For years I wished I was the girl with perfectly manicured nails every day. Beautifully filed, always painted and never chipped. That dream quickly faded when I totalled up the cost of having my nails done twice a month (they grow very quickly!) and once that reality hit home I started my search for a nail varnish that would last on my nails, while not chipping after just a day or so.
When I first tried the Temple Spa Nail Treats I first fell in love with the wide range of colours but as I looked further into the products and the brand itself I knew that these nail varnishes would be in my collection for a long time to come.
Temple Spa themselves are a British skincare and beauty brand that sell exclusively at Harrods and online. Though British their products are inspired by the Mediterranean and pack full of quality ingredients. If you’d like to know more about the company, I reviewed one of their face masks and went into further detail on the detail of the company there.
The nail varnishes are actually called ‘nail treats’ as they don’t just colour your nails, but give your nails a spa experience with their professional nail formulations. The nail colours are a treatment for the nails and provide an intense, quick-drying, high gloss colour whilst allowing the nail to breathe. Packed with vitamin E and calcium pantothenate, they’re free from the usual nail polish nasties.
My favourite colour to wear at the moment is this beautiful shade in which easily made it into my March Favourites.
And now to the important question… how long do they last on your nails? If you have a busy lifestyle where taking an hour out for your nails to dry is a real treat, then this could be the deciding vote for you…Well, I’m happy to say that they last a long time! If you’re willing to paint your nails how they should be painted (base coat, colour, top coat) then you should see at least 5 days worth of wear out of your nail treat. Should you then add a quick top coat every other day, you can see the colour last on your nails for a good week. I don’t know about you, but this was a game changer for me. Nail varnishes that I’ve used the the past will chip after just a couple of days, even with a base and top coat but I just don’t have time to repaint my nails more than once a week!
At £10 per nail treat they’re sat at the top end of the pricing spectrum but considering how long the polish lasts the price is well justified.
So, if you’re a busy, on the go kind of girl who loves looking well groomed but without spending too much time or money then the Temple Spa Nail Treats could be the perfect product for you.
Have you tried these nail treats before? Or do you have a favourite nail varnish collection that you’d recommend?
