To the individual that suggested we just "try them out" because these polishes are fabulous.....Not an option for a lot of us, as many people have moderate to severe reactions to these caustic ingredients. I have a severe reaction to formaldehyde resin, which is not the same as formaldehyde and is in many polishes that are 3 free, e.g. OPI. Fabulous does not trump good health and common sense.
Thanks for pointing that out. I worry about the chemicals all the time. Even things that are supposedly all natural often have inert ingredients that aren't natural. And not all natural things are good anyway.
I used this polish for a special occasion but try to be careful normally. Unfortunately, polish is probably the least of our worries. I have to wonder about all the electromagnetic rays our bodies are suddenly coming in contact with... It's everywhere.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to make that comment.

I agree with u ladies, I cant believe they have not rid the polish of those terrible chemicals.
I thought it was mandatory for nail polish companies to rid the polish of those chemicals.

Agreed. Every other big brand out there has gone 3-Free, even many drugstore brands. OPI, Essie, Zoya, Butter London, Rescue Beauty Lounge... these are all free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP. Why is Illamasqua holding out? It's really ridiculous these days, and incredibly scary that so many people don't know or care enough to stop buying products that continue to use such toxic ingredients.
