Nail Friendly Polish

Nail Friendly Polish

With the increased levels of stress we’re all experiencing due to COVID protocols of social and physical distancing, it’s important to find time to bring beauty and joy back into our lives. An at-home spa day is one way to set aside time to decompress and even better if you can gather your girlfriends for a virtual spa day.   

In the last few years, much has been written about toxic levels of chemicals in nail polish and while all nail polish is made from chemicals, we want to offer options with the safest level of chemicals. As a smart label reader, you want to look for a polish that, at a minimum, is noted to be free of the toxic trio: formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene. Brands often note they’re “three-free”, “five-free” or even “twelve-free!” Here’s our line up of Five Nail Friendly Polishes.
