Earth Day Blog Series | Red Head Nails


Hello and happy Friday! As Earth Day nears the posts are ramping up as well! Today we have a creator that I just love seeing on Instagram and am so so excited to have her join us! Let's go see what Red Read Nails has in store for us.



Hello guys!

I'm so thrilled to be a part of the Earth Day Blog Series! Thanks so much Sarah for inviting me. I'd like to focus on the issue of generating waste and how do we – nail artists - can help reducing waste in our environment.

Some time ago, while painting my nails and prepairing some nail art on the  swatching stick, I started to wonder what is the influence of my hobby to the enviroment. Tons of cotton pads used for removing nail polish as well as for cleasning face every day, disposable swatching sticks... Of course there are things we can't get rid off completely, but small step taken everyday can decrease our bad influence on Earth's environment.



In genereal what I decided to do, was to stop using long swatching sticks. Instead of that I use small, nail-size ones. I also use them repeatedly (if at all), just paint new nail art over the previous one covered with white polish. I also swiched to non-acetone remover (which works a bit slower but is incomparably better for the condition of nails).

And – what was real game-changer for me - I stopped using regular cotton makeup removing pads and replaced them with Moon Pads from GLOV. I want to tell you more about them and encourage you to try them. Although it might sound like a sponsored post – trust me, it's not. I bought them on my own and really want to share with you a great and effortless way to remove your makeup and cleansing your face without generating unnecessary waste :) A win-win :)


There's not much to say about the product itself – there are 5 reusable pads in the package. You can remove makeup with the pad soaked with warm water, so you don't need face cleansing milk, eye makeup remover, face wash gel or anything you've been using to clean your face. Less waste and money saving, yay! I was skeptical at the beginning, but it really works! You can really clean your face with no additional cosmetics! How cool is that?! And you don't need to use few cotton pads, but only this one little fluffy helper. I use it also in the morning, with my fav micellar water, to freshen up after the night. You can use the pad everyday, for up to 3 months, cleaning it with soap after every use and machine washing from time to time.

You may ask – what about cotton pads used for nail polish removing? Well, Moon Pads can't handle that, but using them – I reduce the consumption of pads by 50% in my household, thereby – I reduce waste.

For the nail art you see in this post, I used “Another Ramen-tic Evening” & “Arigato from Tokyo” from OPI “Tokyo” collection.



Thanks for reading, I hope that it will encourage reflection on your everyday actions. Protecting environment is not only about protesting and chaining yourself to power plant chimney ;) I believe that small steps can really do something big, but only if we all make an effort.
