Cruelty Free Nail Polish

Posted on: December 15, 2011

On the hunt for cruelty free nail polish? I’ve found a selection of brands that subscribe to the cruelty-free motto, so feel free to give one of these a chance if you’re looking for high-quality polish without the guilt!

Priti NYC Nail Polish

Priti NYC Nail Polish comes in a wide variety of colors, from pale neutrals to in-your-face bolds, and all formulas are made without formaldehyde, dibutyl phathalate (DBP), toluene, and camphor. They also have a 50% off section you can browse when you’re on a tight budget.

Beauty Without Cruelty

Formulated without toluene, phthalates and formaldehyde, the polishes from Beauty Without Cruelty are a great brand to add to your cruelty-free collection. While on the pricier side, those who already pay for “designer” polish shouldn’t have a problem shelling out the cash. Their color selection offers a decent amount of shades, and you may find one or two truly unique colors here.

Hopscotch Kids

Targeted primarily towards children, these polishes will work great on your adult fingers too – and they’re completely non-toxic. If they’re good enough for kids to wear, you know they’re safe enough for you too! They sell several individual colors in fun shades, plus special gift sets and soy and plant based nail polish removers.

PeaceKeeper Nail Paint

Most of the polishes from this line are 100% vegan and cruelty-free, but make sure to check their FAQ page if you have any concerns. The Environmental Working Group has rated these polishes as a 3 as far as toxicity levels are concerned, and they are the highest ranked non-FD&C paint based nail polish currently on the list! If you’re looking for a great, natural polish, give this line a try.

There are lots of brands out their that advertise cruelty-free nail polish, but I wanted to highlight a few that many people may not be aware of. If you have a favorite cruelty-free brand, please share in the comments! As always, stay lovely.
