No I am not talking about my current haircolor of “crazy long dark roots because I live in denial that my little sister/hair stylist just moved away to the big apple,” I’m talking about my signaure nail color. I read Gorgeously Green by Sophie Uliano, remember that book from years ago? Well it blew my mind especially after I saw her on Oprah. Oh Oprah how I miss thee, but I do love what you left behind Nate, and Dr. Oz. Anyway got side tracked, once I read that book and realized the beauty products you put on your body everyday are full of chemicals and preservatives that can possibly damage or interfere with each and every body function you have, including reproductivity, I knew I had to make a change, especially since I was prime baby making age.
Enter formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, free nail polish. I bring my own little bag when I go to get my mani and pedi and they know not to put anything on me I have not approved.
My favorite color is by far Sparituals Hunk of Burnin’ Love. Although I continue to feel brave every now and then and try something new, nothing compares in my eyes to a nice, short, square with rounded edges, classic red nail.
I realize in the scheme of the chemicals we are exposed to daily this seems like such a minor one, but I think if I can control that aspect then I will since so many things are out of my control. You can typically get these nail polishes at all natural stores or online.
