Intensae Nail Lacquer

Price: $21.00AUD

Where To Buy: Be Naturallyou

To stop myself from biting my nails, I usually keep them painted but it’s hard to find good nail colour that keeps my nails strong, colourful and at the same time doesn’t chip or peel off. Recently I was offered the chance to try Intensae nail lacquer and thought I would give it a go.

The range of colours is pretty solid but there’s nothing too outrageous – lots of neutrals, pinks and reds with some darker colours thrown in there too. My nails tend to get stronger with darker colours so 1966, a dark grey, is great because it’s dark but also a little different plus I tend to get a lot of compliments when I wear it! I have to say though, my absolute fave is the YÜYI 2in1 base and top coat. It’s my new go-to top coat because it’s rock hard, shiny and prevents chipping as well as stops me from biting my nails because they look so freakin’ good!

Now ‘cos they’re up on this blog, we know they’re vegan but they’re also 5 free, which means they don’t contain any of that gross, harmful stuff that we don’t want to be putting near our bodies like formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), camphor, formaldehyde resin and toluene (ew!!!)

At $21 a pop, these babies aren’t the cheapest going round but for rich, long lasting colour you’re getting a pretty good deal compared to other vegan nail polishes on the market.

If you’re in the market for a good quality, vegan nail lacquer with long lasting colours that can take you from work to night to the weekend, Intensae has you covered!

    Hey Chelsey,
    I’ve loved your cosmetic reviews over the last few months and was wondering if you had any suggestions for good quality, non-clumping, Australian, natural mascara? I’m slowly switching my beauty products to less chemical filled products and some can be quite expensive so I’m looking for recommendations before I shell out the cash 🙂

      Thanks Kristin, so glad you’re finding the reviews useful 😀 Most of my make up is made by Arbonne. They’re not Australian but do have an Australian office. They have a full ingredient guide on their site so you know everything about the ingredients you’re putting on your skin. It can be pretty pricey but if you sign up to be a Preferred Client you get 20% off your purchases for a yearly fee. I use It’s A Long Story mascara and I love it. You can find their stuff here. I hope that helps!

        Fantastic, thanks Chelsey – I’ll have a look 🙂 I knew you’d be a great source for suggestions!

      I’ve been using Adorn mineral mascara which I am really happy with 🙂 Their head office is in Burwood, Victoria.
