What’s in and what’s not? Wouldn’t you like to know. Del Sol can shed some light on that. First off, fitting in your nail polish fix, making it match your personality, and trying out recent polish trends can be next to impossible.

No stress – when it comes to nail painting, it’s mostly about having fun and being yourself anyway. And, hopefully some of the following nail polish commentary will make your nail polish fun even funner.

Blasting back to our NASA roots with out-of-this-world nail polish.

In homage to Del Sol’s proprietary Spectrachrome® technology roots, based on a special color-change formula originally explored by NASA, Del Sol recently introduced an exclusive ‘Out of this World’ nail polish collection that adds intergalactic flare to your adventures under the sun.

Each new polish changes color with the slightest touch of sunlight and then returns to its original color without sunlight. 

Here are some additional nail polish trends and inspiration to look out for this year and beyond:  

Polish Colors that Match the Mood

When you wake up with overcast-cloud mood, you may want a nail polish that reflects that mood.

Plenty of nail art or nail polish trends right now are ideal for capturing your innermost feelings. 

Del Sol’s Sky’s the Limit nail polish changes from light blue, without sunlight, to sapphire with sunlight.

Del Sol nail polish is perfect for when you can’t make up your mind about which color to wear. This polish gives you two options in one. 

Neutral shades, especially for fall and winter, are great for match those earthy or icy tones. 

Colors that Inspire

We’re talking about adding some creative accents, colors and flourishes to your nails. Be a nail artiste when it works for you. Let your imagination run wild.

Del Sol lets you think three dimensionally, as it’s one color indoors, another color outdoors, making you think about your outfit indoors and outdoors – three dimensions of thought.

According to Harper’s Bazaar, nail art for fall 2019 is all about the intersection of subtlety and excess. Think pearls glued to sheer nude nails, metallic stripes swiped across a matte base, and logo nails that are less in-your-face. 

Runway, fashion-show nails have recently been painted a glittery lilac shade, then a single pearl was glued at the center of the cuticle.

Also, nude polish but then topped with a surprising hit of metallic silver.

Promote Your Personality

You are uniquely you. And, being you in all ways, shapes and forms is so refreshing.

Always look at ways to decrease any unnecessary stresses from your daily beauty routine. If something in your routine is just not you or is stressing you out, cut it. For many, simplifying the routine is better. For others, taking the time to pamper oneself for longer periods of time is just the way to get started and focused for the day. Do what works for you with the right colors, styles and accents.

Again, Del Sol nail polish can help here. When you know what your day consists of, whether it’s an lunch outing in the park, followed by a board meeting in the office, you may want your polish to brighten your mood outside, while showcasing a more professional color inside. 

Healthy Polishes for Healthy Nails

Nearly all nail polishes available today are considered three-free, meaning they don’t contain the undoubtedly toxic formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP).

Having healthier nails from today onward will ensure that you can enjoy painting your nails all the days of your life without compromising the color or quality of your natural unpainted nails. 

Del Sol nail polish is now becoming a seven-free polish and will continue working toward becoming ten-free.

Here are the differences:

FIVE-FREE: What it doesn’t contain: formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor.

Why that matters: Formaldehyde resin has not been proven to be carcinogenic like formaldehyde itself, but studies have proven that it’s allergenic. Synthetic camphor is toxic with prolonged and excessive exposure, which puts nail technicians at a higher risk of developing a reaction.

SEVEN-FREE: What it doesn’t contain: formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, and xylene.

Why that matters: Ethyl tosylamide is a plasticizer that has been banned from beauty products by the European Commission due to its antibiotic properties and potential contribution to antibiotic resistance (it’s still allowed in the United States). Xylene is a petroleum-based solvent found in paint thinner and nail polish that can cause symptoms like headaches and dizziness with short-term exposure.

NINE-FREE: What it doesn’t contain: formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene, parabens, and acetone.

Why that matters: Do we really need to go over parabens again? As for acetone, it’s almost never found in nail polish but rather nail polish remover. It’s a common skin, eye, and lung irritant, and has been shown to have both neuro- and respiratory toxicity in animal studies at moderate doses.

We hope these thoughts and details about recent nail trends will make you and your nails healthier and happier for more memories under the sun!
