Review : Amara Kids Nail Polish (SPONSORED)3:46:00 PM
Hey guysss ^^...
So i actually meant to do this post a lot sooner but i wasn't able to because this involves various shades of nail polishes and i am the type of reviewer that needs to use them all for a period of time to make sure i can be responsible for what i am saying haha. Yes, this is #spon but you know i will always be brutally honest, right?
Anyway, if you've read my Full Face Using Kids Makeup Challenge post then you'd know that i used all Amara Kids' products for that challenge. After i posted it on my Instagram, Amara Kids actually reached out to me and asked if i was interested in trying out their nail polishes. After a few minutes of wondering if i should be laughing (coz brand collaboration is always something that i embrace with open arms haha) or crying (you know, being 32 and using products meant for kids... I don't know how to feel about that), i decided that sure, i'd love to try them out hahaha.

I think i touched on Amara Kids as a brand a little bit on my Kids Makeup Challenge, basically Amara Kids is a local brand that specializes in non-toxic, kids-friendly cosmetics and nail polishes. If you have a little girl and she's demanding for her own makeups (i know a lot of little girls do that nowadays. Heck, i would want some if i am a little girl *LOL*)-or you want her to stop ruining your high end, adult makeup-well... This is the brand you want to go to haha. They are cute, they are an actual cosmetic (instead of the fake, plastic makeup my mum made me rub all over my face when i was a kid -___-) and totally harmless. Amara Kids is also a quite well known Indonesian brand, Purbasari's sister brand and all of their products are registered in BPOM.
Now let's get on with the review, shall we?
They have two different types of nail polishes, a shimmery ones (the pink, yellow and brown) and the normal glossy ones (the fuchsia, purple, green and orange) and at first i thought that maybe the cap's color indicates the nail polish's type, but.. nope. Not really. So i don't really know the base in their cap's color selection, maybe they do it in random? LOL...

|Okay so... let's try them on already!|
The consistency of Amara Kids nail polishes are quite good, the normal glossy one are quite pigmented and they look promising already with one coat-you do need a second coat for an even and opaque color tho. As for the shimmery type, they are a lot sheerer and also need at least two coats to be even. These nails polishes definitely dries up pretty fast so you do not need to wait around for too long (that'd be annoying!).
I read that Amara Kids stated that they nail polishes are fragrance free, but it still has quite a strong scent-IMO. It's not particularly pleasant *LOL* but i do find most nail polishes to not have pleasant scents so that's normal. Some of these nail polishes have a funky, kinda citrusy scent (actually they reminded me of dried mandarin skin snacks, if you know what i mean hahaha) while the others just smell of... i dunno, paint i guess. The paint smell disappears after the nail polish dries but the funky citrus scented ones lingers a bit longer.
I am also quite surprised at the color choices they have, i mean... The yellow, green, pink, purple, blue ones are quite normal and appealing for kids, obviously-but they also have some very grown up colors too! Like the Bright Brown :
I used this Bright Brown shade for one day on its own (i used a nail strengthener as a base because i am currently trying to treat my abused nails better) and i guess because it is a peelable nail polish which are mainly for kids (so staying power is not something that should be a concern hahaha), i noticed that the tips were already kinda worn even after only one day. I was also worried that a peelable nail polish would mean that i have to be super careful not to bump them into things and ruin them, but it's really not that fragile hahaha. If you want your manicure to stay longer, just apply a good quality top coat on top and they last for as long as my regular nail polishes-which is a very good thing. They would start cracking and shifting after three or four days, which again-very normal, and would start chipping really badly only after a week!
|Proof that i really did wear colorful nails to a wedding. With a full makeup and diamond rings, no less :p|
In short, i think Amara Kids nail polish is a pretty dope product! Be it for your little girl (or a gift for your little sister/niece/whatever) or even for adults who want non-damaging nail products that still work pretty well. I also think it's super amazing for its price point and i would not think twice to buy them for Baby Zoe when she's a bit older. Or for my own Baby Girl, if i ever have one hahaha.
