Brooklyn Native Owner of MOLAS Boutique Spa

Posted by Teeara Ida on

Nothing makes me more excited than women supporting other women. When we come together as one we can really make powerful things happen! Law Beauty Essential would like to take some time out to celebrate the black-owned nail lounge and spa “MOLAS Boutique Spa” based out of Brooklyn, New York. Law Beauty Essentials had the honor to partner with MOLAS featuring their vegan nail polish line in the salon. This collaboration is epic because both owners are from Brooklyn and are able to contribute to their community. Entrepreneurship isn't easy so having women come together to connect their business goals is lit! Not only are they here to uplift their community but allowing them to utilize their internal resources is what helps them to rise above.

Shining light on the woman who makes it all happen Ms. Yami owner of MOLAS Boutique Spa. Here we will dig a little deeper into the startup of her entrepreneurial background and the reason behind her hustle!

5 Free nail polish line!

Posted by Tanisha Lawrence on

What's "5-free" any way? Many of you may ask. It's a term used to distinguish nail polishes that are made without 5 harsh chemicals used in many well known nail polish brands.
1. Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) - known to cause life long reproductive impairments and also linked to cancer. Used in nail polish to increase flexibility and shine.
2. Toluene - Harmful to your nervous system. Inhaling high levels can cause light-headedness and nausea. Used in nail polish as a thinner and gives application a smooth finish.
3. Formaldehyde - is a chemical used to embalm dead animals and humans. Can trigger asthma. Is a well known carcinogen (causes cancer). Used in nail polish as a hardener/preservation. Helps from chipping
4. Formaldehyde Resin - Derivative of formaldehyde, however not as toxin. Skin allergen known to cause dermatitis. Used in nail polish top coats as a nail strengthener.
5. Camphor - poisonous. Can cause seizures and disorientation if used in large doses. Acts as a cover on your nails, which deprives them of nutrients and causing yellow staining on your nails.
Well there you have it! A little fun fact to look into when you choose your nail polish!
