SANTE Nail Polish Review & Photos

SANTE Nail Polish

SANTE Nail Polish, which is not only cruelty free, but also vegan and gluten free, was sent for review. Every Sante Nail Polish is identified by number, located on the bottom of each 7 mL clear glass bottle. I have No. 01: French Clear, No. 02: French White, No. 15: red, and No. 20, an aubergine black. Here is a photo of all of the available Sante Nail Polish:

Sante Nail Polish

Sante Nail Polish is excellent! I’m not a nail blogger and all of the polish that was sent was easy to work with. They are all, as advertised, very rich in color and very shiny before even applying a top coat. The polish is quick to dry, and lasted several days without having any chips. Sante points out that while their nail polish is not water based, (it’s a solvent base), it is made without Dibutyl Pthalate, Toluene and Formaldehyde, colophony (rosin), synthetic preservatives, and synthetic fragrances.

That was my hope, but I had no idea how to do that, and exactly what cruelty free products I should even purchase; so I headed to Sally Beauty to get the supplies. After explaining what I wanted to accomplish, I was not only shown all the materials I needed, but I also received a tutorial from my new best friend, Christina A., a Certified Cosmetologist,

  Loose Glitter Nail Art Tutorial

Step 1: Apply any Sally Girl pink nail polish color to the whole nail. Make sure to let your nails dry!

Step 2: Use tape, or freehand, to create a french tip in a black nail polish color. Use any cruelty free black (this one in the photo was FingerPaints in Black Expressionism).

Step 3: Make sure to let the nail polish dry completely.

Step 4: Apply a clear coat of nail polish across the edge of the black line, and then before it dries…

Step 5: Roll it in the loose glitter of your choice. That’s so the glitter sticks to the polish! Now let dry.

Sweet Heart Polish

Sweet Heart Polish is all hand-blended by the owner Cassandra LeBeau. Sweet Heart Polish is cruelty free, vegan and 5 free. Just a reminder that 5 free means that Sweet Heart Polish does not  contain formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene, and camphor. In addition, back in March, Cassandra started to donate $1.00 from each bottle of Sweet Heart Polish sold to an autism charity.

Now that you know some details about Sweet Heart Polish, I’ll share some photos and information about the two polishes that were sent for review by Gloss48. The Sweet Heart Polishes that were sent: Mystery and Dazzle.
