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.

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.

How to apply:
1. Begin with a clean and dry nail. 2. Apply a thin coat of the BKIND Base. 3. Allow the base to dry (about 3 minutes) before proceeding with color application. Apply 2 thin color coats, allowing each coat to dry (about 5 minutes) before proceeding to the next. 4. Finish with the BKIND Top Coat, letting it dry completely (another 5 minutes).
Pro Tip: Brush over the edge of the nail bed left to right with both the base and topcoat. This is key in providing you with extended wear. Also, use a blow dryer to dry layers between coats.
