Kester Black - nail polish giveaway!

I am SUPER EXCITED about this!!

Gorgeous Anna Ross makes a brand of nail polish called Kester Black that is cruelty free, carbon neutral, ethically produced, carcinogen free, made in Australia, vegan and non toxic.

Sounds too good to be true, right?!

Well it gets better. Kester Black nail polish is high shine, chip free and right on trend with all the latest and greatest summer colours.

I know, right!!


When Anna contacted us and asked if we wanted to try out some of her gorgeous range we quickly replied with a great big YES! My girls love a bit of sparkle and polish, but we are always nervous about all the icky stuff that goes into the cosmetic products and the not so ethical production methods.

To be able to paint my girls' nails in polish that is not only safe for them but for the environment is winning all over.

(Do you like my attempts at fancy cup cake nails?)


After we tried and fell in love with Kester Black (even I have blue toes), we asked Anna some questions.

Where did the name Kester Black come from?
I was holidaying in the Queen Charlotte sounds (New Zealand) with some family friends about 6 years ago and we took their boat out to find a nice sheltered bay to swim in. I was taken to St Kester Bay and the only house in the whole bay was owned by a priest. St Kester Bay is the most beautiful place I have ever been to and I wanted to use that in my name. A few days later when we went back to the same bay, there was a group of people there who were dressed head to toe in black. And that's how my name came about.

Which is your fave shade to wear?
My all time favourite is bubblegum.  

Which celeb would you fan-girl over if you saw them wearing KB?
Kimbra. She is awesome. I think she is a few years younger than me and she's a kiwi too. She also does a lot of volunteer work and supports a lot of different charities.

What book are you reading at the moment?
I am reading two at the moment. Eating animals by Jonathan Safran (what an eye opener) and another business book called the E Myth by Michael E. Gerber. It's a business book about why most small businesses don't survive. 

What is your fave food?
White rice. I love it. If I could eat it every day I would. I was in Japan for a month a few years ago and my Japanese friend taught me how to make the best sushi rice. 

Coffee or tea?
I don't actually drink either. I have just got on the soy hot choc band wagon though!  

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a fashion designer. I did get a degree and work in the industry for a while, but I realised it wasn't really for me.

What is your dream for Kester Black?
I would love to have a small team that work for me who are really passionate about making high end ethical beauty products. I am currently researching into how to grow my brand from where it is, and think the next step will be to expand my product range. 

I'm not going to write my guide for ethical gift giving but if I did, Kester Black would be right up the top. We are such big fans on so many levels.

And now for the fun bit. Anna has kindly offered to send THREE of you guys her entire range of 15 summer colours!!

That's three prizes of 15 colours each. Amazing right!
Sorry Australia and New Zealand residents only.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below and please make sure I have a way of contacting you. We'll draw the winners next Wednesday and Anna will express post the packages so they will hopefully arrive before the big day.

Yay!

  4. OMG, I'd forgotten about Kester Black. Saw and coveted the shades a while ago, but can't remember why I didn't quite click buy. I think all the yummiest colours were sold out after the nail art book came out.

  5. I am ashamed to say that as a NZer I haven't seen this brand before. My daughter and I would love to win some - imagine our Christmas nails. Thanks for the chance.

  7. If ever there was a reason to dig the soil from underneath my nails and stay out of the garden for a day or two... and get pretty...these nail polishes would have to be it! A bit of colour co-ordination with my favourite flowers (forget me nots) seems in order... oh Kate, why do you have to review such cool products?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I have also found it HARD to find a polish that ticks ALL the boxes for me and my 3 girlies...gonna check these out whether I win a prize or not!!!
    Thanks Anna and Kate. AmyXx. amy.jenkin@bigpond.com

  26. Oh, these are STUNNING! I have a 19 year old niece who is nail polish obsessed, and has taught me to be the same - I've even grown my nails just so I can buy nail polish! I'm heading over to check out her shop now. Thankyou for sharing, and for the lovely pictures (as usual).

  27. I often go to buy these polishes but end up getting overwhelmed by the amazing choice of colours and scuttle away.

  30. Totally cool idea! And considering how I 'eat' my polish pretty much the day after I put it on (bad habit!) - non toxic is a fantastic idea!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Im the only female in my household, so I make sure I pamper myself from time to time and add a little colour into our otherwise very blue dominated wardrobe of school uniforms and work wear. We all need a little colour in our lives :)

  32. I absolutely love Kester Black! The colours are so vibrant and opaque - perfect for my current nail art obsession. And 5-free! I'd love to win :-)

  38. what an amazing giveaway!! I love my nail polishes, can't ever have enough funky colours to do mine and my 2 daughters nails.

