By the title you might think I am suggesting you paint your nails green this summer. Well I have no idea if green is in, but regardless of what colour you choose, I suggest a nail polish that is environmentally friendly. It will not cost you more than the other reputable brands (I am not talking about the really cheap brands that go on like goop and look like it too) and yet you can breathe easier looking down at your coulourful nails. The ingredients in most nail polishes that you want to avoid are: DBP, formaldehyde and toluene which can cause skin irritation and birth defects in animals. Nicole is a brand that I have found at the drugstore here and it is at least free of DBP and formaldehyde. Moreover it does not test on animals.
