Cotton candy pink, cherry drop red and bon bon blue are just a few nail polish shades we found that will make your hands look good enough to eat. And you know what else is sweet? Every brand we picked has made the ‘5 free’ pledge to their customers, which means they don’t include nasty ingredients that can seriously harm your health–namely Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Synthetic Camphor and Formaldehyde Resin–in their formulas.
So feel free to ‘Pick ‘n’ Mix‘ whichever type of this candy coloured nail polish takes your fancy!
Australian company Willow Byron Bay specialise in eco-friendly nail polishes, by using cruelty-free, vegan components. This hot pink cotton candy nail varnish will look radiant all year round. It’s a bit translucent and has a fantastic sheer finish.
Your candy hued nail polish collection wouldn’t be complete without a stunning tangerine jelly shade! This bold nail polish is by Kure Bazaar, a company that thrives on creating eco-friendly and vibrant nail lacquers.
This blue reminds us not of the French skies above Paris, but the macarons you’ll find in all the patisseries around the city. Laduree, here we come!
Painting your nails a bright shade of yellow might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this lemony yellow shade by the 5-free Australian company Limedrop is far from garish. Reminds us of boiled lemon sweets!
Los Angeles based company NCLA pride themselves on their ‘5 free’ luxury nail lacquers and this one is dazzling! Neutral at the base, it looks a bit like someone stuck their fingers in cake sprinkles…yum!
This intensely red vegan nail polish by RGB is cruelty-free and gluten-free and makes us think of cherry drops. It has a certain opulent quality to it and as the name suggests, it is a classic!
Do you dare to stand out with this sugarred, purple toned nail polish by Zoya? We love it–it’s kind of a ‘gothic grape!’
We’re not sure exactly which kind of Bon Bon is the same colour as this sky blue shade of this nail polish by 5 free Australian brand Picture Polish, but it’s probably delicious!
This is a whole different shade of blue nail polish–more like a sugary blueberry Skittle! Check out a more detailed review of this vegan, 4-free brand here.
Remember those red liquorice whips from when you were a kid? They were deeply red but also a bit translucent, just like this hue from one of the world’s first ever 4 free brands, Mavala.
Whether it makes you think of pistachio ice cream or the middle of a chocolate mint fondant, there’s no denying that this shade is sweet!
Looking for something that literally looks as though you’ve dipped your fingers in sugary sprinkles? Then these press ons are perfect! Great at birthday parties especially, and they last time after time.
