Have you heard about Inglot O2M Breathable nail polish? I’ve been a fan of Inglot Cosmetics for a while now, particularly their Freedom System, but I’d never tried their polishes. So when, one sunny afternoon, I stumbled upon an Inglot makeup counter and saw their impressive nail polish range, I immediately took some for a test drive. With so many beautiful colours and interesting finishes, it was a difficult choice.
I wish could’ve got more but, contrary to their makeup range, Inglot polishes aren’t cheap at $21 a bottle! So I limited my selection to two polishes from the ‘Breathable’ range. Just because I was curious to find out whether it’s really breathable or not.
Now, let’s investigate!
REVIEW – Inglot O2M Breathable nail polish:
- Formula: 4-FREE, not very fast-drying. But the formula is creamy, highly pigmented and feels very luxurious. In those respects, it’s similar to Dior. Two coats required to get fully opaque coverage.
- Application: The polishes have a nice long brush that makes it very easy to apply the lacquer. It dries out evenly without any streaks, doesn’t go bubbly and is easy to remove/clean up.
- Finish: I tried Inglot #689 – subtly pearlescent Marsala colour and #691 – subtly pearlescent dark cherry creme. Both colours look incredible on nails, very glossy and look expensive. Pictured – no top coat, just to show you how naturally gorgeous these polishes are.
- Wearability: 4 days without a top coat, on the 4th day I removed this mani – it was still perfect. It survived even the beach!
- Nail Art: Perfect for any kind of nail art or details. Excellent formula is really easy to work with.
- Are they really ‘Breathable’? As Inglot states “…this nail enamel allows water and oxygen to pass through thanks to its special ingredient. The product helps keep the nails in the best condition while wearing nail enamel.” It’s hard to make any comments on this as I’ve been wearing this polish only for 4 days. So I didn’t notice any visible improvement in my nails condition, but my nails definitely did NOT look damaged, stained or dehydrated. Some polishes can do things like that, we all know that. According to this article this polish is actually an innovative product, with a special ingredient Polimer KS_02.
- Extra Notes: The most interesting thing, this article states that Inglot O2M Breathable polish range is said to be Halal! In fact, it’s the first and only Halal polish, no wonder it’s so incredibly popular in the UAE.
Overall Impression: Inglot O2M Breathable nail polish – stunning, easy to work with colours, fantastic formula and luxurious feel. So if you crave some unusual colours and great quality, long-lasting nail polish or looking for Halal polish to wear then go for Inglot O2M. It’s expensive, but it’s worth it! I mean, look at the photos: what other polish that looks so flawless without a top coat?
Availability: Inglot O2M Breathable polish available via Ingot counters, $21 in Australia or online $15, here, including the featured 689 and 691 colours.
Wearing: Precious Stones Ring and Delicate Crown Ring.
