I know I keep coming back to nail varnish on here at the minute but since I stopped biting away at my stubby little fingertips I just can't get enough of the stuff! I've never experienced what it's like to have long pretty looking nails before so I'm making the most of every second just in case my bad habit decides to kick in again.
My parents ever so kindly picked this up for me while they were enjoying themselves at the Edinburgh Festival last week as they stumbled upon a lovely little 'green' type shop selling all kinds of natural goodies. Knowing my stance on animal testing, they thoughtfully bought this Beauty Without Cruelty nail colour for me and I was so pleased when they gave it to me! I haven't got round to ordering myself anything from there yet so it was such a good surprise.
The colour itself is a really gorgeous pearly lilac shade and is something that I feel would suit everyone. It's great for everyday wear and certainly isn't too 'out there' or anything like that, yet still makes a lovely noticeable difference to the nails. The wear time I would say is average, I've had it on for four or five days now with a top coat and the chips are becoming significant enough for me to have to remove it, but I would say that's pretty reasonable for a nail polish.
The nail colours are priced at £7.99 which does seem pretty steep in my opinion, but if you have to pay a little bit more to get good quality products that aren't tested on animals then I am certainly more than happy to do that. I mean hey, I'd choose a clear conscience over pretty nails any day.. well, most days.. kidding!
