WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT ZAHARA’S OXYGEN NAIL POLISH?

Zahara breathable nail polish utilizes a special formula that allows oxygen and water vapour to pass through the surface of the polish and reach your beautiful nails. Why is this important?

  • WATER PERMEABLE: Cleanses the surface of your nails. Suitable for all ages, ethnicities and religions.
  • 7 FREE: Free of the common harmful chemicals that are found in nail polishes (No Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate - DBP, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Triphenyl Phosphate - TPHP, and Xylene)
  • HIGH PERFORMANCE: Thinner than regular nail polish but still highly pigmented with a beautiful glossy finish.
  • EASY TO REMOVE: Quick removal with any nail polish remover
  • VEGAN: free of animal by-products
  • CRUELTY-FREE: Long-live the bunnies! No animals were harmed

 

HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT THE NAIL POLISH IS WATER PERMEABLE?

We have sent our nail polish to a 3rd party lab to test the water-permeability of our nail polishes, you can view the lab reporthere.

Here is a summary of the test conducted:

Nail polish is painted onto filter paper and a hygrometer (an instrument that measures water content in the atmosphere) is placed below the paper. Water is then rubbed onto the surface of the polish while the water level is measured on the other side of the filter with the hygrometer.

The results: for both the 1 coat and the 2 coat experiments water level in the atmosphere increased to 95%, proving water permeability.

TIPS FOR EFFECTIVE WATER PERMEABILITY:

  • Don’t use more than 2 coats of nail polish
  • Rub your nails thoroughly
  • The longer you wash your hands the more water can pass through, we recommend 30 seconds in total.

 

HOW DO I REMOVE THE NAIL POLISH?

You need nail polish remover to remove the varnish. To maintain healthy nails, we recommend using an Alcohol and Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover.


HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Our nail polish lasts about 5 days before chipping, but it depends on the individual and how active you are with your hands!
