Today I found a cruelty-free nail salon, and got served blueberry tea while I sat in a beach chair, with my feet in real sand!

They are called Beach Beauty, and they are located at 1909B 17th Ave SW, Lower Level, Calgary.

I’m absolutely in love with their beliefs too, which are providing a clean, safe and sustainable working environment, using and selling toxic-free products, and encouraging and teaching healthy living. They also believe in positive and uplifting leadership and service, using and selling cruelty free products, and offering an affordable, quality, and fun beauty experience. Last but not least they provide a relaxing, boho-luxe space for guests to feel comfortable in, and making every guest feel cared for, and beautiful.

I had the ‘make it a double’ which included a gel manicure, and pedicure for $86 which is not bad at all!

Cruelty-Free Nail Polish Brands

I recently came across a brand on Instagram called LLC Promise, which is a cruelty-free, and VEGAN nail polish brand and I LOVE them!

What drew me to these nail polishes is the beautiful neutral colours they have. In the picture below (left to right) I got quiet storm, simply marvellous, purple reign, and prototype.

My favourite nail colour by LLC Promise is actually ‘all about the Benjamin’s’ but I cracked it open. 🙁

LLC Promise is also free of Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Xylene and Parabens.

A list of 40 cruelty-free & vegan nail polish brands:

Why is it important to buy cruelty-free & vegan nail polishes?

Right now, rats, rabbits, primates, cats, dogs, and other animals are locked inside barren cages in laboratories across the country. They are in pain, and suffer from extreme frustration, ache with loneliness, and long to be free. Don’t support this.

Enjoy!

& remember a kinder world begins with you.
