Acquarella Nail Polish

Options, options, options...with 49 color choices you'll be hard pressed to find something you don't love in this bright, bold and funky line that has virtually no odor when you apply.

Tenoverten Nail Polish

Full of bright bold hues you'll be excited to flash around town, this lovely line is chip-resistant and made only with toxin-free ingredients so you can rest assured you're promoting future healthy nail growth as you kill the manicure game. 

JINsoon Nail Lacquer

A patented double formula gives you the long lasting wear you crave. Polymers and resins ensure that this polish sticks around, and UV filters protect against fading and yellowing – this posh line is one you're sure to give ten fingers up for. 

Vapour Organic Beauty Vernissage 5-Free Nail Lacquer

This one's got all the bells and whistles: It brushes on smooth as silk, dries quickly so you won't ruin your manicure right after you walk out the door, has non-toxic ingredients to keep your nails healthy, and gives you a high-gloss finish. 

Zoya Nail Polish

Color us unsurprised, but Zoya has quite the collection of shades. If you can't find a color you like, you might be color blind — look into that, because we want each and every shade. They also last for days and days without chipping, giving you a reliable wear every time. 

Priti NYC Nail Polish

We love the autumnal selection of polishes in this toxic-free line that makes for a great gift — the holidays are approaching (we know, we know, but really they are) and a full set of five polishes is an excellent stocking stuffer for a gift that keeps on giving.

LVX Vegan Nail Polish / Lacquer

For intense shine with no chemical component, snatch up these long lasting, chip resistant polishes that are the epitome of luxe, and won't bring any toxic energy to your manicure. The brand is dedicated to bringing high fashion to your manicure, and they've nailed it. 

RGB Nail Color

 Great for when you really, actually need your manicure to last for more than a few days, these RGB polishes do the trick and then some. Plus they're vegan and cruelty free, with the added benefit of containing no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin and camphor. 

Smith & Cult Nail Polish

Substances you don't want in your nail polish: formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl. Keep it natural with Smith & Cult, whose wide range of shades and textures will keep you coming back for more and more. 

Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish

As manicurist to the stars, Deborah Lippmann knows a little something about catering to good taste, which is why we love her line of musically-inspired polishes that are, of course, non-toxic. Plus, she's the reigning winner of InStyle magazine's award for Best Beauty Buys 2015.
