"The Real" With KolorsbyK
Founded in July of 2016, KolorsbyK was inspired by the lack of representation of women of color in the beauty industry. We see the products, we see the models, but how many of them are truly wearing products made BY women of color? Not many.
I saw a space that needed to be filled and if I might add, I love nail polish so this was a perfect fit for me. I came home one day from purchasing some nail polish and I thought to myself, “I could have saved so much money if I learned how to safely make this for myself. With a background in Environmental Science I was always cautions of the products I used on my hair, skin and especially nails.
I started looking up the chemical components and saw how dangerous some of them were EVEN when used in small doses on just our hands and feet. I said to myself “if I can figure this out without all THESE chemicals I could be on to something” and that’s when KolorsbyK was born. The more research I did and the more information I came across regarding the chemicals in nail polish so many of them had been linked to cancer. I was completely appalled and knew I had to do something not just for women of color, but ALL women.
I believe every woman deserves to wear a nail polish that is working towards her health and not against it. I am excited that you have checked out KolorsbyK and hope that you will continue with me on this journey.
