10 Priti Toes

I am certainly not a nail polish expert save for knowing what colors I like and having the expectation that the polish on my toe nails should last a good week, at least. I rarely paint my finger nails because no matter what brand I use, they chip within day 2 of a manicure. So when I indulge, the color goes on the toes.

I don’t paint my nails too often, but there are times when a pedicure is in order (hello Kauai!) so I have been seeking out brands without the big nasty culprits. The three most common nail polish chemicals you want to avoid are dibutyl phthalate (DBP which is a phthalate), toluene and formaldehyde. I’m not saying nail polishes that do not use these three chemicals are necessarily “safe” for frequent use, so use your own judgement regarding what you want to put on your body and how often.

Priti, the spa and maker of gorgeous, non-toxic nail polishes is a fabulous line to explore. Their color offerings are gorgeous, vivid and varied. Chelsea Star was my first pick from their 100+ line of polishes, and I am smitten with its violet-blue hue. The color description on the SpiritBeautyLounge site is “Deep Electric Blue-Violet,” but I found Chelsea Star to be more on the violet end of the spectrum which the above pictures don’t capture well. Nevertheless, you can see that it’s a gorgeous color!

And as for how it lasts? I am on day 6 of my Priti polish and happily there are no chips or show of wear. I received this bottle from SpiritBeautyLounge to review, but I have since ordered three more colors, Blue Eyed Brunette, Hula Girl Rose, and Hardy Water Lily. I’ll let you know how those work out.


Update: Here are pictures of Blue Eyed Brunette and Hula Girl Rose.

  1. I have wanted to try out some non-toxic NP brands and this will go on the list. Thank you Trish as usual for bringing us great reviews on these products!

  2. My nails are so soft and peely (and they rip!) that I actually LOOK for brands with formadehyde! (yeah, I know it’s not the best but I figure I’m so old and have been using it for so long now that it’s already taken up residence in my body – a little more won’t hurt:-). But for those who do not want it, these polishes/colors look fabulous!

    • You’re cracking me up Anita! :-D Anyway, who wants formaldehyde to feel left out right? ;-)
      But seriously, these colors are so enticing, you just might want to give them a try!

    • Thank you! I just peeked at your blog. I love all your makeup looks! I wish I could read Swedish is it?

      Best,

  3. I’ve just started using Priti too. So many great colours! I’m the same – usually just a paint-on-the-toes gal, but lately I’ve been painting my finger nails too.

  4. I’ve been curious about these for sometime for all of the obvious reasons. And they seem to have a great color selection. I have weak nails and I can’t seem to find anything that lasts. I’ll have to give these a try.
