What is 3 free nail polish? 3 free nail polish is Formaldehyde, Toluene, and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) free. These chemicals are reported to have health risks and be bad for the environment. I know there is some debate about the health risks. I’m just a schmo who has no idea how to review the science, so I can't give an informed opinion. There is more info in the link below. Most nail polish formulas these days are now at least 3 free.

Link that lists 3 free (and more) nail polishes
In addition to the polishes listed in the link, Jordanna (at K-mart) is also 3 free.
you might care even if you don’t care? Big 3 free top and base coats
are not as common. If you mix a non 3 free top or base coat with a 3
free polish, it could mean trouble. If you use a toluene containing top
coat over a 3 free polish, it may come off in large chips. (*Light
bulb appears over head .* This may be my issue with Wet n Wild Gray’s Anatomy
pealing off in sheets.) If you use a base coat containing formeldehyde,
you may get yellow staining on your nails. I believe this what was
happening to me when I was using Rimmel Pro Top Coat/Base Coat as a base
coat. My nails looked like I was a chain smoker (I don't smoke). The base coat didn’t
react with every polish formula/color, so it took me a while to figure
it out. Essie, Zoya, Nubar and Carolyn New York top and base coats are 3 free.
