Sienna Byron Bay Vegan Safer Nail Polish
Recently, Sienna Byron Bay sent me down some of their Sienna Bryon Bay Vegan Safer Nail Polish products to trial. After having a great time preening, I can report that these little babies rock!
I especially love their Sticky Base Coat, as normally nail polish is lucky to last out a single day on my nails.
To say I am rough on my hands and nails is an understatement. So any nail product that ticks all the boxes that I require, cruelty free, vegan friendly and free of the most toxic of nail polish ingredients and that can help my nail-polish stay on a little longer, I am more than happy to try.
Sienna Byron Bay are approved by Cruelty Free International and their Leaping Bunny Programme.
The three pretty shades, featured in the image left are; Love (the melon colour), Bliss (the soft mauve) and Breeze (the aquamarine colour).
I have to be honest, so far I have only had a chance to paint my nails with Love (awww!), and I am happy to report, that even one coat gives a full representation of the shade. Apply two coats, and the colour pops!
There was also no streaking, and the polish dried super fast. The Lightning Top Coat also dried incredibly fast and my nail polish stayed on beautifully chip-free, despite my abuse.
Safe, Eco Nail Polishes
What I really love about this company, Sienna Byron Bay, is it’s ethics and commitment to produce a range of vegan, accredited cruelty free, safer and eco-conscious, nail polishes.
Their polishes are free of Benzophenone-1 and most importantly, they are “7 FREE”. Meaning that you will NOT find the following ingredients in Sienna Byron Bay Polishes – Formaldehyde, DBP, Toluene, Synthetic Camphor, Xylene, Formaldehyde Resin and Tosylamide.
Sienna Bryon Bay blend their nail polish shades by hand, and they have more than 50 gorgeous shades to choose from. Where possible they get their ingredients here in Australia, in order to keep their carbon footprint as low as possible.
Even their cute, eco-friendly, wooden tops, are hand-turned and made from non-native trees. The wood they use, comes from trees that have been cleared to help rejuvenate and sustain our native Aussie forests.
Their packaging is made from recycled cardboard and printed with soy inks. Sienna Bryon Bay even produce a nail polish remover that is soy based.
Sienna Byron Bay pride themselves on producing the “cleanest conventional nail polish range”. Yes, there are still synthetic ingredients in their polishes, but to produce a nail polish you have to include them. However this is a cosmetic company striving to do their very best when it comes to safety and ethics.
* At this stage of the game, no one has been able to create a 100% natural nail polish that works.
