|What makes this product different from traditional polish|
|You already know it's water-based and free from harsh chemical odors but let's take that a step further. Without getting too technical, let's explore the fundamental differences between solvent-based and water-based systems. Solvent-based polishes are simple solutions of nitrocellulose resins in strong solvents. Nitrocellulose is used because it forms a very hard film easily as the solvents evaporate from the base. These harsh, bad-smelling solvents, are then also used to remove the polish by dissolving the film. By contrast, water-based polish uses an emulsion resin in the form of billions of very small particles suspended in water. As the water evaporates, the particles touch each other and form a hard film which is no longer soluble in water. Traditional polish cures by reversible solvent evaporation and is easily dissolved. Our formula cures by creating a tightly knit film and not easily dissolved.|
|Wash and dry hands thoroughly before applying polish but do not soak nails. Those with very dry skin may wish to apply a cuticle oil to nails first before applying polish to help hydrate the nail. Make sure the oil is absorbed into the nail before polishing. Our WaterColors Nail Enamels work best when used with our Endure Primer/Sealer and Gel Remover.|
Complete hardening occurs 4-6 hours after application, defer rough and prolonged water exposure during this time. Ideally apply polish at night and allow to cure overnight.
Wipe off any unwanted polish on skin, cuticles with cotton or stick. For longer wear, repeat a quick application of Endure or Clear coat after 3-4 days.
When it is time to remove your polish, it is best to use Honeybee Gardens Nail Polish Remover Gel, which is acetone free. It is specifically formulated to remove the strong bond our Endure Primer/Sealer creates.
|You may find this product is a bit more difficult to remove from toe nails, because toe nails are naturally more dry and have less natural oils. We do NOT recommend using our Endure Primer Sealer on your toe nails for this reason.|
|Tips & Tricks|
While WaterColors Nail Enamel may look and act like traditional solvent-based polish, it does have its eccentricities. Most of our customers tell us they would rather have to do an extra step if necessary rather than use polishes which contain potentially toxic ingredients. Here are some special instances and ideas which can help you create the perfect manicure.

First, Honeybee's customer service is phenomenal! I have been wearing WaterColors on my toes for years. In addition to it being much healthier for the planet and for me, they go on smoothly and are remarkably long-wearing. There is no odor whatsoever, and they do not yellow or dry my nails. Even the shades I've had for a long time are easily revived with a drop of water. Product descriptions indicate whether the shades are matte, iridescent, or shimmery; I've found those to be accurate. These are lovely!
