Adesse New York Smoothing Base Coat Review

Adesse New York Smoothing Base Coat

Adesse New York Smoothing Base Coat is yet another terrific addition to the cruelty free and vegan nail polish line! The Smoothing Base Coat, like everything else in the Adesse New York line is “5 Free,” meaning it does not have Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor. It’s going to sound like I’m writing about makeup when I describe this nail treatment; that’s because the Smoothing Base Coat is a real multi-tasker.

Ice Cream Cone Nail Art with ciaté London

Ice Cream Cone Nail Art with ciaté London

A few days ago I started thinking about creating ice cream cone nail art using ciaté London. While I was experimenting with the shades that I had, I realized that since ciaté is not only cruelty free, but also vegan, many of my readers would be making or ordering sorbet. How about ice cream cone nail art with raspberry sorbet in the cone? Given the weather that we’re having here in the northeast, it would be just perfect for a summer treat! This is my first attempt at this.

Raspberry Wink is a gorgeous glitter that was sent for possible review from Adesse New York! You are going to love the cruelty free and vegan nail polish swatches! I previously wrote about other custom made collection shades:  Jacqueline and Grand Central and Carnivalesque and Carmen.

You will see three of the shades from Adesse New York: Raspberry Wink, Jacqueline, and Carmen. They all work together really beautifully!

Adesse New York is “5 Free,” which means that the nail lacquers do not contain Toulene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor. In addition, there are no parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMO’s,  or triclosan!

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:

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

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!

Skull and Spikes Nail Art

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!
