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.

3 essential neutral nail polishes from PRITI NYC

PRITI NYC Ginger Snap Orchid, Moss Campion, and Nodding Lilac

PRITI NYC Ginger Snap Orchid, Moss Campion, and Nodding Lilac

A must-have in your beauty collection?  Some fabulous neutral nail polishes.  My partner Marcia tends to live a bit more on the ‘wild side’ of polish shades for manicures, but even she goes neutral once in a while.  Me?  I am a mostly neutral girl with the occasional venture into color.  I am always on the lookout for neutral shades that are pretty but not boring, and PRITI NYC recently sent us a few colors that are now some of my favorites.

Priti neutrals 5

I have a few rules for my neutral nail polishes.  First, they can’t be too brown or yellow.  A few days of wear and those kinds of shades just start looking dirty.  Second, they can’t be boring.  Neutral doesn’t have to be a yawn-fest.  I put a lot of time and money into manicures, so I am not interested in nail polish that makes my nails completely disappear.  PRITI NYC is a stand out nail polish line for me because every shade I have tested goes on smooth without streaks and lasts for at least two weeks without fading or chipping.

PRITI NYC Nail Polish ($15) is 5-free, vegan, non-toxic, and free of toluene, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and camphor.  PRITI NYC also works with Chemwise to recycle polishes safely.

PRITI NYC Ginger Snap Orchid

1.  Ginger Snap Orchid is probably my most favorite neutral nail polish ever.  It is an opaque light creamy nude with a hint of lilac.  It has very subtle shimmer that is just so delicate and pretty!

PRITI NYC Moss Campion

2.  Moss Campion is one of those fabulous neutrals that belongs in every collection.  It is an opaque creamy light taupe that applies like a dream and looks edgy and cool without being ‘in your face’.

PRITI NYC Nodding Lilac

3. Nodding Lilac is from the Autumn in Chile collection. This opaque soft lilac has a touch of grey, and is really beautiful.  I wore this shade for a month straight and never got tired of it!

If my picks aren’t quite your style, take a look at the PRITI NYC website and check out their 100+ shades available.  Some of you are lucky enough to have a store nearby that carries this line, but if not you can find it online at www.pritinyc.com.  – Lisa

Priti NYC, a nail polish company to be reckoned with

Today I have another Priti NYC nail polish that I think is absolutely beautiful. Priti NYC uses themes when they do collections and Bushwick Red is from their New York Fashion Week collection. It was created especially for one of the couture houses, Harbison. Priti NYC_Harbison_Bushwick Red

Priti NYC worked with Charles Harbison and created this beautiful red cream polish to complement his spring collection. I was thrilled when Priti NYC sent me this for review. The bad news is that this sold out almost instantly, the good news is that even though this is limited edition they are hoping to bring it back to their website.

Priti NYC polishes, in my experience, apply smoothly without pooling at the side of my nails. The colors, especially this red, stay true without fading. The good news is how long lasting they are. After a week of wearing this I went to my nail tech and she was amazed that my nails looked as perfect as when freshly applied.

My pictures are actually after 6 days of wear since I had no sun to take pictures. I had tip wear but just the very tips that I almost always get. I really could have waited another week to change polish but I love my manicures too much to do this.

I consider all of you who live near a shop that sells Priti NYC polish to be very lucky since you’d get to see these limited edition polishes and as many of the over 100 shades that Priti has created. For the rest of us we’ll have to stick with buying online. Bushwick Red is a perfect fall and spring color with its bright creaminess. Have you tried any polishes from Priti NYC? If not you are due for a treat. — Marcia

PRITI NYC Polish takes us to the Bahamas (we wish)

priti bahamasHow would you like to spend your summer with PRITI NYC? You can do that with these 4 gorgeous nail polishes that were brought out in May of 2013. Marcia and Lisa will only be spending part of the summer with PRITI NYC since we were sent 2 of these beautiful colors from the Bahamas collection to share with you but we’d be thrilled to spend the rest of the summer with them.

PRITI NYC is a new company for us and it’s been fun to learn about them. The word “priti” in Sanskript means things like “out of satisfaction”, “with love” or “pleasurable sensation”. We felt all three of these when we used this Cruelty Free, Organic line of nail polish. PRITI NYC is 5 free and vegan. The brand was created by Kim D’amato during her pregnancy. She wanted to live an organic lifestyle yet she couldn’t find nail products that she felt were safe for her at that time. Voila – PRITI NYC was born. And now we can share some of the beauty of this line of polishes with you. Polishes sell for $13.50 each but they also have a great selection of past limited edition polishes for $9.99 too.

LISA’S POLISH:

Marcia and I were sent a gorgeous rose and a stunning blue to review. I chose PRITI’s Hedge Hog Rose partly for the name which I love but mostly because I love this type of color. This is not your typical rose as you can see, it’s much more vibrant and exciting. This is not my mother’s idea of “rose” but it sure is mine.

Hedge Hog Rose wore so beautifully on me. It lasted through days of packing for a trip, cleaning, and my daughter’s birthday party (which was wild with a group of 9 year olds!!). I am looking forward to wearing this soon as a pedicure too since the color is one I’ll continue to enjoy.

MARCIA’S POLISH:

When Lisa said she wanted the rose polish I was secretly thrilled because Baby Blue Eyes was calling my name. (It has nothing to do with the fact that my adorable grandson has big blue eyes – or does it??).

I love the color blue and when I’m not wearing black I’m almost always wearing blue. This is a bright blue like the sky on the prettiest day of the year. It attracted attention but only in a positive way. You couldn’t help noticing this against my pale skin. It’s soft yet vibrant. Different lights brought out different shades in this too. (My pictures were taken under bright indoor light which accounts for my yellow skin.)

This cream polish not only applied like a dream in two coats but it lasted for one solid week without showing any wear and tear. Even the tips of my nails looked like new at the end of the week and my nail tech was duly impressed. This too will make an amazing pedicure shade that will last a long time.

The best news – through July 26th PRITI NYC is on sale for 30% off through their website. It’s their summer sale and you don’t want to miss it.

Now that we know about PRITI NYC we might become addicted to these polishes. One of the most interesting things we learned is that PRITI NYC works with Chemwise to recycle polishes safely. That’s amazing and we are the ones impressed!
