Are you common with that feeling when you leave a nail salon with a regret and bitter thought of “I can do my nails better at home”? Well, I’ve already stopped counting these bad luck situations. I enjoy my nails to be pampered and treated the way they deserve (and the way I am actually paying money for). Back in Tel Aviv I had a few favorite nail salons, but surprisingly for me, I couldn’t find a decent nails place in Los Angeles so far (p.s. : any recommendations are welcome in the comments!) That is why this post, that I’ve been working so hard on, is extremely important – it is fully dedicated to healthy nail care developed by Aila Cosmetics!
Meet AILA Cosmetics, physician developed non-toxic nail care brand that is actually healthy and full of love and care for your nails. Yup, you’ve heard me, no more harmful chemicals in your nail care routine.
Let’s be honest, most of us don’t really think that deep when we choose just another nail polish to add a signature drop of color to a well polished look. But we should. AILA cosmetics has developed a nail polish formula that is good for you : vegan, based on natural ingredients, free of parabens, glutens and other nasty chemicals that all the traditional (soon we’re going to call them old-fashioned) nail colors tend to be packed with. The 5-free system that AILA is proudly sticking to guarantees NO formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, dibutyl phthalate and camphor in their products (you can educate yourself about the bad behavior of these chemicals on Aila’s information page). Where I am going to? I don’t need to stress about my nails any longer, because lovely ladies behind the AILA cosmetics introduced me to everything I need to keep my nails pretty, healthy and “up to date” without living my place. More than that, we teamed up to make one lucky girl’s life much more pleasant with a generous nail care kit from AILA (yes yes, giveaway, keep on reading!)
What AILA has to offer for your healthy nail care regimen? Pretty much everything!
Nail colors indeed! Aila offers a really nice selection of colors in it’s nail polish line and my neutral colors loving soul feels satisfied! As promised, all the nail polishes are shiny and long lasting (not a chip for 5 days – and I don’t have a dishwasher at my place!). I especially love their very accurate brush – not too big, not too small – just the right size to manage the desirable perfection of color coverage! These are my favorite colors (that could be yours, just keep on reading!) from left to write : Ms.Martin (perfect shade of pink nude), Pffff Ugggh (warm grey latte) and Mister Pookies (steel grey with purple undertone). My personal bonus goes to the funky named color bottles – you know how much I love to talk about color names!
All the special treatment you need to make the result last for long:
AILA Cosmetics Better than gel topcoat (on the left) is the gel manicure alternative I’ve been looking for! Yes, I want the nail color I’ve just carefully put on my nails to last long, but it hasn’t to be harmful for my nails! (you are aware of the consequences of gel manicure, aren’t you?!). Better than gel topcoat covers the nail like a gel and adds a thick protective layer that will act as a nail guard to keep the color shiny and complete for longer period without using UV lamp light. Non toxic just as all AILA nail care products – both healthy and functional (dreamy,right?). By functional I especially want to mark – it doesn’t take an eternity to wait when your nails are dry! It also will smooth the imperfections of color layer you’ve done by accident with the help of it’s thick texture. True helper.
Plus, one should not ever forget about the importance of a base coat. It might take plus one more minute of your precious time, but your nails are totally going to benefit from this quick procedure. AILA Cosmetics Prime base coat (on the right) is full with healthy vitamins and ingredients : high level of Zinc, Calcium and Selenium work on strengthening the nail direction while Allicin and Sulphur provide anti-fungunal and anti-bacterial protection. Spiced up with garlic (that has been known for it’s beneficial properties for nails for decades), Prime base will take a good care of your nails and also will prevent them from yellowing.
AILA Cosmetics Coconut Nail & Cuticle therapy …ohh, I need to take a new breath here. We all have those harsh factors that affect the soft and sensitive skin around the nail and cuticle itself. It needs a special care, especially during the winter period! Or, during the no dishwasher lifetime period. Based on 100% organic coconut oil, the Nail & Cuticle therapy product hydrates, strengthens and protects the nails and cuticle with it’s anti-bacterial and anti-fungunal properties. The coconut scent is definitely adding some tropical charm to my finger tips, and I have no written words longer than omg to describe how much I love the crisp texture of slightly melting coconut oil (and the sound!). However, I would suggest to keep it in the cool place.
I guess even more harm (only from the smell itself) usually comes from not the nail polishes, but from the nail polish remover. Ha, not anymore! AILA Cosmetics has a healthy alternative to acetone nail color removers too – 3-in-1 Soy-based nail color remover with pure argan oil. 100% natural and plant based remover guarantees effective and safe work in removing the color plus all the protective and healthy bonuses that come from unique blend of Vitamins A, C, E and Argan oil – anti-fungunal, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories.
