Is there a way for girls to have fun and paint their nails, but still be natural and safe?
I think so, and after testing over two dozen nail polishes rated non-toxic or less toxic, I’ve identified the safest nail polish for both adults and little girls.
This polish is a good choice for children because it barely has any odor. When reviewing non-toxic polishes for little girls, I did not worry as much about how long they lasted.
First, if you’re curious why you shouldn’t just grab any old national brand at the drugstore, be sure to educate yourself on why choosing safe nail polishes is so important.
You can also check out all the reviews, child and adult, in a comparison to find the best non-toxic nail polish, with plenty of progression pictures of how they all chipped off or stayed on over a week’s time.

Is This the Right Non-Toxic Nail Polish for You?
Even though a lot of proven toxic ingredients are missing in all the nail polish brands I reviewed, including this one, we still have to remember that we don’t know what we don’t know.
There’s always new research coming out, and it seems that scientists discover another problem with personal care product ingredients every day. I prefer to err on the side of caution and use these natural nail polish products in moderation, especially because little ones are more likely to put their fingers in their mouths and ingest whatever is on their fingernails.
But painting nails together is a really fun activity, so I’m glad you have this less toxic nail polish brand available.
