Product Pick: Sula Paint & Peel Nail Color Mini Sets

meilily-sula-paint&peel-nail-set-pale-vintageMeilily Product Pick: Sula Paint & Peel Non-toxic Nail Colors!

Sula Paint & Peel nail colors are fun and safe non-toxic nail polish alternatives that come in modern and fun shades. Now, Canadian company Sula has come out with fantastic new mini sets that allow you to try three different shades of peel-off Paint & Peel nail colors for little more than the price of one.

I highly recommend these cute new Sula Paint & Peel mini sets, especially if you are new to these non-toxic peel-off nail paints. You get to try three Sula minis for $12.50 (instead of $9 for one full size)! I’d also suggest getting one of the two available top coats ($9) to extend the wear longer than a few hours.

Meilily Product Photos & Swatches – OPI Breathe Life Nail Polish!

As you might remember, Meilily announced the launch of OPI’s new Lung Cancer Foundation of America nail polish called Breathe Life about a month ago, with links to several great blog swatches.

OPI’s Breathe Life nail polish has since been generating some buzz online, so in order to help satisfy the demand for real-life swatches of OPI’s Breathe Life lung cancer awareness nail polish, Meilily now has new swatches and photos of OPI’s Breathe Life nail polish

[You’ll have to pardon the application! In contrast to the amazingly perfect swatches of those expert nail polish bloggers, Meilily’s sophomore swatches show how nail polish will look when applied by, say, your seven year old niece. So, these could help some of you!]

Peacekeeper Cause-metics 6th Year Anniversary Sale: 20% Off

Monday, April 13th, 2009 | Beauty and Awareness, Free Stuff, Makeup, Nail Polish, Sales | Comments Off on Peacekeeper Cause-metics 6th Year Anniversary Sale: 20% Off

Meilily Sale Alert!

Peacekeeper Cause-metics is celebrating their 6th Anniversary with a one week sale ending soon!

From April 7 – 14, 2009, get 20% off Peacekeeper makeup from www.iamapeacekeeper.com, always with free shipping!

I’m a big fan of the Peacekeeper Cause-metics philosophy of producing safer cosmetics while promoting women’s rights.  Did you know Peacekeeper donates all after-tax profits to women’s health and human rights concerns?

I discovered Peacekeeper a while back when looking for a nail polish with not-so-toxic ingredients and also vegan-friendly products.  Now, one of my favorite Peacekeeper products is the Nail Paint, a nail polish (Big 3-Free) that wears like iron, yet removes easily.

Meilily Shopping Tip: Consider ordering a custom gift set (including nail polish, lip gloss, and lipstick) if you’re interested in trying several Peacekeeper products, since you can save a little money that way.

Do check back for Peacekeeper products photos and reviews! from Meilily

OPI Breathe Life Nail Lacquer Helps the Lung Cancer Foundation of America

Monday, March 23rd, 2009 | Beauty and Awareness, Hot Happenings, Nail Polish, Product Picks | 1 Comment

Meilily New Product Alert!

Introducing LCFA & OPI Breathe Life Nail Lacquer

Nail polish maker, OPI, has announced their new nail polish called Breathe Life, developed specifically to help the Lung Cancer Foundation of America (LCFA). OPI’s Breathe Life nail polish was created for the Lung Cancer Foundation of America to increase awareness about lung cancer, with OPI  making a donation to the Foundation to help find a cure and even sponsoring ads for the campaign.

Available starting April 1, 2009, the new OPI Breathe Life LCFA shade appears to be a soft cloudy sky blue color that looks intriguingly wearable for a blue nail polish. Given that practically any shade of blue nail polish is fashionable right now, OPI’s Breathe Life nail polish may be launching at just the perfect time.

To find out more about the Lung Cancer Foundation of America, see their website at LCFAmerica.org, the LCFA lung cancer facts page, and the LCFA Breathe Life campaign information page.
