From a non-toxic nail varnish brand that peels off after a little soak in warm water to one that you can peel off straight away, these nail varnishes make home manicures more heavenly. Think about it: no more stinky nail varnish removers that use drying acetone, cotton wool, etc. Just pick your fave shade, glide it on and wait for it to dry. And when you fancy a change, peel it off to be simply and beautifully bare.

Suncoat Polish and Peel Nail Varnish, £5.99 each, 8ml, that Peels Off with Water
With shades like deep Pink Dahlia to purple-brown Mulberry, Suncoat’s peel-off, non-toxic nail varnish spoils your tips with shade choice and leaves nails in long-lasting, pigment-packed mineral colour. Because it uses mineral pigments, your nails are lovingly liberated from yellowish discolouration, the need for base coats, etc. and the chemicals they harbour. What’s more, you can skip the cotton wool and icky-smelling nail varnish remover by simply soaking your nails in warm water for a few minutes so you can easily peel the varnish off from one corner.
How to apply: paint two coats for two days of wear.
This peel-away, non-toxic nail varnish is marvellously made without: formaldehyde, phthalates, toluene, acetates, synthetic dyes, alcohol and other harmful chemicals.
