One often overlooked aspect of natural beauty care is nail polish. You might be thinking, that those nails are a thick and protective layer on top of your nail bed, so what could possibly be wrong with slathering on a shiny coat of chic, colorful lacquer? Bad news. Nails absorb up to 25% of their weight in water with one soak. It just so happens that your nails are extremely porous so its very important to use a safe water-based formulation to minimize your exposure to toxins.
Read on to learn about the beautiful benefits of using natural nail polish with a wide array of Spring colors from Scotch Naturals!
