I am always trying to use products that are less laden with synthetic and potentially toxic subtances. Nail polish (or nail varnish) is really quite a toxic concoction of chemicals. The ingredients of these nail polishes have been linked to many health conditions and dis-eases within the body.
As with many things there is a safer option, unfortunately this is the option that is never the most advertised or widely available or on occasion the cheapest on the market.
But I am planning to do some testing of brands that sell themselves as ‘better’ and ‘less toxic’. So for this spring and summer we can all have happy, shiny, colourful nails!
The first is pictured here – Kure Bazaar from France. Their ingredients are 85% of natural origin, from such things as cotton, potatoes, wheat…
They have a great array of colours and are available to buy online and in stores across Europe and the US. I am trying out a pale coral colour which went on nicely and has a good shine and texture. I want to try some of the other darker colours and will see how they last!
