Before you reach for that nail polish make sure you check the ingredients. Most nail polishes contain the "Toxic Trio". These toxins can cause undesirable reactions in our bodies. The top 3 toxins to avoid are Dibutyl Phtalate (DBP), which causes birth defects and reproductive issues, Toluene causes birth defects and is an ingredient found in gasoline, and also Formaldehyde, a known carcinogen.
So before you start that mani or pedi, get your self a nail polish that not only looks great, but is safe for you to wear. Some brands that claim to be free of the "Toxic Trio" are Mineral Fusion, ella+mila, Zoya and Piggy Paint. But as always, do your research and get informed.
