Beware…toxins in Nail PolishAugust 20, 2009
OPI ($7) nail polish is one of my favorite nail polish to use, stays on long so you really get your money worth. I love the new collection because of the beautiful colors and also this polish is FDA approved. Free of toxins including: formaldehyde, DBP, toluene.
Nars Nail Polish ($16) has developed an improved formula. The varnishes are now enhanced with UV protection, have a glossier finish, and supposedly last longer without chipping (I haven’t reached a verdict on this just yet). They are also free of formaldehyde, DBP and toluene – which I think makes the smell less severe.
The polishes in the Lippman Collection ($15) are now not only free of DBP, formaldehyde and toluene, but they also contain green tea and biotin (protein) to help your nails grow stronger. The formula dries quickly and has a really nice shine. I personally love the two new spring colors. Have you had the chance to check out Dream a Little Dream of Me yet?
Adorée Professional Nail Polish ($5) has more than 140 different nail colors in its range. While they are free of the “big three” polish no-no’s, they do contain hardeners to help strengthen nails, and they claim to provide a high-shine finish.
