Brand: Scotch Naturals
Well.ca (my referral link) has been clearing out a few lines of nail polish, so when I spotted Scotch Naturals’ Caleigh on sale for CA$10, it found its way into my shopping cart. I’ve tried one other Scotch Naturals polish in Loch Lomond and was a bit meh on it. Caleigh looked too pretty to pass on, though! Plus, I really like their bottles. I’m such a sucker for packaging.
Caleigh is a pastel baby blue cream that would be quite perfect as a baby shower gift. The formula is surprisingly better than I expected, comparing it to Loch Lomond. It applies fairly evenly and is opaque with two to three coats, depending on how thick your coats are. I did three thin coats for my swatch. However, like Loch Lomond, it doesn’t quite self-even, so you have to watch out for that.
I’m quite happy with this one; I guess Scotch Naturals is hit or miss for me so far.
Scotch Naturals Premium Nail Lacquer retails for US$15 and is 0.36 US fl oz / 10.5 mL. It is made in the USA.
The lacquer is free of “phthalates, parabens, and toxins”. The ingredients are: “alcohol denat, shellac, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, +/- CI77891; CI15850; CI77742; CI77491 (iron oxide); CI 19140, CI42090 (lake); and/or mica”. The polish is not vegan due to the presence of shellac, which is produced by the lac bug.
I do want to note that for some reason, my bottle of polish has a slightly different ingredient list from the one on the official site’s FAQ:
Scotch Naturals is based out of Phoenix, AZ, USA.
