I only became aware of how many hazardous toxins were in nail polish fairly recently, and it's an understatement to say that I was blown-away by the facts. Having learnt that my favourite polishes were full of formaldehyde and DBP, among other chemicals, I quickly tossed all my beloved polishes in the bin and started researching healthier alternatives. I soon discovered the incredible colour selection from Ella & Mila, so I could rejoice in the glory of polished nails once again.
Quickly becoming one of the most sought-after nail polishes, this line was born from the simple idea of creating an eco-friendly yet high-end product. The polish is chip-resistant with a gel-like finish that is quick drying and comes in a huge selection of divine shades. It is '7-free' meaning that it contains no Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP), Xylene or Camphor. Ella & Mila polishes are also PeTA certified, vegan and cruelty-free.
They also do a soy-based polish remover and nail oils and strengtheners, covering nail care as well as nail colours, so there's a lot to love about this ethical polish brand. Try Naughty Not Nice for a luxuriously deep and glossy red that's perfect for Christmas party season, or Sugar Fairy for the perfect nude shade.
