BlogForBunnies: Nail Art with Milani Nail Polish

BlogForBunnies

BlogForBunnies and BeCrueltyFree will hopefully be trending hashtags this week! I want to live in a world where no animal has to suffer and die for the sake of cosmetics.  The goal seems simple enough, but sadly, it is not so easy! Yes, there has been progress – we now have a full test and sales ban across the European Union, Norway, India, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Israel. There is  legislation being considered in Australia, Brazil, New Zealand, Taiwan and here in the United States of America.  There has even been a little bit of progress in China, where mandatory animal testing was removed for domestically-produced cosmetics.

SANTE Nail Polish Review & Photos

SANTE Nail Polish

SANTE Nail Polish, which is not only cruelty free, but also vegan and gluten free, was sent for review. Every Sante Nail Polish is identified by number, located on the bottom of each 7 mL clear glass bottle. I have No. 01: French Clear, No. 02: French White, No. 15: red, and No. 20, an aubergine black. Here is a photo of all of the available Sante Nail Polish:

Sante Nail Polish

Sante Nail Polish is excellent! I’m not a nail blogger and all of the polish that was sent was easy to work with. They are all, as advertised, very rich in color and very shiny before even applying a top coat. The polish is quick to dry, and lasted several days without having any chips. Sante points out that while their nail polish is not water based, (it’s a solvent base), it is made without Dibutyl Pthalate, Toluene and Formaldehyde, colophony (rosin), synthetic preservatives, and synthetic fragrances.

Cruelty Free Loose Glitter Nail Art Tutorial

Loose Glitter Nail Art Tutorial

A loose glitter nail art tutorial using only cruelty free products? That was my hope, but I had no idea how to do that, and exactly what cruelty free products I should even purchase; so I headed to Sally Beauty to get the supplies. After explaining what I wanted to accomplish, I was not only shown all the materials I needed, but I also received a tutorial from my new best friend, Christina A., a Certified Cosmetologist,

  Loose Glitter Nail Art Tutorial

Step 1: Apply any Sally Girl pink nail polish color to the whole nail. Make sure to let your nails dry!

Step 2: Use tape, or freehand, to create a french tip in a black nail polish color. Use any cruelty free black (this one in the photo was FingerPaints in Black Expressionism).

Step 3: Make sure to let the nail polish dry completely.

Step 4: Apply a clear coat of nail polish across the edge of the black line, and then before it dries…

Step 5: Roll it in the loose glitter of your choice. That’s so the glitter sticks to the polish! Now let dry.
