To help you find a safe alternative to conventional nail polish, I have complied a list of non-toxic water based nail polish brands for kids and grown-ups. It includes both long-lasting and peel-off formulas. If you have been following Pretty Painted Nails for a while you are probably familiar with many of these water based nail polish brands. If you are new to water based nail polish, this will serve as an introduction.
If you know any other water based brands to add to the list, please share in the comments.
