Leave the lumpy shamrock sweater in the closet this March 17. Instead, why not paint your nails in one of the many 3-free green polishes now sprouting up everywhere this spring.

Here are some of our favorite shades of green. And each is sourced from a 3-free company, meaning no formaldehyde, phthalates, or toluene have been used in the formulations.

So, when people eye your nails, you can say, “Oh yeah, this is a 3-free polish, which means it doesn’t have the should-be-banned chemicals used in many others.” Cheers to that!
