I love nail polish. It is such a shame that we do not know who invented it per se.
This is what the internet told me: Nail polish was invented by the Chinese in about 3000 B.C. It was made from a mixture of Arabic gum, egg whites, gelatin and beeswax. It is unknown who the first person was to invent nail polish, but it was used by the ancient Chinese and ancient Egyptians. Chinese royalty often used gold and silver nail polish.
Well, may I say… thank you Chinese peeps, what a great discovery, which we are still using after all these thousands of years!
This weekend I purchased four more colours to add to my collection… All from Rimmel. I will review the colours in due time:
What brands do you prefer? I always struggle when it comes to brands. Some brands who I’ve never heard of, have really long lasting colours, others chip immediately. One colour from another of the same brands, sometimes behaves differently too. It’s a mystery I tell you!
