Chanel May is a bit darker--it is a light to medium bubblegum pink. The formula is nice, but the color isn't anything unique. Are Jessica polishes vegan? I saw that they duped the Chanel spring colors.

Glad you tried the color and didn't find out after ordering. I really love the coco shines. I've been wearing Flirt almost exclusively since April. I want another dozen or so! I'll probably buy one for fall in November.


The Coco Shine formula is beyond divine!

CND Shellac is vegan, right? I was checking out there layering PDFs. I'm hesitant though because I don't want to damage my nails.

I think Strawberry Smoothie + Romantique or Studio White + Beau might be close? Maybe Strawberry Smoothie + Studio White?

CND Shellac is vegan and it doesn't damage your nails! It is just polish that is cured and if you get it done at a proper place that uses the full CND range and follow the correct aftercare it can help strengthen your nails.

I'm wearing Models Own's Utopia. It's such a pretty colour. My nails are crepe and I've filed them short so I googled for a pic. I can't find one that's really that true to the colour. They are all looking a bit brown, this is the nearest but it has almost a hint of lilac in it too. It's lovely.

If you bring the current Seventeen in to Ulta and show them - you get to pick a mini Orly polish for free. I got a metallic blue today....

FYI-finally got a response from Lane Bryant via Twitter regarding whether their cacique nail polish is cruelty free and vegan:

@lanebryant - Sorry for the delay. The nail color is cruelty-free and vegan. Thank you. #lanebryant

It's succinct.

Just wanted to share in case people miss my post about this, but Revlon have been moved off of the Peta do not test list onto their do test list because they've been unresponsive on whether they're testing in China or now. Revlon bought Sinful Colors in March of 2011.

Peta have a letter you can sign and send to Revlon asking them to disclose whether they're testing or not.

Trying to quell my Revlon rage, it's not working. But I am totally loving the mani I did for the 4th.
2 coats of WnW Break The Ice w/ LA Girl Glitter Addict in Celebrate over it. My nails look like shimmering paint spattered canvases.
Break The Ice is SO gorgeous I almost left it bare even though I planned the glitter. It reminds me of Zoya's Ginessa.

Annoying about Revlon but I only had one of their polishes and I don't think they sell Sinful over here.

I painted mine last night with Nubar's Verde. It's really lovely, the pic washes it out because it's darker in real life. I was trying to capture the lovely goldy shimmer it has but didn't do a great job of that. Sorry for the crepe polish job - I hadn't cleaned up when I took the pic.

I love it so much too!

Probably going to do a mani with CG Foie Gras today, haven't used it yet! Can't do pedis right now since I can't reach my left foot.

I had the new Fergie for WnW gold black glitter on...Then tried out the Julep 4th of July polish that came on July 6th to me...I am kinda bummed that this color did not come sooner.

baps, I am so super jealous that you can walk into a store and buy Models Own. I can order from their website, but I have to borrow someone's credit card because my debit card can't be used outside of the US most of the time, including the Models Own site. Or I can order from Harlow & Co but they're always sold out of the good colors.

I daydream often about a trip to England so that I can go into stores and buy Models Own and Barry M (and do you guys get Mavala over there too)?

missmuffcake, did your Julep America polish have accessible silver stars? I saw one peeking out inside my bottle, but I swatched three coats on my nail wheel and didn't see a one.

I managed to get one on the first try. However the points of the stars come up and scratch if you are not careful!

Woah! Mavala is vegan?! If so, that might be the best news yet.

Mavala just recently crossed my radar too. But from what I gather you can only order them online?

I don't have confirmation direct from the company that Mavala is vegan, but multiple websites I've found say they are, and someone in the nail polish brand list on here said so as well. I ordered two Mavala polishes on a whim when I placed a Beauty Bay order for Nails Inc Jubilee, and I like the Mavala polishes a lot, They're tiny, but the bottles are cute, the colors are cool, and the formula is good.

Cool. Mavala is a brand I can actually find easily. I've always thought they were animal tested, though. I just found a Swedish vegan beauty blog and she had e-mail confirmation that they are indeed vegan. Also Depend (who I was going to e-mail, but haven't gotten around to). I've also learned of a cheap vegan eyeliner I can actually find in a shop so: hurray!

I gave up painting my nails about a decade ago cuz I figured it was just unnecessary chemicals (& I'm just generally a super low maintenance person who can't be bothered). Well today while decluttering in prep for a move I found some purple nail polish I'd gotten as a donated gift through the last nonprofit I worked at and was suddenly seized with the desire to paint my toenails.

Now I have dark purple toenails and every time I look down I'm like whoa! Whoa! I have purple toes! haha

I also found a crystal toe ring. It is pretty awesome. I need to take a pic but my phone is charging.

Tomorrow I'm going blueberry picking and the color is pretty similar so I figure it is appropriate for the occasion.

Depend are vegan? That's awesome, I've seen them on blogs, and have no way I know of to get them in the US, but more brands are always good.

I went to Macy's & Sephora today, tried on polishes but walked away with 0. I feel as though I should use the 5 new ones I got last week before buying more.

The site I found indicated that they are (their own website states that they don't test products or ingredients on animals). I just e-mailed them about animal ingredients and also toluene etc. Hopefully I'll have an answer soon (but it's vacationtime over here so it might take a while).
