Shahnaz Loves Beauty

I love discovering new products and new brands. I got my hands on a few polishes from Toy Nail Polish a brand new nail polish brand to hit SA last month and I am loving the colours. The Colombian brand Toy which means Two of You started when a lady called Carolina Palapez decided to launch her own business and took the social media world by storm promoting thie brand and sharing tips, news and trends with her followers. The products are not tested on animals, free from commonly used toxic ingredients including formaldehyde, toluene, camphor and acetone. The bottles are made from recycled glass and the packaging is from bleach free craft paper.

Toy Nail Polish dries really quickly with the first coat in about 50 seconds and second coat in a minute and a half and then a top coat so Toy promise that your nail will be dry in about 7 minutes.

I tested out the Toy Maaji nail polish in Blueberry Moon seen below is a beautiful bright matt blue shade. The brush applies easily without any streaking and 2 coats is more than enough. I also love the idea that its economically friendly.
