Nail Polish

Water-based nail polish is on its way to Just Goods. Here are some tips found at the naturalfamilyonline website: How to Use Organic Nail Polish

In general, organic polishes provide the same bright, water proof, scratch resistant finish as their toxic counterparts. However, if your nails are dry, you may need to treat them with a moisturizer before applying polish. This will make it easier to remove the polish. To maximize its length of wear, apply the polish at night. While it takes about the same time to dry to a “tack free” state, it can take four to six hours for the polish to cure at the molecular level.

If you go to sleep with a fresh manicure, by the time you wake up, your nails polish will be ready for even the harshest conditions. When you're finished with your manicure, store your polish where it stays at room temperatures. Cold temperatures can thicken polish. If this happens, just add a drop of water and shake.

 

 

How do I remove water-based nail polish?

Suncoat Water-based nail polish has been formulated to adhere well to the nail bed. If left on nails for an extended time, it may require a little more effort to remove. For easy removal, remove the polish weekly.

Remove WITH Suncoat natural nail polish remover:

Suncoat natural nail polish remover is recommended although solvent based remover will take off the polish. Dab the remover onto nails using a Q-tip / or a cotton ball, and allow at least 2 minutes for the remover to soften the polish. Then rub the nails until the polish is fully removed. Repeat when necessary.

Rinse hands with water to remove residue.

Remove WITHOUT Suncoat natural nail polish remover:

Soak nails in hot water for couple of minutes, then gently scrap off the polish using a fingernail.

Important: If your nails are weak and damaged, please consult your health care provider for advice.
