Be oh so pretty with PRITI NYC polish

PRITI NYC POLISH: Castle Cactus and Red Parrot Tulip

PRITI NYC POLISH: Castle Cactus and Red Parrot Tulip

There’s nothing quite as uplifting as being able to look at your nails and see prettiness. The Beauty Info Zone ladies are basking in prettiness with PRITI NYC Polish sent from Good Earth Beauty. We both were already fans of PRITI NYC but now the fans have been blowing with 1 treatment and 3 beautiful shades. We’ve previously shared neutrals and brights and updated pastels so there’s much to be found in these vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty free line. They name their polishes after similar colored plants and flowers which we find enchanting.

Castle Cactus #593 is not a typical Marcia shade. I don’t wear teals or greens often but this is such a soft color and has the requisite shimmer that I love. This was such a pleasure to wear. There’s a mix of teal and green to create this stunner.

It wore beautifully for 7 full days without a chip in sight. I enjoyed this shade so much more than expected and look forward to wearing it again.

RED PARROT TULIP:

The second polish I have is Red Parrot Tulip #329 which is a beautiful creme polish that glides on. There’s no pooling in my cuticle area even when I apply it myself. The description “deep orange opaque red” is absolutely perfect.

This is a shade that is perfect 365 days of the year and will be a stunner for a pedicure. The color is rich and with 2 coats is fully opaque. It doesn’t stain which many polishes this deep can.

LISA CHOSE Soy Cuticle Oil with Geranium and Morning Glory 668

Priti NYC Cuticle Oil

Soy Cuticle Oil with Geranium

I actually took one look at my nails and grabbed the Soy Cuticle Oil with Geranium instead of a color…the winter just ravages my skin and cuticles.  I needed this oil so badly…it instantly softened all the rough edges and after about three days I had significantly less issues with hangnails.  Thank goodness!

I don’t normally go for blue polish but this one was so pretty I couldn’t resist.  It’s a lovely metallic silvery blue shimmer.  I don’t think I have any pastel blue shimmer polishes so this is definitely a welcome addition to my collection.Priti NYC Morning Glory 668Priti NYC Morning Glory 668Priti NYC Morning Glory 668Priti NYC Morning Glory 668

One coat is rather sheer, so it takes two coats to become opaque.  It wears extremely well.  I actually forgot to put on a topcoat, and two coats lasted an entire week before needed one to freshen it up.

How can you beat a natural nail polish? We love that Priti Polishes are safe, non-toxic, and have absolutely no toluene, formaldehyde, or DBP’s. The 12.6 ml. bottle the house the polishes are completely recyclable. Plus all the other fab features:  fast drying, chip resistant, non-yellowing, contain a UV inhibitor, and glossy durability.

The Soy Cuticle Oil with Geranium, Castle Cactus, Red Parrot Tulip, and Morning Glory certainly float our boats!  Head over to Good Earth Beauty and see which Priti NYC Polishes are pretty perfect for you.
