Suncoat Water-based Nail Polish

In my May 2014 Eco Emi, received a bottle of what appears to be Cinnamon.

The bottle didn’t give me a name, but the shade range on Suncoat’s website  indicates that this orange-toned bronze  is Cinnamon.

From their website: 


In Suncoat water-based nail polish – the chemical solvents (toluene and acetates etc) are replaced by water. Toluene and formaldehyde-free nail polish is only one step forward while Suncoat water-based nail polish is a revolutionary advance!


Suncoat water-based nail polish contains ~70% water. When applied, water vapor is released in to the air, not chemical fumes. Thus Suncoat water-based nail polish is:


  • environmentally friendly
  • does not dry or discolor nails
  • virtually odor-free
  • non-flammable
  • Mineral pigments and natural ingredients



The chipping occurred during a shower. I wore it through a suds n’ scrub session to see how it held up.



Apart from the chipping, it applies rather thinly. You can see the grooves and creases in my nails. It was also difficult to take off with Zoya Remove+ . I had to literally peel off the nail polish to get it off.

I don’t think I would try another shade from this nail polish range. I wasn’t impressed enough to seek out other colors from their line. I appreciate the attempt to create a more natural nail color product, but it doesn’t perform as well as Zoya and other brands.

  1. Too bad it’s nowhere near as good as you’d hoped it would be :-(

    Aww. :-( It’s nice that people are trying new things in polish, though!

    Also, I peel my normal nail polish off all the time…I’ve had the same bottle of nail polish remover for like 5 years! To be fair, the polish does just sort of pop off my weird nails, so there is that.
