Many nail polishes, while gorgeous, may contain harmful chemicals or animal products. Some are even tested on animals. However, at Sheer Lust, we are devoted to creating beautiful all-natural nail lacquer that is free from animal products, is not tested on animals, and does not contain harmful chemicals. We pride ourselves on creating luxury nail lacquer that is 100% vegan. Learn more about what makes our lacquer so great!

Sheer Lust is proud to be 5-free and non-toxic! We do not include the following harmful chemicals in our nail lacquers:

  • Formaldehyde is a nail hardener that can cause irritation of the skin, eyes, nose, and throat; it is also linked to cancer.
  • Toluene is known to cause cancer and birth defects.
  • DBP is linked with cancer and fertility problems.
  • Formaldehyde resin is a combination of chemicals, including formaldehyde gas, and a skin allergen.
  • Camphor is made from the wood of a camphor tree and can cause nausea, dizziness, and headaches.


While these chemicals are still legal to use in the US, other countries have banned them from cosmetics. Regardless, our nail lacquers avoid using these harmful substances and are non-toxic so that you get the highest-quality manicure without risking your health. Because our products are 5-free, they are safer to use on children.



Many companies test their beauty products on animals before testing them on humans. Some of these products cause animals to suffer and even die. We don’t believe in testing our products on animals; but that doesn’t mean that our products aren’t tested. Each of our products are carefully researched, analyzed, and tested for quality assurance.

Sheer Lust Vegan Nail Polish


Not only are our nail lacquers not tested on animals, but they do not contain any animal products either. Many nail lacquers and polishes contain animal products like fish scales, which help create shimmery and metallic shades. However, the use of these ingredients is not obvious to the user. Labels like pearl and guanine are actually made from fish scales and skin mixed with oil and acetate. No need to worry about these mysterious ingredients with Sheer Lust lacquers.
