J. Hannah’s Ghost Ranch
J.Hannah’s Ghost Ranch is that perfect ‘burnt pumpkin’ you’ve been looking for to pair with all of your adventures this fall. All of J. Hannah’s polishes are 8-free, which means the nail polish is created without any carcinogenic chemicals including toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, camphor, dibutyl phthalate, triphenyl phosphate, ethyl tosylamide, and xylene. We like it.

Olive and June’s Pumpkin Spice Kit
Olive and June’s Pumpkin Spice Kit might be a little too on the nose for fall, but it pairs so well with our pumpkin spiced candles, lattes, diffusers, pop corn, bubble gum — life? Anyway, it’s toxic free so, it could be worse. Stop judging us. We can hear you.

Butter London’s Toff
Another one that’s almost good enough to eat (don’t though, toxic free does not equal editable), Butter London’s Toff is a sweet shade of sugar plum that will bring you from golden leaves, to mistletoe all in the time it takes for your nails to dry. With Butter London's reputation as one of the original chemical free polishes, you can trust the quality and wear of this brand.
Pro tip:They also carry the best top coat in the chemical free game.

Pacifica’s Eternal Flame
Pacifica’s Eternal Flame gets points for it’s metallic finish on a rusty orange base, making it rival even the most stunning of fall sunsets. Known as the affordable clean beauty gateway brand, Pacifica’s toxic free polishes are a great place to start exploring with chemical free polishes.

Nail’s Inc’s Spiritual Gangster
Nails Inc takes it up a notch with its 21 (yup, 21!) chemical free ingredient list, plus its halal. And if none of that impresses you (it should), you’ll love this rich navy colour, ideal for pairing with denim.

Sally Hansen’s Beet It

Essie’s Take the Espresso
The only thing we don’t like about Essie’s Take the Espresso is the visual that someone might try to take coffee from us. Other than that, the deep coffee hue and three free formula is something to love. Pairs nicely with croissants.
