So what is plant based nail polish? New technology allows polish bases to replace petrochemical ingredients with plant-based ingredients. 83% of ingredients (solvents, plasticizers, and film formers) are from plant sources such as sugar cane, manioc, potato, and corn. Therefore Picture Polish is transitioning to this earth friendly recipe which uses renewable resources for key ingredients. Also contains hexanal, a natural aldehyde to improve nail condition. And a perfect two coat colour coverage with exceptional wear and gloss.
