What The F... @wetnwildbeauty?! πŸ˜’ This is why cruelty-free consumers have trust issues!
Incredibly sadden by the news and confirmation that @wetnwildbeauty products are indeed sold in mainland China where animal testing for cosmetics is required by law πŸ’” I have removed Wet N Wild from our cruelty-free directory lists, but please check out @logicalharmony and @crueltyfreekitty's posts for details about the recent news. A summary simply isn’t enough to explain everything that’s been brought to light and how Wet N Wild was caught lying about selling in China πŸ˜‘

Be gentle with yourself on your journey to living and choosing cruelty-free. Know that you'll probably make mistakes along the way and that's OK. Give yourself permission to learn and grow, and to strive for progress, not perfection. It's not a race or competition to see who can be the best cruelty-free consumer, go at your own pace and always remember what you're doing IS making a difference to animals and the planet! πŸ°πŸŒπŸ’•// πŸ“Έ via @fequalshq

Madam Glam (Floris) Vegan Gel Nail Polish Review

Madam Glam Soak-Off Gel Polish - Floris - a bright fuschia pink color.

I’ve been doing Vegan Mani Mondays for the past year now and I have yet to share or review a vegan gel polish but that’s about to change for this week’s mani monday!

I used to love gel nail polish because of how long they last but I stopped wearing them because 1) most gel polish brands are not cruelty-free (like Sally Hansen and OPI) and 2) they take such a long time to remove although they last 2-3 times longer than traditional nail polish. #LazyGirlProblems, am I right?

I got my hands on some cruelty-free and vegan soak-off gel polishes from Madam Glam.

All of Madam Glam nail polishes are Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free and 100% vegan, Madam Glam does not test any of their products or ingredients on animals and all their polishes are free from animal-derived ingredients and by-products. In addition, Madam Glam recently reformulated their polishes and now they claim to be 9-free, meaning their polishes are free from 9 toxic chemicals.

Madam Glam – Floris

For the past week, I tried Floris by Madam Glam. I absolutely love the color and application but because I didn’t have a gel base and top coat to use and my nails weren’t properly prepped (something I figured out after it started lifting/peeling), I’ll have to try Floris again in order to give my comprehensive review of it but I thought it was worth sharing my first impression with you all. I’ll be sure to update this post.

Madam Glam Floris Gel Nail Polish is a raspberry pink with a cream finish.
Madam Glam – Floris

Color: Floris is described as a raspberry pink with a cream finish.

Price: $19.95 (or $9.98 for VIP members) on madamglam.com

Formula: Opaque after 2 coats. Good gel formula and consistency. Easy to apply. Non-streaky.

Wear Test: Because I didn’t properly prep my nails and I didn’t use a gel base or top coat, it started to peel and lift after 6 days. I will try it again and update this post.

Comments: Floris is a beautiful bright fuschia pink color. I used an LED lamp so it only took 30 seconds to cure in between coats. Although I’m a total rookie and I didn’t apply the gel polish according to the instructions, I do like the gel formula and it surprisingly lasted a week without any chipping. If I had used a gel top coat and properly prepped my nails, I’m sure Madam Glam’s gel nail polish would have lasted 7+ days without chipping!

All Madam Glam polishes are cruelty-free, vegan, and 9-free.

Ingredients: Acrylates Copolymer, Ethyl Methacrylate, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Trimethylolpropane Triacrylate, Rthyl Acetate, Dimethicone, Microcrystalline Wax, Mica, CI 77981, CI 77266, CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77019

Where to buy? Available on madamglam.com, some of Madam Glam vegan gel polish are also available on Amazon.

PR or Purchased? In full disclosure, Madam Glam sent me their nail polish to try. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. All opinions expressed are always 100% my own.
