The Ultimate Guide to Creating the Perfect Green Nail Tip

As more and more people become conscious about the impact of their actions on the environment, the beauty industry has also been taking steps towards sustainability. A popular trend in the nail art world is the green nail tip. Gone are the days of acrylics and traditional French tips – it’s time to embrace a fresher take on nail design and make it an environmentally-friendly one too!

Here’s a list of tips to achieve the perfect green nail tip:

1. Invest in non-toxic polishes.
Start with a good base layer by using non-toxic nail polishes such as Zoya, RGB or Ella + Mila. These polishes are made without harmful toxins such as Toluene, Formaldehyde, and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) which are known to cause health problems.

2. Use eco-friendly tools.
Ditch the throwaway emery boards and invest in a glass or metal file that can last for a very long time and is more gentle on your nails. You could also use a bamboo cuticle pusher. It’s biodegradable and sustainable.

3. Cleanse gently.
Remove all residues on your nails with 100% natural cotton pads or muslin cloths that don’t contain synthetic fibers. Avoid harsh acetone-based nail polish removers that emit fumes. They’re harmful to your lungs and the environment.

4. Choose green nail tips for a more natural look.
Opt for green nail tips that are more subtle and nature-inspired like an ombre of neutral shades. This way, you’re channeling your love for nature in every part of your nail art.

5. Finish with cruelty-free topcoat.
Complete your green nail tips with a friendly topcoat. One of our favorites is the Little Ondine topcoat. It’s fast drying, non-toxic and cruelty-free. It won’t chip as long as you don’t use your nails as tools.

In conclusion, embrace a more eco-friendly approach to nail design by opting for green nail tips. With these tips, you can elevate your nail art game while also keeping the environment clean. Good luck!
