40 Cruelty-Free + Vegan Nail Polish Brands
EDITED: NOV 24, 2016
There’s so many vegan nail polish options on the market right now that I had to share this growing list with you all! I get super excited when I see this many (40+!) cruelty-free brands that all have vegan options!
In case you’re wondering what animal ingredients are lurking in our nail polish? The answer is fish scales (for that shimmery color) and some nail polish are made with shellac which is a by-product from the lac bug.
There’s absolutely no reason to continue purchasing nail polish from OPI, Essie, Revlon, and Sally Hansen when there’s 40+ cruelty-free and vegan nail polish brands available!!
I’ve ordered the list in the image according to their prices from affordability to luxury so that you can find one that meets your budget!
Below you will find an updated list of cruelty-free and vegan nail polish brands:
Please note: I have confirmed the following brands mentioned below carry vegan nail polish but some brands may also have other product lines that are not all vegan like nail treatments, lipsticks, perfume, lotions. Brands that carry only vegan products is noted with (100% vegan).
