"Almost Natural" Finger Nail Polish

Looking for completely non-toxic, all natural nail polish..... I got news for ya; it isn't going to happen, but, you can find some that doesn't contain a toxic, cancerous cocktail with preservatives for dead bodies (formaldehyde). The ever toxic, carcinogenic, organ destroying, Toluene is better known for it's reproductive harm it causes and is a class 3 hazard rating, while it's counterpart formaldehyde has a number 4 hazard rating. Dibutyl-Pthalate is a class 9, yes class 9 hazard rating. With all that crud  being in nail polish it's no wonder cancer numbers have sky rocketed. Does anybody even read labels or ingredients anymore? I paid $6 bucks for one bottle but it's just as good as OPI which is right around $9.

Here are the results for No Miss nail polish:
  • No Toluene
  • No Dibutyl-Pthalate
  • Formaldehyde
  • Colors free of D&C dyes
  • Chip resistant
  • Dries quickly
  • Durable

Yeah I never wore nail polish for a long time till I seen that brand at our health food store. Then I did some research as to what was in it versus the regular polish. I will cover one on hair dye too ;). That will truly open your eyes. There are few brands that are veggie dyes or henna dyes, but you have to be careful with those too.
