Choose Health Over Harm: The ella+mila Way

In the ever-evolving world of beauty, where the quest for the next best thing never ends, gel nail polish has reigned supreme for its durability and glossy finish. However, beneath its perfect facade lie hidden dangers—UV exposure, difficult removal, and the risk of allergic reactions—that prompt a much-needed conversation about healthier alternatives. It's time to turn the spotlight on ella+mila, a pioneer in clean beauty that offers a safer, kinder approach to nail care, recognized by Target and other major retailers as a category leader.

Unveiling the Truth About Gel Manicures

UV Exposure: The curing process for gel polish requires UV light, akin to that of tanning beds, which dermatologists warn can lead to skin damage. It's a concerning aspect that has many rethinking their salon visits.

Harsh Removal: The process of removing gel polish is not only tedious but damaging. Soaking hands in acetone, coupled with excessive buffing and scraping, can leave nails dry, brittle, and injured.

Allergic Reactions: The chemicals found in gel polish can also pose a risk of allergic reactions, affecting users in ways that range from mild irritation to severe discomfort.

Wait, Before You Scroll Any Further...

Love this polish!

The color is soft and pretty. I did base coat, color , and top coat. Nails looked great for a week. I also purchased the nail fix because my nails were in bad shape after having acrylics for years. My nails are in much better shape now!

Redefining Nail Polish Removal

In line with its holistic philosophy, ella+mila offers a non-acetone based nail polish remover with Vitamins A, C & E . This innovative product counters the disadvantages of traditional acetone removers—such as unpleasant smells and skin irritation—providing a gentler, more pleasant experience.

Up your natural nail game with this!

I have used Ella Mila products for years now, and I love it all, but only recently realized how amazing this polish remover truly is. In the past couple of months, I have exclusively used this polish remover and my nails have thanked me immensely. No matter how hard I had tried before, I would still suffer of cracking/chipping on the sides of my nails when they reached a certain length, but no more!
