It took six years and countless tests by dermatologists and ophthalmologists to develop Clinique’s A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins, launching this May at beauty counters nationwide. Sure the line has a very long title but its purpose is one allergy sufferers and those with skin sensitivity issues will appreciate. According to Clinique, nail polishes can be an allergen source, especially since we touch our eyes 200 times a day, so it was important to develop a collection of nail lacquers to relieve eye sensitivity and even dermatitis.
The collection consists of 12 permanent shades and a limited edition color collection for summer 2013. The high gloss formula is chip resistant for seven days of wear when used in tandem with A Different Nail Enamel Base and Top Coat for Sensitive Skins. The collection will be available Clinique counters nationwide and online at www.clinique.com for $16.
