Last night I was reading a beauty blog (sorry, I don’t remember which one) and the blogger has posted a photo of her 16 months little girl. She was so cute, but then I realized that the baby had her nails done by her father. Hmmm… What? I thought that she is just 16 months old and that normal nails polishes could be really harmful. Just think that certain nail polishes contain dangerous ingredients for adults(DBP,toluene,formaldehyde e.t.c). Why expose a child to play with toxic substances?
Suddenly I started to think that if I had a daughter I would never let her use cosmetics before a certain age. I don’t think that they are necessary for babies and little girls! And when she would start to use cosmetics and nails polishes, I would be very careful of the products I would buy for her and let her use.
A few minutes later I discovered a product I have never heard of; a nail polish safe for your little princesses. But what is it about???
Well, Snails® Kids Water Colours is a revolutionary new range of children’s nail polishes. Snails® (Safe-Nails) is unique, colourful fun for little girls and their mums that is 100% safe and the company ensures that no harm comes to our children.
These new nail polishes are free of harmful chemicals; they are made of three simple ingredients: water, acrylic polymer and non toxic colourants. Plus, they wont’s stain clothes or carpets(yes, they were created by a mother), they wash off with water and they don’t need any toxic smelly nail remover on young hands.
And some more info about Snails®: the nail polishes are manufactured in France and were created by Jeanette Sklivanou, a half British and half Greek mum based in Greece. In other words, it’s a 100% European product.
