Our Story

Functional, clean beauty starts here— packaged in pink and thoughtfully curated.

After working as a nail stylist and consultant for major nail brands over the past 5 years, Lauren Yavor, the creator of popular nail blog Lauren’s List, started elle polish when she noticed a gap in the market; nail polish mindfully created using quality ingredients that are vegan, cruelty-free and clean, while still being functional and fun.

We offer a simple, healthier alternative that you can feel good about wearing. elle polishes are all developed and hand-crafted in Los Angeles, CA with ethically sourced ingredients and are poured into our high quality reusable glass bottles. Every shade is carefully curated by Lauren, and individually tested for the perfect opacity and finish.

After years of sorting through the hundreds of nail care launches that end up on her desk, Lauren’s become a pretty tough critic. “When I started elle, I set out to make clean, eco-conscious nail care products with effective ingredients and stylish colors, all while looking pretty on your vanity.” - Lauren Yavor
