Eliminate one more question to ask yourself when picking your polish — not only choose the right shade, but know if the bottle you grab is free of the toxic trio! We've talked about the chemicals — toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate — when greening our home manicure. And now there's an cheat sheet to know which brands are safe at the shop or salon.
The National Healthy Nail Salon Alliance surveyed product manufacturers and found that 74 percent of polishes were entirely "three free." Yay. If you're curious whether your favorite brand is in the clear, print the downloadable card — it's as easy as one, two, three when you cut, fold, and save the wallet-sized sheet as a reference.
