Great Toxin-Free Nail Polish Brands
You see, we all love to sport vibrant, shiny nails…. But we don’t love the harmful chemicals that are often associated with them. Fortunately, you don’t have to compromise your health for an impeccable manicure – as more and more brands are non-toxic. Read on to see a few of our top picks, from Deborah Lippmann to Zoya.
Deborah Lippman Gel Lab Pro Color, $20
The name “Deborah Lippmann” may remind you of your favorite Jewish aunt, but she was actually a celebrity manicurist (and jazz musician). Her nail polish line is vegan, free of the 7 most harmful toxins (aka “7-free”), and will make your nails look like G to L to A to M, GLAMOROUS! The price of a bottle is a bit pricey, but sometimes the extra cash is worth it for the long-lasting, star-worthy appeal.
Zoya nail polish, $10.
With more than 400 colors in the collection, at least one bright vegan shade is sure to impress, and Zoya herself is a classical pianist from Russia who, when she moved to the U.S. in the late 1970s, discovered that there were no non-toxic brands of nail polish available here. Her husband Michael, a chemist, developed the recipe and 40 years later, the rest is history. Support Zoya and her women-run beauty brand!
LVX Nail Lacquer, $15
Seven free and one compensated? Taste the 10 No’s! LVX offers a gelatinous, silky texture that is vegan and harmless, and has been touted by some well-known celebrities and fashion designers.
