I've been wearing nail polish since I was 5 years old. Over the years I've tried a few brands. I didn't stray too far from the brands I knew. I didn't want chemicals or animal byproducts in my nail polish.
Perhaps you don't know what makes nail polish not vegan. Well, I didn't know either. I only knew I didn't want it on my nails. So I decided to research it. Non-vegan nail polish contains gelatin, milk, lanolin, honey, beeswax, royal jelly, and carmine. However just because it's vegan doesn't mean it's cruelty-free.
While researching for this I found out about the toxins in the normal nail polish and realize that a lot of these nail polish brands are very harmful to us when we use them. So I've put together chemical free, cruelty free, and vegan nail polish into a list.
