My three year old daughter, Adisyn and I love to spend time together painting our nails. We have fun just trying out new colors; dark and light pinks, purples, blues, whites, oranges, greens and any other color we can get our hands on.
It’s a great way for her and I to interact, and I love when she looks at me and says “Oh, mommy- that’s so pretty” in her little toddler voice. It melts my heart. When Priti NYC sent the Grand Slam Kit, which consist of 4 beautiful colors- Adisyn and I were ready and raring to get to using it.
The colors we were sent are; White Ballet Dahlia (Glossy White), Peporomia Pixie (Dark Green), Barbarossa (Light Orange), and Miss Jeckyl (Bright Blue). The Grand Slam Kit is tennis inspired.
All of these colors are very beautiful and unique to anything I currently had in my collection. The names are different and very thought provoking. They are all very glossy, vibrant, and eye catching. The colors just glided onto the nails with no brush marks in sight!
This nail polish doesn’t chip easily, it held out to me washing dishes daily (2x daily most days). The nail polish dried almost instantly, which is very important when your painting a 3 year olds nails. It is also important when painting my nails because I don’t have time to wait several minutes because there is always something that I HAVE to be doing with 2 kids under 5 in the house. =)
The images on the bottle offer a classy, sophisticated design (which is PRITI NYC’s logo) and then the name of the polish at the bottom on a sticker. The brushes are thick enough to apply a good amount but not too thick as to get polish everywhere on your fingers. The brushes are thick and do not leave marks after the polish is dried.
The formula is actually very luxurious and thick- so one to two coats were enough to look very nice but not gooey and gunky like some polishes. They are all non-toxic and can be used on small children and expectant mothers, which is amazing.
There aren’t many nail polishes that have gone green. I had to avoid painting my nails during both of my pregnancies- I could only find polishes dripping with nasty chemicals.. so completely bare I went. Without ANY nail polish at all.
If you are pregnant or know someone who is and are looking for a great designer nail polish that is completely natural—this is IT! I wish I had known about it, I would have definitely rocked this during my pregnancies. I already had to avoid almost all makeup and hair products because my hair AND face were oily messes.. UGH! So- at least my nails would have looked pretty.
