Vegan Nail Polish Brand List

Vegan Nail Polish Brand List

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.

Below are brands who are not only cruelty free, but also do not use any animal ingredients in their nail polish.

  • a.dorn
  • a England
  • AILA Cosmetics
  • American Apparel
  • Beauty Without Cruelty
  • Color Club
  • Deborah Lippmann (the nail polishes are all vegan, but not all treatments are)
  • E.L.F.
  • Ella + Mila
  • Elysian Nail Lacquer
  • Fairypants
  • Flower
  • Furless
  • La Couleur Couture (LACC)
  • Lime Crime
  • LVX
  • Manic Panic
  • NCLA
  • No Miss
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC)
  • ORLY (the nail polishes are all vegan, but not all treatments are)
  • Pacifica

  • Piggy Paint
  • Priti NYC
  • Ruby Kisses
  • Sante

    Butter London?

      Hi Kalyn,

      Butter London was removed from this list because not all of their nail polishes are vegan anymore. :(

      Hi Elise,

      Thanks for suggesting this brand! I haven’t looked into them before, which is why they don’t appear on the list. I’ve just sent them an inquiry and have added them to the pending brands list. Please check back in the future to see what list they are on. This will depend on how fast I hear back from them.

    Serum No.5 is both Cruelty Free and Vegan. The polishes are handmade too. I’m a big fan of this new found brand in IG.

      Hi Mik,

    Julep offers vegan, 5 free and 4 free formulas.

    • Friday - May 8, 2015 at 12:07 pm

      I have reached out to Julep about their animal testing stance and use of animal ingredients many times, but have never received a response. Because of this, I don’t feel comfortable adding them to the list.

    Furless Cosmetics do a heap of colours which are all vegan. They’re an Aussie brand who also do amazingly soft makeup brushes. I’ve not tried any of their polish because my nails peel and the colour peels off when the nail does. Tracking down a vegan nail treatment is tough, most have silk in them thus my nails still peel. I’m not sure if the nail polishes can be posted outside of Australia though, some can’t because they’re considered dangerous goods. But I know there are lots of Aussies who read your blog.

      I completely forgot that they make nail polish! I’m adding them to the list now. :)
