Welcome to Kester Black. We're Australia’s most ethical beauty brand.

It’s simple – we make nail polish that’s kind on you and kind on the planet.

Founded in 2014 by designer Anna Ross, Kester Black blends ethics and beauty in a way that redefines the industry standard. Our products are cruelty free, palm oil free and vegan - always have been, and always will be!