  39. My Lottie will think that Christmas has come if I get her some of these polishes (wait a minute..). She LOVES nail polish. If I attempted your snazzy cupcakes, she's probably faint dead away with the ecstasy of it all. x

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh wow, winning these polishes would be so choice! Just got into Kester Black, and not only is it ethically amazing, but performance wise too. Dreaming of all the fun that could be had given that I gave my buddy the nail art handbook for Christmas... sarah.liz.turner @ gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow what a great product! I would love to give these to my little girl who is almost 4 and loves nail polish but I refuse to let her wear any cos of all the nasty stuff but this I would happily give to her! I can totally see us with goreous ethical nails this summer x thanks for the chance

  42. Oh wow. I used to wear nail polish all the time but haven't since I got pregnant and became hyper-aware of icky chemicals. Summer toes just aren't the same without it, though.

    Thanks Kate and Kester Black for the fab giveaway. Happy solstice!

    ReplyDelete
  43. What a great idea...I think ethical cosmetics/body products is really important, but it's HARD to know what's what in the zoo out there.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wahh these are amazing! And the cupcake nails <3 ashton.rigg@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have often wondered if there was such a thing as ethical nailpolish. I use it in Summer on my toes. It would be great to introduce my nieces to this brand- at least two of them are vegetarian/vegan so they would be very into it. I have 3 boys and I know it wouldn't be their thing :-)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Nice learning more about you, Kate. This is a great prize! Thanks for the opp. Fingers (which will hopefully be sporting some new Kester Black shades) crossed! :)

  49. Ooooh would love to win this one, I am wearing Kester Black "parrot" on my toes after treating myself to a new bottle of polish - I had a hard choice deciding as they were all so gorgeous. They make a great gift too.

  50. Gorgeous blog and great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh my goodness, what a stunning range of colours and sparkles too! Love the fact that they're environmentally friendly and non toxic. Count me in please!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Gorgeous colours and such a generous offer and quite a coincidence because today I trend to send my grand-daughter Ivy ( who lives in Melbourne) a range of nail polishes for her birthday. I took the parcel to my New Zealand post-office but they wouldn't let me air-mail them because they are inflammable. So, if I were lucky enough to win I'd want them to go to her

    ReplyDelete
  53. My nails have gone bare for so long. I too worry about all the icky things in nail polishes so I am happy to hear about Kester Black _ and the fact they are an Australian product just icing on the cake.

    ReplyDelete
  54. wow haven't worn polish in forever - this may yet turn me into a lady now that polish exists without all the toxic crap - great vibrant colours too!

    ReplyDelete
  55. my girls adore nail polish...gorgeous colours and being Aussie made and no nasties is a bonus!

    ReplyDelete
  56. What a wonderful giveaway Kate. I have begun to make the move towards more 'eco' friendly cosmetics but always liked the polish on the toes and struggled to give it up! Very happy to hear about Kester Black and look forward to trying them.

    ReplyDelete
  57. How awesome is the nailpolish to be all nice and safe and know that it is cruelty free is a huge bonus. Yvonne

  60. Wow what a great giveaway Kate, fantastic colours and environmentally friendly. Good you and your girls got to try them out. Hadn't heard of Kester Black before and would love to win to give to my daughter. If not will have to buy her some.

  61. These look gorgeous! I have a 3yo son who loves rainbow toes and 3 nieces who love quirky, ethical treasures. We could certainly share the eco love with such a large range of colours. What a great product Anna and thanks for sharing Kate! lenkos33@gmail.com

  62. This is so exciting! My best friend and I would make such good use of this, we change our nail polish multiple times a week! We are running out of colour choices now though... (emilyy.s@live.com)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Yay a contest New Zealanders can enter, what a great product, love all the colours, so bright and happy, and what fantastic values the company has definitely will be buying these for me and my 2 daughters and recommending to everyone

    ReplyDelete
  64. As a chemically sensitive mum I can't let my 15yo and 6yo daughters try nail polish as the fumes overwhelm me. I know they'd love to wear something safe that won't make mum feel sick. Thanks for offering a competition, good luck everyone! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oooo! Ooo! OOooh! I have just made an advent calendar for my girlies (under inspiration of some friends... if I had a blog I'd say.... see here! Maybe I'll change my photo to show you!) anyway, one of my friends activities is for every member of the family (including the dog!) to paint their toenails all different colours. We wanted to do this too but only have 2 nail polishes (of the Butter fame) at $20+ a pop, more colours seemed a bit outrageous on our budget. But imagine the outrageousness of the creations that could be created out of the Kester Black summer range! Pure colour chaos!!!! And Australian made to boot! <3 And ethical, and eco friendly, and, and, and..... we have loads of toes and fingers to paint with love and cupcakes and..... anyway. Yes please! annshar7@yahoo.com.au x

  67. I don't paint my nails very often, being a mum of two boys. But I recently gave myself a mini pedi and painted my toes bright pink! I had forgotten how fun it is to have a little splash of colour no the tips of my fingers and toes. I love the idea of being able to have that PLUS know that it is ethically produced.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Oh how awesome. My daughter has just started to express an interest in painting her nails, and I haven't yet as I was worried about chemicals etc. This is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  69. These look so lovely! Your cupcake design is super cute! I can imagine having a lot of fun with all those colours with my cousins on Christmas Day :) would love to win!

