NAIL POLISH CANADA

Pure Anada: Canadian Nail Polish

We’re excited to introduce you to the low toxin nail polish available from local Morden Manitoba shop, Pure Anada. Their nail polish is called the ‘5-free’ nail polish collection. We’ve been testing out (and loving!) lots of their polishes over the last year. I always seem to gravitate towards pink nail polish. In the picture below, I’m wearing the Debonair colour. If you’d like to learn more about what ‘5-free’ means, scroll down.

Pure Anada has over 30 colours to choose from in their Canadian nail polish collection, including base and top coats. Their base coat is one of our favourites we’ve ever tried because it really feels like it’s protecting our nails. Whether you have one colour that you love and use over and over again, or if you like to switch things up with the seasons, they have neutrals, brights and even some glitter options. A few of my personal favourite colours from Pure Anada are ‘Debonar’ and ‘Spring Fling’. 

If you’re wondering what 5-free means and why it’s so important, here are the details. In traditional nail polishes there are many harmful chemicals including three that have become more well known – dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde and toluene. 

Not only has Pure Anada removed these three nasty chemicals from its nail polish, but they’ve also taken the extra step (thankfully) to remove two other harmful chemicals from their polishes – formaldehyde resin and camphor – which is where the ‘5-free’ comes from.

Why does it all matter? Well, probably most alarming is that a few of these chemicals are known carcinogens* meaning they’re a potential cancer causing substance. Equally scary potential impacts are reproductive and thyroid problems. 5-free nail polish from Pure Anada contains less harmful chemicals than traditional polishes.

BKind: Vegan Nail Polish

Bkind is a local Montreal shop offering Canadian nail polish. Their nail polish takes things a step further and is 77% plant-based and is free from 21 toxins found in traditional nail polish. They have so many incredible colours to choose from and if you buy four, you’ll get 50% off which is a great deal. BKind is also a Canadian skin care brand creating products using natural ingredients.

Paint It Pretty 

Another Canadian nail polish brand is Paint It Pretty, a local Ontario business based in Beamsville. Their vegan nail polish is all made in Canada in small batches and is considered ‘5-free’ which we explained above. They have some amazing unique colours that have so much shimmer to them.

BinChic’s Boutique Nail Polish

BinChic’s Boutique is a local Alberta shop based in Camrose creating beautiful nail polish. Each polish you see in their shop is handmade in small batches and is considered ‘5-free’ like the other Canadian nail polish brands we have mentioned above. They have lots of colours and we love their sparkle collection.
