Update October 2013: Go Natural nail polish will no longer be available for purchase.

Applying Go Natural Nail Polish

As with any water-based nail polish, the best time to paint your nails is right before going to bed. This allows the polish to cure overnight and reach its full hardness and chip-resistant state.

You will need:

  • Go Natural primecoat
  • Go Natural nail polish in the color of your choice
  • Go Natural topcoat
  • Hair dryer (optional)


  1. Wash your hands with soap and water to remove any oil or lotion from nails.
  2. Swipe Go Natural nail polish remover across your nails and rinse with just water, to make your nails squeaky clean.
  3. Apply primecoat to the tips and edges of your nails and allow it to dry for 30 seconds.
  4. Make sure the colored polish is well mixed before using. If the polish is too thick, add a drop or two of water and shake well. I like to thoroughly shake the polish the day before painting my nails, to allow time for the bubbles to disappear.
  5. Apply two thin coats of colored polish, allowing the polish to dry for 30 seconds between coats. If you have a hair dryer, you can use it on the low setting to dry your nails for 30 second between coats.
  6. Apply one very thin coat of topcoat. If you use too much it will become uneven. Optionally, you can dry the topcoat with a hair dryer set on low heat for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Avoid soaking nails in hot water for 2-4 hours after painting nails. The polish will be dry to the touch after 15 minutes, but it can take up to 6 hours to fully cure and become water resistant.

Removing Go Natural Nail Polish

You will need:

  • Either Go Natural VOC Compliant Nail Polish Remover (for California), or
  • Go Natural Very Low Odor Nail Polish Remover
  • Cotton Rounds


  1. Within the first 2-3 days, Go Natural nail polish can supposedly be removed with natural grain alcohol. I plan to try this soon and let you know how it works.
  2. Over time the nail polish becomes more difficult to remove and after 5-7 days, Go Natural Remover must be used.
  3. Using a cotton round, swipe remover across all of your nails. Repeat until your nails appear saturated.
  4. Then, one nail at a time, hold the cotton round soaked in remover against your nail for 30 seconds – 2 minutes.
  5. Rub off the nail polish with the cotton round.
  6. Wash your hands with soap and water.
  7. Moisturize your hands and cuticles.
