Review: Keeki Nail Polish and Base Coat

Category: , , , , , , , / 6/10/2012
I love a little nail polish to brighten my day and accessorize for each season. But I think we've all had unfortunate experiences with that awful "nail polish smell." My personal worst was when I was riding on a train in Europe when a woman next to me started painting her nails. The entire compartment reeked and boy, was I glad when I reached my stop.

If you're planning to paint your nails on a train or anywhere else, I encourage you to think of your own health, the environment, and those around you when selecting your nail polish. Consider gentle, non-toxic polishes such as those by Keeki Pure & Simple.

Pros:
  • Available in fun colors
  • No "nail polish smell"
  • Safe for children
  • Gentle ingredients
  • More affordable than many natural nail polishes
  • Vegans and gluten-free
  • Non-toxic and environmentally-friendly
Cons:
  • Chips off in chunks
Summary:
I first was drawn to Keeki because of their exceptionally low hazard ratings. Both the polish and the remover are rated an excellent 1 on the EWG Skin Deep database. With a wide color selection, cute packaging, and no odor, this is a fantastic nail polish option.

My only complaint with this polish is that, even with a base and top coat, it tended to chip off in chunks. I've also had this problem with some conventional polishes, so I tend to avoid wearing polish on my fingernails. However, it did seem to have more staying power on my toenails.

If you're looking for an eco-friendly polish, especially one that is branded and safe for children and teens, Keeki is an excellent choice.

Also available on Amazon.com: Best Friends Base & Top Coat Pack and Nail Polish.
