Please read till the end ๐ŸŒฟ I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials ๐Ÿงฝ They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans โญ๏ธ They were also made in Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. ๐ŸŒฑ This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! ๐Ÿ˜” Making them actually NOT compostable.
.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
.
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! ๐ŸŒฟ

Some grocery stores have temporarily banned the use of reusable bags fear of the potential risk of further spreading the virus. Instead, stores will be handing out plastic bags to customers, free of charge.

โœง Totally understandable given our current situation, so this is a great time to make sure all of our reusable bags are washed and if needed, repaired ๐ŸŒฟ

โœง แด‡แด„แด-แด›ษชแด˜: For bigger and bulkier items, I always like to use boxes (the grocery stores always have these on hand and they're totally free!) and when I forget to bring my reusable bags, I try to limit the number of items I buy to however many I can carry in my hands and out the store.
.
โœง Buying produce (like leafy greens ๐Ÿฅฌ) without a bag is another story... Iโ€™d love to know, do you have any tips or tricks for reducing our plastic consumption while buying produce during these times?

Ultimate List of 70+ Cruelty-Free & Vegan Nail Polish Brands

Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Vegan Nail Polish
Ultimate Guide to Cruelty-Free Vegan Nail Polish

There are so many cruelty-free and 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 (70+!) cruelty-free nail polish brands that all have vegan options!

What is Vegan Nail Polish?

First, let’s start by asking what makes traditional nail polish not vegan? Certain animal-derived ingredients may be lurking in our nail colors including an ingredient called guanine which is derived from fish scales and used in shimmery nail polish colors; keratin used as a nail strengthener; and shellac which is produced from the lac bug and commonly used as a high-shine hardener.

Vegan nail polish do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

What is Cruelty-Free Nail Polish?

In addition, we also want to make sure we’re not supporting or buying from any nail polish brands that test their products, ingredients or formulations on animals, anywhere in the world. Unfortunately, some of the most popular and widely available nail polish brands are not cruelty-free, mainly because they choose to sell their products in mainland China, where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics (including nail polish).

Nail polish brands that are not cruelty-free in 2019 include OPI, Essie, Revlon, Sally Hansen, L’Oreal, Sinful Colors, Chanel, Givenchy, Dior, Tom Ford, and Christian Louboutin.

Cruelty-free nail polish are not tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

All of the nail polish brands listed in this post are cruelty-free meaning they don’t test on animals. Although some of the brands may not be entirely 100% vegan, I made sure to only include ones that offer vegan nail polish products. Please note that brands that are not marked as being “100% Vegan” may carry other nail care or cosmetic products (like cuticle oils, remover, lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, skincare) that may not be vegan.

Scroll down for a comprehensive list of all 70+ cruelty-free and vegan nail polish brands!

Quick Guide: Vegan Nail Polish

Below is a quick guide to vegan nail polish where you’ll find our recommendations for:

  • Drugstore vegan nail polish
  • Gel vegan nail polish
  • Non-toxic vegan nail polish
  • Water-based vegan nail polish

Drugstore Vegan Nail Polish

If you’re looking for drugstore vegan nail polish at Target, Wal-mart, Ulta, London Drugs, CVS, or Superdrug, we recommend trying out Zoya, Pacifica, ORLY, ella + mila, Mineral Fusion, ELF, Barry M, and Piggy Paint. All of which are relatively affordable and under $10!

Gel Vegan Nail Polish

Get a professional gel manicure in the comfort of your home with these cruelty-free and vegan soak-off gel polishes: Madam Glam, NCLA’s Gelous?, Dimension Nails, Color Club’s Gel, and ORLY GELFX. You will need an LED or UV lamp when using these vegan gel polishes.

Non-Toxic Vegan Nail Polish

For those of us that want cruelty-free & vegan non-toxic nail polishes that contain fewer chemicals but without compromising on durability, quality, or nail color options, we highly recommend these vegan non-toxic nail polishes: Sienna Byron Bay, Londontown, VEQUE, SpaRitual, NCLA, 100% Pure, and Lauren B. Beauty.

Water-Based Vegan Nail Polish

Want a non-toxic, virtually odorless nail polish that is safe enough for your kids to use? Give water-based nail polish a try! Almost all water-based nail polishes don’t contain any animal ingredients but some brands may be selling in China where animal testing is required by law. We recommend the following cruelty-free water-based nail polishes: Honeybee Gardens, Piggy Paint, Acquarella, SOPHi, Snails (S’N’B), Pure Anada, and Color Club’s Water Color Collection.

    Are Kiss products cruelty free? I can’t find info anywhere on them.

โ€œMake ethical choices in what we buy, do, and watch. In a consumer-driven society our individual choices, used collectively for the good of animals and nature, can change the world faster than laws.โ€โ€• Marc Bekoff
