Nail polish can add colour to your look, complete an outfit and uplift your spirits on grey days. Applying it is a ritual to pause and rest while the paint dries.
Zao nail varnishes are the most sustainable we've found and from a brand that is making a big effort to cut back on chemicals and to use sustainable packaging. From a French manicure, to a classic look or seasonal colours, we stock the complete palette.
All these nail varnishes are '10 free' (with the exception of colours 663-665 which are being reformulated at the moment). This means that 10 known toxins traditionally found in nail polish have been replaced in Zao varnishes. With no toxic ingredients and enriched with silica from bamboo oil, you can use them without limitation. In these varnishes petrochemical solvents have been replaced with agro-solvents from potatoes, corn, manioc and wheat.
Choose from 28 different colours. You'll find shades 641-675 and a top and base coat on our website. We have most of these ready to send and, if you see 'pre order' next to a colour, that means we'll order it in and you'll receive the product in 1-2 weeks.
Zao nail varnishes are cruelty free, vegan, and palm oil free. Each nail varnish comes in a 8ml glass container with a bamboo lid. The brush is made of plastic, as this is the only option currently available for nail varnish
Zao beauty tip
Apply one or two coats of nail polish, depending on the desired effect. Add a top coat varnish for a glossy finish.

Pre-order items are products that are out of stock, but that we will order in for you. This takes 1-3 weeks depending on the supplier. When you order a pre-order item alongside products we have in stock, we will wait till the pre-order item is ready to send the parcel together. If you want to receive the other products earlier, just place two separate orders.
