In the 1980’s there was a nail polish made by Tinkerbell that was every young girlie girls favorite list and it was found in the toy section. This proprietary formula was picked up by Worx Toys and along with their relaunch of an old favorite, the colors are more vibrant and the formula is improved. Now those that were little girls in the 1980’s can share this old favorite with their children!
I was tickled pink (yes even at the ripe old age of 51) to get the chance to play with a toy like Bo-Po, I was a Cosmetology Student and then a Cosmetologist back when these were introduced. And I thought it was so cute, the little girls playing with their nails in the waiting room, painting their nails and later peeling away at them. I sort of envied those little girls and their new toys, my makeup toys were plastic little items that looked like the real thing but didn’t do a thing at all.
I received my little kit of two polishes from Bo-Po in the mail and the colors I received where a vibrant blue called “Cloudy Day” and a green glitter called “sweet dreams tint”. The Cloudy Day color was opaque and the Sweet Dreams a semi-transparent color. I first noted that the smell of the polish was Vanilla!!!! And not that sickeningly sweet vanilla, but a nice softly sweet vanilla. This polish surely isn’t an anyway like “Mommies” nail polish. Next I noticed, as the first coat dried, that the look of the polish is a bit matte as it dries (but the tint with the glitter look to it is a bit more shine to it) so, for the Mommies out there, you can tell they didn’t sneak into your own nail polish! Nice to know you could tell… just don’t tell the children that you know the difference Moms!
Next I played with the amount of coats to the fingernails, and I discovered that you did need more than 2 coats of the polish to make it peel, I tried one then two coats and tried to peel and it didn’t do so, it came off in chips. When I stopped at 3 coats and let it dry the peeling was very easy! Now my coats of nail polish always appeared to be less polish than when I’ve watched friends doing their nails, and especially when I watch children putting it on. I have the habit of wiping off access on the lip of the bottle opening, and so I would say for most people it would possibly work with just one or two coats. Also my nails have ridges on them from Lupus SLE, and those ridges could have been the culprit with my nails needing more coats to peel off nicely, without little chips all over the place.
This polish is non-toxic and spill proof, yes I tested out the spill proof part and sure enough it is!
The Bo-Po Polish comes in 10 colors and I wouldn’t mind having a few more, for those days when I want a quick change in nail color without fussing with nail polish remover. 🙂 I may have to pick up more of the Bo-Po Nail Polish to “test out” and this time, find some special time with my niece, she’s my little sweetheart… runs up to me with a big huge hug every time I see her and I would love to have special girls time together someday! I think we’d have to play with some of their pink that is called “Razzmatazz”, this looks like my neices kind of color, if not? Oh well, it’s Auntie’s Color! lol
