My house is slowly sinking under a pile of beauty products. It’s almost obscene when I look at just how much stuff that I have accumulated. Part of my issue is that I am a hoarder and I need to keep things just in case. Enough was enough when one of my drawers in my chest collapsed, sending bottles of fake tan and nail varnish all over my bedroom. Feeling inspired, I had a much needed clear out and created some big goody bags for family and friends. Whilst working through my extensive nail varnish collection, I noticed just how much my tastes in shades has changed over the last year or so, favouring neutrals instead of brights. Three shades which have kept their place in my storage are these beauties from Soigné Botanique Nails, a luxury brand that is Eco friendly and suitable for Vegans.
I had heard a lot of good things about Soigné Botanique Nails way before I acquired my shades, and one of the things that stood out to me was the brand ethos of luxury and indulgence without compromising on the care of the nail. As a long term acrylic nail wearer, nail care is very important to me when I take a break and give my natural nails time to breath and grow. The Soigné formulation is five free, which means they don’t contain any nasty chemicals, whilst they are made with up to 85% of plant sourced natural ingredients.
The three shades that I have came to me earlier on in the year, but I have been saving them until the autumn months. The shades remind me of the cozy and warm afternoons spent in the colder months, cashmere socks on feet and wrapped up under chunky knit throws whilst watching cheesy movies and drinking tea. The Parisian brand has absolutely hit the nail on the head when it comes to colours that emulate the seasonal change, whilst being right on trend.
Adorer is a soft lilac that runs on the cool side, but looks extremely elegant on the nails. The shade has been designed to remind you of the soft knitwears of the season with the luxurious textures and tones.
Éternel is my most used shade from the three, and it’s the one that I find that I’m automatically drawn to for a sophisticated neutral nail. It’s a creamy coffee shade that reminds me of milky lattes and suits my skin tone perfectly without looking too cool toned or chalky.
Consacrer is the deepest shade of the three, and the chalk blue is very reminiscent of the crisp autumn skies. I do have to think about what I am wearing when I choose Consacrer as it’s such a statement colour, I want my nails to do the talking.
The full shade range is quite extensive, and with each polish costing £11, they do fall into the mid priced bracket. The quality is exceptional and as an Essie/OPI wearer, I’m finding that my Soigné polishes are making an appearance more than others due to the long lasting and hard wearing finishes. Have you tried any Soigné Botanique Nail polishes?
