In celebration of 18 months on GAPS, I'm going to have my first giveaway at the blog! A friend of mine used to sell toe rings and when I complimented her on how cute her toes were in sandals with her pretty toe rings she brought in her remaining inventory and fitted two of my toes with toe rings! 🙂
It was then I realized how plain my toes looked without nail polish and I started wondering if there were any non-toxic nail polishes available.
GAPS suggests that we stop using toxic products; when I started GAPS I was already ahead of the game because I'd stopped using nail polish and remover years ago and because the smell is so obnoxious and would just make me feel sick when I had to use it. The other thing is before starting on GAPS I never much energy to even care about taking the time to paint my toenails! But now that I'm feeling better, I actually have the energy and desire to look pretty! I always wondered how women could coordinate their outfits with jewelry, matching shoes, nail polish, etc.! Now I understand, because now I have enough energy to do more than barely exist. Yay GAPS!
In my search for a non-toxic nail polish, I ran across Go Natural Non-Toxic Hypoallergenic Nail Polish.
I wrote to the company and asked if they would be so kind as to allow me to sample their product, and within a few days I received a package in the mail. Was I ever surprised to find three pretty nail polishes, with prime coat, top coat and nail polish remover!
I was so excited to try out this product. The first thing I noticed is there is truly hardly any smell. What a relief to my nose! The instructions stated that I should wash my toenails with the polish remover, once dry use primecoat on the tips and edges of the nails. Next they suggest two coats of color, and finally a coat of topcoat. My toes looked beautiful and my feet looked so fancy!
If you are fellow GAPSter, you know how many detox baths we take… one a day if we're diligent and sometimes two a day! Over the next two weeks I took several detox baths in fairly hot water, and the polish remained untouched. I did make a point to not keep my toes in the hot water for the entire thirty minutes just in case. I didn't want to mess up my paint job any sooner than I needed to.
Go Natural Polish does not contain any of the usual toxins found in nail polish: no formaldehyde, toluene, dibutylphthalate (DBP), bisphenol A (BPA) dangerous acetate solvents, or acetone. This is important when you are trying to keep your body safe from any more toxins than we are already exposed to on a daily basis! You can learn more about Go Natural at their Frequently Asked Questions page.
