Natural Nails

One of the blogs I like to start my day with is I go by Katie written by Katie Kukulka.  I really enjoy her short, photo based posts, that are a informative about everything from living as organically as possible and collection antiques, to book reviews and easy recipes.

One of the things that keep popping up in her posts is a nail polish brand called Scotch.  This polish has an incredible resume, it claims to be Vegan, Cruelty-free, Gluten-free, Fragrance-free, Toxin Free, Paraben Free, Hypoallergenic & Biodegradable.  While I didn’t know that some of those terms needed to be applied to a nail polish, it made me feel more altruistic just reading the brand information.  I haven’t had the privilege of testing out the products myself, but a selection of the colors have made their way onto my “to buy” short list.

Katie’s three color review:

NEAT – a sheer pink when applied once gives your nails a pretty & refined translucent pink hue. If you apply it multiple times it can become opaque but you risk brushstroke lines if you don’t let it dry between layers.

KILTLIFTER – a bright pinkish, magenta red that goes on opaque with one coat. My new all time favorite for toes 🙂

HEATHER BLUSH – (not pictured above) a grayish taupe brown that went on very sheer though with my skin tone made my finger nails look bruised. If you have an olive or tan skin tone this polish could look lovely & natural.

*I know the $14.99 price tag might make some shy away from trying this product, but remember, every little step we can take towards a healthier lifestyle makes a difference.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
