YAPA: Non-Toxic Nail Polish

Yapa Nail Lacquer

Hey guys,

I wanted to share with you a new line of non-toxic nail lacquer MADE IN THE USA called Yapa!

While more and more people are becoming health conscious, it’s nice to see that cosmetic manufacturers are taking the time to develop safer products for “us” the consumer.  If you didn’t know i have always been a pretty health conscious, taking care of my body and making sure that i eat healthy.  In conjunction with my healthy lifestyle I have also begun to adapt that same regimen with my hair and skin care, choosing Paraben Free & Sulfate Free Products.
Now of course with this change also comes heavier price tag.  My theory is this… you only have 1 you… so it’s very important to take care of yourself inside and out. 🙂

With that being said, Yapa is another great NON-TOXIC 10-FREE Nail Lacquer brand.. and if you don’t know what 10-Free means… the Yapa brand makes their nail lacquers without the 10 Harmful Chemicals often found in ordinary over the counter cosmetics.  Take a look below.

As you can see the brush is fairly thin so, if you’re one who likes thinner nail polish brushes then you’ll be very happy.
I have smaller nails and find that it’s easier to paint my nails with thicker brushes.  But for french manicure’s i really like the thinner brush.  So… it’s a toss up.  I like them both provided the formula goes on smooth.

Yapa Nail Lacquers can be found on Amazon.com as well as Yapabeauty.com

Here are swatches of the 3 Yapa Nail Lacquers that were sent to me.

Silver: Faith by Yapa – $18
Shown with only 1 coat Faith is a super shiny, opaque metallic silver.  If you’re a lover of silver shades this one’s a great option.  

Blue:  Jackie by Yapa – $18
A gorgeous electric blue with a subtle shimmer.  Shown with 1 coat this one’s my favorite!  No streak issues.

Tangerine: Jean by Yapa – $18

Jean is my least favorite of the 3.  Due to the fact that it took me 3 coats to get an opaque finish.

Let me know your thoughts… would you pick up a bottle of YAPA to try?  Is it important to you to use non-toxic brands like Yapa and Zoya?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.
