funkis is so excited to now be stocking a fabulous range of nail polish colours from Kester Black. 100% Australian made, Kester Black make gorgeous nail polishes that are environmentally friendly, contain non-toxic ingredients and have a CCF (Choose Cruelty Free) accreditation.
We've fallen in love with lilac toe nails paired with some 977 natural T-bar clogs. With its mix of fresh and vibrant colours Kester Black has your toes covered no matter which clogs you choose to wear.
We spoke with Kester Black director and founder Anna Ross and asked her a few questions about artistic inspiration, business advice and which colour's her favourite.
- What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I always wanted to be a fashion designer.
- How do you go about designing the colours for each season?
I use Pinterest a lot. I like colourful photos so I usually start there, then refer back to my pantone swatch book. Sometimes I even go to the paint stores and steal wads of their samples.
- Where do you get your artistic inspiration from?
Again, Pinterest is my number 1, then Instagram. I get daily emails from The Design Files too, I love looking inside other peoples houses.
- What's your favourite thing about being the Director of Kester Black?
I love working from home and managing my own time. My cat hangs out with me all day and I can cook whenever I want. I like that I can go for coffee with friends and then make that time up after dinner or whenever else suits.
- What's your best advice for creative women who want to run their own business?
I think the first two things anyone needs to get sorted when starting a business are getting a website up and running, and setting up some accounting software. I used excel for the first few years to save money and I look back on that now and think it was a silly idea. I would love to have had those first few years to be able to pull up in reports. If you can understand the finances, then I think you have a real shot at succeeding.
- Which is your favourite nail polish colour?
Bubblegum has always been a favourite but I think I am leaning more towards Lilac this season!
