3. Eco-friendly Concept
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.
4. Made in Germany
We have carefully selected our suppliers and we are so happy to be working with companies from Germany. Not only do we love supporting local businesses, we also love knowing that everyone within the supply chain works in a fair and safe working environment.
5. Top trendy colours
Two times a year, each season, we bring out 15 new colours, carefully picked according to trends and your wishes.
6. Long lasting coverage
Hate it when nails chip? Our nail polish lasts approx. 4-7 days. Make sure to use our base and top coat, reapplying the top coat 1-2 times to ensure maximum durability. To ensure healthy nails, give your nails 1-3 days of rest between reapplying.
