Autumn Nails: Kester Black Buttermilk and Uslu Airlines NMA

I was recently given the chance to try some nail polishes from Kester Black and Uslu Airlines by Australian retailer – who specialise in niche beauty and lifestyle products.

Prior to this I hadn’t tried either brands before, although I had heard great things about Kester Black from I was very impressed by the formula of both polishes- they both applied so evenly and lasted an incredible 3-5 days before any noticeable chipping.


Kester Black ‘Buttercream’ nail polish looks just like what you would expect from it’s name. Buttercream is a beautiful neutral milk coffee nude, which is almost opaque in two layers- as shown in swatch above (there is a slight translucency to the colour), and completely opaque in 3. The colour applies evenly with no streaking. I’m always overjoyed when I find a nude polish that doesn’t streak.

Kester Black is an Australian niche nail polish brand. All their polishes are  ‘Five Free’ (no toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin); cruelty free; and vegan.

Price: $17/ 15 mL



Uslu airlines is a Berlin based high end beauty company. Their products are named after airport destinations (I love this idea), and the shade  NMA is named after the Namangan airport in Uzbekistan.

I chose this shade because a deep burgundy colour is my staple nail polish shade- so I’m always on a lookout for a good burgundy that has the sophistication of Butter London La Moss (but with a faster dry time and better chip resistance). This one is beautifully formulated – holds up much better than the Butter London one, and is a gorgeous shade.

Price: $29/ 11mL
