Well, it’s like comparing an oil painting with a watercolor painting…. They both look great, but which would you want your kids to do? Eeeeeexactly. Hopscotch Kids Nail Polish (I’m sorry, WaterColors) is a line designed with children in mind. That means this water-based formula is safe and also a lot more fun to use than the stuff you find in the pharmacy (no offense, pharmacies)! You’re probably saying, “Well, that’s great and all, but just because it’s water-based doesn’t make it safe. What about all of the other stuff in nail polish?”. It’s a great question, so here are the specifics:
- It’s non-toxic.
- It’s hypoallergenic.
- It’s gluten and paraben free.
- It’s eco-friendly (vegan, cruelty-free, biodegradable)
- It’s made of water, acrylic polymer, butoxy diglycol, and non-toxic colorants.
- It dries quickly and because it doesn’t have toxins in it, it doesn’t smell toxic, something we can ALL appreciate!
What they DON'T have is ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, nitrocellulose, acetone, or heavy metals.
They also make a soy-based nail polish remover that we carry, and the polish itself is available in a wide array of colors (the dark blue 'Ink a Bink a Bottle of Ink' is so far the best-seller here), all with fun playground rhymes for names. The WaterColors nail polish retail for $13.95, which for a safe, awesome, and fun product is a steal. And they're selling fast so get yours soon and get home and have a manicure party!
