A couple of months ago (yes, months), we received the most wonderful present from a very thoughtful reader, Cheryl Sy. I don’t know her personally but she sent me a private message, either in Facebook or Instagram, I can’t remember now. She asked if she could send my daughters some non-toxic nail polish. I politely declined because my girls are, like me, not into nail polish. So we left it at that.

Cheryl didn’t stop there. She ordered a gift from her crafting friend in Oregon, and promised to send these personalized goodies to my kids. Weeks and probably months later, she contacted me saying the package went to Tel Aviv by mistake and that she was working on getting them to Manila. Cute.

Anyway the package finally got to us. It really brightened up my day. It was the most well-thought of presents. Cheryl also wrote lovely notes for me and my daughters. I just can’t tell you enough how we appreciate this gesture, Cheryl. Thank you!! Stella drew a thank you note. And the girls also recorded a thank you video. I have yet to send them to Cheryl. In the meantime, here is her amazing product…

The three bottles carry the names of my daughters — Rose, Daisy, Lily. (Margarita means daisy.)

Personalized charm bracelets for each girl, with miniature Snails bottles and their flowers! Look at them… so adorable, the lily, the rose, and the daisy.

Each of the bracelets has a little “Strawbunny” charm. Not many know that my daughters have a Facebook page called The Strawbunny where they show some of their art work and creations. The Strawbunny character was designed by Lily.

Snails is a non-toxic and completely water-soluble nail polish meant for children… but also good for adults. According to Cheryl she found this brand while searching for non-toxic nail polish for her own daughter. She would use toxic-free polish but would end up using nail polish remover with harsh chemicals. It also took forever to remove and sometimes damaged her daughter’s nails. With Snails (safe nails), the polish comes off with just water and soap! Perfect for little digits playing fancy dress-up. If you want the colour to last longer, you can use the Snails Top Coat and your polish can stay on for up to two days. It then can be removed by water!

Just above the barcode, the Lily. You will also see that the formula is free of harmful chemicals like Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, and Parabens.

Stella agreed to have her cute little nails coloured with polish. I promised her that it would come off easily.

I tried it myself. Two coats of pink. I didn’t seal it with the top coat because I wanted to check if it was really water soluble.

And so I tried washing it off.

Just a little soap and some gentle rubbing, the colour came off.

And there you have it… washable nail polish!
