Sula's Paint & Peel Nail Polishes Review

Hope your mothers day went well! :) Here is the review on Sula's Paint & Peel nail polishes. So first things first.. having not so great experiences with nail polish remover (ugh the smell...) I definately found this concept VERY appealing. Heres some pictures to start it off.

However, once i opened the nail polish (by the way, SUPER cute packaging.. and the lids have that rubbery feeling for extra grip!), but i found that the brush was way too close to the top of the lid making it kind of harder to apply. However, the nail polish itself is very fast drying but can be a bit streaky. Here's some swatches.

One layer applied - a bit streaky
two layers.. better but still a bit streaky

And then... it was time for peeling! I think overall, it was not as good as i imagined. Although i loved not being able to use any nail polish remover, i find that it often peeled in little pieces creating a bit of a mess on my table. Also, after peeling.. theres kind of some white residue on the nail. However, it was pretty easy and quick, so it would be nice for days when i dont have any nail polish remover on me (for example.. when i stay over at my boyfriends house). Oh, and for those who are wondering.. I also tried removing it with nail polish remover and it works just fine!

What they say:
This collection of good-for-you hues is inspired by what’s happening on the street and the runway - colors that are hard to come by but not to remove! Touch ups are a snap with the fast drying formula. For extended wear, use water-based Permanent in clear or metallic.

  • Fast drying
  • love the idea of no nail polish remover!
  • quick and easy to peel
  • Can be a bit streaky
  • the brushes were a bit too close to the lid making it hard to apply
  • the peeling can be somewhat messy
  • available in smaller sizes than normal - less product to use
  • short lasting power.. peels easily (which i guess is what its supposed to do!)
Overall: B-
This is definately something new and fun to try.. but i dont think i would use it to replace any of my other nail polishes. The short lasting power and the streakyness is whats mainly holding it back for me. However, if you have the extra money and want to try something new, the concept is definately interesting. But if you're looking for a more solid nail polish, i'd probably skip this and go with a different one. Have any of you guys tried these? How'd it work out for you? :)

Yups, the streakiness is definitely a no-no. However, I give the company a plus for trying to create a peel-off formula for polish. :D
