Our water permeable formulation is a major improvement on any existing breathable nail polish products already on the market. Once applied to nails, our water permeable formula allows water penetration on a molecular level. And because of the breathability and water permeability of our nail polishes, our Muslim sisters can proudly wear our nail polish too.
Our new water permeable base has in no way compromised our professional standards, ethics and company values.
Our high shine, chip-resistant nail polish is proudly made in Australia, and is 10-Free™, meaning it's free from the 10 nastiest chemicals found in standard polishes, including toluene, DBP (also known as phthalates), formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin or camphor.
All Kester Black nail polish comes with Choose Cruelty Free (CCF), Cruelty Free International and Vegan Society certifications. Our water permeable colours will be marked with the water permeable logo.
Are all Kester Black polishes now made with the new base?
Our entire colour range is water permeable, with the exception of our glitter polishes. This is because the formulation of our glitter polishes needs to be a lot thicker to ensure the biodegradable glitter particles remain suspended in the polish.
What is the difference between water permeable and breathable?
There is no difference! Essentially, if a nail polish is breathable, it's water permeable too, so water molecules are able to penetrate through its formula.
What is the durability of water permeable nail polish?
Kester Black water permeable nail polish has the same durability as all original Kester Black colours. In fact, using water permeable nail polish can help to improve the health of your nails and the quality of your manicure. The permeable base allows nails to behave naturally and grow without the restrictions of non-breathable bases.
How do I remove it?
Water permeable nail polish is removed in the same way as all original Kester Black nail polishes. Our Non-Acetone remover, Water Based remover or any generic nail polish remover product will effectively remove the polish.
Is the water permeable nail polish more or less toxic than non breathable polish?
Breathable, water permeable nail polish is no more or less chemically enhanced than any other Kester Black nail polish product.
Is water permeable nail polish water soluble?
No. Kester Black water permeable nail polishes are not able to be dissolved by/in water.
