We recently changed our formula to a 10 free version and I’m really excited to be one of the few that offer it. Of course it still pretty much smells the same, it’s impossible to change that (I wish we could though). It takes constant research and development and experimentation to keep up with or stay one step ahead of the competition and let me tell you, there’s some serious competition. I’m sure if your a Polish Addict you know there are countless Indie Brands and then of course you have the Mega Brands. By the way, I don't believe any of the major drug store brands are 10 Free. Most are not even 3 or 5 Free, you should really "try" try and ready the ingredients, you'll be amazed. That's why we label the bottles, but also add a card with all ingredients and cautions listed at a readable size. I guess the point of this blog is to ask you all to be careful with the large mega brands, especially the brands made in China. I've never heard of anyone literally loosing a finger by wearing nail polish, but I like to know what in the products I wear and where the come from.
SHINE uncommon nail polish uses our exclusive "10 Free" Formula which contains fewer Harsh Chemicals, is Cruelty Free and Vegan Friendly.
You might be thinking, what dangerous chemicals, I wear polish everyday. The chemicals Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP) and Xylene are NOT CONTAINED in SHINE polishes. These chemicals may cause serious health issues. Issues like simple headache's and nausea to extremely serious problems such as seizures, acute pulmonary edema and birth defects with prolonged use. That was just not going to do, we wanted to make a product we could feel good about letting our daughters, sisters, mother's and our clients (that's you) use. So when we began gathering the raw materials to use in our line, this was top of the list for us. Eventually we found what we were looking for and use it to produce Handmade Polishes that are beautiful, long lasting, with 10 toxins you can check off your daily "things to worry about" list. There's also a couple of cherries on top, we only buy ingredients from companies that never test on animals and SHINE is Vegan friendly. We only work with FDA approved solvent-resistant cosmetic glitters, micas, pigments and other colourants.
