Soigne Do Plant Based Nails

Soigne Botanique Plant-Based, Eco Friendly Nail Polish

Hello all! Massive apologies for the lack of recent postings. University have seriously got me by the short-and-curlies at the moment with presentations and epic essays. Thankfully, it's now officially the Christmas holidays so I can steal a little extra blogging time! I've been so excited to bring you this post. I'm a hardcore nail polish addict and it's so hard to find quality, pigmented products that aren't riddled with chemicals and animal colourings or come from sketchy companies with shady animal testing policies. Recently though, I was told about the Soigne Botanique* range. A completely cruelty-free, 85% plant based collection of vegan-friendly nail polishes in some seriously gorgeous colours but without all the nasty junk.

Soigne (pronounced swahn-yay) want to completely rewrite the nail polish rule book by adding an ECO clause. They've developed a range that's free from harsh chemicals and carcinogenic ingredients whilst making no compromise on quality. Their ingredients are sourced from wood pulp, corn, potatoes and wheat. Not only is this good news for our nails, and for the environment, but it's amazing news for animals. The polishes are proving to be a huge hit. They've even been praised by Vogue Magazine!

I've been playing around with 3 of the shades: Bleuet, Pomegranate and Muscadene and I'm so impressed with the pigmentation of these babies! Bleuet is the most gorgeous, deep petrol blue I've ever clapped eyes on. I don't think I've ever seen a shade like it. Pomegranate has the honour of being this year's Christmas day mani. It's a pure, brilliant red which is spot-on for this time of year. Muscadene is a darkened violet that is also perfect for the Autumn/Winter season. Who doesn't love a blackcurrant mani? The polishes are pretty much chip-proof with the right top coat. Bleuet lasted a good week on me before it started to look tired.

Soigne polishes range from delicate nudes, to pretty pastels, to creamy browns (and every other colour in between). The packaging is simplistic, clean and chic. Prices range from £11 for singles (10ml) to boxed collections priced around £38 (5x10ml), although they're currently reduced in a seasonal sale so get them while they're hot!
