10+ Fruity Non Toxic Nail Polish Colors For Summer

Last Updated on

Summer means a lot of things to a lot of people, but for me, there’s definitely something I look forward to when the heat is on: fresh fruit! Soft peaches, tart cherries, juicy watermelons…all in season, at last!

And reflecting the best food news of the season is the best beauty trend: fruity nails for summer. And by that, I mean juicy ‘Jolly Rancher’ fruity candy colours for your tips and toes.

It’s easy to do, and there are plenty of great 5, 7, and even 9-free nail polish brands to help you get the trend. In case you’re wondering, 5-free means the varnish will not contain:

  • 1. Formaldehyde
  • 2. Toluene
  • 3. DBP
  • 4. Camphor
  • 5. Formaldehyde resin

And anything above that will lose two or more of these, too:

  • 6. Xylene
  • 7. Parabens
  • 8. Fragrances
  • 9. Phthalates
  • 10. Animal ingredients
  • 11. Gluten

Here’s now to get your fingertips and toes ready for summer exposure in the most non-toxic way possible!

10+ Fruity Non Toxic Nail Polish Colors For Summer

1. Strawberry

Feminine and sweet is the girl who wears this bright shade during the summer The medium toned pink creme polish by 100% Pure provides a romantic flair that’s perfect for a date night. It’s 10 free, which means it is, of course, vegan friendly, too.

Tip: Make sure to brush slightly under the tip of the nail to prevent premature tip wear..

2. Grape 

If you want to make a bold, yet fruity statement, choose a grape hue like Kure Bazaar’s tattoo. It’s a deep, rich purple from a pioneering nail polish brand. Made of up to 85% natural origin, including wood pulp, wheat, cotton, potatoes and corn, Kure Bazaar’s varnish glides on with a high shine, impeccable resistance and lasts as well as its synthetic counterparts.

3. Cherry

Sassy and luscious sums up this aubergine dream hue by Gloss. It offers high coverage with a volumising, gel like texture and an extremely glossy finish that doesn’t fade. The best part is that this shade, despite the name, is far more ‘cherry’ than ‘aubergine’ – it’s the perfect accessory to open toe sandals!

4. Watermelon

Yep, I know this is another Kure Bazaar varnish, but Glamour is a medium pink shade that beautifully mimics the colour of watermelon. And as you know, the brand combines the ethics of a new, environmentally friendly formula with trendy, vibrant colours. Tip: Why not buy some black polish and paint some teeny, weeny ‘seeds’ on top of the pink?

Another citrus colour that provides a feeling of joy and flintiness is…orange! Givenchy may be a surprising brand to see on this page, but you should know: they actually provide a magnificent palette of colours that are 5-free, containing no harsh chemicals including: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DPT), toluene, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. Coquette is the shade of their blood-orange hued polish.

Blueberries hold an intriguing fascination, because they are a rare example of the colour blue in nature. To enhance this sense of extravagance, Smith & Cult Smith & Cult describes its 5- free, opaque ‘Kings & Thieves’ nail polish as a “dark ink blue.” It’s formulated for a quick-drying, high-gloss finish and though dark, it casts an attractive indigo hue – a feat most near-black shades don’t achieve.
