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
  • Beauty Without Cruelty
  • Color Club
  • Deborah Lippmann (the nail polishes are all vegan, but not all treatments are)
  • E.L.F.

    Rimmel London don’t test on animals and their “60 seconds super shine” nail polish definitely contains no animal products. I don’t know about there other nail polishes but pretty sure that one is clean! πŸ™‚

      Sadly, Rimmel does test on animals. πŸ™

      Hi Kalyn,

      Butter London was removed from this list because not all of their nail polishes are vegan anymore. πŸ™

    I thought I saw Wet n wild on here a while back. Are their polishes no longer vegan?

    • Monday - July 6, 2015 at 12:27 pm

      Hi Janet,

      Wet’n’Wild did used to be on this list. I removed them because not all polish shades are vegan, which is really confusing for a lot of people. So I decided to make this a list where people can pick from brands where they don’t have to worry about checking ingredients in each shade.

      Hi Monqiue,

      I’m not familiar with the brand, but have reached out to them. Hopefully they can be added to the list soon!
