Tip Top recently sent me their latest summer colours from their Nail Addict range to try out. This product range has been around for a few years, but was only available to the professional market – however, the good news is that this has changed and is now available to you and me for a mere R39.99!
On the nail from left:Deadly Salmon (best orange ever!), Fantasy, Pinkasso, Army Vibes.
Bottom left: Fantasy, Army Vibes, Smitten (this has a pretty sheen that camera doesn’t pick up), Bottom right: Deadly Salmon, Pyjama Party, Pinkasso.
I wasn’t expecting all that much as the price range was low and this often means a low quality product – so when I am proved wrong it’s always a good feeling – these colours are something pretty special. The selection I got sent was really gorgeous and on application they went on smoothly, have a good brush and wore well too. I think the best part for me is that these products are proudly South African and not tested on animals. Like all nail colours, I applied a base coat and top coat – however this should always be part of your routine.
The Tip Top ProGlide™ Brush (that I spoke of in the application) offers an innovative flat brush for perfect polish application which provides a smooth, streakless finish and holds more varnish for quicker application which delivers the professional results we are after. I found I only needed two coats of colour which makes the application fairly quick and hassle free.
