When expectant mother Kim D’Amato was told to avoid the toxic fumes of nail salons during her pregnancy, she decided that rather than forgo manicures for nine months, she would create a line of non-toxic, soy-based polishes. And so Priti Organic Spa and Priti Polish was born.
The polishes are free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP, and the polish remover does the job using just corn, soy, orange, and vegetable oils. The colors come in a surprisingly wide range for such a small boutique brand, with some really gorgeous deep reds and pinks. But it's not just traditional shades; look for trendy hues such as the pale turquoise Mermaid Blue, the sparkly orangey gold Treasure Island, or the pale sheer yellow Laura Desert Peony.
At $12.50 a pop, they are a little pricey, but I bet for an expectant mom or anyone who wants to steer clear of scary nail polish ingredients, it's worth it.
