Have you seen little kids wearing nail polish? I've seen one not too long ago, probably age 5, wearing a bright pink nail polish. Honestly, it looks cute but imagine my horror when this little girl suddenly began sucking her thumb!
We all know that most, if not all nail polishes contain chemicals that are unsafe most especially to little kids. We love coloring our nails, but since we know that these pretty babies contain chemicals, we don't go sucking our thumbs like that! But of course, our little kiddos don't know that. And even if they knew, I don't think they would be as cautious like us.
Good to know that there's a brand of nail polish that doesn't contain The Big 3: Formaldehyde, Toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate.
Girlstuff Nail Polish
Made in France but repackaged in the Philippines, this brand does not contain The Big 3:
- Formaldehyde - connected to Lung and Nasal cancer...and yep, this is being used to embalm bodies! Nail polish brands now use this chemical as a nail hardener in their colored polishes as a bonus.
- Toluene - known to affect the nervous system, cause birth defects, developmental abnormalities, liver and kidney damages. This is being used in polishes for smooth application.
- Dibutyl Phthalate - Linked to reproductive issues and being used in polishes to ward off chips and cracks on our painted nails.
Blush - Electric Blue - Machiatto - Scarlett - Sparkling Maroon
priced at Php99.00
pretty cheap for something safe, don't you think!?

opss, sorry for the flash!
I love how vibrant the colors are and it thus dry up a bit faster than the usual polishes I've tried.
And yes, it's safe for pregnant women too!

To prettify ourselves is not bad, but make sure that we are doing it safely not only for us, but to our little kiddos who want to be as pretty like US.
