After I created my list of over 40+ cruelty-free and vegan nail polish brands, many of you have been asking about nail polish remover.
Although most nail polish remover is already vegan, as it’s essentially just a mixture of alcohol, you also want to make sure the brand of nail polish remover you choose to buy does not test their ingredients on animals and therefore making them also cruelty-free.
Thankfully there are plenty of cruelty-free nail polish brands that offer vegan nail polish remover solutions, including acetone-free options and remover pads!

This is my all-time favorite vegan nail polish remover.
