I was wondering if you could tell me whether there is any animal testing in the production of your nail polishes, either by conducting or commissioning animal testing, or buying ingredients from companies that do such things?

Also, wondering if there are any animal ingredients in any of the nail polishes (such as guanine, pearl, silk, carmine)? Do you have ingredients lists available?

I`m asking because I’d love to get some of your holographic polishes if they’re suitable for vegans!
