Save the earth, go vegan! 
I just finished watching ‘Cowspiracy’, you should check it out if you haven’t before. It’s time for humans to step up!

Vegan house paint!

In case anyone is wondering, Benjamin Moore is animal/vegan friendly! From my email exchange (4/25/16): 

Q: I am writing to ask about your animal testing policy. Do you test your paints or do you have third party testing?

I am also wondering if your paints all have animal products as an ingredient, or if you have any that are animal-free. If you do, which ones?

Thank you so much!

A: All of our product lines are free from animal testing and animal ingredients. We also do not have any animal testing by a third parties.

Pregnancy Safe Nail Polishes

If you love your mani-pedi and don’t want to take any chances, then here are some great pregnancy safe polishes to try.

They say it’s safe to paint your nails every now and then during pregnancy, but you can never be too sure! It’s always good to take extra precaution for your baby’s health as most nail polishes contain chemicals that irritate your eyes, nose, throat and lungs just by breathing it in.

1. Knocked Up Nails: They have 21 shades that are all free of the 5 main polish chemicals, including formaldehyde, toluene, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate and camphor. The names are pretty unforgettable too—”O-blue-GYN” and “Red-E or Not, Here Comes Baby.” Haha.

2. Scotch Naturals: each shade is 100% free from formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalates, ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, nitrocellulose, acetone and heavy metals.

3. Acquarella Nail Polish: This polish is free of animal testing, vegan, non-toxic, and safe for use during pregnancy. It’s also said to helps hydrate your nails for less chipping.

i hate that cruelty-free and vegan are used as two separate terms. seeing things marketed as cruelty-free while containing animal products is so unbelievably ridiculous.

living beings were killed and exploited for this but don’t worry!!! the final product wasn’t tested on them, so it’s still “cruelty-free”!!!
