DID YA HEAR? LUSH recently announced it will be removing eggs from all its beauty products! πŸ₯šπŸš«
"All of our products will now officially be egg-free. But never fear, your fave Lush goodies will be as effective as ever thanks to some egg-citing ingredient replacements."
LUSH is cruelty-free with mostly vegan products, but some of their beauty products still contain some animal by-products like lanolin, honey, and/or milk. Hopefully, they're working on becoming a 100% vegan brand in the near future! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ€žπŸ»

40 Cruelty-Free + Vegan Nail Polish Brands

This post may contain affiliate links.

There’s so many Β vegan nail polish options on the market right now that I had to share this growing list with you all! I getΒ 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 absolutelyΒ 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!!

    Why is OPI in the photo of CF nail polishes, when you say at the top that they aren’t cruelty free?

    • Vicky Ly
      February 23, 2018

      I’m not sure which photo you’re referring to but the one photo in this post that I designed with all the nail polishes does NOT include OPI. If you could please clarify where you’re seeing a photo of OPI, thank you! =)

    KL Polish is cruelty free! Not sure if it’s vegan, but it’s a great formula that I really enjoy. Thank you for this list!

    Does anyone know of any cruelty free press on nails or glue? They’re pretty much non-existent, I feel. πŸ™

    Hi Vicky, thanks for the list! I am looking for a vegan alternative to essie ballet slippers and mademoiselle, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Can you help? You listed “VEQUE” as being vegan. I was unable to find this brand. Is this a typo, and should it read “Venique”? Thank you. (AND THANK YOU FOR THIS ARTICLE)

    • Vicky Ly
      January 25, 2018

      It’s a relatively new brand so that’s probably why they’re not ranking higher in search results but here’s their website! =) https://www.veque.com/ I tried a handful of their polish and they’re AMAZING! Very opaque and they have some beautiful colors. I’ll be posting a review of their polish soon!

    Great list, Thank you so much! I was just wondering about Zao, isn’t that vegan aswell?

    Thank you so much for this valuable and helpful list. Despite being listed as a 100% vegan brand, Priti NYC has a primer/ ridge filler product that is described as containing silk powder. This product is also described as being vegan. Of course it isn’t vegan if it contains silk.

    • Vicky Ly
      November 28, 2017

      Hey Meghan,
      How frustrating! I had another reader inform me that some derivative of silk was listed in another Priti product! I emailed them to inquire about this and they assured me that the product didn’t actually contain that ingredient and their products remain to be vegan.

      I’ve now removed the label “100% vegan” from Priti NYC and I’ll contact them again to ask what the deal is with their label and ingredients!

      Thanks for letting me know Meghan!

      Hey Meghan,
      I just got a response back from Priti and they have again assured me that none of the nail polish or treatments contain silk powder.

      Here is their response on the matter:

      “i had no idea that i had left the ingredient listing up from when we first started which had silk powder .01 percent in it. we reformulated that pretty fast. and i haven’t been the one to check my website for a long time.
      so a client pointed it out yesterday…this is our ingredient list. for that product which i will replace on the site.”

      They attached an ingredient list which I looked over and silk powder wasn’t listed. Thank goodness!! =)

    Are the polishes on this list 5 free or higher? That is the only kind I use and buy.
