“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

Great news Canadians! I’ve found the site to shop for all of your vegan and cruelty free nail polish needs!

I’ve heard and been on a couple years ago, they’ve been in business since 2011, but their outdated website design really turned me off. Sadly, not much has changed and it’s unfortunate because they do have a killer selection of vegan nail polish (full list of vegan brands below) and they’re super reliable and quick with their shipping. Am I the only one who judges a business based on their website? ?

nailpolishcanada_website carries a wicked selection of vegan nail polish

What made me take the leap of faith and proceeded with my order on was their insanely generous and competitive shipping rates… free shipping within Canada for orders over $25! or $3 flat rate for orders under $25! How can you say no to that?!

I placed my order on Tuesday, received an email on Wednesday saying it has been shipped (included tracking ID), and then I received it on Thursday!

{I should mention here that I googled their shipping address and it turns out that they’re local; in Vancouver and actually only 15 minutes of a drive from my house! I’m still impressed with their reliable delivery process nonetheless}


You get what you pay for – they don’t have the most glamorous packaging and from a tree-hugger perspective, I wasn’t thrilled to see a large box full of foam packing peanuts.

However they don’t promote themselves as an eco-friendly brand and instead, focus more on finding the best and newest nail polish colors for us! So I wasn’t expecting much. They also threw in a lollipop, which was a sweet touch.

Just in time for Summer, I decided to purchase Swagger by piCture pOlish, Tennis Anyone? by NCLA, and New Mood by Nubar. I have been on the hunt for NCLA polish since Tashina from Logical Harmony has been raving about them so I was excited to see nailpolishcanada carrying it!

Final Thoughts On Experience

I will definitely be repurchasing from, their prices are reasonable and they also have a rewards points program so the more you spend, the more points you get and then you can redeem it for more nail polish!

They however don’t have a ‘vegan’ filter option showcasing the 10 vegan nail polish brands they carry, so I’ve gone ahead and listed them below with links for your convenience! (None are affiliate links)

Vegan Nail Polish Brands Available at

Spa Ritual
piCture pOlish

    The packing peanuts Nail Polish Canada use are biodegradable (cornstarch, I think). I chuck them in with our compostables. Thanks for the list. They also carry some beautiful indie vegan brands like A England, Emily de Molly, ILNP, and probably some others I do not know about as well.

      Are they really?! I had no idea, I’ll have to email and ask for clarifications because that would be so awesome if they are! oOohh.. I’ve noticed that they’ve added a few more brands since this post! I’ll email the companies and ask for their animal testing policy, thanks for bringing that to my attention! =) and of course, I’ll update this list as new information becomes available so you can always reference this post =)
