Paint Your Way to a Prettier World With This Polish

It’s easy to get lost in the world of nail polish—who can blame us when it seems like there’s a new color released every minute? Even though we should, we tend to not put as much thought into what we put on our nails as we do with our skin. But Sheswai Lacquer ($16) makes choosing a nail polish a no-brainer. Here’s why: 

You won’t find the “toxin trio” of toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde here. And for good reason—these chemicals have been linked to health risks like asthma and birth defects.

Those gorgeous wooden caps not only look pretty, they’re also crafted from sustainably harvested wood from family-owned trees to help cut down on plastic waste. On top of that, they are not tested on animals and a portion of the proceeds is donated to organizations that help the environment. They’re also assembled by Willing Workers, a non-profit organization that gives jobs to those with developmental disabilities.

We know, all of this sounds too good to be true, but it is actually a great nail polish. You only need one or two coats to get the opacity you want. Better yet, no base coat is necessary. In fact, these polishes actually work best on dry, clean nails. This makes them perfect for when you’re travelling because you’ll save space in your bag without that pesky base coat.
