Little BU for the little you

Patricia Dente who has formerly worked with Liz Earle and Chanel Beaute has introduced a range of Nail Polishes, namely Little BU for little ones!

Now before you think how unacceptable it is for kids to wear Nail Paint, the answer lies in the brand itself which makes odourless, chemical-free, waterbased and non-toxic formulas.

I have got told off so many times in the past when I have given into temptation and committed the ultimate sin of painting my nieces (and nephews!) nails. At least, I'll have a back-up speech ready now and will make sure to carry these with me. *smirks*

In my opinion, this is not only a great thing for kids but also for intolerant grown ups who simply cannot bear the thought of having chemicals on their nails and this includes my sister and mum who have complained many times in the past that they can actually taste the chemical on their nails whilst eating!

The flattering shades and variety makes sure you like it as much as your little girl. There is not a single shade I would not wear to be honest hence kudos to Patricia for keeping us grown ups in mind as well.

I have in my possession Sofia, Emma, Kyra and a top coat.

My favourite is Sofia without doubt as the blackish-purple with minuscule glitter simply stole my heart. The finish of all the polishes is very glossy and they dry almost instantly.
Emma and Kyra are really pigmented too. Emma is the brightest of reds I own currently and Kyra is a flattering, shimmery champagne shade.

I like the fact that the shades are not the very typical ones out there and have a modern twist to them. Water based or wash-off polishes are usually quite thin but these are just as good as you Chanel's when it comes to quality.

Yes, it comes off in contact with hot water and soap as they are meant to however if used in conjunction with the top coat, it lasts much longer although the finish is mattified.

Available in nine cute and quirky shades for £9.95 each at Harrods, don't forget to get your little one a pressie of her choice.

If you happen to be in London this Saturday, you may want to attend Little BU's launch party at the Children's Designerwear section at Harrods between 2-6pm on the 4th floor for some mini manicures, face painting and other such treats. Don't forget to get any little ones!

I wonder if the polishes would smear off if the kids started playing around or putting their hands in food or something! A friends niece loves nail polish but is sticking her hand into anything and everything every few seconds so I wonder how that'd work, lol! Cute concept though, much better than putting actual nail polish on for a kid!
