The Nail Kitchen and Kure Bazaar Serve Up Clean Manicures

Last Updated on

There are plenty of cuisines in Paris serving up tasty treats ranging from fluffy, cream-filled chou and coffee to stodgy spinach and goat’s cheese tarts and everything in between. But the BVH department store in the trendy Marais district has just opened a kitchen that serves up something completely different: all-natural manicures.

Decorated with traditional French white brick shaped tiles and a wooden countertop, the salon does indeed have a slightly culinary feeling to it. The main product used here is by Kure Bazaar Paris, a natural nail polish brand that is based on wood pulp, cotton, maize, potato and wheat based ingredients – almost pure enough to eat, and with no harmful chemicals, of course.

Offering an array of the hippest shades and textures (one would expect no less in the world’s fashion capital!), there are also organic skincare products such as essential oils for nails and hand creams from the Japanese brand, Uka.

The staff and helpful, professional and bilingual, and prices are surprisingly reasonable for this area of Paris. As for the polish, it’s like any other commercial brand: relatively durable, it starts chipping after about 5 days, but the difference is, while it’s on your nails, it’s not contaminating your body with toxins like mainstream brands, and when you’re receiving your manicure, you’re not inhaling toxic fumes.

The Nail Kitchen may be a Parisian thing, but chem-free manicures are about to become a main course on beauty salon menus around the world – Kure Bazaar is already available internationally, and you can buy it online here.
