All of the gel and gel-like polishes listed below are 100% cruelty-free and vegan. If I’ve left any off the list, please lemme know in the comments below.

    Thank you for this post! It’s so great to find this info :) also there’s an awesome cosmetic brand that is all cruelty free and vegan, they have great nail polish, OCC Cosmetics (obsessive compulsive cosmetics). I love their lip tars, they used to be pro but I think they may be at Sephora now.

  2. Hi Sunny, please check out my GelMoment gel polishes. We are vegan friendly, no animal testing so cruelty free, 5 free, gluten free, practically odorless and best of all just one coat gel polish that needs no base or topcoat so only 60 seconds under LED and yes still a salon quality 14 day high gloss finish

    Have you looked into/tried Butter London gel-like finishes? I’m a loyal BL fan and have tons of theirs polishes since they were one of the first CF vegan brands I tried. Been wondering about the gel products I’ve recently seen. Thanks!

    CND is owned by Revlon which is not CF. On another nail tech blog they said Bluesky is a knock off of CND and will relabel the bottles with their own logo.

    This is awesome, I didn’t know any of them were vegan. I have to give it a try!

  6. Sal says:

    Gelicure is my fave! I use it in my little home salon and I picked it because it’s vegan and CF.

  7. Tasha says:

    That’s amazing. Thanks!
    I have emails from Bluesky that state they are also CF if you wanted to check it out/add to the list.

    Love your blog I shall definitely be reading this all the time now!!

    Also there’s a great company called fairypants that do vegan nail varnish (you probably know this already but mentioning it just in case) I’ve got a bottle and it’s been fantastic!!

    Thanks so much for this list! I had tried doing my own research a while back and couldn’t find real answers anywhere on this topic! I was left thinking basically my only option was CND Shellac. I’m especially happy to hear that Gelish is cruelty free because whenever I’ve gotten a gel manicure, even when I’ve picked a different brand, they’ve used Gelish as a base (which had frustrated me when I was misinformed!).

    Lauren B Beauty makes a nice gel-like topcoat.

  10. Jessica says:

    OMG, thank you for this post!!! Have been holding off on buying gel polish because I thought none of them were vegan!

  11. IzzyP says:

    Thanks for this list! I gotta try gel polish – haven’t yet cause I haven’t been able to find any CF options.

    OPI though – I thought they sold in China? I (personally) don’t consider them CF anymore because of that. Also the parent company thing, but I know that’s a personal choice that everyone has to make up their own minds on :)

    (PS love your blog, read every day!!)

      Hi Izzy, you’re absolutely right. OPI does sell to China, making them not CF. Also, thank you so much for the loyal readership. You’re way too sweet! xo
