Not Just Pretty

Raya du Plooy

Here at Oh Flossy we have been working on some new products and we are beyond thrilled to announce them.

Introducing...

Oh Flossy's Not Just Pretty nail polish!

This formula is salon quality, durable and bold in its colouring. We tried many different types of nail polishes for this line and whilst the options were fabulous, our research always ended with little ones still wanting their parents' polish rather than one that peels or washes off. So we went back to the drawing board and researched what parents would want for their own collection, what ingredients we absolutely need to avoid and what integral qualities we wanted for the polishes. 
We found ourselves with an exceptional salon quality polish that is durable, long wearing, has phenomenal colour pay-off for one or two coats, allows water and oxygen to reach the nailbed while coated (this means healthier nails) and is free from 10 of the most toxic ingredients in majority of nail polishes. 

  • Formaldehyde
  • Tosylamide Formaldehyde Resin & Ethyl Tosylamide
  • Toluene
  • Dibutyl Phthalate
  • Xylene
  • Triphenyl Phosphate
  • Camphor
  • Benzophenone-1
  • Styrene Acrylates
  • Animal Derived Ingredients

They are also free from fragrance, preservatives and parabens.


Then came the name. How do we continue to create dramatic change in our culture of body image issues, severe lack of self confidence in children, adolescents and adults while providing opportunities for encouragement, acceptance and love? That's simple. We go against the norm and push some boundaries in the hopes that our nail polish takes over every salon, home and opportunity for self care and becomes a conversational point for every person exposed to it. If reminders of who you are rather than how you look is available at all times, then perhaps a rearrangement of our cognitive function will occur and the culture will follow. 

Our six shades of polish are

BRAVE
STRONG
INTELLIGENT
RESOLUTE
BRILLIANT
KIND

Because you were never just 'pretty'

So join with us in pushing these boundaries to change the culture our children will grow up in. Let's get this message out there and create a generation of strong, brave, intelligent, resolute, brilliant and kind people who will know that the way they were made is perfect. No exceptions.
