The ethos behind Poshe is to promote healthy nails without damaging chemicals. This winter has seen my nails suffer more than ever so healthy nails is something I'm desperately in need of!
I was sent a selection of products to try out and so I'm going to discuss them all a little now.
The Poshe Topcoat dries to the touch in one minute, gives a good shine and doesn't cause shrinking. You know how Chanel make great colours that don't tend to wear too well? With Poshe top coat I got 4 days without a single chip from my latest Chanel purchases. They may have gone on to last longer, I don't know, I had to remove to swatch other things, but it was super impressive. It comes as no surprise to me that this top coat has won awards. I won't use anything else.
I have mostly been using this in conjunction with the Poshe Strengthening Basecoat. The basecoat promises to promote harness and help flexibility, whilst conditioning and filling ridges. I don't know, it's hard to gauge the success of a base coat, all I can say is that in conjunction with the top coat, my manicures are lasting well. And that's all I really ask for.
I have also tried out the Fast Drying Basecoat. It sure does dry fast but then so does the Strengthening Basecoat. Both seem excellent, but because my nails are so weak at the moment, I'm sticking with the Strengthening version.
I am now swearing by the Poshe AHA Cuticle Care Cream. I use it every night and it can be used anywhere, but I am only using on my cuticles. Because it contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids it can (and does!) really help hang nails which is something I've always suffered from and I must say that I do appear to be suffering less of these right now.
I was also sent the Poshe Polish Reviver, which I've not yet had occasion to use.
So all in all I'm really impressed with these products, in particular the Top Coat, Nourishing Base Coat and AHA Cuticle Cream but buying in the UK doesn't look quite so simple. I'm told that the brand is available in Sallys, but it's not online and I've not been to a store to see if they have it in, but I've seen a few products on Amazon for very reasonable prices and I also managed to find this online stockist...but until I need to replace my products I can't vouch for this seller.
