3-free Nail Polish!


I really love painting my nails.  I used to do them all the time…for special occasions, for fun and when I was bored with nothing else to do.

Purging my nail polish collection

When I found out that nail polish was full of unnecessary chemicals, I was so dismayed!  I stopped using the nail polishes that I had and after several months, I finally got rid of them.

Time to replenish my nail polish collection

After some research, I discovered that there are a few great options for safe nail polishes.  I was so pleased to learn about them.  I even blogged about it a few weeks ago here.

Zoya – A 3-Free Option

I decided to start with Zoya.  It’s a 3-free nail polish.  I bought two colours, Austine (that’s the neutral colour) and Stella (that’s the red colour).

I love bold colours on my nails, but don’t always feel that they’re totally appropriate for my workplace.  So, the Austine is for my fingernails and the Stella will be for my toes!

Now, if only I could reach my toes…

Of course, at 31 weeks into my pregnancy, it’s not like I can actually reach my toes.  😦

Fortunately, that leaves me with the lovely option of booking a visit to the spa for an all natural pedicure!  🙂

  1. I’ve been wanting to get a hold of Zoya nails so bad! I saw this via and was debating whether I should or not. Perhaps I should. LOL. Awww I was just like you, couldn’t reach my toes, too! hahah xx Go pamper yourself beautiful Momma to be.

  2. I love Zoya nail polish! They come in some fantastic colours too and last quite a lengthy time. I remember not being able to touch my toes in the last month or so of pregnancy, definitely go and pamper yourself with a spa day 🙂

  3. Wow, i do the same thing with some of my beauty products… I have a post coming up soon on a product i replaced with organic one!
    nail polishes are very toxic and full of chemicals….. so its nice to know that you replaced with better or more natural one! 🙂

  4. Oh this is so much cheaper than the Butter brand and I really like the color “Wednesday”. Thanks for the follow-up post…I haven’t painted my nails since your previous post! 🙂