  71. Thank you for this review. After years of painting my nails on a weekly basis- I put a stop to it all about twelve months ago when it hit me what nail polish was full of and how it's ethics weren't aligning with mine. I have since been polish- free as I couldn't bring myself to wear anything that compromised my health and the health of other living beings and the environment......but still felt a little sad to miss out on something I once really enjoyed....but now....there's an answer!! Thanks Kate and Anna!!

  81. Hells yes please!! Painting my 2 yo' snails is the only way she'll let me cut her toe nails. They grow over the ends of her toes (thanks daddy) so cutting them is a bit of a nightmare!! I often feel guilt over the cheap nasty polish I use, but budgets are tight and I can't let her toe nails cut if her toes lol.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Wow Kate, this is awesome and the fact that I have 3 girls makes this even more of a winner, although I think that the nail polish would run out quicker than I could blink. Thanks for the chance.

  89. We love Kester Black in this house, which I bought for the reason that my 11 year old wanted to paint her nails, and I was concerned about the chemicals and nasties in nail polish. I bought myself 2 shades to share with my girls. Love the colours and a bit if sparkle of course. My 11 year old daughter actually has Kester Black nailpolish on her wish list this Christmas. Yep, shades requested and all. I enjoyed reading your interview with Anna. I look forward to the Kester Black range expanding. kirsty@repurpose.com.au

  90. Wow nail polish that doesnt chip and comes in 15 different colors and is good for the environment sounds wonderful Kate. I normally dont wear nail polish anymore because as soon I wash the dishes it normally chips off. Isabelle on the other hand is a nail polish wizz and would love it (and I could try it too). It sounds like a fantastic chance to try some really neat new stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Oh, I like that. I work with environmental volunteers and some of them (including me) are slowly approaching the age where you need reminders. A colourful pinkie reminds you to make time for daily exercises, to contact friends and don’t stay lonely, send happy thoughts in the universe. I’d like to win the Kester Black nail polishes to give them away to these volunteers that do so much good.
    Cheers

  105. Thanks so much for explaining about this nail polish! I was shopping for my nieces the other day and came across it and almost bought them some, but stopped because I didn't know anything about the brand. Now I must go back and get some for them - they will love it, and I will too knowing the story behind it. P.S. I would love your list of ethical presents suggestions too! xx Sandra (s.hocking@optusnet.com.au)

  108. What a fantastic product! (I know I'm not allowed to win) :( I stopped wearing nail polish for several reasons, but the main one was that it was such a yucky, chemical filled product tested on animals. So nice that there is a feel good version out there, but that still won't help that I don't have the time in my day to wait for it to dry!

    ReplyDelete
  109. What a great giveaway! I've seen these and love that they are so ethical and not produced by a multi national company. I haven't bought one yet as I have a tight budget at Xmas time but they are definitely on my wishlist! Thanks Kate and Kester Black xx (leanne.roach8@bigpond.com)

  117. I've always bitten my fingers nails. My mum was constantly trying new ways to stop me. Even throughout my adult life, my nails are usually chopped or broken or picked right down. But throughout my pregnancy my nails have grown long and strong. I've been wanting to paint them but an weary of the chemicals etc. these colours are just stunning, so perfect for summer!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Thanks for the information, I've seen this nail polish around, and was wondering if it was a no nasty ingredients one, which all I will buy these days, especially for my little girls. Now I know it is, I'll pay more attention to where I've seen it! Thanks for the chance, what an awesome prize!

  119. Oh boy, I cant resist!! I've been searching for exactly this for my two possums and, Kate, your concerns about chemicals etc are mine too. What luck to stumble across such a perfect give away! And what gorgeous colours! Thank you so much for the chance. x

    ReplyDelete
  120. Oh yes please!!!!! I've always been wary of nail polish (it just can't be ok, with a smell like that, can it?) and have therefore never worn it. Being a little older and needier in the beautifying department now and having girlies that are wanting to wear some pretties, makes me very thankful that some folks are doing something towards creating a non toxic version. Thanks for the opportunity to try it out.

  121. I wore a Peach shade of Kester Black to my wedding two weeks ago. It looked great, but I was most impressed it lasted a week after the wedding. As a Kinder Teacher with hands constantly in glue, paint, play dough and a sandpit, I was amazed it stayed on and didn't chip. Now with school holidays coming, 15 shades would be fun to play with!!!!

  133. Very cool! Girlies would love all this x

  134. Wow those colours are amazing. I too struggle with letting my two 9 and 11 year olds wear nail polish yet at the same time feel like they fit in with others. Kester Black looks so vibrant and with goodness of knowing that you can feel good about letting them use it. I would be the coolest Mum ever if I presented this at Xmas time. Thanks Kate for the lovely giveaway. Leanne

  135. I haven't worn nail polish, perfume and a lot of make up for over 12 years due to chemicals so Kester Black sounds great. Just one question, what about the polish remover? That can be worse than the actual polish. Wishing the best of luck to the company and its creator!

  167. Never heard of Kester Black - and would be really keen to give it a run. After a few decades hiatus I've recently started back on nail polish as compensation for not being able to knit, but I am a bit nervous about the toxicity to me and the world.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
