The perfect nail polish to top off your mani or pedi

No manicure or pedicure is complete without the perfect polish, and thanks to locally-owned Hoopla Studio, you can find a shade free of dangerous chemicals with the same pop of color.

All Hoopla polishes are made free of toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl, phthalate, and camphor, five of the more questionable ingredients that make up other formulas.

The mini polishes can be purchased for $10 a piece, and range in color from bright pink and blue to soft pastels and neutrals. A few of our personal favorites include “Peacock Blues” and “Diagnose Me,” both inspired by personal aspects of co-founder Molly Maxwell’s life.

(“Diagnose Me” was inspired by Maxwell’s former career as a social worker, and “Peacock Blues” is named after her son Sully and his blue/green-colored eyes.)

You can browse and buy Hoopla polishes here, as well as schedule services at one of their three locations in Leawood, Fairway or the Crossroads.
