The most famous characteristic of this product is that it allows your nails to breathe. It is air and water permeable, scientifically saying.

It also doesn’t contain toluene, dibutyl phthalate, camphor or formaldehyde, which is beneficial for any type of nails.

We know this formula by the name of gel-effect. An intense color is achieved due to special pigments that don’t allow it to darken with time. There’s also a brand new brush that allows using the nail polish economically by taking just enough of the product for one sweep.

It’s also free of harmful chemicals like toluene, camphor, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin, as well as dibutyl phthalate. The shade is inspired by the diamond itself, strong, sparkling and drawing attention.
