Kure Bazaar is an example of a brand who not only have great attention to detail when it comes to their nail polish formula, which is up to 90% natural, with ingredients derived from corn, potatoes and bamboo! But also being very fashion forward in their colour selection and with gorgeous packaging. The days of gentler more natural formulas being a bit drab are long gone!
Kure Bazaar nail polishes have been some of my favourites for a long time, after a few years of not having much time to paint my nails as a busy mum, I have been trying hard to change that and it always amazes me what a difference a splash of colour on my nails can make to how I feel. A good nail polish really does make me feel more pulled together!
The Kure Bazaar formula is as close to 100% natural as you will get, whilst still enjoying the longevity and performance of a regular nail polish. There are other options, including water based polishes, but in all honesty my experiences have been mixed and whilst I am a big fan of peel off polishes for tweens who are just dabbling in make up on the weekend, I personally need something with a little more longevity. A few years ago I had my one and only gel manicure and the damage done to my nails was just awful, they were left brittle and dry. So now I only use gentle nail care products and stick firmly to doing my nails at home. The Kure Bazaar formula is ten free; free from toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, synthetic camphor, TPHP, parabens, xylene, styrene, nano colours and benxophenone 1-3.
The polishes come in a variety of finishes, from sheer to opaque and the colour selection is one of the best I have seen from any nail polish brand with such a clean formula. The more opaque colours look great with two coats and dry quickly. I never bother with a base or top coat, although I should probably start doing so! I can still get 4-5 days wear from these polishes on the nails. The brush isn’t too wide which makes application relatively easy. Some of the sheerer colours can look a little streaky if you rush, but with more opaque colours this isn’t an issue at all.
Colours as seen above, left to right:
Sunset – Sunset is really wearable for spring and summer, a nice deep rose tone. This is a new shade for spring. I think this one is my favourite!
Cosmos – A pretty baby pink colour, I got lot’s of compliments when I wore this, again a nice new shade for spring. Very fresh looking.
Or Rose – A beautiful metallic rose gold colour with a touch of sparkle. This colour looks gorgeous on fingers and toes. Great for a dressed up look.
Dolce – This is a sheer dusty rose colour. Good for everyday wear and if you just want a hint of colour and shine.

Kure bazaar nail polish is vegan and cruelty free. They are not the most affordable brand I have tried, but I absolutely adore the formula, colour selection and packaging. I truly think they give other high end (non natural) brands such as Chanel and Dior a run for their money. You can shop the range at Love Lula* who stock a great variety of natural and organic brands.
