Non-Toxic Nail Polish
Brand: Coat The nail lacquers by Coat are “5-free”, which means they don’t contain harmful chemicals like toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), camphor, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin. These chemicals harm the body in different ways – in the mildest amount, they can irritate the skin, while overexposure may cause cancer or birth defects in children of pregnant women. Frustrated with the limited eco nail colour options available for her customers, Caryn Lim, owner of nail salon, Hands + Feet Studio, together with three friends, decided to create a 5-free nail lacquer brand, offering 20 richly pigmented and lasting colours, a base coat and a quick-drying top coat. Made in the United States, these polishes also come with a specially designed brush for smooth and even application. Available at Hands + Feet Studio, 44 Siglap Drive, tel: 6448-7187.
