July 4th Nail Art with Milani Nail Lacquer

July 4th Nail Art with Milani Nail Lacquer

I’ve looked at so many nail art designs, so here’s my cruelty free take on a July 4th Nail Art with Milani Lacquer. Milani Lacquer is, and always has been, cruelty free! The design is based on what I saw that Broadway Nail, imPRESS manicure, had for a design. You can look it up, since I’m not sure I’m “allowed” to show it due to copyright issues.

A bit of history about Milani Cosmetics:

Milani Cosmetics has amazing quality for a very fair price. I love that I can quickly pick up their beauty products at my local drugstores. In addition to nail polish, they have products for your eyes, lips and face.

“You’ll find yourself in Milani Cosmetics. The very best version of you.”


Disclosure: Purchased the polish myself.  All links are for your convenience only.

Skull and Spikes Nail Art Deborah Lippmann

Skull and Spikes Nail Art

Today’s Monday Manicure is a skull and spikes nail art using Deborah Lippmann nail polish.  Of course, the skull and spikes nail art is using a brand of polish that is cruelty free! Deborah Lippmann is 5-free, which means that there are none of the chemicals commonly found in nail polish: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene; in addition, there is also no formaldehyde resin and camphor!

The black shade of polish that I used for the skull and spikes nail art is Fade to Black, a great classic black that I love because, as advertised, it is definitely, “as elegant as it is edgy.” The two reds that I used are Lady is a Tramp, and Ruby Red Slippers, the glitter topper, which it seems like I’ve have had in my collection forever!

The Fade to Black, looks like your typical black in the bottle. You can try it and see if I’m imagining that it is slightly different from all the other black shades that I have.

Except for my ring finger, I used a top coat on all my nails. So, the black is really as shiny as van be, without the extra step!

ZOYA Nail Art & Review for a Mystery Box!


I used Zoya, a cruelty free and vegan nail polish for my Monday manicure. I purchased a “mystery trio box” from Zoya; so all I knew was that there would be three mini bottles of nail polish, and would feature “never before seen or sold color.” There would also be a surprise included. More on that later in the post.

I was a little nervous, but figured that it would be a good challenge to try to quickly figure out what to do for nail art–whether I liked the shades–or not! Fortunately, Zoya knew what they were doing, and packed three beautiful shades that I had no trouble using together. If you’ve ever read my blog, you know that I was extra happy since my favorite shade is purple!


From left to right are: Violet, Marion, and Temperance. As advertised, these shades have never been released!


Let me back it up just a bit. I want you to see how the outer shipping box arrived. Although it was ridiculously crushed, the polish was packed so well, there was no damaage at all! Thank you to ZOYA for knowing how to pack in case of a disaster–like mine!
