According to a report released on Tuesday by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control there are several brands of polish that claim to be non-toxic when in fact they have the chemicals toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde in them. Better known as the "toxic trio," these toxins have been linked to birth defects and other serious health conditions.
Combining environmentally-safe practices with luxurious amenities, BE Polished is a brand new eco-luxe nail lounge and lash bar in Coronado featuring award-winning, vegan friendly, long wearing ZOYA nail polish treatments that are completely free of formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate and camphor.
They also offer Minx Nail Fashions, that are an eco-chic alternative to polish. Minx is a flexible polymer sticker that is applied to your natural nail and heated with a special lamp that forms a shrink wrap effect on the nail. BE Polished boasts Tiffany blue walls, cozy vintage furniture, and glamorous décor. Ideal for the woman seeking an upscale refuge for on-trend, healthy beauty services.
The nail lounge menu offers a range of services from modest upkeep to posh pampering, starting with the Quickie Mani/Pedi, and upgrading to the Savvy Mani/Pedi and the deluxe Queen BE Mani/Pedi. Play with the industry’s leading trends and try the long-lasting Gelish or polish-free Minx nail fashion. Treatments range in price from $15 to $60, and come with heated neck pillows and a glass of champagne. Open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 to 6. Call (619) 437-1440 or visit www.bepolishedstudio.com
