Habit Nail Polish in Tabou

Every time I come across a new brand, I am skeptical. Same goes for Habit Nail Paints. I did mention that I won them in a giveaway, but I wonder if it justifies at $18 price tag. It’s harsh chemicals free, with Myrrh extract to strengthen nails and super adorable packaging and a bamboo cap.. But does it work?

This is Tabou, a very rich and vibrant Tangerine orange-red . 3 coater and a great formula as usual .. Finishes sheer-cream. Swatches sans base/top coat.

And the worst part:
This is the polish after 3 days of wear surviving house work, showers and laundry, cooking and cleaning ..

OVERALL : Its pathetic how they can make such a great product, chemical free! It doesn’t chip, didn’t stain my nails. I have no dupes to display and the bottle is so cute! I am sorry but I can’t NOT justify the price any more ūüôā It right up the alley of the high fashion brands and I personally loved it more than Illamasqua (to compare within the same price range products)

OVERALL: I had no issues applying the polish great product !!
My only concern, it doesn’t dry right away and takes a few minutes. I through I had something similar in my collection … And I don’t. .. So I love it, this will be my first Radiant Orchid in the stash ! Costs $18 Each.. That’s a bit uncomfortable but certainly worth owning.. It didn’t chip after few days of wear and the color doesn’t loose it’s glossy finish unlike most others. Click here, to make a purchase.
