Nail Polish as Self Care

Happy Month of Love!

February is the perfect time to practice love in all its forms, especially self-love. So as part of our suggested self-care, we encourage you to make a little time to give yourself a manicure and a pedicure. What’s our go-to nail polish company? We absolutely love, love, LOVE Mineral Fusion’s Nail Polish! “Tiara,” a delicate, glistening pink topped with their “Shimmering Shale” for a sparkly, creates a perfectly pink pairing that is splendid for February’s love theme.

How much do we love Mineral Fusion’s nail color line? Let us count the ways…

  1. Vegan
  2. Cruelty-free
  3. Gorgeous colors that include creamy, glittery, and metallic-y
  4. Base Coat, Gel Top Coat, and a Glitter Top Coat
  5. Free from formaldehyde, a known cancer-causing chemical
  6. Free from toluene, a toxic chemical that is harmful to the brain, nervous system, respiratory system, and reproductive system
  7. Free from DBP (dibutyl phthalate), a toxic chemical that has been linked to reproductive damage
  8. Long lasting!! Seriously, we’re rough on our hands and this color doesn’t chip easily.
  9. Dries ridiculously fast! We applied two layers of Tiara, one layer of Shimmering Shale, and the Gel Top Coat in less time than it took to do two layers of a conventional nail color.
  10. EWG Skin Deep verified

The Environmental Working Group “creates profiles for cosmetic and personal care items and their potential hazards and health concerns.” Think of the EWG as a company that provides a report card for beauty products (hair, skin, nails). The lower the rating on their scale of 0-10, the safer the product.

To go one step further, companies can become EWG verified by submitting “significantly more detailed information to confirm that they: avoid ingredients that authoritative health bodies have flagged for potential health concerns; fully disclose their ingredients to consumers; ensure that their products are adequately preserved and free of contaminants; and follow good manufacturing practices. A company must meet all our rigorous criteria and provide additional information not typically found on the product label – an effort to drive the market toward greater transparency.” Once a company is EWG Verified, a numeric score is no longer provided as it is inherently a score of 0.

If you haven’t yet tried Mineral Fusion’s nail polish, we highly recommend it!
