Now that it is getting close to summer, I was excited to start trying to paint my daughter’s toenails. She has been much too fidgety in the past to try it, so I figured at almost 4, she could probably handle it this year. Then I was approached by NailPolishCanada.com to review Suncoat Girl nail polish – perfect timing!
“SuncoatGirl water-based nail polishes are uniquely formulated by our chemists without using any of the following chemicals: Phthalate plasticizers, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Acetates, Alcohol, Glycol ethers, FD&C dyes. Only water, acrylic copolymers and polyurethane (plastic), mineral-based pigments, plastic glitter* and carmine are in these nail polishes. Virtually odor-free. Releases water vapor when applied, not toxic chemical fumes. These water-based children’s nail polishes are truly the most natural nail polishes in the marketplace.
*: Spectra glitter, inert plastic glitters. Conforms to ASTM D4236.
All SuncoatGirl products are created and manufactured in Canada by Suncoat Products Inc.
For children 3 years and older. Use under adult supervision. Also great for anyone to use especially when traveling, and for special occasions. Can last a couple of days on fingernails. Will last longer on toenails.
Apply 2 to 3 thin coats to clean grease-free nails. Dry fully between coats. Peel off the nail polish before changing color by soaking nails in warm water, and peel off from one corner.”
So how did it stand up to the test? I applied 2-3 coats of polish on my daughter’s tiny toenails, as well as my own. It goes on smooth and easy. Other than not smelling any nasty chemicals, I didn’t notice that it went on any differently than mainstream nail polish. It did need to time to dry between coats, as all nail polish does, so that led to some smudging when my daughter couldn’t keep her feet still. The polish that smudged onto the rest of her toes was really easy to remove after it dried by rubbing and peeling it off. I also got nail polish on my leather couch when my daughter insisted on standing up – and that came off very easily – no permanent nail polish stains, and no need for stinky nail polish remover!
My nail polish has stayed on nicely for the past week and a half. Some of my daughter’s started to peel off at the 1 week mark – and it was so easy to peel off once it started peeling a bit at the edge. I didn’t need to soak in warm water, it just came off cleanly! We took off the ones that had started to peel and repainted those toenails. My daughter was thrilled to be able to have her toenails painted, and she loves the 4 colours we got (we had to use all 4 at once, of course!). She has asked to have her fingernails painted too, which we will attempt when I find something that she can sit still for!
So – overall, I would give Suncoat Girl a 5/5 rating. Easy to use, easy to remove, non-toxic, and beautiful colours for kids and adults alike.
Colours we got were: Mermaid Blue, Ballerina Beauty, Majestic Purple, and Starlight Silver.
