Ever though about what you’re putting on your nails when you’re varnishing them? Nail varnishes, and cosmetics in general, have been recently scrutinised for containing potentially carcinogenic and toxic ingredients, so it’s not surprising that more and more we are looking for polishes with less ‘nasties’ in their formulations. And if you’re pregnant, for instance, it’s important that you chose wisely. Often quality and finish are compromised when we choose to buy a natural product, but not in this case. This fabulous brand called Zoya is safe to use (its eco formula is free from DBP, toluene, formaldehyde, and camphor) and provides long-lasting colours that are creamy and give flawless results with each application. I tried the Carmen red shade, a gorgeous Coca Cola red that is great for the summer and suits all skin tones. It glides easily when you use it, and feels consistent but not too thick, making it very easy to apply. I particularly like it on my toes, as it’s a timeless classic, and it seems to last forever without chipping (still looks perfect after a week!). But there are some other fabulous shades in the range too, such as a watermelon pink and a grey/mauve colour that look really luxe – definitely worth a look! So next time you buy a nail varnish, think twice about what’s in it and make an informed decision, as great results are no longer compromised by using natural formulations.
Zoya nail polish puts the final touch on fingertips and toes with a long-lasting, chip-resistant formula free from toxins such as camphor, DBP (phthalates), toluene, and formaldehyde.
Zoya nail polishes are available at biggreensmile.com and are priced at £10.50. They have been awarded as the longest wearing natural nail polish by an independent panel in Women’s Health Magazine.
