Turn in Your Toxins!

What's in YOUR nail polish? Are you afraid to learn the answer to this question? You should be! The use of toxic chemicals seems to be the norm when it comes to nail care products. It's much cheaper to use low-quality products, like Formaldehyde, Toluene, and phthalates, to produce inexpensive nail polish and remover.

But as the old saying goes, you pay for what you get.

When you buy super cheap, chemical-full nail products, you may be putting your health at risk. The three chemicals I listed above can cause cancer, birth defects, respiratory problems, neurological damage, and reproductive issues just to have a few.

Now you can change your dirty ways! From now until May 15th, butter LONDON is inviting you to turn in any three nail polishes containing any of these chemicals. In return, you'll receive a free bottle of butter LONDON's "3 Free" Lacquer. Pile up your old stuff and head to butter LONDON store or fashion boutique across the country.

While you're at it, go over to to track down boutiques that carry your favorite designers and beauty products and to get more info on the Turn In Your Toxins campaign. You can also go to for full details and locations.

butter LONDON's "3 Free" nail lacquer contains no Formaldehyde, Toluene, or phthalates and comes in amazing colors. Plus they have neat rectangular bottles that are easier to store than the traditional nail polish bottles.

Actually, most of the cheaper brands removed the "big three" quicker than the more expensive brands. Wet 'n' Wild, the cheapie $1 store line had big 3 free at least back in 1998 (one of my oldest polishes in my collection); bigger lines such as OPI have switched to toxin free recently, so there are brands at all levels, not just these expensive boutique polishes that are now safe.
