Non-Toxic Nail Polish

Ever since I read about the plethora of chemicals that exist in most beauty products, I've been a bit squeamish about them, specifically nail polish. (It's so permanent and removing it is such an unpleasant process.) So, I was twittering today with Bridal Buzz and the topic of eco-friendly nail polish came up. She asked if any existed and I was happy to do a little digging. I visited Skin Deep, the cosmetics database, and found that Acquarella is one the least hazardous nail polishes you can wear. It doesn't contain ingredients linked to cancer or developmental/reproductive toxicity, like some other polishes do. And they have a pretty nice array of colors to choose from. I'm kind of on a blue kick right now, so I'm loving the blue. However, I don't think it would look that good with my skin color. Perhaps for a bride though, it's a cute way to work in the "something blue?"

Great find, I'm loving my options here! As much as I'd like to be free and clear, my toe nails feel funny being naked! :)

I've always been a huge fan of spa ritual. They offer quite a few colors, are reasonably priced and they're 100% vegan.
