Polished Mama Review & Giveaway

~~~THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED~~~

Photobucket

What woman doesn't love freshly painted nails? Spring is here and it's time to start taking extra special care of nails and adding a splash of color. Traditional nail polishes contain toxins such astoluene, xylene, formaldehyde, acetone, or dibutyl phthalate. Did you know that some of these toxins are used in products such as paint thinners that we would never think about exposing to our skin? These toxins cause more than just headaches, some are endocrine disruptors which is very serious pregnant or not! For those of us who are pregnant some of us choose to forgo using nail polish during our pregnancy because of the harsh chemicals that are in regular nail polish. However, we no longer have to go without pretty nails for the summer (or for the delivery room!) with the non toxic nail polish by Polished Mama!

Polished Mama sent me a variety of their products to try out. I received a bottle of the Polished Mama Moisturizing Remover, The Polished Mama Protection System: Base Coat and Top Coat, and a bottle of the Polished Mama nail polish in the Craving color. I haven't painted my toes since I became pregnant because I didn't want to use the chemical laden regular nail polish. Needless to say my feet were ready for a little pampering before baby's arrival. So at 37 weeks pregnant I gave myself a pedicure with Polished Mama products! After the prep work I applied one layer of base coat, then two layers of Craving and finished with a top coat layer. All of the polishes went on smoothly and dried quickly. The Polished Mama nail polishes are amazing because there is no strong chemical smell! I was able to sit in the comfort of my living room with the rest of the family while I painted away. In the past when I used traditional nail polishes I would have to hide away in the bathroom (and breathe the fumes by myself!) so my toddler wasn't around to breathe them. My first Polished Mama pedicure looked great.

Two and a half weeks later I decided to take off the old polish and re-do. I only had little chips in the paint on the very end of a couple of toes otherwise it still looked great. I used the Polished Mama Moisturizing Remover to get off the nail polish. This is a safe gentle remover that you don't have to worry about using. It also contains aloe vera and vitamin E to keep your nails healthy as you wipe away the polish. The Moisturizing Remover smelled wonderful and it worked great. However, it did take a bit more remover to get off the nail polish compared to regular nail polish removers. I know that is because the ingredients are not harsh so this is perfectly fine with me.



I am very impressed with the quality of the Polished Mama products. It is strange to think that so many companies use chemicals in their nail polishes that are so harmful to our bodies (and to our babies in our tummies!) when they can develop a safe nail polish like Polished Mama products that work just as well!

Thank you to Polished Mama for providing the products to me to have beautiful toes in the delivery room :-)
