As I am sure all of you know by now OPI was bought by a company named COTY. Normally this wouldn't be such a bad thing except that COTY condones animal testing. As OPI was always animal cruelty free 3 free and overall awesome this comes as a shock to all of us loyal OPI fans.
I am so glad I got my natural nail base coat 2 weeks ago. Though it makes me sad for when I am going to have to find a new one:S
Other nail polish brands that do animal testing include:
L'Oreal ( which I didn't know until recently and then refused to buy one of there polishes last night when I feel in love with it...a bright blue jelly I neeeeeed a dupe)
Max Factor( do they do nail polish?)
One company that it surprises the *%# outta me in Nuetrogena. WHAT!?
Sally Beauty Supple
Its a good thing that we still have China Glaze( my favorite polish) Zoya and color club.
I will note that OPI says that they do plan on staying cruelty free, but by buying them you support COTY who does test on animals.
