Cappuccino Nail Lacquer by Kure Bazaar: The Top 23 Nail Polishes That Are 5-Free
Chemicals plastered to your nails for a week? Um, no thanks. Until fairly recently, our digits were often subjected to five sketchy—and outright toxic—ingredients every time we got a mani-pedi. We’re talking formaldehyde (yes, the stuff they use to preserve dead bodies), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, formaldehyde resin, and camphor, which can do a bunch of nasty things to your body, from triggering allergies to disrupting your endocrine system. If you’ve been on the hunt for formaldehyde-free nail polish, you’re not alone.
To the rescue is a group of trailblazing, wellness-savvy lines like Priti and Obsessive Cumpulsive Cosmetics who are helping change the nail game big time. Now, even more manicure companies are jumping on the 5-free bandwagon—and they don’t skimp on quality, color, or creativity, either.
With so many healthier mani options on the market, does that mean chemical-heavy formulas will soon be a thing of the past? We have our (well-polished) fingers crossed.
