Mani Monday: 6 Indie Vegan Nail Brands You Need to Know About

Here at, we’re determined to give our readers what they want. For some, that means the latest and greatest product launches at Sephora, and for others that means the cutest feline inspired makeup products money can buy. Then there are those who search for vegan nail polishes that are as pretty as they are environmentally conscious, AKA, polish that’s free of toxic ingredients and animal biproducts but doesn’t sacrifice the quality of your manicure. The point we’re getting at: You don’t need to be a dedicated vegan to fall in love with these vegan nail polish brands. In fact, their unique packaging combined with their wide range of colors might just make some of them your new favorites. And for optimum results, pair your new nail polish with vegan makeup brands.

See all six nail polish brands we’re loving, ahead.  

The brand you’ve never heard of but need to know about…

What makes B’Livinn nail polish especially unique is the fact that the packaging of each product has empowering designs and messages. First, you choose your packaging, and then you select the nail polish shade you want. The one we can’t get enough of right now is Glitter Taupe.


For the gal with impeccable taste…

The sleek packaging of CONTEXT Skin nail polish will make for a well-deserved spot on your makeup vanity. Two best-sellers that we’re planning on coveting immediately are a peachy neutral shade of Take It Off and a mauve pink shade named Slow Down.


To create your ideal Instagram flatlay…

Since packaging is nearly as important as the quality of the product itself, we’re in love with Flora 1761 for its flower engraved bottle and array of floral-inspired shades. The polish even comes in a gold-foiled box that’s perfect to gift to your beauty-obsessed friends, or yourself.


For nearly five-star reviews across the board…

100% Pure nail polish is beloved for avoiding the top 10 toxic nail polish ingredients while still getting the quality and color payoff of traditional polishes. Three of the brand’s best sellers include Jam, Velveteen and Soul Mate


For long lasting nail polish that’ll cost less than lunch…

Sparitual nail lacquer comes with a rubber top to give you an easy grip for when you’re applying the polish to your nails. The brand divides their nail polish into a variety of different collections such as Beach Ready, Nurture and Laugh.  


For colors inspired from Fashion Week…

Kim D’Amato, the founder of Priti NYC, opened Priti Organic Spa in 2005 when she was having a hard time finding conscious, organic beauty. The Priti NYC brand works with various charities and is also a sponsor of fashion week to create custom nail polish colors for renowned designers.
