The Little Luxury: Sula Paint & Peel™ Polish

Motto: “Makeup for your nails”

Relationship status: We’ve had a few casual encounters and one night stands.

Why is Sula polish different from all other polishes? Rather than advertising and delivering a glossy, hard, week-long manicure… Sula is just the opposite. It’s peel-able and meant only for a short stint.

How long does it last? Depends how A.D.D. you are. It’ll last for as long as you can resist the temptation to peel it off. (Which for me is about 5 minutes.)

What is it good for? Absolutely nothing! No not really… while the idea of it might sound silly, it’s actually quite useful. It’s good for things like matching your mood, testing out a new daring color against your skin, matching to an outfit for an occasion, and for being that girl (or guy!) who changes their nail polish every single day.

Tinkerbell would approve: Painting and peeling it off the second it dries is a great way to pretend you’re 5 again. Whoopie!

Many a Mani: Something great I discovered was that it can paint on OVER an existing regular manicure. Try a new trend while not giving up your regular mani routine. You can paint your middle finger a dark color for an edgy look, or show your team spirit by painting each hand a different color just for the game. ALSO: When you peel it off after 5 minutes you don’t have to feel so bad.

“Big 3-Free”: Enjoy Sula’s green-friendly formula, free of Formaldehyde, Toleune and Phthalates.

Longing for a longer-lasting option? Sula now makes Top & Base Coats which can supposedly extend the wear for up to 10 days. Haven’t tested this out yet, but not sure I will because that would totally spoil the addictive peely fun!

Good, cheap fun: $9.00 (50 applications/bottle). Order online at SulaBeauty.com
