Pretty Nails can be Green too


Give me a woman that wants to be green and still wear nail polish and I’ll give you the answer to her problem. Ladies, it’s not impossible, you can have great nails and still be eco-friendly. There are several brands of nail polish that are eco-friendly. For instance Honeybee Gardens’ Water Colors Polish is a water based nail polish that does not contain formaldehyde or toxins and no artificial colors. To take it a step further this nail polish will come off with just rubbing alcohol or grain alcohols and vodka. For those interested, Honeybee Gardens’ comes in 21 colors and they also make natural lipsticks. The cost for this eco-friendly look is just around $7, and that’s nothing that will put a hole in your purse. For those young ladies and teenagers out there, try Piggy Paint’s Natural as Mud nail polish. It withstands all the activities of young ladies, like playing in the dirt and dressing up your dolls. For a even tougher coat use the hair dryer for one minute on your nails. Like Honeybee Gardens’, Piggy Paint’s is also water based and is non-toxic, in addition this polish is hypoallergenic. So for all those who are allergic to their nail polish, this is your solution. At $10 this brand is worth the cost when it comes to helping the environment. One last brand I would recommend is the BioPolish from Kaia House. This polish is also non-toxic and it is never tested on animals, the company refuses to do so. They also have a nail polish remover that is soy based, making it free of the toxic chemicals found in regular nail polish removers. Not only is this brand eco-friendly but the color shades are named after cities all around the world. Names like Shanghai and Rome have a sultry matte finish while St. Tropez and Monaco are pale pastels. The price of this brand is $10, the same as the Piggy Paint’s brand. Deciding on which brand to buy depends on your personal preferences. If you want something that is environmentally safe but also cheap and stylish you could go with Honeybee Gardens’ Water Colors Polish. For a younger audience looking to spend the money and help the earth, you could go with the Natural as Mud polish by Piggy Paint’s. For all the animal lovers out there, you also have a choice with Kaia House’s BioPolish. These are just a few brands of green nail polish, feel free you find the right brand for you. There is always something for everyone, so ladies you have no excuse not go green with you looks.

      It's good to see that even the beauty industry is starting to become more aware of the terrible impact we humans have on our planet! :)
