This nail enamel is odorless!

"I've looked a long while for a natural nail polish without formaldehyde and toulene, which are found in most. Honeybee Gardens Nail Enamel is superb. There is no odor, it is water based, and lasts longer than any polish I've used. I'm thrilled at all the color choices, too. No more having to sit outside to paint or remove nail polish because of strong odors. Thank you, Vitacost for carrying this and many other useful products."

Water-based nail polish
 February 3, 2012
"I have tried Aquarella, Suncoat, and Honeybee Gardens water-based nail enamels and I find them all superior to acetone/acetate based nail varnishes. I'm spoiled for regular toxic-fume polish ever again.
Honeybee Gardens nail enamel is the best, IMO, because it's the most affordable (and Vitacost makes it even more so). Water-based nail enamel does take longer to dry. I give my nails about 5 minutes to dry and then at least 15 minutes before handling anything wet. I don't take a shower or immerse my hands for several hours. In fact, I usually apply just before bed and give it a solid 8 hours to dry completely. It wears about as well as regular polishes after it's had a full night to set. It's much easier to touch up scratches or chips because it doesn't leave an evaporation line around the patch. It gets harder to remove the longer it stays on. By the end of a week, it takes some serious scrubbing with rubbing alcohol to get it off.
Cons: cost, long-drying time, relatively fragile initially, relatively hard to remove after a few days.
Pros: no noxious fumes!, easy touch-ups, old bottles that are starting to dry out and get too thick can be refreshed with a drop of distilled H2O.

"This nail polish chipped within the first half hour of having it on and then when I washed my hands about half of it came off. Don't waste your money."
