Once upon a time, we trumpeted the arrival of ‘3-free’ polishes – created without toluene, formaldehyde and phthalates.
Then the ‘clean’ nail options ran to ‘5-free’ – but this is the first time we’ve come across a polish range claiming to have eliminated 12 different ‘questionable’ ingredients. They’re really throwing down the gauntlet to the nail industry here – with quite some style.
So: those ingredients you won’t find…? Here goes.
• Formaldehyde resin
• Ethyl Tosylamide
• Triphenyl Phosphate
• Animal derivatives
What we would add is that Nailberry haven’t compromised on quality, with their Nailberry L’Oxygéné Collection. In addition to allowing nails to ‘breathe’ (air and water vapour can pass through the colour to the nail), this multi-award-winning range is shiny, long-lasting and offers really great colours. Stylish bottles, too, if we may be so shallow.
PS It’s all certified vegan and halal, too.
