In order to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic Games I have put together my top five of 5-free and cruelty-free nail polishes.
Nail polish as we know is unable to be organic by its very nature, however the most natural of (non-water based) polishes are not only free from the big 3 carcinogenic chemicals Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) and Toluene, but they are also free from Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor.
Catrice – It’s All I Can Blue
This is a lovely bright powder blue polish – a perfect colour match for the blue Olympic ring!
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics – Traffic
A long lasting and highly pigmented brilliant yellow – and it’s vegan friendly!
Essence – Black Is Back
A cruelty-free, easy to apply, quick-dry polish with intense colour payoff.
Available in Mainland Europe via Essence website
Zoya – Shawn
This is a fabulous grass green polish, vegan friendly and cruelty-free.

Sante – Oriental Red
I love this warm blood red polish, a great choice for your Olympic nails.
