As a general life solution to over toxicity in nail polish, I don’t think this range is it, BUT it’s absolutely brilliant for expectant mums or kids who want to copy ‘mummy’s manicure’ because Snails (Safe Nails) is formulated from three basic ingredients; water, acrylic polymer and non-toxic colourants. You can literally just wash it off with soap and water. 


Everyone knows that even though in most polishes, toluene and formaldehyde are gone, just by the very smell, a pot of varnish isn’t exactly chemical free and although it isn’t a key factor for me, some people really want to downgrade the chemicals they are exposed to.


Snails is actually very cute, but the ‘wow’ shades we are used to seeing aren’t there and I’m guessing that it is impossible to produce the highly vivid finishes without adding chemicals into the mix. But, as they stand they’re sweet, gentle colours and well worth a trial and particularly as a good starter polish for kids who want to play dress-up or start experimenting with nail polish.
