Suncoat water-based nail polish replaces the chemical solvents (toluene and acetates etc) with water. Toluene and formaldehyde-free nail polish is only one step forward while Suncoat water-based nail polish is a revolutionary advance!
Suncoat water-based nail polish contains ~70% water. When applied, water vapor is released in to the air, not chemical fumes. Thus Suncoat water-based nail polish is:
- environmentally friendly
- does not dry or discolor nails
- virtually odor-free
- Mineral pigments and natural colorants
11ml / 0.37oz
Main ingredients: Aqua (water, ~65% in formula), acrylate copolymer / styrene-acrylate copolymer (~28% in formula) Other ingredients (all under 4%): propylene glycol n-butyl ether, dipropylene glycol dibenzoate.

CLEAN YOUR NAILS:
In preparation for using Suncoat water-based nail polish, ensure that your nails are dry and free of grease, skin lotion, and dirt. Clean your nails with soap and water. Oil and skin lotion repel water-based polish, so they may significantly affect the polishâ€™s durability.
No base coat needed: as Suncoat water-based nail polish will not stain your nails.
Apply multi-thin coats for long lasting effect, and to avoid streaking. Brush on lightly and evenly. Two coats, or more, are needed for a long-lasting finish. Allow the polish to dry between coats – 30 seconds, or more, depending on the humidity and temperature.
Can add one or 2 drops of water to the polish bottle if the polish is too thick. Shake well before use. Adding too much water can cause color separation.
Suncoat Crystal Clear Top Coat (color ID #23): is applied for a greater resistance to chipping and gives that extra professional touch to your manicure. It also enables the finish to last up to 2 – 3 days longer.
Avoid soaking your nails in hot water during the first couple of hours after the application. Normal showering and dishwashing is usually fine after one hour as long as the polish is not scratched. Ideally do not use very hot water on your nails for the first 4 hours after application. Although dry to the touch, the polish is still curing / drying throughout the day (or overnight if applied in the evening).
Some of the nail polish colors may not be as intense as they look in the bottle. This is partly because earth pigments, instead of FD&S dyes, are being used to color the nail polish. Apply a minimum of 2 thin coats and then additional thin coats to strengthen the color.
Suncoat Water-based nail polish has been formulated to adhere well to the nail bed. If left on nails for an extended time, it may require more effort to remove. For easier removal, remove the polish weekly.
French Manicure: Use Pearl White (#01) and French Pink (#12).
For a Vegan French Manicure use Pearl White (#01) and Innocent Nude (#27).
HOW TO REMOVER SUNCOAT WATER-BASED NAIL POLISH:
Remove polish weekly with Suncoat Nail Polish Remover.
Hold the remover on your nails with a well-soaked cotton ball, allowing at least 2 minutes for the remover to penetrate and soften the polish. Then rub the nails until the polish is fully removed. One liberally soaked cotton ball is usually enough to clean all your nails as the remover liquid evaporates slowly. Repeat if necessary. Wash your hands with soap and water.
Eco-friendly practices and kinder products sometimes require more time and greater patience.
REMOVAL WITHOUT POLISH REMOVER:
We recommend using Suncoat Natural Nail Polish Remover especially for weak or damaged nails. It is also possible to soak your nails in hot water for at least 2 minutes (or following a hot bath or shower), and gently scrape off the polish using your fingernails, or a flat tipped wood stick. If the polish has been on your nails for more than two weeks, it is usually hard to remove in which case allow your nails grow out.
If your nails are weak and damaged, please consult your health care provider for advice.
Once open use within 24 months.
Keep in a cool and dry place, out of reach of children.
Never allow the polish to freeze.
