Review: Honeybee Gardens Nail Polish

Pin It!

honeybeeBack in February, we published a guide to safer nail polishes.   Now that sandal weather is upon us, I wanted to pick up a safer nail polish for the summer.  Since I can get Honeybee locally, I purchased a bottle and set out to get a much needed pedicure.  I have to admit, that I was a little bit leary about using a water based nail polish.  It seemed a little clumpier, but I figured this was the price I pay for wanting to avoid chemicals.

I will say that it went on smoothly.  Smoother than I expected and dried pretty quickly.  Because I didn’t have a safer base or topcoat, I declined the salon’s and just went with just the polish I brought with me, which is chipping.  I wouldn’t say its chipped any more or less than conventional polish, but I definitely think it would have had more staying power with a base and top coat.   Honeybee’s site has lots of information about wearing their polish and how to keep it lasting longer.

Two of the best things that I love about this nail polish, though, is that it’s low VOC (volatile organic compounds), and it comes off with regular rubbing alcohol.    I don’t have to use highly smelly acetone!  Overall?  I highly recommend Honeybee Garden’s nail polish.  But invest in a bottle of the clear nail polish too!
