    Great post. I’ve been missing my polished toes and wanting to find more eco-friendly options. Great tip about disposing of conventional polish with your city’s hazardous-waste collection department. My guess is almost no one knows they should do this.

      Thanks Debbie! I know what you mean…the hazardous waste thing was a surprise to me, too.

    I am so glad Hard Candy is still around! Zoya polish is still the best for the money, the colors are really saturated and wear really well.

      Thanks, Amanda Michele! I was glad to learn that Hard Candy makes a three free variety…I definitely have fond memories of painting my nails with that stuff as a teen.

    Why is the brand China Glaze not up there? Its free of all toxic ingredients and a much bigger brand than the above? ?

      There are a number of three free brands that we couldn’t include, since we only picked our five faves. Thanks for the suggestion, Selina! Do they have a website you can share?
