For this Eco Princess water based nail polish review I tried the peel-off nail polish in two colors- Fairy Orange and Princess Purple. Eco Princess non-toxic nail polish for kids is available from organicbeautynow.com. It is recommended for kids age 3+.
Eco Princess water based nail polish comes in cute little 7.4ml (0.25oz) bottles. The petite bottles are a perfect size for kids.
I painted my nails in the evening, to allow the water based nail polish to fully dry overnight. For the color swatches, I applied 3 coats of polish, allowing the polish to dry between coats. It seemed to take longer to dry than non-peel-off water based formulas.
For the wear test I only applied 2 layers of each color, to avoid streaking.
I did not notice any smell while applying the Eco Princess water based nail polish.
The brushes are small and rough and difficult to paint with. If the first layer of nail polish is not completely dry, the brush will wipe it off when applying the second layer. I tried to keep the brush bristles laying as flat against my nails as possible, to avoid messing up the texture of the polish.
The main improvement that could be made to Eco Princess nail polish is switching out the brushes for ones with softer bristles.
The first coat of Eco Princess nail polish goes on very thin, with only a little bit of pigment. The color builds with the second and third coats.
The polishes have sparkles in them, but they dry to a dull satin finish.
Fairy Orange is a peachy orange coral color. When I first saw the bottle in dim lighting I thought it was pink, but in brighter lighting it looked orange. Shown above is Fairy Orange with three coats. I liked the way this color looked with my complexion and I would wear it again.
Princess Purple is a faint silvery purple color. Shown above is one coat. This color works better with one sheer coat, since the polish becomes streaky as more coats are added.
Applying three coats of Princess Purple resulted in very streaky uneven nail polish. I tried removing and re-applying the polish on some of my nails, but still could not get a smooth finish. When the polish has not fully dried it washes off very easily. I would recommend just using one layer of Princess Purple, since it looks much better than with three layers.
Day 1 (After wearing the polish for one day.)
The Eco Princess peel-off nail polish looked good after a day of wear.
Day 2 (After wearing the polish for two days.)
The Eco Princess nail polish was peeling a bit at the tips after two days, but it still looked pretty good.
To remove Eco Princess nail polish I soaked my nails in warm water for five minutes and loosened the polish near my cuticles. It was a bit difficult to peel off the polish, since I had only used two thin coats. The polish scuffed up my nail plates when I peeled it off. This polish might be best used for a shorter time, like for playing dress-up and then removing it right away.
Overall Opinion of Eco Princess Peel-Off Polish
Overall, Eco Princess water based nail polish is a good non-toxic option for kids, since it has no smelly fumes. It comes in dainty little bottles and cute colors that are fun for playing dress-up.
This polish is best used on children’s nails, since it does not have the smooth application expected of a polish for grown-ups. But that could be improved if it came with a softer brush.
