Happy Skincare Saturday!

Don’t miss your chance to win some amazing goodies at the end of this post!

When an awesome company comes along that uses sound ingredients and ethical practices, we love sharing their work with you. We’re thrilled to announce this month’s favorite: Acquarella Nail Polish!

Now that summer is (almost!) here, it’s time to start thinking about your nails. The root cause of many nail problems is nutrient deficiency. This can mean that zinc (and other minerals!) that are vital to healthy hair, skin, and nails are not being digested properly, which can lead to nail conditions such as brittle or discolored nails, and even ridges and pits in the nails.

The nails are a reflection of not just nutrient status, but the quality of the products we put on them. Conventional nail polish is highly toxic and stifling to the nails. A common toxin found in conventional nail polish is formaldehyde – eeeek!

(For more information on nail problems, their causes, and what can help – refer to the Purely Primal Skincare Guide)

So what’s a girl to do? There are some Skintervention-approved options for all you nail polish lovers!

Several brands offer options with absolutely NO harsh chemicals that can be damaging to the nails.

Enter Acquarella Nail Polish!


Acquarella was founded by a team of health and beauty experts in Tuscon, Arizona. They developed a high quality, water-based nail polish, made with only safe components and ingredients. Acquarella is a water-based polish that hydrates the nail, instead of stripping the nail as can happen with many conventional polishes laden with unnecessary and damaging industrial chemicals.

None of their products are tested on animals, nor do they contain any animal products or by-products.

They currently have 49+ color polishes available! (Look at those fun summer colors!)


Note: Water-based nail polish may have slightly different application techniques, so be sure to read the instructions.

Here’s your chance to win!

We’re giving away  2 prize packs! Each prize pack includes the following goodies: Acquarella Conditioner, Travel Remover, Buffer Kit, and 2 polishes (your pick your colors).

Each prize pack is valued at $54.
