As every Style & Then Some girl knows the right shade of nail varnish is the perfect way to finish off an outfit. But is it just me or does the smell sometimes make you wonder what’s in it and whether it’s doing your nails any damage? That’s why I was very excited to discover a brand that makes eco-friendly nail varnish in all sorts of pretty colours.
Scotch Naturals sold by a-thread is the first non-toxic, eco nail varnish that I’ve ever heard of. I didn’t know that such a wonderful thing existed. This range doesn’t contain the nasty things like toluene, dibutyl phithalate, formaldehyde, acetone or heavy metals, and has the added bonus of being vegan, cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, paraben and gluten free. That’s quite an impressive CV.
It gets better; a-thread do a line of clothes and accessories, too. The LA based company, whose motto is: “shop and effect” (which means you can look good, while doing good), donates 5% of every sale to the charity of your choice. Not that you would need any incentive to open your purse other than the clothes themselves, which are oh so chic and on trend. Have a browse of their lovely chiffon shirts and dresses. You will leave feeling summery and inspired. I’ve really got into this whole shopping online thing, recently. I blame Pinterest. (Plus, I just love getting parcels in the post.)
