Last month I gave away all my nail polish. Okay, so I only had 5 bottles. I decided to do away with chemical-laden polishes, opting instead for the 4-sided nail buffer that’s been a staple in my makeup bag since high school.
Sure, shiny, smooth, buffed nails look professional, but I missed fun summer colored fingertips to brighten up the day. After a little research I came up with a handful of companies selling just what I needed, non-toxic polish, one brand even claiming to be as natural as mud. I’ll take that!
Next time I buy polish, I’ll definitely be sporting non-toxic nails. Some of these brands have been around for awhile, so I’m not at all concerned about chipping polish or needing to repaint every few days. To be honest, it’s really not my style to fret about a mani anyhow.
It’s scary to think of what poisonous chemicals could be entering my body one way or another from something that I’d overlooked my entire life. My household is going 100% chem-free in the nails department. You’d better believe my little girl’s toes will only be painted with a colorful bottle from one of these lines.
