Last year a blog reader informed me that nail polish is one of the most toxic things we put on our bodies.
Hopefully my advice can help steer you in the right direction so you don’t have to waste money on products that aren’t as good as others.
And as always, I want to open up the comments to your thoughts and opinions. I’ve already had several good recommendations from you guys!
I Love NP ( with the black tops on the above picture)
This Etsy shop ( which is in NY, United States ) offers 3-Free (free of toluene, formaldehyde, or dibutyl phthalate) polishes in fun colors and holographic finishes. My favorite color I’ve purchased from them is Juliette, a rose gold holographic polish. It’s a pretty pink glitter that is easy to wear and looks amazing in the sunlight. I also like their coral neon, which is pictured above. I will definitely try more in the future.
My friend, Natalie, introduced me to Habit. They have amazing colors to choose from and really cute bamboo lid packaging. So far I have tried Tabou (a bright orange-y red) and Belle Epoque (dark lavender). I also tried their top and bottom coat.
I am super pleased with the quality of both these polishes and want to try more colors. I’m curious how the lighter colors will hold up, and I want to try bardot next.
Also, Laura’s nail color in the photo above is Mineral Fusion in pebble (this is a good brand that dries quickly).
This is actually the first brand I tried. They are 8-free (free of formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene, and parabens), which is one of the best I’ve seen. For my personal taste, they also have the best packaging.
I like the colors a lot, but some bottles are better than others. Their black is AMAZING. Wouldn’t recommend their white (still looking for a full coverage true white if anyone knows of one!)
When I wear the darker colors, I tend to need to touch them up about once a day. I’ve always had issues with keeping my nail polish “perfect” for more than a day or two. So, this isn’t a deal breaker for me. I’ve been an Essie wearer in the past (the durability of these is equal, if not better).
With that said, I fully expected these natural products to suck and they do not. They are honestly all pretty equivalent to what I’d normally buy.
These natural nail polish are the best recommended by Vogue Amour. Now use chemical- free nail polish without any fear. Use healthy, stay healthy.
