Grab of the Week: nail polish that’s eco-conscious, vegan-friendly and stylish


Published:

Ever since the release of a recent study showing that the UV lamps found in nail salons might be carcinogenic, we’ve had to kiss our beloved shellac manicures goodbye. But most nail beauty products aren’t that much better for you, and since we’re not quite ready to give up on lacquered nails altogether, we felt a bit stumped.

Thankfully, downtown’s chemical-free beauty salon, Lush & Lavish, carries the full nail polish range from the vegan and eco-conscious spa brand SpaRitual, which is naturally coloured and completely free of synthetic dyes. The array of colour options is vast; be sure to look out for the spring-ready pastel-coloured collection called “meditate.”
