My four year old like so many little girls, loves to have her nails painted. However she also still sucks her fingers (which is another issue all together), so I have always been concerned about painting her nails with nail varnish because of the toxic chemicals that she will be getting in her system. I have been looking around for a while to find an alternative that is more suited to children.
I work in the area of Notting Hill, so I am lucky enough on my lunch breaks to frequent this up market area of West London. I have been doing a bit of research as one of my next blog posts will be a spotlight on the best things about Notting Hill, but in the meantime I wanted to share Nailmatic with you. It is a French brand but it is stocked in many specialist children’s shops and boutiques in the UK.
“Especially formulated for children, this water-based varnish has defeated the nasty products. It magically disappears with warm soapy water. Made without organic solvents, Phthalatete-Free, Formaldehydede-Free, Toluene-Free, BPA-Fee and Fragrance-Free”
I found this great product at Tippy Toes Kids, 243 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill,they also sell a great range of children’s designer clothes and accessories, plus they have a Kids Hairdressing Salon in the basement.
Amelia had her nails painted with a pink shade called Bella and a top coat sparkle coat, Super. Both Amelia and I were impressed with the results and the nail polish stayed on all day and just washed off when it was time for bed!
