A Beautiful Life

Unconventional Nails

When Jennifer Artur couldn’t find the nail polish colors she wanted, she teamed with her husband Tony and created her own edgy palette… with a healthy twist. Jennifer and Tony eliminated three significant ingredients commonly found in nail polish: Toluene, which is used as a solvent; Formaldehyde, a preservative that hardens nails; and Dibutyl Phthalate, a plasticizer that makes polish flexible.

When Jennifer Artur couldn’t find the nail polish colors she wanted, she teamed with her husband Tony and created her own edgy palette… with a healthy twist. Jennifer and Tony eliminated three significant ingredients commonly found in nail polish: Toluene, which is used as a solvent; Formaldehyde, a preservative that hardens nails; and Dibutyl Phthalate, a plasticizer that makes polish flexible.

You won’t find any of these harsh chemicals in their soy-based nail lacquers or their citrus-infused polish remover. What you will find are rockin’ colors with names like Hot Rod, Venom and Shroom. You can paint on Vexed if you have a hankering for a chocolaty topcoat, then switch it up for the Blues if you’re in the mood for something more electric.

It’s easy to see the inspiration for these colors when you meet the couple behind the company, called A Beautiful Life. Jennifer is a makeup artist, musician and roller derby gal. Tony is a musician, former professional chef and onetime owner of a doo-wop motel in New Jersey. And when they’re not taking care of their kids or mixing the next great nail color, Jennifer and Anthony play in an ’80s heavy-metal revival band, Coverboy.

A Beautiful Life is not your mother’s conservative, chemical-laden lacquer, nor your daughter’s rainbow-hued play polish. But every generation can find something to love about this safe, cool and refreshingly unconventional collection.
