The Essentials Set (Basics)

Transparent Base & Top Coat + 1 Colour

A base coat, a top coat plus your favourite colour is an essential set for anybody who wants to have a flawless vegan manicure. It’s the perfect starter kit for any Kia-Charlotta first timers or an amazing gift for someone you love.

The secret to a long-lasting manicure is the top and base coat. The base coat acts as a sort of "glue" and helps the nail polish to stick on your nail. The top coat on the other hand not only gives more shine to your beautiful nails but also acts as an extra layer, making it harder for your nail polish to start chipping.

Eco-Friendly Nail Polish

Whilst a nail polish can never be 100% natural, recyclable, and/or biodegradable, we have done our best to create the most eco-friendly version of a nail polish that we could. We did this by creating a nail polish which is:
- 100% vegan & cruelty-free certified by "PETA" & "The Vegan Society"
- Made with 100% plant derived solvents (free from petrochemically derived solvents)
- Microplastic* free formula (incl. styrene/acrylates copolymer)
- Made with up to 87% natural ingredients
- Filled in 5ml bottles in order to create less nail polish waste
- 15 free formula. Our nail polishes are free from the following ingredients:
Phthalates (incl. Dibutylphthalate (DBP), Diethylhexyl Phthalate (DEHP)), Toluene (also Methylbenzene), Xylene, Camphor, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Ethyl Tosylamide, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Triphenyl Phosphate, Colophoneum, Organic Halides (AOX), Parabens, Silicone, Fragrances, Animal Derived Ingredients

Additionally, our nail polish shades don’t contain acrylates copolymer or any other liquid or solid microplastics*, Benzophenone-1, Benzophenone-3 or gluten.

For Best Results:

We recommend two thin coats of nail polish to get the best opaque result. For an extra long-lasting manicure, we recommend applying a base coat before the nail polish and a top coat afterwards.

What’s in our nail polish and why?

ETHYL ACETATE – A solvent which helps keep the nail polish liquid in the bottle but evaporates when on your nails so that the nail polish is able to harden. Ethyl acetate has a fruity smell but in nail polish it smells slightly stingy and potent. The solvents in nail polish are what give nail polish it’s typical smell. Ethyl acetate can be petrochemically derived or plant derived. In Kia-Charlotta nail polish shades it is 100% plant derived.

BUTYL ACETATE – Another solvent which helps keep the nail polish liquid in the bottle but evaporates when on your nails so that the nail polish is able to harden. Butyl acetate also has a fruity smell but in nail polish it smells slightly stingy and potent and also gives nail polish it’s typical nail polish ”smell”. Butyl acetate can be petrochemically derived or plant derived. In Kia-Charlotta nail polish shades it is 100% plant derived.

NITROCELLULOSE – A film forming polymer which, once the solvents have evaporated, hardens on your nails and forms a hard film on top of your nails. In order for nail polish to solidify as well as last long on your nails, it needs a film forming polymer and nitrocellulose is one of the safest as well as best quality film forming polymers.

ADIPIC ACID/NEOPENTYL GLYCOL/TRIMELLITIC ANHYDRIDE COPOLYMER – Film forming polymer. With nitrocellulose, this ingredient helps keep the nail polish hard and smooth on your nails as well as helps with longevity.

TRIETHYL CITRATE ALCOHOL – In nail polish this ingredient is used as a plasticizer. Plasticizers make nail polish more flexible and increase their durability. They help make the nail polish less prone to cracking or chipping.

STEARALKONIUM BENTONITE – A thickening agent which helps keep the pigments suspended and helps maintain the smooth and thick consistency of the nail polish.

DIACETONE ALCOHOL – a solvent which also helps give a glossy finish for the nail polish.

MALTOL - Maltol is a naturally occurring organic compound which is often used as a flavoring agent. In our nail polish however, we don’t include maltol for the flavor, but for something quite different. Maltol has proven to significantly minimize the formation of nitrosamines which can be formed in very small amounts from nitrocellulose. This is a great impact which makes our nail polish even better than before.

PENTAERYTHRIL TETRAISOSTEARATE – a liquid emollient which increases viscosity and gives the nail polish its shine and gloss.

PHOSPHORIC ACID - a mineral acid which is used to control the pH of the nail polish

PIGMENTS - these are what give the nail polish their colour, shine, shimmer and/or metallic tone. Pigments are denoted with their CI numbers. Metallic, glitter or shimmer shades may also contain mica.

Eco-Friendly

Whilst a nail polish can never be 100% natural, recyclable and/or biodegradable, we have done our best to create the most eco-friendly version of a nail polish that we could. Not only are the solvents in our nail polish shades 100% derived from plants (instead of petrochemically derived) but we also do not contain any styrene/acrylates copolymer (often referred to as a liquid microplastic) which you will find in almost all other nail polishes whether conventional or more natural. Additionally, we have made the conscious choice to use 5ml bottles so that we can minimize any unnecessary nail polish waste. Finally, we do not use any plastic in our secondary or delivery packaging and only use FSC certified and/or recycled paper.

We believe that when it comes to nail polish, Kia-Charlotta nail polishes are pretty much on of the most eco-friendly options you can find.

Premium Quality

At Kia-Charlotta our mission is to create 100% vegan make-up and nail polish products in premium quality meaning we do not compromise and try to find the perfect balance between quality and safe/natural as well as vegan ingredients. Although we stay away from the most harmful ingredients and animal derived ingredients, we promise there is no compromise when it comes to quality. Our nail polish last in average between 4-7 days and they have a beautiful opaque glossy finish.
