Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to find a 100% natural (and certified natural) nail polish? In today’s video we give you a short and simple explanation to why this is and why you should opt for a “free from” nail polish if you want to paint your nails with a non-toxic nail polish.
Truth About Natural Nail Polish
The simple answer to why you havn’t found a 100% natural nail polish that works is because it is basically impossible to create that. In order for a nail polish to be fun to wear it needs to be opaque, quick-drying, long-lasting and preferably have various fun colour options. A completely natural recipe for nail polish would severely decrease many of these qualities making it unpractical and simply not fun to wear. This is why, when it comes to nail polish, it is best to choose a “free from” nail polish. Whether that be “5-Free”, “7-Free” or “14-Free” is up to you (keeping in mind that the more “free” the more toxic ingredients the nail polish excludes). A “free from” nail polish aims exclude the most toxic and harmful ingredients still used in conventional nail polishes today making them your best option if you want to keep using nail polish whilst choosing a safer and more natural option.
