What a beautiful way to fashionably be kind to you and the planet. I love these beautiful spring colors. And you can paint your little Priti princess guilt free!

 Priti NYC polishes are all completely non-toxic and made without toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DHB) and formaldehyde- all known carcinogenic ingredients. The luxury polishes are fast drying, chip resistant, contain a UV inhibitor, and are extremely durable and glossy. They are also completely safe for use on children and moms-to-be. Available in over 100 different shades including metallics, mattes, bright neons, rich darks, classic nudes, and everything in between, limited color selection due to ecological restraints has officially become a thing of the past.

Why does this matter?
-TOLUENE which causes rapid, shallow breathing, chemical pneumonia,
blurred vision, dry, cracked skin, and drowsiness also effects the kidneys
and the nervous system.  It may also cause an exaggerated feeling of
well-being, headache, staggering tremors, and convulsions.
-FORMALDEHYDE is a strong allergen and irritant to which humans have
a very low odor threshold, also a known carcinogen.  It increases airway
resistance when inhaled, probably because of local irritation and release of
inflammatory mediators. Additionally, formaldehyde is a strong contact allergen.
Acute and chronic dermatitis was once a common complaint in the beauty
parlor industry because of using formaldehyde in fingernail finishes.

-DIBUTYL PHTHALATE (DBP) which are linked to reproduction system
         problems and underdeveloped genitals in newborn boys.

Yikes, better to be safe then sorry. Now go be priti!
