SuryaBrasil Exotic Animals Nail Polishes will bring out the animal in you

Surya Brasil Exotic Animal Polish collection

SuryaBrasil, a natural and organic line, has been a favorite company of mine for years thanks to their devotion to environmental preservation, animal welfare and environmental responsibility.  I love their hair and body products, but never tried their nail polishes until recently.  Marcia raved about two shades she loves from the Exotic Animals Collection, and after trying some myself I am joining her happy dance!  (You can read her review of Peacock and Gold Faced Lion Tamarins HERE).

While Marcia’s colors were bright and bold, mine are just perfect for the coming of winter months.  That’s one of the beauties of the Exotic Animals Nail Polish Collection – the 16 polishes ($12 each) are all vibrant but they cover a huge variety of shades that work for all seasons.  The nail polishes are all vegan, certified 7-free, and absolutely not tested on animals – the animals are just pictured on the bottles!

7-FREE: 

  • NO Camphor
  • NO DBP
  • NO Formaldehyde
  • NO Parabens
  • NO Toluene
  • NO ingredients of animal origin
  • NO animal testing

Right now there is a cool special going on – buy a color polish from the collection, and get a free pair of Gold Grass Earrings.  They are awfully pretty, aren’t they?

SuryaBrasil Exotic Animals Base Coat

I tested three colors plus the Base Coat.  The Base Coat looks like it would give nails a tint, but it doesn’t – it just evens out the surface so polish goes on evenly and lasts longer.  There is also a top coat and an oil nail dryer available in the collection.  I love the toucan on the bottle.  The packaging for all the nail polishes is really adorable.

SuryaBrasil Exotic Animals Eclectus Parrot

The Eclectus Parrot is a deep dark red shade, exactly the shade of red I look for at holiday time!  I stay away from orangey reds or anything too bright.  For whatever reason, when it’s cold out I want a deep, warm red that is festive, and this really fits the bill.  The parrot is fantastic – he’s actually native from Indonesia and unfortunately is extinct in some areas.

I don’t usually go for brown shades on my nails, but I am totally digging the brown the Giant Anteater brings to my nails!  I love this super shiny dark brown – hip and pretty all at the same time.  And so is that Anteater!!

SuryaBrasil Exotic Animals White Tiger

How amazing is this White Tiger ?  There are only 500 of these beautiful creatures left on the earth.  This matte white shade is very thick so be careful there isn’t too much on the brush when applying.  It’s a great shade to have in your collection for nail art projects too.

SuryaBrasil Exotic Animals Nail Polish Collection

Surya Brasil unleashes exotic animals with their stunning nail polishes

SURYA BRASIL shocked the pants off me with their nail polishes and not because of the exotic animals that could be scary. Rather it’s due to the amazing quality of these nail polishes. I was previously aware of Surya Brasil’s haircare and skincare but I was surprised when I was offered some of the polishes to review. Now though I’m going to be a repeat customer.

“The Exotic Animals Nail Polish collection is inspired by nature’s wonderful colors to leave your nails beautiful and healthy. There are many vibrant and bright colors, each one dedicated to a specific exotic animal from all over the world.”

The two polishes I was sent are gorgeous in totally different ways. Peacock is so aptly named because it has the glorious blues that you fist notice when a peacock spreads its wings. I am a huge fan of metallic polish and this is metallic at its best. There were absolutely no brush marks when applied.

The polish lasted a full week and could have gone on and on. Sometimes the teal was more prominent and other times the blue shined through. It was a pleasure wearing this for a week.

The other polish I have is one that I’m gaga over. It’s so different than anything in my collection. Gold-faced Lion Tamarin is stunning. It’s listed as a bright golden brown but I also see tones of green and bronze at times.

The animal it was created to honor is just on the verge of extinction. Gold-faced Lion Tamarins are very family-oriented animals: they live in groups and both parents share different tasks to care of the yearly twins.

There are so many reasons to want these in your collection including all the ingredients that they DON’T contain (camphor, DBP, formaldehyde, parabens, toulene). In keeping with its exotic animal theme they are cruelty free with no animal testing or use of any animal product.

What’s especially fun about the collection is that the animal that inspired them is pictured on the bottle. You can have your own zoo without harming an animal!

Now that you are aware of these vegan polishes I definitely think it’s time to turn on the wild animal in you.  —  Marcia
