Some GFMK readers recently ask for help finding gluten-free nail polish and remover. For many people who are gluten sensitive, nail polish is usually one of the least concerns. However, if you have the habit of biting your nails or eating with your hands, theres still chance of getting sick.

As a celiac who is extremely sensitive, I like to make sure all my makeup is gluten free. Better to be safe than sorry especially when it comes to gluten on my hands!

So, what nail polish brands are gluten free? I’ve reached out to nearly all the nail polish brands out there and put together a list of gluten free nail polish brands. I’ve also listed my favourite nail polish and remover products. So keep reading to find out!

List of Gluten Free Nail Polish Brands

Now let’s get into the list of non-toxic and gluten free nail polish brands! All the brands mentioned below are gluten free and do not contain commonly known harsh chemicals and ingredients.

Mineral Fusion

My go-to gluten free makeup brand and they have an excellent line of nail polish. Their products are made to be quick-drying, long-lasting, and are very affordable. Plus, they are 100% vegan, cruelty free, and free from all toxic ingredients including toluene, camphor, DBP, and formaldehyde.

Probably my favorite nail care and polish brand of all time. I have tried several of their polish before and so impressed with the results (check my review here). It has been pretty chip proof and holds up well for weeks at a time. Also their formula is free of harsh chemecals and 100% vegan. I always stock up when they have a good sale going on.

Is there gluten in nail polish?

Yes. A few years back, I got some nail polish top/base coat from Target, only to look more closely to find hydrolyzed wheat protein listed on the ingredients. I checked my existing nail products and found another bottle that had it as well.

Suprisingly, gluten derived ingredients are widely used in nail polish products for the purpose of moisturizing and conditioning. This is their specialty, therefore they are used in almost every nail product imaginable. A lot of nail polish removers contain wheat protein as well. Which is why you should always check the ingredients, and when in doubt double check with the company.

I hope this list has made it easier for you to find great gluten free nail polish brands. Feel free to list some of your favorites in the comments!
