Go Vegan On Your Nails

Written by Chalise Macklin

For some, an outfit isn’t complete without accessories. One of the go to items these days to express personal style, is nail polish. Fashionistas are willing to pay as much as $40 dollars for a single bottle. OPI, NARS, and China Glaze are getting some competition from an up-and-coming nail polish line, Ginger + Liz Colour Collection.


The people over at Ginger + Liz created a vegan friendly and toxin free lacquer that is gaining a lot of buzz. The polish line came to fruition from an “Aha moment”, according to co-creators Ginger Johnson and Liz Pickett.

The two felt there were limited options of opaque cremes, vivid brights, and cool nudes. Both women experienced negative reactions to the harsh chemicals in other polishes, and decided a vegan option was fesible. From their shared experience with polishes leaving much to be desired, they spent a little over a year creating their collection.

Right now, organic nail polishes are in high demand by those weary of the ingredients inside non-organic lacquers. Celebrities are big fans of the vegan polish; Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, and Queen Latifah are a few of the stars sporting this eco-friendly collection.

The duo promises their lacquer is trendy, long lasting and rich in pigment. If that is not enough to convince you to try the collection; perhaps names like Boss Lady, Caution – Can You Keep a Secret?, or Chase Me may convince you. So go out today and try it. Once you use it, you may throw out your old nail polish.
