We Definitely Recommend Trying Jessica Alba's Favourite Nude Nail Polish

Kaitlyn McLintock


Jessica Alba really seems to have her life together. She somehow manages to balance a billion-dollar company with an acting career and two children, plus a third on the way. (That's not even to mention her always flawless hair, skin, and makeup.)

Recently, Alba opened up to People magazine about her busy lifestyle and the products she relies on to keep pace with it. We assumed that her favourite beauty products would hail from her brand, The Honest Company, but we were surprised to learn that for certain things, she branches out. Take her manicure, for instance. Since Honest Beauty doesn't make nail polishes (at least not yet), she reaches for a shade from Butter London, which just so happens to be a Byrdie-favourite brand too.

Butter London Patent Shine 10X Lacquer in Yummy Mummy ($25)

"Their colours are consistently great," Alba said, referencing Butter London's extensive colour collection, "but this is one of my favourites." We can see why. We're dying to try this cool-toned taupe; it's the perfect work-to-weekend nail polish shade, no? The formula applies like a gel and stays chip-resistant for 10 days. Bamboo powder protects and strengthens your nails why diamond powder gives it that high-shine lustre. But the best part has to be what's not in it. Butter London formulates all of its nail varnishes without eight common but harmful ingredients: formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, xylene, and TPHP.

Alba also shared her love for the Tweezerman Eyelash Curler ($38), which always opens up her eyes "no matter what," and the Joya Composition Roll-On Parfum ($30), which includes the scent of mandarin and Brazilian orange. "It's really pretty and subtle," she said, "not too musky and not too sweet."
