Hello TIGERS! ALL TIGERS natural and vegan lipsticks have shaken up our makeup kit. Today, we pay more attention to the makeup products we use: from lipsticks, to eyes shadow to lacquers, these formulas are scrutinized up and down...
I wanted to focus on nail polish. Did you know that 25% of women wear nail lacquer regularly? Green brands are finally emerging to satisfy our expectations. Demand for it is getting stronger, which is great. I have selected 3 brands of natural lacquer that you will love.
Why Should We Use Natural Lacquer?
What I like in natural lacquers
First of all, let it be known that conventional nail lacquers contain many ingredients that are not at all ecological and also potentially toxic...eek! Needless to say, I definitely prefer a clean version without toluene, formaldehyde, phthalates, styrene, camphor, xylene, or other parabens.
But, on the bright side, away from conventional lacquers, we're seeing potentially toxic elements disappear in favor of natural solvents, such as maize, cassava, wood pulp, potato or cotton derivatives—or even plant pigments. Natural lacquer has become a cosmetic revolution of recent years.
And green lacquers are just as powerful as classic polishes. Today brands do whatever they can to offer a wide choice of various shades with rich colors. Natural nail lacquer also proves to be long-lasting. The result? Green lacquers are high quality products!
Their use is similar to conventional lacquers, with practical brushes made up of synthetic bristles. It also dries is no time. Finally, most natural nail lacquer brands are even cruelty-free & vegan. They do not contain animal-based ingredients and are not tested on animals. In short, they've got it all going on.
