Spring Colors: The Best Non-Toxic Nail Polish
Nail polish is pretty difficult to make as a completely clean makeup product, but thanks to a slew of eco-conscious beauty companies, non-toxic nail polish brands are now aplenty and there’s no need for us to forsake style for peace of mind. When a nail polish brand gets in a clean beauty mindset, it chooses to leave out nasty (and cheap) chemicals such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate from their formulations. And the category killers are not just cleaner—they also deliver some of the best spring nail colors around. Read on below to see our top non-toxic nail polish colors for spring 2013. —Melissa Schweiger (@followmelis)
Kure Bazaar in Kelly
This is the fashionista’s choice of non-toxic nail polish. Started by a Brazilian supermodel, the formula in this chic, hard-to-find brand uses up to 85 percent of natural origin ingredients based on wood pulp, wheat, cotton, potatoes, and corn. The Kelly color, a vibrant tropical pink, is a pedicure must.
Jin Soon in Tea Rose
When celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi launched her much-anticipated nail polish collection earlier this year, it was met with excitement by all the beauty editors. The colors are gorgeous, and many of the shades are named by models Choi has worked with. Her Tea Rose color—a light pink coral—is the perfect everyday hue.
Butter London in Cuppa
One of the first clean beauty companies to go 3-Free in its nail shades, Butter London is always chockfull of way-cool colors and cheeky names (thanks to its English heritage). Cuppa—an opaque tan crème shade—is an elegant and rich choice for spring and summer manicures.
