My initial incentive here was saving cash.
However, an added bonus has been safety. I've learned that pedicures come with all sorts of nasty health hazards. I discovered that most nail polish is toxic.
Which is why I'm happy to report that my favorite nail polish, which you can buy on Amazon or at Target, is a pretty light pink shade called "Ballet Slippers" by Essie. That's it in the image below. Nice, isn't it?
Essie is a non-toxic brand of nail polish. There are others, if you want to shop around.
Queen Elizabeth and Kate, Duchess of CambridgeAnd if saving money doesn't spur you to action, much less having toxic chemicals seeping into your nail beds, consider this: This same Essie shade (Ballet Slippers) is said to be the favorite nail polish of Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton.
My. Who knew the royals were so simple-savvy?
