Higher temps and longer days have us itching to break out our spring pieces: florals, rompers, open-toe shoes... basically anything that isn't a parka and snow boots. To pull it all together, we'll also be breaking out our favorite nail colors as well, the pastels and brights that were too happy for the dreary weather (I wore mainly black on my nails these past few months to reflect the dead of winter... and my soul).
But, as the dark nail polish stained my nails a funky yellow (ewww), I was reminded that everything we put on our bodies is absorbed by it and, as I've been transitioning my skincare into mainly organic products, I became interested in checking out organic nail polish too: specifically, 5-Free.
What is 5-Free Nail Polish?
5-Free nail polishes are made without five known toxic chemicals: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. As options in this category and consumer knowledge grows, hopefully 5-Free nail polish will become the new standard.
For spring, I rounded up some of my favorite shades by 5-Free nail polish brands. If you haven't heard of them, check them out and start building your color collection with lacquer that is stylish and safe.
