Choose natural nail polish


Color yourself nontoxic by choosing natural nail polish with water  and plant-based ingredients. Although many major cosmetic companies have put the kibosh on some (but not all) noxious chemicals like toluene, ethyl acetate, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and formaldehyde in their products, play it safe by opting for a natural nail polish by an eco- and health-savvy company. Just imagine adorning those finger nails and toes without fear of making a room reek like a industrial paint shop.

Natural nail polishes

As concern over the ugly side of cosmetics mounts, a variety of natural nail polishes have emerged on the market for eco- and health-conscious beauty junkies. And fear not: Natural nail polishes come in a variety of eye-catching colors with sassy names for every occasion. Did that screaming shade of scarlet not turn out to your liking? Reach for a natural nail polish remover. Addicted to regular mani and pedis? Visit an eco-friendly nail salon that follows environmental regulations and uses chem-free products.
