some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.

How? the term '๐šŒ๐š›๐šž๐šŽ๐š•๐š๐šข-๐š๐š›๐šŽ๐šŽ' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š—' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)
.
๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ๐“ฎ: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.

Clubhouse Cocktails – NCLA Country Club Nail Polish Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

Happy Monday! For this week’s Vegan Mani Monday, I’m sharing and reviewing another color from NCLA’s Country Club Collection called Clubhouse Cocktails.

Clubhouse Cocktails – NCLA

Color: Clubhouse Cocktails is described as a dark lavender cream nail polish color.

Price: $16 on nclabeauty.com

Formula: Opaque and full coverage in two coats. Very smooth and good formula with an easy application. Non-streaky. The applicator brush is the same as Tennis Anyone? where it’s much wider than all the other NCLA nail polishes I’ve tried in the past.

Wear Test: lasted 3-4 days without chipping.

Comments: Love this color! It’s like a pastel purple-bluish color. I love my pastel nail polishes and because of how opaque and easy Clubhouse Cocktails was to apply to my nails with its very smooth formula and wider applicator brush, I’ll definitely be wearing this often during the Summer!

All of NCLA nail polishes are proudly made with love in California, 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and 7-Free meaning they donโ€™t contain Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, Camphor, TPHP, or Xylene.

Ingredients: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Acrylates Copolymer, Stearalkonium Bentonite, n-Butyl Alcohol, Benzophenone-1, Silica, Alumina, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Polyvinyl Butyral, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Polybutylene Terephthalate, Ethylene/VA Copolymer MAY CONTAIN (+/-) : Aluminum Powder (CI 77000), Iron Oxides (CI 77499 / CI 77491), Red 34 Lake(CI 15880), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Mica (CI 77019), Blue 1 (CI 42090), Yellow 11 (CI 47000), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Violet 2 (CI 60725), Zinc Sulfide
