fall-nail-polish-opi-2014

OPI recently launched their Fall/Winter collection, Nordic. It consists of 12 Scandinavian-pun-filled polishes from a wide, but cohesive, range of colors and finishes. It’s pretty fantastic, but since OPI is not cruelty-free, I came up with 12 dupes and semi-dupes for it! The colors are the closest matches I could find and that are still in stock, and of course, all cruelty-free. Some of them were nearly impossible to find dupes for (Going My Way or Norway, Ice-Bergers and Fries, the two lighter browish tones) but some shades I would consider dupes (Emilia, Colorful Coral, Rooney, Indigo, Wednesday).

If you’ve been eyeing this collection, here’s a list of all the cruelty-free colors for you to choose from!

Top Row
Furless – Actress
Rescue Beauty Lounge – Gelato Al Cioccolato
China Glaze – Desert Sun
Barry M – Indigo
Zoya – Wednesday
Milani – Colorful Coral

Botton Row
Zoya – Cosmo Magical Pixiedust
Zoya – Emilia
Seche – Mischevious
China Glaze – Charmed I’m Sure
China Glaze – Don’t Make Me Wine
Zoya – Rooney

Here’s OPI’s Nordic Collection:

Suzi Has a Swede Tooth by OPI (pictured above) is a bright cotton candy pink. Rooney by Zoya is a really good dupe for it!

As for someone who loves beauty and fashion, I’m so happy to come across this page. I have high hopes that there is cosmetics and beauty that are cruelty free even vegan products out there.

I really cannot thank you enough for this post and this blog in general! I had such guilt buying makeup thinking it was all tested on animals so I stopped buying it. This blog is so helpful!! I even found an all natural nail salon in my area that only uses cruelty free products that I never even knew existed!! This blog alone is saving hundreds of animals from testing. You have a good heart and I really appreciate the information you share on here 🙂

in addition to cruelty free, are all of these at least free of the “Big 3” toxins?? I know Zoya is “Big 5 Free” according to their website, just not sure of the rest yet.

Thanks so much for your kind words. 🙂 Orly is cruelty-free too! China Glaze also owns Seche by the way, and they make some nice polish as well!

I was just wondering that myself. I’d like to get my nails done for job interviews and gel polish is great, but I wan’t cruelty free or vegan.
