Eve Snow Nails
I’m having a little moment with Eve Snow Nails thanks to their autumn winter shades, BangBang (grey) and Kamikaze. I love a steely grey nail and this one has enough metallic that it doesn’t look too flat, but at the same time, it’s not overly shimmery.
The formula is impressive – the right side of thickness for the brush and the polish, actually, and a beautiful shine on the finish. Eve Snow nail polish contains Ginkgo Biloba, Vitamin E and Argan Oil, which I’d like to think adds a conditioning dimension to the polish, but to be honest, unless I used only this brand, I’d be unable to tell in the short term. However, it’s more than many have bothered to put in, so if your nails are in poor condition or dry out easily, it’s well worth checking out.
The brand has recently added nail care to their line-up – I’ve tested out the Aqua Nail Exfoliation Scrub, which in theory should be brilliant, but in practise is a little too ‘aqua’ and not enough exfoliation. I like the idea of exfoliating cuticles, but this product is too gentle really to be effective. The micro-beads are water soluble, and the formula contains marula oil, B complex, aloe vera and Horsetail extract (apparently helping to prevent dry and brittle nails). The Elderflower Cuticle Oil, on the other hand, is gorgeous – it feels instantly nourishing on my nails and smells much nicer than other oils although I’m not sure I would have guessed it at elderflower! There is a SuperFood Nail Mask that I’m waiting to try – the whole idea of exfoliating, masking and moisturising for nails is one I really like – Eve Snow is giving nails the skin care treatment – and I could while away a happy evening doing a facial on my fingers!
You can find BangBang and Kamikaze for £14 in M&S – they’re not on-line yet. Grr..
