The Complete List of Indie Nail Polish


The complete list of Indie Nail Polish Brands

Updated: October 2018

*Please help support this list and the indie polish shops listed by sharing this within your FB Nail Polish related groups, blogs, twitter and any other social media you can think of! <3*

On this page, I will keep a complete list of all active and up-to-date indie nail polish brands in alphabetical order for you.
It will be updated as I go on and hopefully you will find this list helpful and discover some new awesome polishes. Listings will link to the indie nail polish brand website and/or etsy shop.

Side Note: “Indie Nail Polish Brands” refers to nail polish brands/shops that are independently owned as in not owned by the larger mainstream brands such as OPI, Essie, Sally Hansen, etc. Typically these polishes are handmade and/or operated from home or small lab.

I will keep this list as complete as possible but if I have missed any, please feel free to let me know either through the comment box below this page or email me!
