Maniday: Natio – Little Treasures Part IV


I caved! I wrote another Little Treasures post. Those tiny little bottles have some kind of wicked spell on me.

We’ve now managed to review 13 of the 23 colours. Will there be a Natio Little Treasures Part V or is this just getting silly?

Price: I found these three colours on sale at Ashfield Priceline for $2.97. Otherwise you can spend $5.95 in David Jones, Myer or online.


Why we love them: It’s vegan, Australian owned and free from nasty chemicals such as formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate.

Colour Breakdown


This is currently out of stock online so if you want this you better race into a Myer or DJs – NOW.

I can see why this is out of stock. It is super pretty and would suit all skin tones, all year round. This is definitely one of my faves.


Buying pastel laquer is always a bit of a gamble – the white in it can make the nail look patchy and uneven. After applying two coats Peach was still a bit streaky, like Natio’s Lemon. Three coats, however, created a lovely opaque finish. Unfortunately I can’t say the same for Natio’s Lemon which is my most HATED polish ever.



I had my eye on Tangerine for ages. Orange is on trend right now too and we saw Hungarian model Barabara Palvin wearing it at Cannes last month.


But now I’m wearing a mix of Tangerine and Magenta I’m more enamoured with the latter. I think Tangerine would look amazing on an olive or dark skin. And also, while I’ve been saying I don’t care about wearing brights in winter there is something too loud about this shade. I’m going to bring it out in summer when I’m not so pale and give it a second chance.



Blanche from The Golden Girls may hate the colour magenta but I’m its newest convert. Natio’s Magenta is a deep orchid colour, more purple than red. I’ve always been a fan of purple – in fashion or on my eyelids but I don’t tend to wear it on my nails. But I think this has to change, especially now. Out of today’s three colours this makes the best winter shade. It’s manages to be both unusual and dark while working as a bit of a pick-me-up.


I think Magenta needs to be promoted from an accent nail to the main feature asap.

Fun Fact: Did you know the inspiration behind the colour magenta came from the flower of the Fuchsia plant? Pretty …
