It's more likely that their top coats will have animal derived ingredients than their actual product. I'm pretty curious aswell, since I absolutely adore nice neat nails.
I'll search the web and see what I can find.

I found this reply to a letter on the internet, it's for "Creative nail design" products.

Creative Nail Design creates products from a combination of chemicals,
vitamins, and botanicals. Creative Nail Design is animal friendly as well
as environmentally friendly. We are diligent in our research and
development of totally safe products and take great pride in providing the
finest quality products to professional nail technicians and consumers.
There is no need for any type of animal by-products in our products as
these are "chemical" treatments. Also, since these products are not made
for use on animals they are not tested on such.
Please feel free to contact us should you have any additional questions or
needs.

Thank you for making this a Creative day!

Sincerely,

Candace Smith
Hotline Technician
Creative Nail Design


I also found that "No professional nail adhesive is made from animal by-products"

I would just go talk to a technician, they probably use all different brands. Just...  don't go to one with a language barrier. tongue

That's alright, they should have a brand that they use, so you can do some reading up on it anyway.
