  • Why 10-Free™ I hear you ask? The answer is simple. We strip out a lot of bad stuff. While no nail polish can ever be fully free of chemicals, our 10-Free™ brand does not contain formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, parabens, fragrances, phthalates and animal derived or tested ingredients. Kester Black has also never used ingredients ethyl tosylamide, triphenyl phosphate or xylene.
  • Clean and prep your nails for painting by wiping them down with a cotton pad soaked in Nail Cleanser. Apply a thin layer of Miracle Treatment Base Coat and allow to dry. Follow with your favourite Kester Black nail polish, coating the surface from base to tip. Allow to dry (five minutes should do it) before applying a second coat. Once dry, seal it all in with our Top Coat to prolong wear and prevent chipping.

A true nude

This is a beautiful peachy nude. It appears more orangey indoor with warm-colour lighting, but very “nude” under daylight. Candid is the first nail colour I purchased from Kester, and lasted at least four days without chipping at all (top coat and no base coat) with normal daily chores! I was so happy with it, I went onto purchasing a few more colours for myself and many of my girlfriends!

Classy pink minus the pigtails

As a light to light-medium south east Asian, this was a gorgeous pink-nude. It suits my olive (read: green-yellow) undertones very well without being saccharine. Pictured on my pinky and ring finger, alongside

Subtle & Fresh

This is the first nude colour I have ever bought & I like it! Love having my nails done but it being subtle. With a top coat Kester black lasts so well!

The best nail polish I've ever used!

I've always been a massive fan of Kester Black. All of my nail polishes are quick drying, apply really smoothly and I love that they're vegan. I've had my nails done professionally a couple times lately and to be honest, I'm always disappointed because they're no match to me doing them myself with Kester Black nail polish!
