Sally Hansen HD Spectrum + Milani Hot Metal + PETA news

My first HD from my swap with Karen

Decided I hadn't done a blue in ever so long
Now there's a tale to tell with this one. Make yourself comfy.
2/3 coats and there's VNL about which I don't stress.
The polish does migrate rather on the nail as if seeking asylum in the UK so one does rather have to chase it around to pin it down and even then some bald patches persist.
Consequently the middle finger had a 3rd application and I might add more coats to the others.
HOWEVER it is a delightful polish. I thought it would be a foil judging by the contents but it's a very delicate glitter, rather hard to categorise.
On to the index. That was 2/3 coats of HD DVD and that really was almost as thin as Kate Moss after a detox so I added a coat of Milani Hot Metal.

Some big names here. With OPI you've got most colours and finishes covered. So you can build a big collection of polish comprised solely of animal-friendly polishes.

I decided there was so much information out there, some of it conflicting, that I'd have to put my faith in a single authoritative source for my own sanity. PETA should be a pretty discriminating organisation so I'll trust their findings. If PETA sanction a company's output then I'm convinced. It remains now for me to discover more about these lesser-known manufacturers because I do seek out the more obscure brands anyway.

What else should I be doing in the cause of animal-welfare?



  1. Kate Moss after a detox - lol!

  2. Love purple and blue together almost as much as I enjoyed the KM reference!
    Keep the animal friendly references coming, Jen!

  3. OK, folks.
    I'll get to my various tasks with all the determination of a Katie Price looking for a new fella. Nothing will stand in my way.

  4. I love the finish of these!

  5. They feel so smooth. Not gritty at all. Thinner than I thought - the HD that is. But the Milani is a WOW.

  6. Love how the colors look!
    Thanks a lot on the PETA update! It is stupid when they test on animals things like nail polishes!Let alone cruel!

  7. Love that teal with the purple together! Two gorgeous jewel tones!
