It is very important for the hormone balance necessary for fertility that we keep toxic ingredients off of and out of our bodies. This definitely includes nail polish! Several studies have shown that chemicals in many popular brands of nail care can leach in to our systems and cause hormone disruption including reoprductive abnormalities.
We have found products available at alternative grocery stores and carted them along to our favorite nail salons, but that was before we knew about Base Coat Nail Salons!!
For a company that was founded a mere 5 years ago, Base Coat has not only made a name for itself in the beauty industry but is slowly becoming an all time favorite for those who seek out safe, natural and cruelty free products and services. I was able to stop in and see for myself what all the buzz was about. After one visit I can say that not only were my expectations met, after talking to my manicurist about the company and their above and beyond standards, I was in love.
Not only does Base Coat use products that are made in the USA, vegan, free of hormone disrupters, cruelty free and gluten free, they have also been taking steps to become even more environmentally friendly. They have done away with one time use foam flip flops ask all clients arrive with open-toed shoes from home. They also use bio-degradable toe dividers for pedis and offer a discount for those who bring back empty product containers for refill. The conscientious level of care is apparent in every aspect of the Base Coat experience. To top if off, the salons are absolutely beautiful and impeccably clean. They have 2 beautiful locations in Colorado with one in Stapleton and one in Lohi. Make an appointment with them soon https://www.basecoatnailsalon.com/
ps. My pedi still looks great after 1 1/2 weeks 🙂
To say the least the companys slogan, #TreatYoSelf is an understatement
