INGLOT: The Review


Every now and then, A-L ladies like to dissect a brand. Like mad scientists, we like to form our conclusions based on three simple points.

Value for money?
How does the product work on your skin?
And does it actually work?

If we think a product is worthy of being used, we will tell you about it. On the latter, pretty packaging containing useless squishy white creams aren't good to anyone. In fact, they will most likely just gather dust in the back of your cupboard somewhere….and we certainly wouldn't want that!

We will test a brand and give you our honest opinion if it's any good. If we think you need to avoid it, believe you me, we will let you know.

This week we bring you a brand that has been building momentum for some time. INGLOT was founded over 30 years ago in a small town of Przemy?l, INGLOT Cosmetics is now one of the world’s leading manufacturers in colour cosmetics and has been making headway in producing the world's first 'breathable nail varnish'.

Our instincts were telling us we needed to give this one a whirl!

Take a breather….

We were lucky to try these out first hand. The packaging is minimal, bearing all the hallmarks of a luxury high end product with a price tag to match.

We tried a selection of polishes and found that you needed one coat and it dried fairly quick – we would recommend two coats. The shades we decided to go for are neutral and looked very chic.

Breathable: We trailed the O2M nail enamel which in the first instance, felt no different to any other normal nail polishes.

We loved the colour and it dried fairly fast. There are tonnes of shades to choose from within the INGLOT range from piercing ruby red to aqua blues and greens. They use a formula for the breathable enamel, which uses a polymer similar to what is used in contact lenses.

This means that water is able to pass through to the surface. I should add that we did use base and top coat. After a week, they hadn't chipped and didn't feel brittle unlike some other brands. INGLOT nail polish ranges from £8-£12.

It's definitely on the expensive side but we're not complaining. This is an excellent product and an investment that is worth it in the long run. So here's how we rate INGLOT nail enamel. One being pretty dire and 5 being the best….

Price: 4 out of 5
Does the product work: 5 out of 5
How does the product feel: 5 out of 5
