Animal testing for cosmetics is STILL happening as we go into 2020! πŸ’‰πŸ Neither the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission *require* animal testing for cosmetics or household products. There are sufficient existing safety data as well as in vitro alternatives to make animal testing for these products obsolete. (Source: Leaping Bunny)
Therefore it is up to brands and ingredient suppliers to ensure no new animal tests occur during any stage of product development and manufacturing.
Vote with your consumer dollars by choosing to only buy from cruelty-free brands in 2020! ✊🏻 Let’s continue to fight to see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics! ✨

Looking for a stylish vegan winter coat to keep you warm this season? ❄️ Here are some ethical vegan outerwear labels! 🌿 From vegan puffers, parkas, bombers, vests, coats, and jackets for men, women, and kids! πŸ§₯✨
What to look out for in an ethical + vegan winter coat:
❄️ Avoid coats filled with down and animal feathers -- instead, these vegan labels use recycled polyester that are made from used bottles and post-consumer recycled content. They're also warmer, lighter, and more breathable than goose-down!
❄️ Read the label to see if the fur-trim is animal-derived or not. -- Don't just assume it's faux fur, it only takes two seconds to check to be sure!
❄️ Ethically-made -- If the price is too good to be true, it probably is. Support vegan labels that care about the people making their clothes just as much as they do about the animals! Are their workers treated fairly, under safe conditions, and paid a living wage?
❄️ Made to Last -- Avoid shopping for a cheap winter coat just to wear a handful of times and to be replaced next year. Choose quality outerwear made with durable materials that were made to last, and even better, check to see if it comes with a warranty! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
Do you already have a vegan winter coat? Let us know if it's from one of these brands and/or where you got it from! πŸ’•

Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Gel Nail Polish

Posted on
This post may contain affiliate links.

If you want your nail polish or manicure to last longer than a week without chipping, then I highly recommend giving gel nail polish a try!

You can get gel nails done at the nail salon by a professional or you can simply do them yourself at home. All you need is an LED or UV lamp which you can find plenty on Amazon.

Gel polish (also known as soak off gel polish) is a special type of nail polish that hardens under the LED/UV lamp, you apply them just like regular nail polish but cure them under the lamp in between coats. The only downside with gel polish is the removal process which does require you to soak them in acetone or nail polish remover for several minutes.

    Not sure where you get your info from but Orly for one is not Leaping Bunny certified?

      I don’t recall suggesting ORLY was Leaping Bunny certified. I verify and reach out to each and every cruelty-free brand myself to ensure they don’t test on animals during any stage of product development and manufacturing.

      It would be nice if all brands are Leaping Bunny certified but just because they’re not, doesn’t mean they aren’t cruelty-free. Leaping Bunny is a voluntary registration process.

      If you only choose to support and buy from Leaping Bunny certified brands then you might like Dimension Nails, Madam Glam, and NCLA. These 3 gel nail polish brands are Leaping Bunny certified.

        Yes but you did state that they are cruelty free. A lot of companies lie about their cruelty free status. They claim they are cruelty free because”this product has not been tested on animals” = but the raw ingredients have. β€œWe do not test on animals” = but we pay others to do ok our behalf. Leaping bunny audit the companies to ensure that they are genuinely cruelty free. Peta allow companies to self certify. Which again to my mind is meaningless. Personally, I only regard a company as genuinely cruelty free if they are Leaping Bunny certified

          Sorry,just read some of your other posts! If they are genuinely cruelty free, why do they not go for Leaping Bunny status as there’s only a (one-off) charge if they choose to use the logo.
          I’m just suspicious of comapanies who claim to be cruelty free but who don’t get certificated. Why would they not opt to?

      Hey Tracey,
      I just checked essence’s website and they have a gel-like nail polish but it doesn’t require a lamp or curing so it’s a great alternative for people who don’t want to use a lamp to cure their nails. I’d love to know how long they last though. Have you tried them before? =)

    Thanks for the information! Do you know if there are any dip powder brands that are cruelty and vegan?
