ABOUT RAW NAILS
RAW Nails was established in 2019 when Founder Melissa Melo, became highly conscious about the toxicity of the majority of beauty products on the market. “After changing all of my body and hair products, I knew the only thing left I needed to change was my nail polish.” Being a nail polish fanatic, Melissa was on the hunt for a non-toxic, less harsh nail polish.
After endless searching and scouring store shelves for the right all-natural textures and colours, a thought came to Melissa, “I should start a vegan nail line.” In 2005, Melo attended a prestige beauty school where she graduated with an advances aesthetics diploma. At the time, she wasn’t sure about what she wanted to do. However, she was confident it was within the beauty industry.
After working in several salons and spas, Melissa discovered where her passion was; Nail polish. She quickly became obsessed with developing beautiful, striking, and trendy vegan and cruelty-free products for herself and consumers. Her goal is to highlight the benefits of vegan and cruelty-free nail polishes to educate others on the harmful chemicals found in their beauty routine products and encourage them to switch to natural alternatives.
Today, all RAW Nails polishes are non-toxic, vegan and cruelty-free, advocating for health while allowing you to express your unique style.
