A while back, I was lucky enough to get gifted a bottle of this gorgeous vampy red from one of the nurses at work. Apparently she is quite the nail laquer collector, and noticed this was vegan, so she thought I might like to try it. It’s Red Red Wine from the Pacifica company, which I had never heard of. Turns out that they’re 100% vegan and cruelty free, and like the other polish that I’d had success with (Zoya) it’s free of those nasty chemicals that my nails seem to hate. Pacifica 7 FREE Nail Polish is formulated without parabens, phthalates (dibutyl phthalate), toluene, xylene, camphor, formaldehyde, resin, and animals.
I had originally just intended to do my toes, but it turned out to be such a nice shade that I ended up doing my fingernails too, and just hoping for the best. Here are several pictures from how it wore through the week…
It wore exceedingly well!! I applied it on Saturday, and that last picture was on the following Saturday, right before I took it off. I was really impressed. I’ll admit, as stupid as it sounds, I was initially put off by the product design (ew, white!), and that’s probably why it took me so long to try it out. I don’t know if it was the formaldehyde or what in regular nail polish that I reacted to so badly to before, but ever since I’ve tried these vegan polishes, my nails not only don’t chip after one day like they always used to, but they’re left in immaculate condition instead of peeling and breaking after just one wearing. REALLY GREAT STUFF.
Futhermore, it wasn’t until I went to write this post that I discovered that they have a full line of vegan beauty products including makeup, skincare, fragrance (cough, sneeze, if you’re not allergic like I am!), etc., AND that it’s conveniently available at places like Target, Whole Foods, and drug stores! Definitely will be checking out more of their products!
