My nails have not been this long and strong since I was in high school – almost 30 years ago. Over the past years, I have done acrylics and gels. I have also just clipped my nails and worn them short. I could never find a polish that would stay on my slightly oily nail beds for more than 3 days without chipping…until now. Ella Mila to the rescue!
My new discovery
After several years of searching for the perfect polish, I feel like I have gotten pretty doggone close. Ella+Mila entered my life a few months ago on a whim. I visited the website and fell for the pretty shades. I also saw that these polishes are 7-free. What does that mean? According the Ella+Mila site:
“All Ella+Mila polishes are not only made without the 3 common chemicals found in nail polishes (Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde), but also without 4 other very dangerous chemicals (Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, TPHP and Xylene). Ella+Mila polishes are FREE of these SEVEN chemicals.”
More and more, I appreciate products that have less chemicals in them, especially the products that I put directly on my body. (Incidentally, Ella+Mila is branded as a vegan product.) And I am pretty happy with the fact that Ella+Mila is made in the USA!
Ella+Mila offers a wide range of colors in different styles, including opaques, textured (think: matte), an my favorite, metallics. The line also offers collections of colors, such as BonBon (pastels), that showcase similar colors palettes and intensities. In addition, EM has nail treatments such as their cuticle oil, a soy nail polish remover, and a gel-like top coat.
