Whether you're looking for the elegance and glamour of the French manicure, a classic look or this seasons trend-setting colours; Zao nail polishes will meet all your desires.

Without any toxic ingredients and enriched in silica from bamboo oil, you can use them without limitation.

Zao nail polishes are now 10 free, with the exception of references 663-665, which are due for reformulation shortly. The new formula contains 76-80% of ingredients from natural origin by the replacement of petrochemical solvents with agro-solvents from potatoes, manioc, corn and wheat.

The composition is free of  the10 harmful ingredients normally found in commercial nail polishes: toluene*, formaldehyde*, dibutyl phthalate*, formaldehyde resin, paraben, xylene*, camphor, rosin*, styrene and benzophenone. Therefore, with the new 10 free formula, we have now removed 2 new harmful ingredients: styrene and benzophenone.

Unlike other natural, water-based nail polishes  that chip and flake very easily Zao has devised a nail polish that enjoys the quality of traditional nail polishes but without the toxic chemicals, resulting in an effective and long-lasting nail polish that does not compromise your health. 

How to Apply: Apply one or two coats of nail polish, depending on the desired effect. Use 636 Top & Base Coat to extend the life of your nail polish and to create a glossy finish. .
