Hello my friend! :)
Today it comes to the issuesnatural and 5free nail polishes, as well as my storage for that. I have been intensively me with this subject lately and what I have found out so, I would like to share with friends today. :) In this article, I will answer frequently asked questions on the topic. Thanks to the inquisitive tried it out community for the suggestion!
Let's go! :)
Since last year there by Logona a completely natural, even certified organic Nail Polish. It is based on shellac and is therefore not vegan. In addition the range currently comprises five colors as well as a glossy coating for excess, Since the coatings inherently have a semi matte finish. You cost each 15€ and need to be removed from the nail the Logona nail polish remover. To do this you will find reviews for the Alabastermädchen, Makeup love or Woman wuselig.
The color picker is too small, the paints are too expensive or those who live vegan, He can focus on 5free coatings. These are not natural, but without some toxic ingredients. Also known natural cosmetics brands sell 5free nail polish. More of that later in the article.:)
The Term “5free” is used in connection with nail polish. If a paint “5free” is, then in this product not five toxic and classified as dangerous substances. There is also the term “3free”, in which just three toxic substances are not included.
The Term “5free” unfortunately is not protected, that means, each manufacturer can self-determined, what substances he means. But common are the following:
A varnish is normally 3free, if it does not contain the following three substances:
Formaldehyde is suspected to be carcinogenic and may cause many allergies and respiratory diseases. It is toxic even in small concentrations. More e.g.. here.
2. Dibutyl-Phtalat oder Phtalate
Phthalates are plasticizers, which are damaging the genetic material and to make due to the similarity to hormones also barren suspected.
In the European Union dibutyl phthalate is already in Baby- prohibited and children's toys. Some manufacturers advertise with 5free, no DBP (Dibutylphtalat) included, some close even the whole class of phthalates from. Personally, I agree to the stricter definition and avoid even nail polish with other phthalates, I personally just this classifies as dangerous. More information about phthalates, check here and here.
Toulol allowed only in nail polish, Not to be used in other cosmetics. It is a solvent, which trigger nerve damage, can make barren and lead to allergies.
Are not these two ingredients also in nail polish, we speak of 5free:
4. Formaldehyde resins
Formaldehyde resins can cause eczema and are to be harmful suspected, similar to formaldehyde.
Camphor is actually a natural remedy, which against muscle- and respiratory symptoms is used in small doses, as it improves circulation and expectorant and on the central nervous system. It can also be produced synthetically, and has some side effects, as shortness of breath or nausea, In addition, there can be confusion. In high doses it is highly toxic. Since it is only used in small amounts, I classify it as personally not so bad a, as the other substances, nevertheless I avoid it rather.
A substance, which is also often count towards the five substances, is
Rosin is a natural resin, which can trigger asthma and allergies and it may be formed in contact dermatitis. In addition, the vapor is harmful.
Course for the cosmetics always approximate and you will none of these substances in lethal concentration in nail polish find, However, I would personally not have in my nail polish these ingredients.
The designation “7free” often includes another, that the coatings are produced on animals and are vegan.
Well-known brands, advertise the order, 3make free or 5free nail polish are as:

Company 5free marked with paints usually pay more on the ingredients, where the nail polishes e.g.. are water-based or based on nitrocellulose, This is true, however, also apply to some drug-paints.
Spa Rituals and Scotch Naturals were earlier this year even strongly criticized, as in the supposedly natural paints Contaminants have been found. There was a similar incident a few years ago when the brand SANTE nail polishes, now the problem is resolved (s. here).
There is also in the drugstore masse varnishes, the 5free are, are not marked as such.
To find out, simply you need only a Look at the ingredients throw!
The five substances are hidden in several names, these ingredients should not be listed in the INCI'S:
And. To assist you a little, I have already asked many nail polish companies, if I could get and publish the ingredient lists of nail polishes, so you can use the Listen z.B. upload to your smartphone and look in the business, if your desired nail polish is 5free.
