Autograph – Marks & Spencer

Available in 14 colours, the Autograph range at Marks & Spencer is vegan and cruelty free, and a long-lasting polish you can rely on – all for just £6.

You can also filter on the Marks and Spencer website to view all of their vegan nail products, but their Autograph range is our favourite.

Woman with nude nails


Not for the faint-hearted, Zoya are perfect for neon-lovers, bubblegum beauties and fans of fuchsia. Polish starts at £11.

Barry M

99% of Barry M’s nail range is vegan, and labelled so, with collections that vary from classic to chrome, gels to grooming, and every colour you can imagine. Their Sunset Gel range is particularly good. Polish starts at £2.99.
