Earthy Nail Polish
We love Earthy Nail Polish, and they’re a fabulous choice for summer nails. Born from a frustration towards unsustainable cosmetics that do more harm than good, their mission is to offer the best polish with the least impact on the planet. They do this by using natural origin and bio-sourced materials with sustainable packaging.
The vegan Earthy Nail Polish range uses a signature bamboo camp that’s both decomposable and sustainable. They’ve ditched all excess packaging and their waste management policy includes reusable tanks and drums and the recycling of solvents. All of their nail polishes and treatments are produced with a platinum 2020 Ecovadis Sustainability rating.
Earthy Nail Polish comes in an array of beautiful colours to help you rock the summer this year.
