la couleur couture - My Favourite Non Toxic and Vegan friendly Nailpolish

For centuries we have been painting and polishing our nails so we would look amazing from tip to toe.

Originating in China dating back to 3000 B.C. nail polish is now a $768 million industry in the US. Hard to image it started out as a blend of organic material and natural dyes that ladies would soak their fingers in to achieve the desired effect.

Now, with a dizzying array of colours, hues, textures and designs, it's no wonder a not so simple bottle of polish can round off that fashionable look.

I have been painting my nails for years and have grown more and more concerned over the toxicity and chemical content of these tiny pots of paints. There have been a couple of occasions where I felt slightly light headed at the end of a paint session.

Needless to say I was over the moon when I discovered La Couleur Couture.

La Couleur Couture LACC vegan friendly non toxic nail polish

la couleur couture is a unique vegan friendly nail lacquer collection formulated without toxic and harsh chemicals like formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, camphor and toluene.

Their unique basecoat formula ensures long lasting protection, while their topcoat offers unmatched diamond-like shine. Each polish contains a protective UV inhibitor so women can wave goodbye to brittle and yellow nails, and say hello to gorgeously coloured and healthy nails!

Headquartered in Vancouver and manufactured in New York, la couleur couture is devoted to providing you with couture-quality, fashion-forward and edgy colors that are affordable, vegan friendly and cruelty free.

All these colours are so wearable and fabulous. I couldn't wait to put them on.

Having tried several different brands of nail polish, fussed over the formula and struggled with the brush I must say LACC is a god send.

The polish itself glides on effortlessly, not goopy nor runny, just the perfect consistency.

The brush is amazing! The right size and tension to deliver the perfect application in one stroke.

I am seriously tempted to save one of the brushes and only paint with that no matter what polish I use. Not that I will need to considering the wide breadth of this collection. Shop them here http://laccbeauty.com/shop/

So versatile too.
