Cruelty Free: Pretty Woman NYC
Pretty Woman NYC is my current favorite nail polish brand.
I happened upon a bottle of this polish in the shade "I Can't Deal" and what stood out the most was seeing "vegan" on the bottle. So I did some more research into the brand and was pleasantly surprised.
Pretty Woman NYC polishes, as stated on their website, are:
SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
"10 Free" means this polish is free of 10 potentially dangerous and toxic chemicals, like formaldehyde, toluene, and camphor - things you definitely don't want on your body. These chemicals can get into our bodies and affect our nervous system, reproductive system, or even lead to cancers.
Parabens are preservatives used in many products for years, that have recently been linked to breast cancer, according to some researchers. Parabens, Phthalates and Tricolsan are all chemicals that can disrupt hormones leading to many health risks. And well, anything derived from petroleum and with the word "chemical" in it is a no good no-brainer.
And of course, no animals were used in the creation or testing process of these polishes!
So, after trying out my sample polish, I fell in LOVE. The color lasted a few days before actually chipping at all like most polishes do. I immediately ordered a few more colors and honestly, you CANNOT beat the price ($7.99 all day, erryday)
There are a few shades in the Ceramic collection that dry in a smooth matte finish. Obviously I ordered Gothmas, because of who I am as a person and I can't get enough.
Throw Sass is also my go to when I don't want to be bleak, because purple is my favorite color and it's so vibrant and perfect for summer. Also, that name exemplifies my personality.
