Well, I have seen a lot of people unaware of the fact that your nail polish contains animal ingredients. Just for a basic overview, let me give you an insight that fish scales and shellac are two of the most excessively used animal by-products to make your nail polishes. So, ask yourself, is it worth it?

I am not asking you to stop using nail polishes. I mean, I understand it embellishes your aura and gives you very powerful and colorful confidence and appearance, respectively. However, there are alternatives to everything, and in this case, you could just stop pursuing such brands and products which contain animal ingredients. This post will talk about an array of nail polishes that are absolutely cruelty-free. You could use them without having the guilt of making an animal suffer.

Pretty Vulgar Nail Liquor

One of the core features that women look for in nail polishes is its ability to last for a long time and glossy look. Well, if you are that type, then this product might be the best for you and its built-in top coat is there to ensure that the color does not fade away for a significant amount of time.

This nail polish features an array of shades, and the coating keeps the color on your nails for several days. If we talk about the design of the bottle, it is particularly inspired by the whiskey bottle and is entirely custom designed to give it a personal and favorable look. Moreover, the brush is extra wide and curved as well so you do not have to rub it on your nail multiple times. Just a single rub would do the job.

It is worth noticing that the product is not only cruelty-free, but it does not contain any of the following chemicals:

  1. Phthalates
  2. Sulfates
  3. Parabens

ZOYA Nail Polish

These nail polishes are best known as medium mauve cream, offering full coverage. If you are looking for best and most appealing results, just pair it with Naturel 2 Collection shades. One of the best features of this nail polish is that it does not scrape away from your nail unless you intentionally take it off. So forget your color fading away or anything like that. Once you have colored the nails, the polish won’t go away unless you take it off.

For best results, it is always advised that you clean the nail plate first by using Remove Plus (as the name suggests, it happens to be a nail polish remover and is used to clean the plate as well).

We already know that the product is cruelty-free so let us get down to its chemical composition and that too, does not contain lead, formaldehyde, parabens, toluene, TPHP, dibutyl phthalate and a number of other harmful chemicals.

This is one of such nail polishes that never chip off your nails.

Mineral Fusion Nail Polish

The very first appealing factor about this nail polish is the soft pink color that is quite visible from the transparent bottle. When you apply it, it leaves a sheer finish and a very elegant yet stylish soft pink color on the nail which contrasts with the natural color of your skin. If your skin is fair, then this is the perfect combination.

This nail polish is not only long-lasting, but it contains chemicals which prevent chipping and hence the color stays on your nail for a prolonged time. One of the major issues addressed in this product is the thick (well, extra thick) brush that does not require you to paint your nail several times, leaving a texture behind. Everything is smooth with this brush.

Moreover, it should also be mentioned that this ‘pinky’ is not only cruelty-free, but it does not contain toluene, camphor, DBP or formaldehyde as well. The product is absolutely vegan, so you do not have to be guilty of hurting the animals as you paint your nails.

Black Dahlia Lacquer

This elegant nail polish is a mixture of indigo, violet glitter, dark blue and purple flakes which combine to give it a dark yet detailed look. It is worth noticing that the color also contains slight references to green, violet and blue, so you get a flare of almost all dark colors, perfect for evening functions and parties.

While this nail polish is cruelty-free and vegan, one of the best things is that it is a handmade product and the manufacturer is always keen to produce small batches in order to maintain quality. Due to this factor, there may be slight variations in every batch, but those are almost always negligible.

ILNP Juliette Holographic Nail Polish

Well, if you are a sheer luxury seeker, this is where your desires come to an end, at least in the niche of cosmetics and beauty. This is indeed a high-end product, possessing premium quality. However, if you look at the price, it is quite economical.

It features a rose gold color which gives a very intense holographic sparkle while leaving a metallic finish as well.

One of the best features of this polish is that it does not take forever to dry and lasts for a reasonably long period of time.

The presence of metallic flakes ensures that at the end, there is a reflective definition left on your nail so that everyone falls in love with it. Please note that even though its finishing is quite luxurious, you do not have to worry about its removal since the formula and texture allow it to be removed fairly easily.
