I love to paint my nails - both fingers and toes! I think I probably change my color at least once a week. And in the summertime it is especially important to have bright colors, and I am partial to pinks and reds. But the bummer is, I also chew on my nails. So they are not long and pretty like some gals' nails I see. But I do it for me and it makes me feel girly and happy. And then I heard about a vegan nail polish - Dr.'s Remedy!
From the Dr.'s Remedy website:
In 2005, Dr. Cirlincione was ready to become a dad for the second time. Upon reading and reviewing all of the many pregnancy do's and don'ts: Pregnant women should avoid raw and undercooked meat; Pregnant women should wash vegetables and fruit before eating them; Pregnant women should avoid unpasteurized dairy products, hair dye, potent cleaning chemicals, etc. It became clear there was a growing need for clean cosmetic options as well. As a Podiatrist and nail care professional, he noted a salon market saturated with questionable nail polish brands and recalled years of training in which he was taught to instruct patients to avoid (toxic) nail polish - which could cause weakness and discoloration to the nails as well as possible nail fungus. However, patients wanted to hide unsightly nail conditions as well as feel glamorous - so he thought: if we can't beat them, then let's join them! During surgery one afternoon, Dr. Cirlincione, together with Dr. Spielfogel, decided to design a polish that was not only free of the many harmful toxins found in traditional polishes, but was further enriched with natural healing ingredients. The conversation was followed by 2 years of research and chemistry, and in 2007 (approximately 18 months after welcoming his second son!), Dr.'s Remedy was born: the healthy alternative to nail care!
If you're going to paint your nails as much as I do, then it should be healthy polish. Pretty and good for your nails! No one ever thinks of nail health really. And it is super important. Dr.'s Remedy has 40 awesome shades, and nail treatments. They are free from harmful toxins such as: formaldehyde as well as formaldehyde resin, toluene, TPHP, camphor, phthalates, xylene, parabens, and ethyl tosylamide. Sounds like icky stuff, because it is! Dr.'s Remedy is enriched with organically grown, naturally occurring antifungal ingredients (tea tree oil, garlic bulb extract, and lavender), and is fortified with nail strengthening vitamins as well (biotin, wheat protein, vitamins C & E, ginseng, and kale extract)! And they are made in the USA! So get glam and get colorful this summer with Dr.'s Remedy! You won't regret it!
