We all love a beautifully decorated nail. Here are some of our favourite brands that are more on the natural side – either 3 free or 5 free from chemicals that are in many nail polishes but are proven to be harmful to us. All of these nail brands have gorgeous polishes – they go on like a dream and look seriously sexy! If you’re interested in a bit of ‘clean beauty’ pampering – these polishes are for you!
Kure Baazar have created a formulation with up to 85% of natural origin – based on wood pulp, wheat, cotton, potatoes and corn with the intention that their polish respects the natural cycle of the nail regeneration and is like a ‘detox’ for your nails. The colour ‘Gloss’ is a lovely shimmery white with tiny multi-coloured glitter –perfect for Christmas! The other colour we have is called ‘Adriana’.
HJ Manicure is a ‘5 free’ polish range. These fabulous polishes quite a thin brush which allows a more precise application. The colours we have are ‘Strawberry Daiquri’ and ‘Subzero’. The packaging is very sleek and the colours in the collection are very classic and classy.
Nailberry’s first collection was ‘4 free’ but their new range, L’Oxygéné, is 5 free – using a formulation which allows air and moisture to pass through the polish, resulting in healthier nails, which is something we love. The gorgeous colours included in our edit are ‘Baby Blue’ and ‘Groseille’. These are from their L’Oxygéné range.
This brand with a mission was started by Ros in 2013 as part of her mission to encourage women to express themselves through colour. The brand is also ‘5 free’ and has quite a thick brush, allowing a quicker and smoother application of product. The colours we have reviewed are ‘Abiding Vitality’ and ‘Passion and Prudence’.
Ciate claim that their polishes up to 80% natural ingredients and are ‘3 free’. The packaging is very cute, looks great on a dressing table and with such a wide range of colours, you’ll certainly be able to find the perfect one for you. The two colours in the picture are called ‘Iced Frappe’ and ‘Dangerous Affair’.
