My job requires me to keep my nails looking good. Since I wear a navy dress at work, I prefer a milky white and pink nail polish to match my uniform. I find the light pink colors look good on all skin tones and complement any color outfit. I also save a lot of money by polishing my nails myself. I found some excellent products for a DIY manicure. I use Honeybee Natural Nail Polish Remover and Qtica Intense Hand Rejuvenating Peel. I use melted coconut oil to make a homemade hand scrub. I massage my cuticles with Replenish Organic Nail and Cuticle Oil daily. I believe the constant use of hand sanitizer weakens nails so I use Londontown Kur Nail Hardener. I also like Londontown Kur Protective Top Coat and Londontown Kur Accelerating Drying Oil. The entire line of Londontown Kur products are non-toxic.
I use only non-toxic nail polish products. Our nails and skin are very porous, especially when wet. “3 Free” does not contain Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, and Formaldehyde. “5 Free” does not contain Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor. Read more about these toxic ingredients here.
Occasionally, I will treat myself to a spa manicure. I am very picky about nail salons. Most are not sanitary and smell bad due to the toxic chemicals. My favorite organic nail salons are Mia Combe and JuJu Salon in Philadelphia. I also recommend Orla at Salon Ciseaux in Winter Park, Florida. She uses Zoya natural nail polish and nail care treatments.
