Looking for a greener way to paint your nails? And no, we’re not just talking about the colour of your polish.

A new nail bar which claims to offer the UAE’s first “eco-trendy” manicures has just opened in Dubai.

French beauty brand Kure Bazaar was founded by Brazilian-born model Kartika Luyet.

When she was expecting her first child, she became conscious about what she was putting in her body – and that extended to her cosmetic choices, all the way down to her fingertips.

“Cosmetics have come a long way and today we can find a variety of natural options, but it’s unbelievable that an alternative of a classic nail polish – which would guarantee longevity and have a range of great shiny colors too –  is still difficult to find,” she said.

Luyet teamed up with one of her best friends, who happened to work in the cosmetic industry, and together they worked to create a line of natural, non-toxic nail polishes.

The product formula contains mostly natural ingredients, like wood pulp, cotton, maize, potato and wheat. It’s not tested on animals, and is free from formaldehyde and other toxic ingredients found in most nail polishes.

The new nail bar is located on the ground floor of the Le BHV Marais department store in City Walk. Its signature treatment is a manicure ritual where hands are treated with organic barley, aloe vera, and avocado extracts before polish.

You can also snap up the nail polishes at Galeries Lafayette in The Dubai Mall, and Comptoir 102 in Jumeirah.
