When I first switched to using all vegan beauty and household products, I was really surprised at how easy it was to find vegan nail polish. There are a lot of cruelty free brands that offer a lot of vegan options and there are also a lot of strictly vegan nail polish brands too. A lot of people have seemed really surprised when they learn that all nail polish isn’t vegan. People know about animal testing and what brands to avoid because of that, but not about animal ingredients that polish can contain. The short story is that a lot of brands test on animals, but a lot of nail polish also contains animal ingredients. Read more about what makes nail polish vegan and learn what these animal ingredients are.
In doing a lot of my own research into what brands of nail polish were strictly vegan, I decided to share this list with readers. I think it’s really important to be aware of what you are buying and the industries that it might be supporting as well as the ingredients that your beauty products contain. Honestly, at first I thought that it would be hard to find vegan nail polish. I thought that I would have to go to salons or order online and pay $10+ per bottle. As I learned, it’s surprising how available vegan nail polish brands are, and how affordable and high quality they can be too.
For those looking to see what the vegan options are from cruelty free nail polish brands, just sit tight. That post will be coming up very soon!
