some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.

How? the term '๐šŒ๐š›๐šž๐šŽ๐š•๐š๐šข-๐š๐š›๐šŽ๐šŽ' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š—' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)

๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ๐“ฎ: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.

Best Cruelty-Free and Vegan Gel Nail Polish

Posted on
This post may contain affiliate links.

If you want your nail polish or manicure to last longer than a week without chipping, then I highly recommend giving gel nail polish a try!

You can get gel nails done at the nail salon by a professional or you can simply do them yourself at home. All you need is an LED or UV lamp which you can find plenty on Amazon.

Gel polish (also known as soak off gel polish) is a special type of nail polish that hardens under the LED/UV lamp, you apply them just like regular nail polish but cure them under the lamp in between coats. The only downside with gel polish is the removal process which does require you to soak them in acetone or nail polish remover for several minutes.

      Hey Tracey,
      I just checked essence’s website and they have a gel-like nail polish but it doesn’t require a lamp or curing so it’s a great alternative for people who don’t want to use a lamp to cure their nails. I’d love to know how long they last though. Have you tried them before? =)

    Thanks for the information! Do you know if there are any dip powder brands that are cruelty and vegan?
