From salads to smoothies, Kale is now a staple among the healthy eating set. The green superfood is tasked with everything from cleaning out stubborn digestive systems, to boosting immunity and correcting chronic internal complaints.
Now the beauty industry is trying to cash in on the Kale craze. First up, a new line of nail polishes, that promise to go beyond simply coating your tips in pretty colors. Nails Inc. is behind the Nailkale: the first range of nail care formulated with kale extract. Model Alexa Chung is the face of the new line, which includes a superfood base coat, an illuminator and four nail colors. Brand officials say the polishes stimulate keratin production, hydrate, and nourish the nail area. The result, according to Nails Inc., is longer stronger nails. NailKale makes its official debut in August.
