Scout Cosmetics Eco-Luxe Breathable Nail Polish Swatches
I love nail polishes! They add the perfect pop of colour to any look and you can quickly switch the shades to suit your mood or occasion. But one thing I found when I went cruelty free was that a lot of my faves tested on animals, boo :(
Thankfully one of my favourite Australian beauty brands, Scout Cosmetics, has a range of 100% vegan and Cruelty Free Breathable Nail Polishes which are made in Australia in a variety of show stopping shades!
Scout Cosmetics founder Sylvie Hutchings developed the Eco-Luxe Nail Polish range while undergoing chemotherapy as a safer alternative to other nail polishes on the market. During this intense treatment her fingernails were flaking off and the nurses were encouraging her to paint her nails but she definitely didn't want to apply any toxic chemicals to her body so she researched formulations that did not contain the known toxic ingredients, Two months after Sylvie completed treatment she launched the Scout Cosmetics Breathable Nail Polish range - inspiring right?!
I have been wearing Scout Cosmetics polishes for a couple of years now and I love them. The colour pay off is amazing, it only takes a couple of coats to get the perfect, high shine coverage and the finish is long lasting. In this post I am going to share swatches of some of my fave shades including some new ones to the collection.
