I love this color and Kapa Nui polishes stay so well (I would argue even better than traditional polish). If you're in doubt, this your sign to go for it!!!
This red color is absolutely perfect for me! I will be getting Nohea in the full size from now on, as I love it that much. It is like a blood red. Just gorgeous! The staying power is phenomenal. Mine lasted 8 days before minor edge chipping. I bet that if I had refreshed with another clear shine coat, it would have lasted even longer. I was not careful with my hands at all. Just went about daily life and the polish really lasted. What Kapa Nui has done with their nail polish offerings is a blessing to anyone concerned about their health first and foremost. I stopped going to the nail salons years ago as the fumes were dizzying. Does it make sense to you that the nail techs are all in masks and you are left to inhale goodness knows what? How about what your nail beds are soaking in and distributing throughout your body? Anyone else out there with any form of MCS (mild to severe) that would love to be able to wear nail polish, seriously needs to get these nail products. You don't have to be cut off from enjoying a beautiful manicure any longer. If you don't have MCS, why court potential health problems in an increasingly toxic world? There was a time when I did not have MCS, and I wish that products like this existed before, as it would have decreased my toxic load, being able to have the choice of using a product line like Kapa Nui. It is wonderful to not feel sickened from just getting a manicure. It is also comforting to know that I am not bio accumulating toxins, even if I don't physically perceive any effects. Thanks to the wonderful ladies that worked so hard to produce this safe nail polish! I have bought just about all of the colors. Right now I am wearing Olili, which is a wonderful silver white whose glow reminds me of a strand of silver overtoned akoya pearls. I am loving my way through all these polishes!
