Honeybee Gardens Nail Enamel Hippie Chick -- 0.5 fl oz
Really Actually Fume Free
I have not been able to wear nail polish for decades due to allergies. I can smell the chemicals in regular nail polish and continue reacting to them even after they "dry". I had purchased another supposedly fume-free nail polish a few years back only to find out it was not actually fume free, just supposedly containing less toxic fumes. After that disappointment, I had given up on nail polish I could wear. So, it was really fabulous to find out that Honeybee gardens polish is really fume-free. There is a very slight odor when it is wet, but not one that is negative or irritating or allergenic. And then it does not smell at all once dry!! I kept the color on my nails for 3 days. It did start to chip a bit after 2 days. But, that was no big deal since it's not like I paid for a manicure. And it was really easy to put on, so no great time expense either. Plus, the idea of being able to wear nail polish without discomfort more than outweighed the fact that I couldn't wear it for a week.
Part of the ease of putting on this polish is that it removes with simple rubbing alcohol. So, for any "mistakes" where I missed the nail, I just dipped a disposable cotton make-up applicator in alcohol and easily corrected.
And after about 3 days, it came off really easily with one cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol.
It is a really cute color, a pink with some purple undertones. But, because it has some slight purple undertones, it does not complement hands so well that show any blue veins. I ordered 2 other colors after trying this one. But, I have not yet used them.

Long lasting nail polish!
I really love this color, and the fact that two coats on my toenails last a long time. Maybe not great for someone who wants to change colors every week -- but, that's not me so I love that I've only had to re-apply it once this summer!

This gets a thumbs up from me for health reasons first of all and I like the way it went on....very smoothly and evenly. Have not tried removal yet, but love the color and it seems to be lasting just fine.

I gave this 2 stars because it peels almost instantly. But I would recommend it because it is non toxic, the colors are very pretty and with proper application it does last for some users.

Coolest color ever!
I am pretty conservative when it comes to nail polish colors but wanted to try something new. I LOVE this color, and it goes on great, too.
