MANI MONDAY: THE BRAZILIAN
From Gisele Bundchen to Cintia Dicker to Alessandra Ambrosio, Brazil is practically synonymous with beautiful women. But ask us to name a beauty Brazilian beauty brand, and suddenly we're stripped for answers--Until now, that is. As it turns out, Brazil boasts one of the largest beauty industries in the world, yet very little is available for those of us living outside of the South American country. Enter Impala, the forerunner in Brazilian nail polish, which just so happen to launch stateside! Offering an extensive range of lacquers (glitter, matte, metallic--you name it!), the quick-drying are 3-free, hypoallergenic, and go on amazingly smooth. Oh, and they also cost about half as much as most of the cult brands we're accustomed to. Though we've only tested a few colors, "Agua Fresca" is definitely our favorite so far. Check out the full range here and let us know which colors you end up testing out. Viva Brazil!
