Polished Thoughts

I was thrilled when my mom came home from the salon one day with a little bottle of perfectly pink nail polish in hand and announced that she had found me vegan nail polish! SpaRitual is the only company I know of that has created a line of vegan and eco-friendly nail polishes. The company uses Vegan ingredients such as specially sourced and selected plant essences that are wildcrafted or organic. And its products are naturally colored and free of synthetic dyes, toluene (a petroleum-based ingredient), formaldehyde (a cancer-causing chemical), and dibutyl phthalate or DBP (a chemical shown to cause birth defects). SpaRitual also prints all its materials in recycled paper using soy based inks. If you want to have pretty fingers and toes and avoid all the toxic chemicals that are harmful to our bodies and the enviornment, I would highly suggest picking up some SpaRitual polish to take to your next manicure or pedicure! My favorite shades from SpaRitual are: Surreal (an alluring shade of navy), I Feel The Earth Move (a rich shade of chocolate brown), Too Hot To Handle (a sexy shade of classic red) and Airhead (a perfectly pretty light pink)! Get to painting!
