The arrival of cool fall air brings many things we love… fluffy sweaters, hot coffee & ciders, bonfires… and one thing we don’t love. Dried out skin. It is easy to apply lotions and oils to keep our skin soft and moisturized, but one area that is easily neglected is our nails. Show some love to your nails the next time you give yourself a manicure by using quality nail care items.
The first step to keeping your nails healthy is by applying a moisturizing cuticle oil. Whether you paint your nails or not, a quality cuticle oil will keep your nails healthy throughout the dry fall and winter months. We offer 4 different cuticle oils for you to choose from, our favorite being The Soy Cuticle Oil which is offered in 2 formulations. This oil is 96% Bio Based and designed to help strengthen and treat the nails and cuticles. Even those that are already dried out or cracked. The Essential Oils and Vitamins added to the cuticle oil formulas help to promote cell growth.
Standard nail polish removers, both acetone and non-acetone, strip the nail of its natural oils, drying out the nail and cuticle. For this reason, we offer a solution in our Soy Based Nail Polish Remover. This is a natural, healthy solution to the nail color removal process. Not only does it keep the nail moisturized, it also smells great. Our soy based nail polish remover is available with or without Vitamins A, C & E, and a variety of essential oils can be added, allowing full customization.
Now that your nails are healthy, finish off the natural look with a nude shade. We offer 21 nude shades so you can find the perfect shade for your skin tone and that of your customers. To ensure nail health, our polish formula is a high quality, 10-free, Vegan Friendly formulation. Visit our color chart to find the perfect nudes for your private label line as well as ways to customize and brand your own Soy Cuticle Oil and Soy Polish Remover.

Normally, in a season full of neutrals, we have seen a surprising amount of vibrant shades emerging. This is largely due to consumer’s new found awareness of the impact and meaning of color, and willingness to make braver color choices.
Vivid blues and reds are dominating this season with staple shades such as Pantone 19-1536 Red Pear, Pantone 18-1549 Valiant Poppy, and Pantone 18-4048 Nebulas Blue. While blues and reds make a bold staple color, Pantone 18-0625 Martini Olive, and Pantone 15-0850 Ceylon Yellow create a high contrast base color palette of primary colors.
Accenting the main shades, we have Pantone 12-0740 Limelight, Pantone 16-1255 Russet Orange, Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet, Pantone 15-3520 Crocus Petal, and Pantone 18-5025 Quetzal Green, adding an imaginative effervescent glow to the pallet.
To keep the color group grounded, Pantone announced five core colors: Pantone 19-4031 Sargasso Sea, Pantone 11-4801 Tofu, Pantone 14-1116 Almond Buff, Pantone 14-4107 Quiet Gray, and Pantone 16-1438 Meerkat. This new array of colors has enriched the group with a stable, neutral base to the pallet.

Halal Cosmetics Grow in Popularity
In just the past year we have begun to see a growth in the Halal Nail polish market. For years it has been a source of frustration for Muslim women who participate in wudu, a washing ritual that takes place before prayer and requires that water touch every part of the body. As standard polish is not water-permeable, Muslim women either have to remove the polish between prayers or, more often, not wear it at all. The female Muslim community has finally said “enough” and the demand for Halal Nail Polish continues to grow.
There are many different formulations of water permeable, breathable nail polish on the market. Some may allow more liquid to pass through the polish film, than another, but as long as the water can permeate the nail polish, they are both considered to be water permeable. While all of our halal polish comes from a halal certified facility, only certain formulations are specifically formulated to be water permeable. Currently, we offer 14 shades of Halal Breathable Polish along with a Halal Certified Topcoat. (View here under the “Type” filter). Six new shades are currently in production for Fall 2018, and we welcome suggestions for new colors as well.
