I don’t have my thumb on the pulse of every trend in fashion and style but I like to think I’m not totally in the dark when it comes to those things.  Even though I prefer less chemicals I still read fashion and beauty magazines and watch for the seasonal trends that pop up.  Nail polish color is one of them.  Granted most nail polish is not a notoriously “green” item but I can’t give up my mani pedis.  What I can do is choose fashionable colors that are made by brands that follow the “3 Free” rule.  That is: Free of Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde and Toluene. (Check out my favorite nail polish blog All Laquered Up for a great breakdown of what and why)

When I got a few samples of Dashing Divas new colors that were all over the runways at Fashion Week, I was tickled to see they have 3 Free formulas.  The colors gracing the runway? Sheer pinks, dark gunmetal metallic, matte blacks and burgundy.  I love all of their colors – even the ones I never would think I would wear, I like to wear.  From their Fall Collection, a metallic neutral called No More Alimony is shiny and awesome.  Hard to put on but worth the effort.  A fun “night out” color.  The Fall Collection is delicious and perfect for this weather and season.  I am totally wearing Bitter Sweet for Halloween!

They also have a neat product called Make-It Matte that transforms your color to a perfectly matte finish.  I thought at first, “Why?” but after I tried it – FUN.  I also like this on bare nails too.  This is great for men as well.

Overall is this the perfect, from nature, totally green hippie brand? No but they’re free of the big 3 so if you’re a mani girl like me, you will take it where you can get it.
