Ani Michele Golden Opportunity Nail Polish Review

Ani Michele Golden Opportunity

Ani Michele Golden Opportunity is another shade that I received from the new Metallic Nail Polish Collection. As the name implies, this is a gorgeous shimmery gold polish. It’s cruelty free, vegan, and also 7-Free of Chemicals. In addition, all of the ani Michele polishes are made in the United States. This shade doesn’t need anything added to have your nails look dazzling. However, I did want to share another shade, so I added a base color of Love Bug to the Ani Michele Golden Opportunity
nail art.

Ani Michele polish is 7-free of Chemicals. Do you know what that means? It means that the polish is free of the three common chemicals found in many nail polishes: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde. In addition, it does not have four other chemicals: Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, TPHP and Xylene. Hence, the 7-free label.

In case you haven’t read any of my previous reviews, I’ll fill you in on some facts. Ani Sousamian is the founder and owner of ani Michele. Since early childhood, Ani has had a passion and infatuation for nail polish. I’m thankful that in addition to being cruelty free and vegan, each of the shades are either 5-free or 7-free of chemicals!  Ani wants her beautiful lacquer bottles to,“inspire, empower and compliment each women’s beauty and personality, inside and out.” Don’t you love what is on the back of the Ani Michele Golden Opportunity Nail Polish bottle? “Dream Big, Sparkle More, Shine Bright.” Everyone should appreciate that Ani’s belief in staying positive and hoping for the best is incorporated in her motto: “Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.”

Metallic Nail Polish Collection from Ani Michele

Metallic Nail Polish Collection from Ani Michele

Ani Michele has a new Metallic Nail Polish Collection, and People’s Choice is one that I received. This is a perfect example of a true rose gold color. It is cruelty free, vegan, and also 7-Free of Chemicals. All of the Ani Michele polishes are made in the United States. I also wanted to do some nail art, so I decided to add a snowflake using another shade from the Metallic Nail Polish Collection: Wishing on a Star Sparkle. This is a beautiful shade of silver!

Ani Michele is also cruelty free, vegan, and 7-free of Chemicals. I’d like to take a moment to explain what 7-free means. Not only does the polish not have the three common chemicals found in many nail polishes: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, but it also does not have four other chemicals: Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, TPHP and Xylene.

So, who is the person behind ani Michele? Ani Sousamian is the founder and owner. Since early childhood, Ani has had a passion and infatuation for nail polish. The ani MICHELE lacquer is different from the “typical” polish you would purchase. The list of differences is large. It’s cruelty free, vegan, and made in the United States. Depending on the shade, it’s either five free of chemicals, or it’s seven free! Also, Ani wants her beautiful lacquer bottles to,“inspire, empower and compliment each women’s beauty and personality, inside and out.”

I also love that Ani believes in staying positive and hoping for the best. Her inspirational motto supports that:  

 

“Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.”

I think ani MICHELE polish is fantastic. It is fast drying, long lasting, and has a fabulous glossy sheen. Yes, you absolutely should add a top coat so the polish will last longer. However, both shades, People’s Choice and Wishing On a Star Sparkle, are beautiful without one. I like the look and feel of the glass bottle, and the brush is just the right width for painting my fingernails. Both of these shades from the Metaillic Nail Polish Collection are highly recommended!

Metallic Nail Polish Collection

Ani wants her ani MICHELE polish to be a reminder to live a positive karmic lifestyle, feel good about yourself, and make a positive impact on those around you.

Stay tuned for next Monday’s manicure, where I will share another shade from the Metallic Nail Polish Collection.

Christmas Nail Art Using Flourish From Inkk

 Christmas Nail Art Using Flourish From Inkk

Today’s maniure is Christmas Nail Art using one of the many beautiful shades of polish from Inkk: Flourish. Flourish is a gorgeous jewel toned green that works anytime, obviously not just during the Holiday season! This shade is part of the Inkk Collection Muse, and they’re all inspired by the Great Masterworks of Art.  If you haven’t checked out all of my previous reviews of Inkk Lacquers, you may start with the most recent, a Burberry Inspired Nail Art post. I know that not everyone celebrates Christmas, so I’ll have a different theme next week. For now, I’m trying to work on perfecting my stamping with this Christmas Nail Art:

Inkk is vegan and cruelty free nail polish. The gorgeous bottles hold a very large amount of polish, 18ml. They are made in the USA, although the company is based in Canada. Hopefully, you’ve already purchased from Inkk, but if not, you should check out the website. You can make a custom nail lacquer ,and you can also purchase one, in addition to Flourish, from the House of Inkk Collection.

I wanted to wear my Christmas Nail Art manicure for more than a few days, so in the photos I have used two coats of Flourish, and a top coat on all of my nails. However, I do want to mention that Inkk Nail Lacquers are very glossy prior to using a top coat.

