Best brand of nontoxic polish, not my fave color
 August 8, 2013
"I love HBG polish.
-It's nontoxic even for ultra-sensitive me - no weird odor, no reactions, it doesn't feel like I'm wearing a chunk of deadening stuff on my fingernails (I usually want to wash away other brands of polish after a few hours cause I don't like feeling like my nails are covered in vinyl).
-It's awesome polish -- goes on smoothly almost as well as OPI or other salon polishes, blends together to hide the fact that I'm an unskilled nail polisher, so it looks good.
-It lasts well, esp with a topcoat. I've never found another nontoxic brand that doesn't just peel right off in a couple hours. This lasts for a week on my fingernails (with a topcoat, for days without) and weeks and weeks on my feet.
-It comes off okay with rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. I may try their polish remover to see if it works better. But my experience is that nontoxic polish is a little harder to get off, so I don't mind.
However -- I didn't love this shade. It's basically fingernail color only a little whitish/yellowish-er, and shiny. It didn't look attractive with my warm skintone. Would look good on someone else maybe but not to my taste. I thought it would be pinker.
Also this shade was a little trickier to put on. The blue and the purple (Tease, I think) had a different texture and really went on smooth.

At last!
 May 25, 2013
"A non-toxic nail color that goes on easily, lasts and lasts, and comes off with rubbing alcohol? All true! Even on my toenails-- no chipping or fading for 2 weeks, and it really did come off with rubbing alcohol.
The easiest removal method is to saturate a cotton ball with alcohol, put it on the nail and let it soak in for a minute or two, then rub. No problems!
Also, this San Fransisco is a very feminine peachy apricot color-- demure, suitable for all ages, appropriate for a professional look.
Very highly recommended!"

Golden shining color, not easy to apply.
 November 29, 2012
"It has the same con that most shining nail polish normally has, that is it can not be brushed smoothly. And the color is too warm and shining for daily using."

Didn't last even one single day

"It's too soft to last even one single day on my nails.
Pros: no annoying chemical smell
Cons: not durable and not easy to apply.

Color is not what you see
 October 25, 2012
"Just terrible, went straight in the bin, the color you see on line is not what you get, and on application is bubbles and looks terrible. Would not buy again, wasted my money."

Nice neutral color
 October 7, 2012
"Very pretty color but doesn't last very long on fingernails. I now only use it for toes and it lasts really long, especially since it's such a subtle hue. The natural ingredients and lack of strong smell will keep me purchasing this product!"

Excellent product
 September 12, 2012
"I love that I can use this non toxic nail polish. It does take a lot of rubbing with the remover or plain alcohol to remove it, especially if you leave it on a few weeks. But that is a small thing compared to the safetry of this product."

Great polish!
 March 18, 2012
"I was AMAZED that there was NO harsh smell whatsoever with this polish! I can breath easy when using it, and even using it on my little girls :-) Also, I love this color!! A light peach, but it is quite reflective= lots of shimmer :-) A new favorite for sure!"
