A few weeks ago, my nail of the week (NOTW: Reflective Emerald Green) was Inglot’s O2M #644 nail enamel.  I used the Inglot O2M Nail enamel, base and top coats.  I must say, I was impressed at the first application, but after a few days of wearing, unfortunately, my likes for this product faded.

MY THOUGHTS:

The nail enamel comes in 46 different shades (Click Here to view) from your neutrals and nudes, to fun, bright shades like blue, green and purples.  There’s something for everyone.

The color pay-off is great with one application, which was impressive, however, I still used two.  I loved how the polish looked after completing my manicure; my nails were super shiny, almost to the point that they were reflective.

 

Stained nails

 

My problem with this polish is that it didn’t last too long.  It began to chip after the 5th day.  I’m used to my polishes lasting over a week, closer to two weeks.  When I finally took the polish off, my nails looked dry, brittle, they flaked for days after, and were seriously stained.  Sucks that the base coat did nothing to protect my nails. Something I didn’t expect from a polish that claimed to be breathable.  I ended up cutting my nails down so that I can start over.  It also bubbled up some; however,  that didn’t bother me too much though since no one is really all up in my hands like that!

 

Stain on hand & thumb

 

The price ($14/bottle) of the polish for what it does is a turn-off.  I wouldn’t purchase unless they improve their formula, and it doesn’t cause the problems I experienced.

I do not recommend purchasing.

  1. I had the same issue with this polish – I feel like the base + top coat are a waste of time, it chips so fast! Mine didn't even last 5 days..more like 3-4

    • It is good to hear I am not the only one. I was excited to try it out too. Oh well. I guess everything INGLOT makes can't be great.

  2. This is sad! My nails have been stained from polish before, but I thought it was because the polish was cheap. They need to improve their base coats then if this is what happens.
