Our vegan values
You might have heard of vegan milk, vegan leather… but vegan nail polish?
Not only Nailkind is vegan (that means zero ingredients that are animal-derived or animal by-products), but it also contains up to 85% bio-sourced ingredients, which are a lot less harsh on your delicate nail bed. But don’t be fooled – our gentle formulas pack a serious pigment punch: from delicate neutral shades to bold brights, rich reds and pretty pinks, there’s a shade to suit every beauty fan.
You may not have realised but up until recently, nail polishes have included ingredients such as ‘pearl essence’ derived from fish scales – to give the polishes that ‘shimmer’ effect; oleic acid – a thickener derived from animal fat; as well as carmine made from boiled and crushed beetles to give them a red colour. If you don’t fancy wearing crushed bugs on your nails, then vegan polish such as Nailkind is probably what you should be looking for.
Nailkind polishes are not only vegan but also cruelty-free and accredited by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), which means no animal testing at any stage of production. (A product can be vegan but still be tested on animals, which is why Nailkind is both.)
Even better news – the ingredients in the formulas contain fewer harsh, toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, which are often found in regular polish. Instead, we prioritise mineral and plant-based ingredients derived from sugarcane, cotton and corn that won’t dry or damage your nails (and won’t pollute the environment when you come to take them off!).Are you ready to give your regular manicure session an animal-friendly upgrade?
