My Top 5 Vegan Nail Polish Brands

My Top 5 Vegan Nail Polish Brands

Did you know that some nail polish contains ingredients from animals? A lot of people are surprised to learn that nail polish can even be vegan. Sadly, a lot of brands test on animals and a lot of nail polish also contains animal ingredients. I suggest that you find out what makes nail polish vegan. You may be surprised at what it can contain.When it comes to nail polish, there are a few brands that I really love!

In this video I share some of my favorite brands with you.

You can also view a full list of vegan nail polish brands to find out who else to purchase from. All brands on this list are cruelty free and their nail polish does not contain any animal ingredients.


  1. Butter london is not vegan. 🙁 There are colors without the Peta logo on them… Some reds and blacks and the new Gel Duo top and base coats… No logo. :(:( I was very bummed to learn this.

  2. Yay! This could not have been better timed. I am not a nail person by any means. In fact, I keep my nails super duper short, but lately I have been wanting to paint my super duper short nails 🙂 I was totes jealous of the LVX nail polish that people got in their vegan cuts beauty box this month so thanks for the list. Now I can pick and choose!

    1. I wish OPI was still cruelty free. 🙁 It was great to have them as an option because they are so easy to find in stores. Definitely try some of the brands listed here if you haven’t yet. Their quality is better than OPI!

      1. Barry M has a little green V in a heart on the ingredient list of every single one of its products, if it is vegan. If you don’t see that little symbol, it’s not vegan. I don’t actually think I’ve seen a Barry M product that isn’t vegan. But I still look at the ingredient list of everything I buy from them. And shipping with Barry M is expensive, but worth it, considering their polishes are so much cheaper than Zoya. (Barry M and Zoya are my favorite lines.)

        But I’m so glad to see more nail-polish lines on this blog that I hadn’t known about before. I’m afraid my polish collection is about to get much bigger!

          1. I’ve been meaning to update my previous comment. I tried to place an order with Barry M recently, and after waiting a month, they refused to fill my order, citing some bogus restriction on shipping on polishes. (If the restriction was real, they would have asked me to revise my order, but they didn’t. And I ordered makeup, too, which wasn’t a part of their restriction.) They just canceled my order. And I’d ordered from them before with no problems. I’ll never attempt to buy Barry M products again.

          1. Thank you for a blogging about such a good topic, Tashina! I love it that other people (and vegans especially) love and care about nail polish as much as I do.
