Snails_logoHave you ever taken a moment to look at the ingredients of nail polish?  Formaldehyde, parabens and other chemicals that I am not even sure what they are or do!  For years, I have turned a blind eye for myself, all in the name of beauty, right?  But then when my girls started wanting their nails painted, I had to give a hard look at those ingredients again.  I could not knowingly paint embalming juice on their hands knowing that those hands go in their mouths on a regular basis!  This knowledge made me all the more excited to work with a brand like Snails.  Snails “Safe Nails” brings non-toxic, water-based nail polishes to the table that are lead-free, paraben-free, formaldehyde-free, BPA-free, and Dibutylphale-free – that is a lot of FREEBIES!  I was excited to receive two bottles of Snails children’s nail polish in exchange for my honest opinion.

What did I think?

As I mentioned, Snails, are safe, soluble nail polishes for children that are free of common chemicals found in many polishes.  Not only safe from a chemical standpoint, they are safe for clothes, floors and more – as they won’t stain!  Since they are water based, you can easily wash Snails nail polish off with soap and water.

In the past, I have painted the girls’ nails since I didn’t want them painting their skin, the floor, the couch… you get the picture.  But with Snails, I do not have to worry about that.  The girls can sit at the table and paint their nails, feeling like big kids and all the while, I know that nothing will get ruined and that they are safe!

I love that this nail polish applies smoothly and is not clumpy or streaky.  It really lets the girls feel more grown up if it does not look childish when they are applying it.  It does not have a crazy odor, which is a big plus for me!  Snails safe nail polish also comes in a wide assortment of colors to keep any nail polish lover happy!

The Verdict

Snails safe nail polish applies well, washes off skin, clothes and more and is fun for kids in addition to being safe.  If you are looking for some staying power, you can purchase the top coat from Snails to help give the polish some longevity.  Be sure to visit Snails on Facebook and Twitter to stay current with new colors, products and promotions!
