Mani Monday: Pacifica 7 Free Nail Polish

Monday, July 28, 2014

Pacifica's Purple Haze, $9.00
Last month, Pacifica launched their new 7 free nail polish, a new category for the brand via their color collection, which launched last year. There are so many brands out there doing 5 free, but Pacifica took it up a notch and is doing 7 free, meaning it is free of parabens, phthalates, toluene, xylene, camphor, formaldehyde and resin and full of color!

With 25 shades, you can dress up your digits with a new look throughout the entire summer.  And, you can feel great about it knowing that the polish is 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

When I received this nail polish I wasn't expecting much because I never used a 7 free nail polish. I thought it was going to be watered down and chip easily (I'm a monster when it comes to manicures) but I was pleasantly surprised. It is chalked full of color and the manicure last just as long as a chemical filled polish.

I'm trying to live a cleaner life, eating a plant based diet and using as little chemicals on my skin as possible so this nail polish is a perfect fit!

For more information, check out the Pacificia website (great makeup too)!

Cashmere brand Iris von Arnim is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this year with the launch of a special, limited edition anniversary Casanova Sweater. 

The Casanova Sweater ($995) is made of 100% cashmere and is available now on!.
The uber cute pug sweater is inspired by the motif sweaters Iris von Arnim first became known for in the 1980's. “There was no pattern or motive safe from me. Whether it was an elephant or a Paul Klee - I was inspired by everything” says Iris von Arnim. 
Iris von Arnim, who has knit for the likes of Claudia Schiffer, Ben Affleck and Cate Blanchett, first took up knitting after a car accident in the 1970's left her hospital bound for several months. The company is now one of the most widely recognized and respected cashmere brands in Europe, where Iris is fondly knows as 'Cashmere Queen'. 
Yes….we know it's the height of summer but this limited edition sweater has been released in limited quantities so won't be around for long. Get it while it's hot (literally!)
