Today’s post is on my favorite beauty picks for 2012 for nail beauty!

I received these some time last Summer from Karma Organic Spa and I’ve been loving them ever since! While these 2 colors aren’t necessarily winter theme colors, they still look great and the clear base and top coat and soy polish remover have been great on both non-toxic type nail lacquers and the regular kind!

The polishes last a really long time when used with the base/top clear coat and they look really vibrant! I also love their awesome soy polish remover that I received in a lavender scent because it doesn’t have the typical toxic scent of acetone based polish removers – it just smells like calming lavender. Also, it’s non-drying to nails and includes soybean oil in the formula to help hydrate nails and keep them healthy.

2 Awesome Summer 3 Free Nail Colors and Natural Lavender Polish Remover from Karma Organic Spa!

If you’ve never heard of the Karma Organic Spa and you’re in the New Jersey area, you should really check them out.

As one of the first organic spas in the area, they carry loads of awesome products including these 3 free nail polishes and natural nail polish remover that I’ve been testing out for the past week and a half!

This nail polish is truly awesome!

It is long lasting, nearly as long as normal polish if not as long, it is formulated without the 3 heinous ingredients in normal polish that cause them to be so toxic to use, and the award winning nail polish remover is my favorite of the bunch!

 Karma Organic Spa Karma Hues Nail Polish formulated 3 free – without Toluene, Formaldehyde, or DBP and Natural Nail Polish Remover with Soybean Oil and Lavender.

Karma Hues in “Summer Day “

I have applied this in a horribly amateur way because, frankly, applying polish is just something I’ve never been good at, but even so, I feel the polish stayed on throughout the week with little to no chipping and the clear coat worked well as a base and top coat.

Plus, “Summer Day” is such a nice color of blue; perfect for the summertime!

Natural Nail Polish Remover with Soybean Oil and Lavender

This nail polish remover is by far my favorite product!

I do love the nail polish colors that I received, which are certainly perfect for a beachy summer, but this polish remover is really something special. I can certainly see why it’s won awards in the past!

Formulated with soybean oil, vitamin E and lavender, it has none of that suffocating chemical scent of usual polish remover, but instead smells completely of lavender.

Also, it’s not drying like a lot of nail products can be to your hands and nails, instead it just feels balanced and smells super calming!

Karma Hues in “Tropicana Nights”

As awful as I am at applying polish, I still love to wear it and these summer colors are so vibrant and summery that I want to wear polish all the time now!

Even “Tropicana Nights,” which I initially felt would be too orange is really just so bright and fun that I love wearing it!

All in all, the nail polish colors and remover are completely awesome!

These colors are perfect for the summertime and a healthier, yet just as effective version as their drugstore counterparts without a heft price tag.

The remover will only cost you $12 and you can get it in Lavender, Tea Tree or Unscented whereas the polishes all cost $9.99 each and include a wide variety of fun tints, especially if you’re a fan of pinks, reds, purples or blues!

When compared to the price of conventional polishes and remover, it’s not a bad deal AT ALL!

I would definitely recommend this nail polish because it reminds me of Butter London 3 Free Polish, but it is slightly more affordable to purchase and the nail polish remover is just fantastic and therapeutic to use! I can’t rave about it enough!
