Beauty Aisle: Scotch Naturals Nail Polish


Scotch Naturals' polishes go on smooth, are even more natural than other non-toxic brands, and come in playful colors perfect for sandy summer toes.

Scotch Naturals nail polishMy relationships with non-toxic nail polishes have mostly been short-term love affairs, where the manicure lasted longer than the polish itself.

So I was pleasantly surprised when I brushed Scotch Natural’s Caleigh (“smokey blue creme”) onto my nails last week. And now I’m in love.

Not only is Scotch Naturals free of the “Big 3” toxic nail polish ingredients (formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene), it also avoids the FD&C colorants—think Yellow 5 and Red 6—that many 3-free polishes still use.

When I grabbed the bottle, the water-based polish seemed to be separating in swirls of darker and lighter blues, but it went on in one solid bright color. It was as smooth as Essie, but slightly thicker like a paint, and I only needed one coat.

My at-home manicure lasted a full-week before chips appeared around the edges. A commitment!

To top it off, Scotch’s colors are happy, bright, and chic—great for playful toes peeking out of summer sandals. —Lisa Elaine Held

Scotch Naturals, $14.99, www.scotchnaturals.com and at several NYC salons and stores.
