Nail care

4 ways to Green Your Nail care

When it comes to greening your nail care, the most important step is to choose products—polishes, removers, and other elixirs—that contain the least amount of chemical solvents. Next, look for products that are packaged in recycled and recyclable material. If you have your nails done in a salon, try to find one that uses low-chemical product lines, recycles their waste, and employs energy- and water-efficient practices.
