*** pics are my mine, do not copy, steal or duplicate in any manner ***
Left to Right:Mazarine, Garnet Red, Neon Yellow, New Gold Pearl & Sierra
#50 Mazarine: This is a beautiful color. It is a deep blue toned teal. YES, I know the pic looks teal, but it is actually slightly deeper in person.
#136 Garnet Red: The photo is pretty much spot on, this is a brown toned red, not my fave color, but still nice.
#82 Neon Yellow: I`m always on the hunt for a great yellow, I have tons but for some reason am in LOVE with the color! LOl This yellow is nice, but it almost has a brown undertone that makes it appear slightly mustardy in person. The flash on the camera plays a part with the polish looking vibrantly yellow, do NOT be fooled, while this is nice, it is NOT a bright clear yellow!
#79 New Gold Pearl: Now this is my least favorite of the bunch! Its confused, its not really a color, its transparent, but ha some glitter and a golden hue to it. UGH... I just don`t know! I have no purpose for this polish I really do not care for it!
#49 Sierra: This is one of my faves as well. Such a wonderful color, it is a nice red based coral. its just a great color, LOVE it for spring/summer!

HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION
* Routes of Exposure
Exposure to dibutyl phthalate can occur through inhalation, ingestion, and eye or skin contact [Sittig 1991].
* Summary of toxicology
Effects on Animals: DBP is a mild eye and upper respiratory tract irritant in experimental animals. The acute oral LD(50) for dibutyl phthalate (DBP) in rats is between 8 and 10 g/kg. A 2-hour exposure of mice to an aerosol of DBP at 250 mg/m(3) resulted in eye and upper respiratory tract irritation. Higher levels of exposure caused labored breathing, ataxia, weakness, convulsions and death from respiratory paralysis. The LC(50) in mice was 25,000 mg/m(3) for an undefined exposure duration. Rats exposed to concentrations as low as 0.5 mg/m(3) of DBP mist for 6 hours/day for 6 months had smaller weight gains; and greater brain and lung weights than controls. In a 1.5 year gavage study, rats receiving a solution of DBP in oil at 1 ml/kg of body weight had no adverse changes in hematology, pathology of organ tissues, and organ weights. Several chronic carcinogenicity studies have demonstrated that DBP is not an animal carcinogen. Reduced testes weights and cellular injury were seen in mice and guinea pigs fed 2 g/kg/day for 10 days. In a study of pregnant female rats administered doses of DBP at 1/10, 1/5, and 1/3 the acute LD(50), significant dose-related fetal deaths and abnormalities occurred [Hathaway et al. 1991]. A 2-hour exposure of mice to 250 mg/m(3) of DBP aerosol induced eye irritation; however, undiluted DBP instilled in rabbit eyes caused no observable irritation [Hathaway et al. 1991]. Rats fed lethal doses of DBP exhibited edema of the eyelids and conjunctivitis [Grant 1986].
Effects on Humans: The acute toxicity of dibutyl phthalate is low. A worker who reportedly swallowed 10 grams of DBP became nauseated, dizzy, and developed photophobia, tearing, conjunctivitis, keratitis with loss of corneal epithelium, and signs of transitory toxic nephritis as evidenced by red and white blood cells and oxalate crystals in the urine. He recovered promptly and completely. There is, however, some doubt as to whether DBP was the substance ingested [Hathaway et al. 1991; Grant 1986]. Fifty-three volunteers dermally tested with 5 percent DBP solution (48 hour closed patch test) showed no reactions. Responses to cosmetic formulations containing up to 9 percent DBP ranged from nonirritating to slightly irritating in various patch test procedures. Sensitization and photosensitization did not occur [Hathaway et al. 1991]. In a study of 147 Russian workers exposed to several phthalate plasticizers in the artificial leather industry, significant adverse health effects were reported. The duration of employment was from 0.5 to 19 years, and the ambient air concentrations for the mixed phthalate esters varied from 1.7 to 66 mg/m(3). Beginning in the 6th to 7th year of work, pain, numbness, and spasms of the arms and legs were reported. This was followed by weakness of the extremities. Extensive neurological studies showed a 32 percent rate of polyneuritis among workers in the group studies [ACGIH 1991]. Women workers exposed to phthalates have been reported to have more menstrual disorders, miscarriages, reduced gestation and delivery rates than controls. Contact of the surface of the eye with DBP causes pain and tearing, but no permanent eye damage [Grant 1986].
* Signs and symptoms of exposure
Acute exposure: Splashing liquid DBP in the eyes causes immediate severe pain and profuse tearing. Exposure to dibutyl phthalate mist can cause nose and upper respiratory tract irritation. Reported effects after ingestion are nausea, dizziness, sensitivity to light, redness of the eyes, and transient kidney inflammation [Sittig 1991; Hathaway et al. 1991; Grant 1986].
Chronic exposure: Symptoms of chronic exposure to mixtures of dibutyl phthalate and other esters include pain, numbness, and spasms in the upper and lower extremities, followed by weakness of the upper and lower extremities. Polyneuritis may also occur [ACGIH 1991].
I know alot of people freak out about DPB in nail polish, but honestly I do NOT use it enough to be concerned! I do not digest nail polish nor do I constantly sniff it, I believe the risks to be minor, in MY OWN opinion.
- variety of colors (150+ to choose from)
- 18ml, woot woot, that 3 ml`s more than standard nail polish
- fast drying ( 5-10 mins)
- contains dibutyl phthalate
- can NOT find cruelty free info (hmmmm....)
have you tried out this brand of nail polish? What do you think of it? Are you concerned with the big 3 exposure???,
