Knocked Up Nails polishes are 4-free. They don't contain toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, or camphor. They are also cruelty free(CF) and made in the USA. Although these polishes are marketed to the pregnant crowd, but are also safe for allergy suffers, cancer patients, and children. Who doesn't want less chemicals in their nail polish?
As you all remember if you read my post back in February, I am pregnant right now with our 2nd child! So of course I would love looking into safer alternatives for my nail polish habit to make it safer on my son. I also would feel better using this polish brand on my soon-to-be-4 year old daughter.
I am going to show you Mint Chip At Midnight! "Mama’s love a little mint chip at midnight – right out of the carton and on their fingertips!" This is listed as a mint green creme polish, but while applying it seemed more like a "squishy" creme to me. It needed 3 coats to even out and be fully opaque for me, but it was so super shiny! I really like it! Would you believe the swatch photo below is without top coat? It's a bit less blue toned than I would have expected for a mint icecream color, but I really like the color on me!
I just love the bottle logo!
Look at that shine! No topcoat! Such a pretty color.
And because you all know me, I can't leave a color(even a pretty color) alone on my nails for long! How could I not want to do some kind of mint chip ice cream design with this polish?
I added one coat of Nubar Black Polka Dot to make the chocolate chips in my ice cream. For the accent nail I did 2 coats of OPI Happy Anniversary over Mint Chip At Midnight, OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know? for the cone and then Knocked Up Nails Mint Chip At Midnight with Nubar Black Polka Dot again on the icecream scoop. Cult Nails Wicked Fast topped each nail after that.

One more picture for you. My friend Charlotte suggested I do a belly shot picture with my nails for this post. This is Knocked Up Nails we are talking about! :)

All in all, I enjoyed using this polish! The names and brand are so adorable and I love that they are 4 free and safer than other polishes. Even though this color needed 3 coats, the application wasn't tricky and it dried to a super shiny finish. What do you think about Knocked Up Nails?
