Inglot Azure Collection Nail Enamel 983

Another Inglot Nail Enamel! This one is from the Azure Collection, which features 11 nail enamels. Looking at the nail enamels in numerical order, they progress from grey to green to blue. Each polish has tones from the color before it and after it. The finish is very glossy – you can definitely see the difference compared to the matte collection polishes. Like the matte collection, the formula is non-streaky and applies smoothly.

I saw on the Inglot USA site they’ve just released a new collection (it doesn’t have any other name listed) that looks really interesting. It’s five metallic shades – two silver tones, two gold tones, and one copper rose gold tone. Of course, it’s hard to tell from the site exactly what the colors look like, so I’ll have to wait to see real swatches.

Have you tried any Inglot Nail Enamels? What do you think of their Azure and “new” collections?



Bubblegum Peach: Inglot Nail Enamel 718

The second of my Inglot Nail Enamels is 718, also from the Matte Collection. Feel free to check out my post on Inglot Nail Enamel 715 for more about the Matte Collection formula.

718: a mid-tone bubblegum peach-pink. It’s similar in color to Essie’s Van D’Go, but I find application much easier with Inglot’s formula. It’s darker and the slightest bit more pink than Essie’s A Crewed Interest and Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor in Paparazzi Don’t Preach.

Amazing Makeup That’s Still Cruelty-Free: Inglot Nail Polish 715

Ever since I discovered it about a year ago, Inglot has quickly become one of my favorite cosmetic brands. I’m most interested in their face and eye products, but they do have great nail polish. There are multiple polish types – the two I own are from the Matte Collection. The finish of the Matte Collection polishes is actually more like semi-matte. I like the finish – I think it looks modern without being completely flat. If you like the color but prefer more shine, adding a top coat makes the finish more like a standard creme.

The formula is easy to apply and lasts well. It dries faster than any other nail polish I’ve tried. And their shade range… calling it extensive feels like an understatement.

715: an opaque taupe-pink. It’s similar to Essie Topless & Barefoot and Zoya Melodie (without the shimmer). It’s a little like OPI Tickle My France-y but lighter and less brown.

6 Cruelty-Free Nail Polish Favorites

Amazing Makeup That’s Still Cruelty-Free: Nail Polish

I used to wear nail polish non-stop for years.  I remember I was so used to having it on that when I didn’t, my hands would look weird to me!  Last year, my schedule got super busy, and I consciously decided to stop wearing nail polish on my fingers, because I really just didn’t have time to deal with keeping it up. I’d still always paint my toes though (why does polish last triple as long on toes?). Anyway, I’m just starting to get back into wearing it on my fingers regularly. But, because I’d been out of the polish-loop, I wasn’t up-to-date on brands’ testing policies. When I checked into two major brands, OPI and Essie, I found disappointing news.

Up until a year or two ago, both Essie and OPI were cruelty-free, but both have since been bought by parent companies that do test on animals. While I don’t necessarily write off a brand for that reason (I actually want to write a post on that topic), I do err on the side of caution. So until I hear definitive confirmation that OPI and Essie will maintain their no animal testing practices, I won’t be purchasing from them.

Frankly, with brands like Inglot and Zoya as cruelty-free alternatives, I’m definitely not sacrificing quality or selection.

 

So, here are six of my cruelty-free nail polish favorites! I’ll warn you, I’m definitely partial to certain colors for nails.  Light pinks, taupe-y neutrals and nude tones, occasionally red. As much as I love seeing everyone else’s blues and greens, I personally tend to keep it pretty basic.

As with my 7 Top Foundations post (clearly I’m not so great at sticking to the “top 5″ format), reviews are coming soon. I’ll link to them once they’re posted.
