Istanbul – Breathable Nail Polish

(39 customer reviews)


Istanbul [is-tahn-bool] is inspired by the vibrant reds of the Turkish city. The beautiful red walls of the Hagia Sofia, the low red lighting of the basilica cistern, and of course the reds of spices and souvenirs in the spice market and grand bazaar.

Istanbul is a deep maroon shade that provides full coverage in one swipe.

    I absolutely love this polish. I stalked this color (Istanbul) for a while and was bummed out when it was out of stock for a few weeks. When it came back in stock I quickly purchased. I’ve gotten many compliments for the deep rich color.

  23. Saniha

    Love this nail polish. Love the shade. Bought a few more shades. However i did notice that if you apply a second coat, the water doesnt seem to go under that easily. I apply just one coat and am happy.

    Where is it?

  35. Adriana (verified owner)

    This polish is a beautiful, rich, dark burgundy. Very classy and elegant–it’s perfect for the office (if your workplace allows more than just neutral nails). The formula is wonderfully smooth and non-streaky. Love it!
