Kure Bazaar: Eco-natural nail polish

As we become more and more aware of what we put on our skin and in our bodies, products are becoming increasingly ‘natural’ to meet our demands. One of the beauty products I thought completely unable to match its ‘chemical counterpart’ was nail polish – until now. The qualities of a nail polish are much harder to create using natural derivatives, so the achievements of new-kid-on-the-block Kure Bazaar are definitely to be celebrated. Kure Bazaar is the ‘first nail lacquer of the next generation to combine the vibrant colours of fashion with the ethics and technical innovation of a natural formula.’ Each polish contains a formula of up to 85% natural origin, whilst it’s free from toxins including formaldehyde. There are over 30 shades in the range, covering everything from a delicate nude to a deep and powerful red, and each applies with ease – there’s no difference in texture or performance than any other nail varnish I’ve tried to date. In fact, the nude shade has become a firm favourite already as it is probably one of the most chip-resistant shades I’ve ever worn. I don’t like this brand because it’s natural (I’m really not fussed about that kind of thing,) I like it because it performs while offering a great range of colour. The downside for me is simply the packaging; it looks quite cheap and the white logo does it no favours, neither does the fact that the caps don’t quite fit perfectly on the top. This wouldn’t be an issue if each polish wasn’t coming in at £14.95 – a huge price to pay for a ‘throw away’ impulse purchase like a nail varnish. Due to the price point alone I have to say this is definitely one for the natural-lovers only – I for one have got better things to be spending £15.00, most of which are emblazoned with a couple of ‘Cs’. However, I’m sure the demand for this will be huge and the dreams of natural-enthusiasts will at last be made into a reality. Grab them while you can…
