Just because you’re trying to do something good for your body shouldn’t mean having to sacrifice quality beauty products (especially when it comes to your manicure). Thanks to some of our favorite under-the-radar, non-toxic brands, keeping nails healthy and fabulous is easier than ever. Just so we’re clear, for a polish to truly be considered 5-free, it must be formulated without these known toxic ingredients: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor.