These lists are not only aware of the paints Listings, the 5free are, but also the whole ingredient lists. This includes all substances of concern highlighted above. Thus, if a part of the ingredients of a paint marked in red, he is after my (stricter something) Not criteria (!) 5free. Nevertheless, you can decide for yourself in this way, if you want to do without, for example, only to dibutyl phthalates or to all and see exactly, on which ingredient it is, I classifies the paint than not 5free.
Thus, I can present you the ingredients following brands now:
Edit: Caution, in Safari on the iPhone, the marks are not displayed, if you do, however, imported in iBooks, likely to fold it. For other wireless devices may also lead to difficulties. To test I have ever given a mark among the list, so you can see, if perhaps the red marks are displayed at all!
(To check: S.1 Perfect Stay – Phthalate)
(To check: P.7 color 01 It’s Showtime – Phthalate)
(To check: S.1 color 101 absolute pure – camphor)
(To check: S.1 Farbe 71S – Phthalat)
(To check: S. 06 Color 017- Phthalate)

By clicking on it, will reach you to the PDF file, in which the “not 5free varnishes” marked. If I get even provided more lists, I will add here and you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Co. keep you posted.
Of course, All statements without guarantee! It may be from time to time, that I have overlooked a substance, Sometimes I had the ingredients separately from the website copy, What a very nice job and was in the running can always go wrong. If you look at absolute 100% want to be sure, then go the INCI's your desired paint just once more even by looking at the bar or by. I hope, that these lists you are a help anyway.
Unfortunately, I can here not list all the brands, because some have no list or. have not yet responded to my request and I have not the time to photograph the INCI booklets in the store and digitize.
And! Not only from a brand, but by many, these are then usually also NaTrue or BDIH certified. For example, I have nail polish remover of the brand SANTE (about. 6€) and the brand Terra Naturi (about. 3€) tested and was very pleased with both.
I used to be a real Nagellack-Junkie (and very well known for), so my cosmetic Love began in the first place to. When converting to natural cosmetics are they all migrated in a large cardboard box, I was firmly convinced, that the paints were full of toxic substances.
Later I discovered 5free Lacke and asked me, if not some of my paints could be 5free. Eventually, I took the time, wrote to the company and asked as to the ingredients of the old varnish and see, after sorting out remained almost half of paints, I can now use without concerns continue. To my surprise, hardly nail polish had dried, which are now. the, which were no longer usable, were almost completely empty.
Used to like nail polish shelves very, my friend gave me even tinkered times a, However, since I have a very small apartment and my cosmetic storage consumes a lot of space, I have recently a small Nail pockets created, to store the paints in a drawer can, but nevertheless to have an overview of all nail polishes in choosing. The idea for this I have from “It’s faaaabulous!“
In addition you need the following:
– Nail polish subjects
– something for labeling (e.g.. Labelmaker or pen)
– your nail polish :)
You just have to paint only the plastic nails with your nail polishes.
I have two layers used, because otherwise I always twice paintshop to achieve a high opacity. In addition I have but does not use a clear coat.
The great thing about the plastic nails? They are easy recoating again with nail polish remover, they must not be thrown away, if the paint is used up, but can easily get a new coat of paint!
Even then all lettered and completed! Paintshop best next to an open window, because with so much paint smell is very intense.
Subsequently, the individual Threaded plastic nails on the bolt, naturally sorted by color with me :). That is also the great advantage over nail wheels, because so can compare similar paints not so well together. When subjects a new paint can easily be threaded in between.
I even some plastic nails left, my subjects are not yet fully!
Perfect for me, to decide, on what color I just feel like, without that I always have to dig out all paints. By the way can be so great painting also Farverläufe :),
How do you like this idea to keep track to?
How do you keep your nail polish on?
Do you know else a brand, which I nail polish ingredients once “by check” is or are 5free? :)
What you watch when buying nail polish?
