Sula Beauty Paint & Peel Review and Swatches

Sula Beauty makes a very unique product in Paint & Peel. Here are a few points that make it an interesting product:
  • "It is a water-based product that smells like... nothing! Sula Paint & Peel™ has a "Big 3-Free" formulation that is free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and Phthalates - the smelly stuff, and is also free of the remaining cancer-linked ingredients still found in standard polish."
  • It is designed to be "makeup" for the nails. At the end of the day you can peel it off!
  • If you choose to you can throw a top coat on and wear it like any other polish.
Maybe it's just me but I'm a picker. So being able to pick/peel off my polish at the end of the night is just delightful for me.

These apply just like any other polish. The smell of these reminds me of water color paints- very mild. On the site they say 2 coats should do it but I found with the ones I tried 3 coats was needed. When you first brush them on the color is lighter than they are when dry (example later on). These take about 2 minutes to set. While they dry they have a weird "rubbery" look to them but after it sets that goes away. You should avoid hot water for 3 hours to allow it to fully harden which can be a little inconvenient.

So do they stay on through the day? Yes. I've had a little lifting at the edges if I've been doing housework but nothing that makes it unwearable. I can wear these for about 2 days before peeling them off. If I take a hot bath or do dishes is the biggest problem I've had.

Do they peel? Yes. Not quite as easy as I was expecting but they do. I can see these being awesome for travel.

Would I regularly use them? For me, I would wear them once in a while. I typically change my polish every day or two at the most so prolonged wear isn't really my thing. The option to add a top coat could probably make these work for a lot of people though and the water-based formula would be great for little polish lovers.

These come in full sized bottles (.37 fl oz) for $9.oo which have a rubber coated top or trios of mini bottles (.17 fl oz) for $14.oo and are available at
Haze, Horizon and Watermelon
