Cruelty Free Cosmetics: China One Step Closer

Cruelty Free Cosmetics and China

China Just Took One Step Closer to Ending Animal Testing of Cosmetics

Exciting news just out – China has removed its legal requirement for animal testing for ‘ordinary’ cosmetics made and sold domestically. As many of you are aware, China is one of the few countries in the world where cosmetics animal testing is legally mandated. So this rule change is a really significant development. But it’s complicated too, so Wendy Higgins from Humane Society International’s Be Cruelty Free campaign helped me to understand. HSI has been working in China for more than a year to make this happen.

ncLA Nail Polish – LA Collection

NCLA Nail Polish – LA Collection

I previously reviewed another NCLA LA Collection, so here is a second post on the colors that were not included: Venice Beach Vixen and Hollywood Hills Hot Number.

NCLA Nail Lacquer/Moxie Reviews

NCLA Nail Polish was started in Los Angeles, California, by its founder, Elin Dannerstedt, in February of 2011. The inspiration for NCLA Nail Polish comes from runway fashion and Los Angeles’ unique culture. Wearing NCLA Nail Polish means that you can have fashion at your fingertips, on your fingertips!

NCLA has do-it-yourself nail wraps and a line of lacquers. The LA Collection has 18, 5-free, LA inspired shades. All of the nail lacquers are 100% free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, and Camphor. They state that they are, “Never tested on animals. Ever.”

Here is how the four nail polishes arrived:

 The first nail polish to review is Venice Beach VixenI would agree that their “electric blue crème kicks ass!”

I used only one coat of Venice Beach Vixen. It applied smooth and covered well; very pigmented. I know that if I applied two coats, it would have been perfect, but I thought it would be interesting to show what it would like if someone was rushed for time and just wanted to get a quick manicure done.

The next polish is Hollywood Hills Hot Number:





“Sparkle like a disco ball!”  This is a large flake multi color glitter that is really beautiful whether you are indoors or out. I liked this lacquer, and felt that with the multi color glitter, simply wearing it over a bare nail was very attractive! I needed two coats of this polish to distribute the glitter evenly over each nail. This polish, can be used over an NCLA nail wrap, or over another polish of your choice. Love that this is a very versatile polish!

NCLA Nail Lacquers

I like the square-shaped glass bottles. The cap is well designed so that it was easy to hold while applying polish. The NCLA polishes were very easy to apply, and touch-ups needed only to the tips after 4-5 days. I thought they were excellent quality polishes, and I would highly recommend.
