Dazzle Dry toxin free nail polish

April 2, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 1 Comment

My finger nails rarely break (unless I try to use them as pliers or screwdrivers) and are in such rude good health that I have to resort to clipping them when they get too long (I credit Bareille's nail strengthener for this). Within days of applying a nail polish - even with an expensive manicure - my nails, flake and break. I've tried polish without formaldehyde (the ingredient that is commonly blamed for drying out nails) without success. So I am very excited to find VB Cosmetics' Dazzle Dry.

This new range of polish claims to be a world first. I don't know about that, but Dazzle Dry certainly looks worth a try. In addition to being formaldehyde free, it has no nitrocellulose (although I haven't been able to find out why I should be glad about this), no phthalate (this does unspeakable things to hormones and is banned from children's toys in Europe), and no toluene (a toxic paint thinner).

I have bought a bottle ($9) in Rose Quartz with the base coat at $12.50. Fingers crossed.

    <p>Nitrocellulose is the primary film former in all other nail lacquers. Nitrocellulose is the main cause of yellowing in nail polish. Non yellowing top coats are nitrocellulose free but all lacquers except Dazzle Dry contain nitrocellulose. if you are using a non yellowing top coat on top of traditional base coats and polishes, you will still experience the yellowing. So having a nitrocellulose-free nail polish system is the only way to prevent the yellowing. </p>
