Halloween Nails with Vegan & Cruelty Free Polish

Halloween Nails with Vegan & Cruelty Free Polish

You can check out my other post with Halloween Nail Art; this one is Halloween Nails with vegan & cruelty free polish. I wanted my nails to have only vegan nail polish, but one of my favorite drug store brands is “just” cruelty free. Obviously, when you do your own nails, you can decide for yourself, but while all the readers of my blog (I hope) use only cruelty free products, not everyone is a vegan.

Keep reading and I’ll give you all the details of both the polish and whether they are vegan, in addition to being cruelty free.

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.”

Memorial Day Nail Art 2015

Today is Memorial Day in the United States, and as Time pointed out, “It’s easy to forget what Memorial Day actually means while you’re sitting by the pool and looking ahead at summer vacation—but the day signifies much more than just a three-day weekend.” So please, remember all those who have died while serving in the United States armed forces!

After looking at lots of gorgeous photos, I have chosen one of my favorites, (see below), to try my own Memorial Day Nail Art. Here is the link to Manic Talons.

Memorial Day Nail Art

For my Memorial Day nail art, I used all cruelty free nail polish from Milani.

I used Milani Red Label (40), Blue Print (26), and Spotlight White (28) for the Memorial Day nail art.

Clearly, my nail art is not as professional looking as that of Manic Talons. I’ll work on it!

Milani Nail Lacquer Fantastical Plumage Review & Photos

Milani has launched two new limited edition nail polish collections, and in yesterday’s post I featured one: Retro Glam.   Today is the second limited edition collection: the Milani Nail Lacquer Fantastical Plumage. Both collections will be available at some CVS and Meijer stores during the month of August. If you can’t find them in the stores, both limited edition collections will be available in August online at Milani Cosmetics.

Thoughts on Milani Nail Lacquer Fantastical Plumage

This is a beautiful collection with all photos showing two coats of polish on my nails and topped with Carnival.  I’m not sure if it was my lack of experience, but unlike Sprinkles, from the Retro Glam Collection, Carnival wasn’t as easy to work with. I had to really work to get a good mixture on my nails, and quite often it was a bit of a challenge to get a nice selection without it coming out looking like a blob.  I would recommend Sprinkles instead of buying Carnival.

All the colors in the Fantastical Plumage Collection are very pigmented and easy to work with; and I found they dried quickly between coats. Amazing nail lacquer and so reasonably priced at $5.99. However, remember, Fantastical Plumage is a Limited Edition, so don’t wait too long to purchase!
