As you all know, I’ve been on a natural nail kick lately! I quit gel and completely revamped my nail care routine (read about it here). I’ve been using a ton of new products and I have been so, SO happy with the results. I’m much more aware of the chemicals in my polishes, and while I can’t say I plan to toss every bottle that’s not up to par, I have been more likely to reach for the “good” stuff.
When I was given the opportunity to try Bella Lacquer, I couldn’t pass! First off, it has my NAME ON IT! I kind of makes me feel like I have my own line of polish (#goals)…well not really, but I can pretend haha! 😉 Second, this company is so stand up. The way they create, test, and produce their products is admirable. Not to mention, their polish is absolutely phenomenal!
A quick rundown on this line… “Bella is more than a vegan, eco-friendly nail polish. It’s a lifestyle in a bottle! We’re about femininity, self-empowerment and self-awareness, so these themes are interwoven into everything we do- especially our name. We believe that life is beautiful, and if you live unapologetically with ambition, passion and vigor, Bella Lacquer is the lifestyle for you.”
Bella Lacquer is based in LA and their products are made…cruelty free… in the USA! Their formula is eco-friendly, vegan, and free of the 5 most toxic chemical ingredients found in most polishes; formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate (DPB), toluene, and camphor. They’re even certified by PETA! If that doesn’t convince you that they are the real deal, I’m not sure what will!
They currently sell 13 gorgeous, long-lasting, chip-resistant, high-shine, gel-like polishes and today I’m swatching four of them! Take a peek at these beauties! 🙂
Okay, first things first…do these polishes not have the sassiest names? I adore them! I always thought that naming nail polishes would be so much fun. I think it’s safe to say that the ladies/gents behind the scenes definitely had a good time doing so with these!
Onto the formula! W-O-W! Sometimes I’m weary about the more “natural polishes”, but these all apply so even, so creamy, streak-free, and with serious shine! For reference, I did not top my swatches with a base coat, so what you see is what you get! For the long-wearing/chip-free claims, I can’t say that I noticed a significant difference. I am super cautious and take very good care of my nails on a daily basis, so my chip-level is probably lower than most, but I didn’t notice any accelerated chipping…if that helps!
Overall, I have to give Bella Lacquer an A+! I love the packaging, I love the formula, I love that they’re 5-free, I love what the brand represents, I love that they’re active & responsive on social media (always a plus for me)…and obviously… I love the name! 😉
If you’re looking to treat your nails to healthier polishes, I highly recommend this line.
