Columbian nail polish & nail accessory brand, TOY has launched in South Africa & I am so glad I got the chance to try out this fab new (to us) brand. I am currently quite obsessed with the colour Cherry Blossom. This is metallic pink with a purple/lilac tinge & it simply looks quite marvelous on me!
Good consistency to apply. I did find though that instead of the recommended 2 coats – I needed 3 coats. But this is personal preference so you may be happy with 2 coats. Also, I wanted to especially mention that TOY gives a total drying time of 7 minutes for x2 coats & a base & top coat. Not bad for us busy girls on the go!
I think that this is a good quality polish. It won’t chip easily, & lasts at least 5 days – on me, bearing in mind I don’t do much that could ruin my nails.
You can purchase TOY nail polishes for about R99 each (RSP), which I think is quite affordable.
While elsewhere in the country has more access to the brand, Durban does have quite limited access. However, considering they are new to South Africa, this is a good start. Below you will see a list of stockiest. I should also mention that you could solve the availability problem by becoming a reseller (which TOY encourages). Mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
**Please note that TOY nail polishes are cruelty free, which I know is a deciding factor for some of you.
