12 Non-Toxic Nail Polishes To Paint Your Toddler's Tootsies

acquarella non toxic nail polish
Hazard by acquarella

Last week I posted about how my 3 year-old boy has been repeatedly asking to have his nails painted. I nearly bought some polish at the drugstore, but refrained. I’ll be honest. It was mostly because I forgot my wallet. But I had some pause about buying conventional nail polish after learning about all the crapola that’s in it.

So, like everything else that should be simple, I made this nail polish thing a big project. I started researching non-toxic nail polishes. I’m sure if I had tried this ten years ago, I wouldn’t have found much.

Luckily, nowadays there are many cosmetic companies that make polish without the big three horrible ingredients:


Dibutyl phthalate (see also phthalates)
