You haven’t seen the horrors of what nail polish can do to your nails until you’ve tried to take off a black gel manicure. At home. With acetone. Did I mention it was a gel manicure?
Here’s the thing: having pretty, painted nails shouldn’t require you lose a layer of nail or canvas your pointers with bad chemicals. Thankfully, beauty brands have caught onto this, and that means there are now many nail lacquers that come “five free” — as in, free of five toxic chemicals, including the likes of formaldehyde.
And with the rise in non-toxic nail polishes, we’ve also seen a rise in non-toxic salons — shops that have sworn off potentially dangerous chemicals in the products they use. Want an all-natural, nontoxic salon experience? Here are five nail salons in Philly where you can find it.
Forget destroying your nails with gel polish: Juju Organics serves up Bio Seaweed Gel — a five-free gel polish that’s supposed to last two weeks or more. Not looking for gel? The “regular” organic manicure at this Society Hill salon comes with a natural sea-salt scrub and an herbal detoxifying and nourishing mask. While everything at this salon is all-natural and organic — which is awesome — you can also feel good about visiting Juju for it’s sustainable practices. At the salon, the energy is 100-percent wind powered, they use all biodegradable bags, energy efficient lighting, and are fume-free.
