Vegan Finds: Soulstice Spa nail polish review + Swatches

For the past few weeks I've been testing polishes from a vegan & cruelty-free brand called Soulstice Spa.

They are USA based and "non-toxic, 3FREE color + shine ---- free of toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate".

The three colors shown are from the Fall 2011 collection!
Left to Right: LA, South Beach & Telluride
LA: Stars & sparkle; glitter dust.
South Beach: Sheer white, sleek and modern.
Telluride: Ethereal, crisp light green shine.

  • Great consistency- Not runny or too thick.
  • Two coats to get good coverage.
  • High shine (similar to a gel treatment)
I loved the mix of Glitter sizes in LA.
I found that they were easier to remove with a base underneath.
 COMBO: LA & Telluride

I think that South Beach applied like a dream: Smoothly!
This is a color that I would not usually rock but it I'm starting to like it on my skin tone.
Two Coats of South Beach.
Overall I would give these polishes great high marks. They could definitely rival the non-vegan polishes on the market. As for the price, $8.00/ $8.50 is very reasonable for a cruelty-free polish.

How often do you get your nails done at a salon?

This year I have gone around six times. To me that's a lot. 
In previous years if I went once that would be amazing.

With new colors, designs and fun alternatives like Shellac around, how can I stay away!
My question for you is ..

I know..
EVERYONE and their mom is wearing crackle nails right now.
Instead of doing the basic manicure, I find ways to spice it up!

TRI-color mani!
I started off with the yellow then added the pink to the top and the bottom
with enough space for the yellow to shine through.

I always use BARRYM nail effects for my crackle look.
