Mineral Fusion Nail Polish Review

Since 2012, I’ve been creating digital wellness guides and researching natural beauty products, HIIT workouts, functional exercises, body positivity, self love, and tips helping you explore wellness and feel good.

Welcome to this post: Mineral Fusion Nail Polish Review.

A recent venture of mine has been finding a nail polish that is an improvement on the typical nail polish found in pharmacies and big box grocery stores. At Whole Foods I found a line of nail polish made by a company called Mineral Fusion.

To start, I bought one bottle in a color that I call charcoal gray (pictured above). Here is how Mineral Fusion describes this nail polish:

“Long lasting, chip-resistant formula. Formaldehyde, toluene, camphor and dibutyl phthalate free. Custom, extra thick brush for flawless application.”

To be quite frank, that brief description sounds decent, but I was not impressed with the ingredient list, which they list as,

“Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic, Anhydride Copolymer, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Diacetone Alcohol Styrene, Acrylates Copolymer, Silica, Citric Acid, Benzophenone‐1

(May contain):

Mica, Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Bismuth Oxychloride, Aluminum Powder, D&C Red No. 7 Calcium Lake, D&C Violet No. 2, FD&C Yellow No. 5 Alluminum Lake, Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide”

Very discouraging. The conclusion I’ve come to is this:

Mineral Fusion nail polish is an improvement on the nail polish made by major beauty manufacturers. Unfortunately though, it seems that to avoid these chemicals, wearing no nail polish seems to be the safest route. I’ve concluded this because even “natural” brands like this one are still interested in their polish having staying power, which will always come from chemicals. To end with a positive, I’ll say…This is a step in the right direction.
