Nail polish can be one of those things that seems too small to make an effort to find greener alternatives, however it seems a lot more worthwhile once you consider that a common ingredient in everyday nail polishes can be formaldehyde (yes, a baby-deforming substance). Not only this, but the acetone that required to remove these nail polishes is also really bad for your health, so we recommend these all-natural, effective brands that won't harm you but also won't have you scrubbing your fingers raw.

Priti NYC
This all-organic soy-based product is 100 per cent natural, biodegradable and free from petroleum products and carcinogens. It is derived from soy and corn crops and comes in three scents. Priti NYC's range has expanded to incorporate products like recycled glass nail files and the company has contributed to a number of independent eco-organisations like Teens Turning Green.Their whole line has an unflinching focus on maintaining a prestigious product while not compromising on nasty chemicals. The nail polish remover comes in a unique biodegradable packaging for $22.50 (112 ml). Their products and further information can be found online at Priti NYC.

Honeybee Gardens
The Honeybee Gardens remover contains no acetone and minimal VOCs. Enriched with horsetail plant extracts to strengthen nails, it removes both water-based and conventional polishes. Their Nail polishes also avoid the nasty resin's and drying chemicals preferring instead to utilise the natural resins found in soy. $13.20 (120 ml).
Find it online at Honeybee Gardens.
