While traditional nail polishes rely on toxic ingredients that don’t allow your nails to breathe, leading to weak, brittle and unhealthy nails, there is another way, that’s stylish, green and breathable! Read on to know more about why this must have class of nail polish, is great for your nails and planet-kind too.
What is breathable nail polish?
This type of nail polish allows air and water to reach your nails through osmosis. Traditional nail polish contains ingredients that leave an impermeable film over your nails, cutting off the supply of oxygen and moisture to the nails.
What’s great about it?
Your nails will thank you for choosing breathable nail polish. Here’s why:
- Traditional nail polish is formulated using toxic chemicals like formaldehyde and benzophenone. But choose a nail polish with a plant-based formula like Sienna’s, and you can avoid toxic ingredients that harm the planet and your nails. Instead, you’ll find naturally derived ingredients such as sugar cane, cassava, cotton and corn that work in harmony with the environment and your body.
- Sienna’s nail polish also allows the nail’s natural oils to move freely through the nail instead of trapping them. This means your nails are kept nourished and healthy while looking great too.
- There is also the added benefit of getting a longer-lasting manicure when you use breathable and natural nail polish. Because non-breathable polishes don’t allow your nails’ oils to circulate freely, they build up on the surface of your nail. This means that the polish doesn’t cling to your nails and chips easily. You’ll find a manicure with natural, breathable polish looks better for longer for this reason.
- With air being able to get through the nail polish, your nails dry quicker, which means there’s less time spent waiting around and less chance of smudging. You have to love a speedier route to beautiful hands!
