Pastel lime green nail polish

This pastel lime green nail polish is inspired by the clean-up crew our founder Anna grew up with, in one of the cleanest, greenest (most pristinest) places in the world; New Zealand. In NZ, kids are praised with ‘Clean Kiwi’ awards for picking up rubbish in the playground, and now you too can be praised for choosing ‘Clean Gene’; a nail polish that’s kind to the planet.

From raising pups to rescuing rabbits, Anna’s nature-focused ambitions were crystallised from a young age. The importance of our environment sits central to Kester Black’s DNA, forming all those years ago in Hyde, Central Otago – where green rolling hills and farming communities are commonplace.

Fast-drying: No need to eat lunch with your elbow
High shine: Apply base and top coat, admire the perfection
Serious staying power: More chip resistant than a wellness blogger
A cinch to apply: With our french-tip brush, you've got this
Mix and match: Work it back with a rainbow of 50+ shades

Clean Gene is a limited edition nail polish that reminds us of our nostalgic upbringing in New Zealand’s leafy landscapes. Made in Australia. 14 ml/0.5 fl.oz.

Why 12-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 12-free brand does not contain formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, parabens, fragrances, phthalates, animal ingredients, ethyl tosylamide or triphenyl phosphate.
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 Supersonic Top Coat to prolong wear and prevent chipping.

Amazing colour

Such a gorgeous and unique colour, more subtle than you'd expect but I've gotten so many comments too! Only needed 2 coats to be completely opaque.

New favourite shade!

I was so excited to receive this shade and it did not disappoint. It's an acid green, with full coverage in 2 layers, though I still went with 3 layers. Gorgeous colour, however my top coat (not Kester Black) altered the shade just slightly, making it more neon yellow.

Clean Gene was one of two shades I ordered (pictured leopard spots are in the shade Raspberry) and I'm very excited to purchase more Kester Black polishes!
