Pretty toes

I hate neglecting my feet once sandal season comes to an end, so every so often I like to scrub my feet with a homemade, natural foot scrub and then give myself a little pedicure. As I was painting my toes last night, the smell made me think: Are there eco-friendly nail polish alternatives? Adria Vasil, of Ecoholic fame, recommends No-Miss and Suncoat nail polish. Though they aren't 100 per cent natural, she says, they're better than a lot of products on the market. Both are commonly available at health stores. Vasil also says that Revlon and L'Oreal's Jet-Set Shine are free of formaldehyde and toluene (two big environmental offenders that are often found in nail polish). Also, a brief search on the Internet introduced me to Acquarella, described as water based and non toxic, and Peace Keeper (which also carries a vegan, biodegradable nail polish remover). Acquarella and Peace Keeper can be purchased online. Prefer to get pampered by an esthetician? Bring your eco-friendly nail polish to the spa with you. Here's to happy feet!
