In a perfect world, the cleanest and most natural beauty products would also be the most effective. What a dream, eh!? Over the years more and more brands have launched better and better natural, nontoxic beauty alternatives that are not only healthier for us (and often the planet) but work just as well or even better than their non-natural counterparts. One beauty category, however, that's consistently let me down is the nail polish space. In fact, the large majority of ultra-clean lines I've tried have been mystifyingly bad—chips mere hours post-paint, dull and cloudy finishes, watery, streak-inducing consistencies… aka everything I don't want in a nail polish. Consider Tenoverten the one (among very few) exception.
If I had tested Tenoverten's vegan, cruelty-free, and non-toxic polishes blind, I would never have guessed they were made from a non-toxic formula—they just look and apply that well. Every single one of the brand's 40 polishes is eight-free, meaning they do not contain toluene, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, triphenyl phosphate, ethyltosylamide, or xylene. They also paint on smoothly and leave nary a streak. Plus, the colors are completely next-level; tread carefully, you'll want to collect every last one. That said, to celebrate our love for the brand we reached out to Tenoverten HQ to see which of said 40 shades fly off the shelves at record-level speed as all-time best-sellers. Curious?
