SO’BiO étic nail polish – Romantique Rose; Kure Bazaar nail polish – Rose Milk; Kure Bazaar Rose nail polish remover
In my approach to a more conscious lifestyle, I have been looking for greener beauty product alternatives. When it comes to nails I’ve been searching for brands which have replaced chemical solvents (such as parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, toluene, xylene, synthetic camphor and chemical rosin) for natural origin components such as wood pulp, corn, potatoes, wheat, and cotton like SO’BIO étic and Kure Bazaar.
When it comes to nail polish colours, I always go for soft pinks and nudes. This way, my nails look still natural yet a bit more polished. I love the Milk it shade from Kure Bazaar that is up to 85% natural. I also use their 100% natural nail polish remover made of sugar cane, wheat, corn, rose hip oil and rose floral water. How sustainably natural and healthy is that?!
Kure Bazaar nail polish remover perfectly eliminates my lacquer and leaves my nails and cuticles hydrated, unlike regular removers. I don’t know about you but I hate this dry feeling and unpleasant smell from toxic removers.
I bought Kure Bazaar nail polish and nail polish remover on The Nail Kitchen. If you wish to purchase something from their website, use the code Pastel to receive a Kure Bazaar nail file (the one I am using in the above picture and I love it!). This nail file is made of paper and thus is 100% compostable. The code is valid until June 30th.
SO’BIO étic nail polishes contain minimum 83% and up to 89% of natural ingredients depending on the colours. I love this nude hue that goes with any of my outfits.
In my quest to live a more sustainable lifestyle, I also reduce my nail polish purchases. Before I used to buy almost every season a new shade because it was the trendy colour to wear. I ended up with a drawer full of (not to mention toxic) nail polishes that were either dry or with hues I didn’t like anymore. Learning from my mistake, I decided to stick to versatile tints like blush and nude and finish them before buying another one. A classic red colour might be the next addition to this small collection, though.
Which natural red nail polish would you recommend me?