Last week, I included a quote about using the best technique to make sure you have a beautiful looking manicure for more than just a day or two. After each layer, before you add a top coat, make sure that each and every layer is dry!

Do you have any questions about Inkk that I haven’t answered in any of my previous reviews? If so, you can either leave it after the post, or ask your questions directly to Inkk on Facebook or Twitter. Ashley Morgan is the Creator and President of Inkk.

Canadian Flag Nail Art with Inkk Nail Lacquer

Canadian Flag Nail Art

I promise that my Canadian Flag Nail Art has nothing to do with the recent United States Presidential Election. In fact, the Canada Red shade was customized by Ashley Morgan, the Creator and President of Inkk, before the election.

Knowing that Inkk Nail Lacquers hail from Canada (alhough they are made in the United States), I thought it would be a nice tribute to the company to do Canadian Flag Nail Art. However, I wasn’t sure which red from Inkk would be best. Although you see a variety of shades of red when you to a search for Canadian Flag Nail Art, the Inkk Canada Red Nail Lacquer is the correct one.

So, what’s the magic behind Ashley creating the exact red shade for the Canadian flag? She matched the red from the actual Canadian flag by using the tools on the Inkk website! Ashley downloaded a picture of the flag, loaded it into the Create Lacquers area of yourinkk.com, and clicked the red color inside the flag. Then, she named the color and ordered it for me to try. Yes, it’s that easy for anyone wishing to create a custom color. Here’s a link to the post where I created my own Moxie shade!

I love the red shade, and knew that others would, too! Hence the Canadian Flag Nail Art post.

I was thinking of what I would wear if I were to take a trip to Canada.  It’s cold and snowing where I live (in Massachusetts). Therefore, pretty much what I’m wearing here, like nice warm, cozy sweaters, and mittens, I could just quickly pack in a suitcase, and head on over there.

No matter is you design your shade, or choose one from Inkk, it’s of course, the same quality; it’s easy to apply, and although you should wear a top coat for a lasting manicure, the Inkk shades are glossy without one.

The gorgeous 18ml bottles are 5-Free (of harmful chemicals), vegan, and cruelty free. I love that Inkk Nail Lacquers look as beautiful in the bottle, as on my nails! If you design a custom color, your package will be gold, just like the Inkk octopus tail on the bottle.  If you select one of the shades from the House of Inkk Collection the tail is silver, as is the package that it will arrive in.  canadian nail art

If you haven’t read any of my many past reviews, or purchased Inkk Nail Lacquer yet, you should know that Inkk is such an innovative nail polish brand. Inkk has cruelty free and vegan nail polishes that are five-free. Customers have the ability to make a custom nail lacquer, as the Canada Red for my Canadian flag nail art was, or to purchase one of the many that are on the website from the House of Inkk Collection. Many have specialized finishes, and be sure to order early, as there are also some limited edition collections!

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer Review and Photos

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer is another cruelty free and vegan nail polish that I received from Inkk’s new Winter Arctic Collection. There are five colors in this limited edition collection, and they are now available for purchase on the Inkk website.

 Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer

Ashley Morgan is the talented Creator and President of Inkk, and in a previous interview she said that she, “…wanted to capture the feeling of winter, arctic and chill, and steer away from traditional Holiday colors like red, green, and orange….Ashley also, “wanted to have a variety of light and dark and choose colors that represent winter as well as wear well with other colors (for fashion).

Inkk Arctic Glacier Nail Lacquer

The photos in this post include one shade from the Winter Arctic Collection: the beautiful Arctic Glacier; and there is Desert Treasures, one of the lovely House of Inkk’s shades. The third nail lacquer that I used was Francesca, from the Canto Inferno Collection. Canto Inferno was the very first collection from Inkk. It represents what the House of Inkk believes in: stories told in color and communication in color.

Shown below are the bottles of the shades that I used. I love the beauty of the design, which so elegantly captures the name Inkk, from an octopus inking.  Each bottle holds a large amount of polish: 18ml.

I was thinking that the best way for me to describe Inkk Arctic Glacier was a dark teal. But, it’s much more complex and beautiful than just that. I came across a photo on Instagram, and I thought it perfectly captured the mood. It looks cold, could be winter, and it’s beautiful. Maybe there’s an octopus in that section of the sea!

I hope that you’ve had a chance to read about this newish (2013) cruelty free and vegan nail polish brand that is five-free of the chemicals Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor. 

Inkk Arctic Glacier is easy to work with, and even when I was exhausted but had to keep redoing my nail art, every single time the polish applied easily, and gave a beautiful, smooth appearance. Although I always recommend you add a top coat, it is shiny without one. If you don’t like the shades that are on the website, then it’s very easy, and a lot of fun, to create your own shade.

Here’s the link to check out the website and either make your own shade, or purchase one of the many Inkk Lacquers.

The only downside is that Inkk Arctic Glacier is one of the five shades in the limited edition Winter Arctic Collection.
