Non-toxic manicures were a huge beauty trend spotted all over the runway at New York Fashion Week. Proving that opting for some natural cosmetics doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your style! The latest trend in natural nail care is 5-free polish, which simply means they don’t contain the five worst chemicals found in many conventional nail polishes. Here, are two luxe 5-free ranges we’re loving plus a couple of extras that could come in handy if you want to treat yourself to a home mani!
Scout Cosmetics 5 Free Nail Lacquer in Don’t Lose My Number and Dual Top and Base Coat, $19.95 each
We don’t know which we love more this seriously sexy shade of red or its cheeky name! We’re also impressed by Scout’s durability and the fact that the range isn’t tested on animals. The two-in-one base and top coat is also a great idea to ensure your mani lasts longer.
INTENSAE 5 Free Lacquer in Nightclubbing, Merteuil and Veruschka, $24 each
All INTENSAE’s polishes are non-toxic, long-lasting and vegan-friendly. While the range is full of gorgeous shades, our fave hues for winter are this moody violet, dark fuschia and understated nude.
Fresh Therapies Nourishing Natural Nail Polish Remover Wipes, $18 for 10 wipes
Most polish removers tend to dry out your nails but this natural formulation actually nourishes them! We love the zingy lime peel scent and the handy sachets (one wipe is enough for 10 nails).
Elemis Sp@Home Frangipani Monoi Hair, Nail and Body Oil, $69
Free from parabens and mineral oils, this intensely-hydrating oil smells like tropical holidays and can be used as a luxe treatment for both your nails and hair.
