Did You Know Most Nail Polish is Toxic?
Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but it's true. The majority of nail polishes are full of really bad stuff for your health and it's considered toxic waste. And gels... don't get me started. Many nail polishes also contain animal-derived ingredients. On the kinder side, BKIND provides a nail polish that's vegan, 77% plant-based, and 21-FREE... meaning it's free from 21 toxic ingredients found in traditional nail polish. It's a professional-grade polish that's easy to apply and dries quickly, giving you a long-lasting, luminous finish. So you can feel good knowing your nail polish is respecting animals, the environment, and yourself!
La Route Verte is described as bright olive green, almost khaki.
For best results, try it with the Base and Top Coat.
WHAT DOES IT REPLACE?
The majority of nail polishes on the market contain multiple toxic ingredients that can be harmful to health. Also, while this information is often not shared, many nail polishes unfortunately contain animal-derived ingredients. For example, cochineal insect pigment is sometimes used to make reds more vivid, or guanine crystals, from fish scales or chameleons, are used to add luster and shine in cosmetics.
