Water colors™. Water-based. Unique water-based polish is totally odor-free. No more nasty fumes. But perhaps best of all there's also no need for toxic smelly nail polish remover - this product removes with rubbing alcohol vodka/grain alcohol or our new odorless polish remover. Thanks to our new patented technology there's nothing else like it on the market.  Odorless non-toxic earth-friendly formula long wearing fabulous colors contains no:fd&c colors toluene dibutyl phthalate xylene or formaldehyde. Comes in 16 great colors to match our truly natural lipsticks: shiny penny camelot romance risque desire vintage merlot san francisco hippie chick valentine mocha latte goddess tuscany cherokee moulin rouge fairy dust and clear.

Do not buy this!
 June 8, 2014
"This is a waste of money. I wish I'd read the product reviews before purchasing. It started to bubble within hours and I couldn't find anything to get it off (although I didn't try turpentine). I had to scrape it off over a week!"

Tried twice, failed to stay on twice
 January 24, 2014
"Applied 2 coats of base, as instructed, then polish over. Less than 24 hours later, 60% of both polish and base were gone.
I threw both away.
Too bad, as I had high hopes this would represent a safer nail polish."

"Love that this has no smell. However, the polish doesn't last. Oddly the polish peals off the first day. I wish I could return it but the cost to return it is more than the money I would get back."

Very disappointing...
 January 18, 2013
"Pros: natural ingredients, no harsh smell
Cons: doesn't stay on more than a half day, bubbles when put on.
For sure, I would not buy again."

"I purchased this brand of nail polish, a couple of months ago and I am pleased with the smooth application, quick drying and longevity of product.
Furthermore, I am looking forward to buying Honeybee Garden's Nail Polish Remover when Vitacost has it back in stock.

Great for base layer
 May 20, 2011
"This clear base nail polish is meant to be put under a darker colored water based nail polish to enable easier removal. It works great as such; I never put on the colored upper coat without it, because it would be so much harder to remove the outer layer."

Aw, too disappointing.
 January 2, 2011
"I'm sad to say these nail polishes don't cut it. I really wanted to get a healthier polish. I have tried this several times (following the directions for achieving the longest lasting results) but it just doesn't last. It starts wearing off after a day, starting at the nail tips. It just doesn't stay on."
