Acquarella Nail Polish

It all started with getting pregnant...the online research started on my part to better improve our lives and I was SHOCKED to see how many chemicals were used in my everyday life! TOXIC CHEMICALS and products that were tested on animals (by this I mean animals that were tortured!!) I vowed to make some major changes but it wasn't easy! The fade of "Going Green" was in full effect and companies were using this to make MAJOR sales but their products were far from "Green"!! In the grueling process of weeding out products that use harsh ingredients I learned quickly to read labels and to investigate!!

One thing I loved to do was get manicures and pedicures! The fumes from the nail salon were enough to make me want to pass out and I decided to start doing them at home! Assuming I was saving myself from the chemical harm of breathing it in... I didn't even think about the chemicals I was putting on my own nails!! Not to mention Ralph would make me go on the sunporch to paint my nails because he REALLY couldn't stand the smell that much!! Enter the BEST Nail Polish in existents... ACQUARELLA!!!

"Acquarella is a clean slate. With water as our solvent and an engineered safe co-polymer structure, we have nothing in common with the legacy that is conventional nail polish. Acquarella is virtually odorless, dries quickly, has excellent shine and wear, without a base or top coat, and these are only some of the benefits of this amazing nail polish technology."

The nail polish is AMAZING!!! Odorless, dries super fast so I don't ruin them and looks stunning!!! But the biggest concern I had was answered....No toxicity!!!

To think I'm no longer using toxic nail polish... acetone to remove it (MORE chemicals) which left my nails and fingertips dry and brittle and no more aerosol cans of drying spray...need I say it, but yes MORE chemicals!! Acquarella has it ALL covered!!!

In my fun review package I received:
