Although eye makeup is my favorite cosmetic genre, I love being able to peek down at glossy, polished toenails from time to time. I’ve also gotten lazy about chip maintenance, so I generally leave my fingernails bare and lavish attention on my toes instead.
Since greening my beauty routine, I’ve been on a mission to find less toxic nail polish than my stash of OPI, Essie, NYC, Sally Hansen, China Glaze, Wet N Wild, and all the random brands from my youth. Color me thrilled when my obsessive researching on Skindeep indicated that Sephora’s Color Hit Nail Polish rang in with a better score (2 out of 10 on a toxicity scale) than the big nail polish hotshot brands (3+).
Red toenails are my favorite foot look, so for my first nail polish bottle post-purge, I went with a cheery, fine engine red called “Date a Prince” (shade 40). There were lots of other reddish, maroonish, and pinkish shades available, but I loved the orange tint of this one. The undertones sing of summer!
I’m thrilled with the turnout and am hoping that it’s as chip-resistant as its reviews have boasted. Fingers crossed for warm weather 🙂
