Have Fun With Nail Polish!
With all the flip flop wearing we do during the summer, we have to make sure our toes are in tip top shape and sandal ready. But with all the different toxic chemical ingredients that are in nail polish, like Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP (dibutyl phthalate), Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor, it makes you think twice about painting that nail polish you recently purchased on your porous nails.
A number of companies are now offering eco-friendly nail polish options that contain none of those toxic ingredients. These nail polishes come in many environmentally friendly shades to choose from minus all those chemicals so you can use it and share it with your best girlfriend. Have pretty nails and help make this planet a more beautiful place.
