I haven't bought new nail-polish in at least 2 or 3 years. Last winter messed up a bunch of my old stash because the air was so dry. I don't know how it made my nail polish thick and goopy when the lids were tightly secured, but it did. So I kinda needed to buy some new polish. I looked at water-based ones, that I might try them someday, but they just seemed to complicated. So I just picked out a color that seemed cool at the health-food store.
Anyway, I love this new color! It's called Abalone and it really does look like the inside of an abalone shell, but it's not made from them because it's a vegan polish. It can look green in the sunlight, purple in the shadow, and grey at an angle. It's like all my favorite colors in one polish! And it matches my favorite summer shoes.
And it doesn't chip at all, really. I wore it for two months of hiking, yard work, and general debauchery and the only place where my toenails were showing was where they grew out.
It is called "7 free" because it is made without parabens, phthalates (dibutyl phthalate), toluene, xylene, camphor, formaldehyde, resin, and animals. I don't know about you, but I am always looking for a good formaldehyde-free nail-polish. I'm not ready to be embalmed yet!
And did I mention the cool nautilus shells on the cap? I am a sucker for anything nautilus related, so that's why I got it in the first place. It's just so golden-ratio!
You can get it here, if you want.
