Natural Nailcare is In

When picking a nail salon, you want a place that cares about your nails AND your health. Maybe even the earth too. PAINT Nail Bar cares about all. Utilizing vegan, clean polish that is free of toxins, PAINT emphasizes the “strength and integrity” of your natural nail. 

First off, what does it really mean for a nail polish to be non-toxic? 

Nail polishes at PAINT are either labeled “5-7-9 Free”, but for the average nail salon goer, like myself, it’s not obvious what this means. When nail polish is labeled “9- or 5- Free” it means it’s free of that number of toxic agents/chemicals such as Toluene, Camphor, DBP (dibutyl phthalate) and Formaldehyde (formaldehyde is seriously bad for your nails and can even cause allergic reactions). The higher the number, the better, at PAINT Nail, where technicians reduce the risk of compromising health by exclusively choosing clean product lines.

Of those lacquers, ZOYA was one of the first polishes to remove toxic ingredients from its long-lasting formulations and maintain its focus on health and well-being—a smart choice for women with allergies, skin sensitivities or who may be pregnant. SMITH & CULT is a 5-Free formula to also look for, with fun fall colors to choose from such as “Bite Your Kiss” and “Bang The Dream”. For those needing gel, go with BIOSEAWEED—odorless, dustless, safe for all ages and expecting mothers, as it does not “stain, weaken or dehydrate the natural nail”. Meanwhile, MADAM GLAM offers all the “free” components—cruelty-free, 9-Free and gluten-free gel—making it an easy choice for those health- and planet-conscious. Plus, no UV lamps are used for gel manicures, only LED at PAINT.

And, if you're looking for natural skincare to match your nails, PRIMERS is the salon’s newly-launched, proprietary line of active plant-based products of certified organic ingredients—sans parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, formaldehyde, sulphates, GMOs, silicone and artificial colors. So once you’ve got those nails painted and dried pretty, rub on their “A Show of Hands” hand repair cream and “Hey Cutie” cuticle treatment oil. Coming clean never felt, or looked, so good.
