We’ve all had that moment where we’ve lifted our hips to stretch back into a glorious downdog only to come face to face (well, face to feet) with neglected toes and a pedicure we should have had redone last week. Keep your little piggies looking pretty with non-toxic polish free of the big three: formaldehyde, toluene and Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), all known carcinogens.
Pamper your yogi toes with these hip, non-toxic nail polish brands:
Kim D’Amato started Priti NYC in 2005 when she couldn’t find a non-toxic way to beautify her nails during her pregnancy. Priti NYC polishes are made without the big three toxins and contain a UV inhibitor to keep polish looking fresh and glossy. They are available in over 100 different shades including the “it” coral of the season “Red Maple” from the 2012 Turkish Sorbet collection.
If you're not into DIY pedicures, look for Zoya Natural Nail Polish at your favorite nail spot. This popular vegan-friendly polish and nail care line is making a name for itself in salons across the country thanks to its long-lasting wear and cutting-edge colors, like "Suri". Zoya even passed our ultimate test: withstanding an intense two-hour Ashtanga class.
Still have flecks of your old polish lingering on your toes? Try the Karma Organic Nail Polish Remover. This 100% biodegradable remover is made from American grown soybeans, free of carcinogens and petroleum and comes in a pretty recycled glass bottle. Choose unscented or go for a little aromatherapy with calming lavender or anti-bacterial tea tree.
