Buying Cruelty-Free in Canada | Affordable Shopping

When I read other cruelty-free blogs, many times the products, stores, and websites they’re recommending are on the pricier side.

Mani Monday #9: Pretty in Periwinkle!

Today, I have another Mani Monday for you! On my nails, I’m currently wearing Chill by SpaRitual — a gorgeous periwinkle blue colour.  I painted two coats of this colour to create a super opaque look, although, I could have easily just done one coat and it would have looked pretty opaque.  After that, I… Continue reading Mani Monday #9: Pretty in Periwinkle!
