We could not believe our ears when we heard the news: Toxin-Free Gel Nail Polish was on the market… could it possibly be effective? We were excited to put it to the test! Lucky for us, BeauTeaBar.Com is our go to resource for safe beauty products so we were able to get our hands on it quickly!
Aila’s Top Coat, “Better than Gel” is truly fantastic! The bottle is so pretty and the polish itself glides on beautifully. It has the slightest gel-like consistency to it, leaving nails feeling firm and strong. On three separate occasions I put this top coat to the test and it never failed me. Probably the most impressive was my 4 day, boot – stomping, high mileage trek through Paris (celebrating my anniversary). I really couldn’t believe it when I pulled my boots off each night and saw that my red toe polish was completely intact… not a chip to be found!
I love the story of how the Aila company came to be. The two young founders were college best-friends, often doing their nails together during long chat sessions. They noticed their nails were getting more and more brittle over time. This happening, coupled with their respective careers in medicine and product branding, led them to develop this special polish. I love that not only do their products cause NO harm, they actually contribute goodness to our nails and our nail beds! I bring the top coat with me if I go to the salon for a manicure and the nail technicians are always impressed. I hope that means that the salons will be carrying it soon!
As we have shared with our readers during the past year, safe beauty is more important now than ever. While some people think that our nails and our scalp are not penetrable, the exact opposite is true. Chemicals quite easily leech into our bloodstreams through these tender areas. Our scalp and nails are very porous and deserve the utmost respect and safety when it comes to the products we choose to use on them. Sadly, the typical gel experience at salons is not healthy for us. Its worth reading more about that here.
It is such a relief that companies like AilaCosmetics.Com are creating products that work brilliantly and keep us safe! We are so impressed by this new company! They understand the dilemma that exists between green beauty and effective beauty. They are creating products that work well AND are safe for our body burden. A dream come true!
