8 Healthier Nail Polish Choices
Every gal likes to paint their nails every now & again. After all, sandals need polished toe nails...I think it's a rule of some kind ;)
Let's make healthier choices when it comes to nail polish. Nail polish is sky rocket high in harmful chemical ingredients! The EPA has it classified as household hazardous waste. If you go & treat yourself to getting your nails done then it's pretty much a toxic treat- blah :/ Even the air quality in a nail salon is an invisible chemical cloud.
Thank goodness for companies that care & have committed to offering safer products. Water based nail polish is the best to use. It's a much healthier option. I would definitely use 2 coats of polish with the water based type. You can find these online directly from their website & there are other online resources that sell them too.
