Well, not yet but they will be once I get my special delivery from Mint Nail Polish. I just purchased like, 4 million dollars worth of goodies from them (don’t tell the hubby!) I needed some “basics”, so I purchased the (1) Flawless Base Coat, (2) Original Mint; and (3) Wet Look Sealer. I almost always have painted nails, but suck big time at the application part. So, I’m hoping that the base coat and sealer help my nails look less “I’m a 4 year old and just did my own nails” and more “I’m a 7 year old and just did my own nails”. Baby steps.
Why is Mint Nail Polish so MINT? Did you know that nail polish products are still considered HAZARDOUS WASTE in counties like L.A? Well, Ms. Greta Marie Huberty (founder of Mint) was said “no thank you” and decided to create a long-wearing nail lacquer with increased molecular polymers. Molecular polymers? I’m sorry I don’t speak the language. This is precisely when a scientist hubby comes in handy to break it down for me:
Mint maeks “toxin-free” polish (no carcinogenic/cancer-causing ingredients) – So, it’s SO much better for your bod (just don’t eat it because it’s still a paint product!). Those “molecular polymers” I mentioned earlier makes your nails nice and shiny while improving durability and polish application. Excluded from the equation? Formaldehyde (ew!), DBP (double ew!), Toulene (sounds gross) and animal testing (yey creatures!!)
Plus their colors are way-fun (and they have the cutest kitty & moustache mini-decals). Do it!
