We love a pretty manicure, but it is hard to justify using chemical-laden polishes. So we were delighted to find a line of natural and lovely polish shades. They are safe for everyone: kids, pregnant women, even persons with cancer. And when paired with their special Base and Top Coat Sealer, these colors stay on until you take them off, even with constant hand washing. Meet Kapa Nui Nails.
Safe For All
It is not that we don’t use a well-placed chemical within beauty, but when possible, we always try to find other options. Especially on our hands.
These vibrant pretty Hawaii inspired shades are safe for all. They are kid-safe and pregnancy safe.
- 3- Free,” “5, 7, 9, 10, 12 Free,”
- PETA Certified vegan
These polishes are made from carbon, nitrogen, and water. It degrades back into naturally occurring forms of these elements. No plastics or polymers.
“Inspired by the Beauty of Hawai’i”
The range includes 33 polish shades. There are sand tone nudes, ocean blues, greens and teals, and vibrant pinks and purple orchid shades.
We tried the Starter Set. It contains:
- Three Starter size bottles (9ml) of your favorite colors.
- Kapa Nui Base & Top Coat (15ml)
- Kapa Nui Remover (1 oz)
- Manicure Sticks x5
- Re-usable Remover Pads x5
- Custom cosmetic bag
We tried three Big Island-inspired shades:
Pua Melia is a soft-matte pink with a cream finish. This semi-sheer is buildable to semi-opaque in 2-3 coats. One coat is a creamy pale.
A lustrous pastel pink with pearly shimmer. Evocative of the pink hue inside of conch seashells.
Sweet Wahine is a creamy violet with some sheen but not pearly or shimmery.
Base & Top Coat Sealer
The sealer is key to a long-lasting, high-performance manicure. This dual functioning layer provides tight adhesion of your color layer as a Base Coat and as a Top Coat Sealer, gives your color longer life with 2 to 3 times more chip resistance.
For a long-lasting, gel manicure look, apply Base & Top Coat Sealer in thin layers and let set for 60 seconds before applying 1-2 coats of color. Seal with a final top coat.
There is no odor.
Non-Toxic Nail Polish Remover
A cruelty-free gel that contains no acetone or alcohol.
The gel formulation is suitable for travel and there is no unpleasant odor.
We like the fine pen tip nozzle for post-polish application clean up jobs.
Kapa Nui polishes are odor-free and they wear like a gel or lacquer.
The shades are vibrant
The brush applies a smooth, even coat.
