PRITI NYC – Empress Tree

Idag tänkte jag visa er “Empress Tree” från PRITI NYC. Det här är en väldigt krämig pastellig lila ton. Jag brukar inte tycka om lila i nagellack, men det här lacket drog lite åt det rosa och grå hållet, sååå fint! 🙂

Nagellacket var väldigt lättmålat även om det var tjockt och täckte helt efter två lager. Det torkade även lagom snabbt; ; vill man att det ska torka ännu snabbare kan man använda fast drops eller liknande produkter  (jag använde dock inget sådant nu)! Fin kvalitet! <3

Det kostade 149 kr. Här kan ni se var det går att köpa/beställa PRITI NYC i Sverige.

Today I’m gonna show you the polish “Emptress Tree” by PRITI NYC. This is a very creamy pastel puprle shade. I usually don’t like purple in nail polishes, but this shade had a little bit of pink and grey in it, really lovely! 🙂

The polish was very easy to apply even though it was thick and I achieved full coverage after two coats. The drying time was also good; if you want it to dry faster you can use fast drops or similar products (I didn’t use it)! Great quality! <3

Barry M – Gelly Nail Paint – Blue Grape

Väldigt snyggt kornblått nagellack! 😀
Det torkar snabbt och är lätt att applicera. Här har jag använt två lager!

A gorgeous blue nail polish! 😀
It dries fast and is easily applied. I’ve used two coats of it here!

You can order it here if you live in Sweden!

 

Barry M – Mermaid

Åh, det här nagellacket är magiskt! <3 Superfina stora glitter i havets färger!
Det behövs ett toplack på det här nagellacket för att det ska bli mer jämnt! Nedan har jag använt tre lager av nagellacket och ett toplack ovanpå!

Det både torkar snabbt och är lätt att applicera.

Det kostade 49 kr och kan beställas här!

Wow, this nail polish is pure magic! <3 Lovely big glitter pieces in turquoise, blues and silver!
You’ll need a top coat to get an even look because of the glitter. In the picture I’ve used three coats of nail polish and a top coat!

This polish is easily applied and the drying time is good.

You can order it here if you live in Sweden!

Mavala – selling in China!

Idag fick jag reda på att Mavala säljer sina produkter i Kina, efter att jag mejlat dem och tänkt kolla deras policy igen. Det första svaret jag fick var:

We thank you for your e-mail and for your interest in MAVALA products.

We can assure you that we do not perform any animal tests. And we chose our suppliers which comply with European Legislation that prohibits animal testing on ingredients.
This policy is valid for all countries in which Mavala is commercialised.

Our nail polishes (bases, colored nail polishes and top coats) do not contain any animal derived ingredient.

Concerning the other products of our brand, most of them are also free from animal derived ingredients.

The only animal-derived ingredients present in our nail care products are :

Please be informed that extractions of these raw materials are « cruelty free » for animals.

We hope to have answered you satisfactorily but remain at your disposal for any further information.

I det andra mejlet  fick jag en kontakt för distributören i Hong Kong/Kina, där det krävs att man testar skönhetsprodukter på djur. Ett exempel på att EU-lagen om att inte testa på djur inte riktigt når fram hela vägen. Man måste med andra ord ställa rätt frågor för att få fram hela sanningen. Illa! Så, hej då Mavala.

Om ni vill ha högkvalitativa nagellack som är djurvänliga finns det flera andra märken, som t.ex. Zoya, Nubar eller Sparitual.

Today I found out that Mavala sell their products in China, after sending them an email and wanting to check out their policies. This is the first answer I got:

In the second email I also got the contact for their  distributor in Hong Kong/China where it’s required by law to test beauty products on animals. An example of the EU law (of not testing beauty products on animals) not really going all the way. In other words, you have to ask the right questions to get all the answers you want. So, bye bye Mavala.

If you want high quality nail polishes that are kind to animals, there are other brands such as Zoya, Nubar or Sparitual.
