Cote: Pretty Pastel Polishes for Spring

If you know me at all, you know how much I am in love with nail polish. It started when I was 3 at my Grandmother's salon. She used to do my nails and even had her own line of polish. I have tried just about everything out there, until now.

The wonderful ladies at Cote asked if I'd like to try their polishes, and I couldn't turn them down. I've been wearing nothing but Cote polishes since I got my hands on them. And y'all, I'm smitten. They are currently my favorite nail polish brand. I'm on a quest to grab all of their polishes for my own. They are THAT good.

I got to try out the pastel shades, shown above, but they have 112 shades, in all sorts of finishes, not including various base and top coats and treatments.

Swatched above is 1 coat. The colors are exactly as you see in the bottle. No surprises. I would suggest 2 coats, but the polish dries quickly and lasts for several days before chipping at the top. I also got to try the base/top coat, which I recommend. $18 each.

And the best part??

  • Toxin-free (no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, camphor, formaldehyde resin, TPHP, xylene, ethyl tosylamide)
  • Cruelty-free
  • Gluten-free
  • Paraben-free
  • Vegan
I cannot recommend this brand highly enough!
And I can't wait to try out more! :)

Extra Elle:
  • After a really busy week, I made it a point to take a few hours off. I saw the movie Everybody Wants Some!! and the documentary Nothing Left Unsaid and liked them both.
  • I have another post after this one, so I hope you stop by for an announcement and an extra post from me to you! Have a great day!

  4. That is one coat? Impressive. I have to check if they deliver to Germany. Once I start painting my nails again, that is.
