, Grape Ice
Strappy Sandals, 70’s and Sunny, Hula Skirt
Summer in the City
Clinique’s popular and iconic Black Honey shade makes an appearance as a nail polish in this collection as well.
Unfortunately I do not have an ingredients list for the polish but Clinique has always been a brand of products that caters to those with sensitive skin types. I’m unsure if you’ve personally experienced issues with irritated eyes after polish application but if you happen to fall into this category perhaps A Different Nail Enamel is for you!
A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins will premier at Clinique counters in May 2013 and will be available online at clinique.com
