Wine for your nails? No silly. But this Italian-inspired nail laquer collection may make your mouth water.

Just because I am an Earth Mama, does not mean that I'm a "dirty hippie" with hand-sewn clothes, no make up, and a deodorant issue. I am quite the clotheshorse, with three closets and several drawers full of clothes. I also own enough make up for the entire cast of Cats to use for their 12-week run on Broadway. But in the past year, I've become more wary of the tube of lipstick in the local drug store.

My aunt sent me a website a year ago that changed my out look on make up. Skin Deep is a website that tells you what is in your makeup, lotions, and skin care products. And it is scary!

So imagine how excited I was when I received a set of eight carcinogenic-free (non-cancer causing) nail polishes. The Vineyard Collection by Nubar is a healthy alternative for beautiful nails. The nail polish colors are inspired by Italy's countless fields of wild flowers, rolling vineyards and magnificent scenery. They are all named after various wines and are rich vino-toned colors. What makes this nail polish so special is that there is no formaldehyde, toluene, or phthalate in them. The absence of these common nail polish toxins make these fabulous polishes an instant Earth Mama favorite.

The Nubar Vineyard Nail Lacquer Collection is available at www.bynubar.com for $45.
