    Greening My Nail Polish Collection

    Zoya Polish

    A few months ago, I went through my nail polish collection and tossed the bottles I’ve had for years and years. This is before I knew how to properly dispose of them. I still have 35 bottles that I know I will be disposing of for sure and 7 in question. For now, I am sending in 8 bottles of polish to the Zoya Nail Polish Exchange. They will send me 8 new bottles of Zoya polish of my choice at 50% off! I am so excited because I’ve been wanting to purchase a few Zoya polishes, but at $7 a bottle? Yea right. I paid $3.50 per bottle and $7.67 to mail my old polishes via UPS. It sucks that I can’t use USPS because they are hazardous liquids.

    For this reason, I don’t think I will be sending in another batch of polish in the future. I can’t keep paying $7.67 each time I want to exchange polish. I’ll probably send my remaining polish to a hazardous waste collection. I’ll then, pick up some cheaper eco-friendly polish from diamond cosmetics or my local beauty supply. By June 30th, I hope to have a large collection of DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde free nail polish!
