Have you ever thought about an (almost) non-toxic, ethical nail polish? Probably not, but YES, they do exist. We love beautiful, polished nails, but hate the harmful chemicals that most nail polishes contain. We also hate the dry, soft, flaky and often broken nails they leave in their wake.


Good news! We have found an amazing cruelty free, ethical nail polish brand with divine colors, fun color-names and a visually inspiring instagram: check the KB insta here. Kester Black literally colors our life… we are obsessed!  Anna Ross, Founder of Kester Black, and literally 'friend of the brand', our brand ;), aims to produce high-quality products that have a positive social and environmental footprint.  



Nail polish is one of these products that still can’t be produced 100% natural. So our job is to find a nail polish for you that reduces toxic ingredients to an absolute minimum. You may have seen other ‘natural’ polishes advertising that they are 3, 5, or 7 free. This is actually the number of how many toxic ingredients they have removed from the classical nailpolish formula’s. Kester Black nail polish is 12 free!


Kester Black is free off: formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, parabens, fragrances, phthalates, ethyl tosylamide, triphenyl phosphate and animal derived or tested ingredients. They stay far away from nasty ingredients such as: palm oil, parabens, sulfates and petrochemicals.  



When you put nail polish on your nails you also have to remove it. Kester Black has developed an acetone-free nail polish remover that gives your nails a little extra love. Most nail polish removers are primarily made from acetone, usually nail polish remover can have a drying effect on your nails and leaves them flaking, peeling and splitting.


The Kester Black remover is free of acetone, and solvents to make sure your nails stay beautiful after using nail polish. This remover contains Almond & Jojoba Oil to  moisturise & strengthen your nails. Cool fact? Without the acetone, your Kester Black remover doesn’t have a too aggressive smell to it. Kinder to the planet, your nails, and your nose!
