5 Clean Nail Polish Brands To Have On Your Radar
All products on this page have been selected by our editorial team, however we may make commission on some products.
Best For Skincare-Infused Formulas
Habit Beauty focuses on non-toxic ingredients, like myrrh extract, and combines them in its multitasking, kind-to-skin formulas. Every shade in the range is designed to be universally flattering – plus, the products are certified organic, cruelty-free and vegan. Finally, it’s the only make-up brand based out of the US that uses recycled plastic packaging as well as FSC-certified paperboard boxes –it even uses bamboo bottle caps to cut down on its plastic use.
Best Halal-Friendly Brand
When husband-and-wife team Ibrahim Ali and Iqra Isphahani spotted a gap in the market for Halal-friendly beauty products, 786 was born. Developing formulas that fit religious and cultural requirements – while still being safe to use and of the highest quality – the brand is now certified as vegan and cruelty-free. We love how detailed each colour description is on the website.
Best 10-Free Formula
The natural formulas from premium French nail care brand Kure Bazaar are already a firm favourite among top models and beauty insiders alike. Quick drying and easy to apply thanks to the specially designed brushes, these nail colours are also described as ‘10-free’ – which means they’re made without ten of the most common chemicals found in other nail products.

Best Gel Polish
Regular readers will know how much we love Manucurist. Its products are formulated with up to 84% bio-sourced ingredients – including potato, corn, cassava and cotton – and the formula is also ‘9-free’, cruelty free and vegan. Check out the innovative gel range, which is formulated without toxic ingredients but lasts just as long as a regular gel manicure in the salon.
Gitti’s aim is simple – to make conscious and sustainable beauty products that come in sustainable packaging. After learning that some nail lacquers use insect and fish scales to add to the pigment, the brand’s founders set out to find a safer and kinder way of working. All Gitti’s nail colours are 19-free – meaning they eliminate 19 questionable ingredients and replace them with better alternatives.”
