As the world becomes more and more globalised, it’s not hard to imagine week-long vacations and even weekend getaways in once far-flung destinations. Not only is today’s generation unafraid to travel (and travel a lot), they’re eager to rack up stamps in their passport, trading in day bags for ready-to-go carry-ons. And smart brands are capitalising on this trend.
Meet Passport Polish, the beauty brand that is giving you a new way to scratch the travel itch – and all while taking care of your lips and nails. Based out of New Orleans, Mari, the Latina owner and founder, combined her two greatest passions – travel and nail polish – to create a unique company she could really put her heart and soul into. Making each nail polish by hand, blending colours to achieve perfection, Mari dives into the culture and history of each country featured in the Passport Polish collection in order to create authentic (and fun) colours women crave.
But, if the colours weren’t enough to entice (which they are), there’s always the ingredients, something that sets Passport Polish apart from the pack. Each handmade polish is vegan, cruelty-free, and “10-free” (a hard-to-find type of nail polish that doesn’t contain the ten most harmful ingredients, including formaldehyde, toluene, parabens, fragrances, and phthalates). In addition to not finding certain ingredients in the Passport Polish line-up, you’ll also find Vitamin E, which is included to help promote healthy and strong nails, ones that look and feel as beautiful as the polish you put on them.
Focusing on polishes for nails, Passport Polish also has ready-to-please lipsticks in the same internationally-inspired colours. And, if you find yourself short on must-have products for taking care of beauty business, like powder, primer, and polish remover, Passport Polish’s online store has you covered there, too.
Ready to collect your first stamp? As the weather heats up, we can’t get enough of the island-inspired Caribbean Collection Nail Polish. Featuring a “millennial” pink from Martinique, earthy green from Jamaica, the perfect shade of purple from Dominica, bright orange from Haiti, and a cheerful yellow from Grenada, the Caribbean Collection has all of the colours you need to keep your nails looking their best all summer long. And, if like us you can’t choose your favourite colour, consider buying the entire collection (a smart move if your travel fever is running high).
And, of course, you can take care of your lips with the new Passport Pout Lipsticks. Taking you from the wine-country of Argentina to the East African coasts of Kenya, these colours range from barely-there to bold, giving you the ideal way to perfect your pout.
As fun as it is friendly, Passport Polish is a brand you can feel good about supporting. And, when you start collecting compliments like stamps in your passport, it’s a brand you’ll feel good about sharing, too! To find out more and shop online, visit: passportpolish.com
