A nail polish for sensitive skin? Really? Apparently we touch our eyes 200 times a day, so it’s a good idea for nail polishes to be hypoallergenic too. Clinique launched A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins (9ml/0.3 oz. RRP in Belgium: 16,50 euros) with 12 permanent shades and 4 online exclusive limited-edition ones for summer. Today we’re taking a look at Black Honey and Summer in the City!
Clinique A Different Nail Enamel comes with a slightly flat brush. I find it easier to use than thin ones such as Chanel or Zoya, but flat tapered ones (Dior, Guerlain) are still my favorites.
Summer in the City (online exclusive, limited edition) is a watermelon pink, and Black Honey is a darkened cherry jam. The consistency is a bit thin, but both shades perform well. Black Honey is not 100% even with one coat, but with two it’s fine, I especially like the high-shine jelly finish. Summer in the City is a happy summery shade that I personally really enjoy!

Have you seen Clinique A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins around? Did any shade catch your eye? The other three limited-edition summer shades include 70º and Sunny (a bright yellow), Splish Splash (a petrol blue), and Hula Skirt (grassy green). Pretty bold!
