***WHY CHIA SEED OIL?*** Chia seeds are rich in essential fatty acids. Bursting with omega-3, chia seeds are also rich in protein, zinc, fiber, and many other vital minerals, antioxidants, and nutrients. I decided to use chia seed oil because it has incredible skin hydrating properties, it heals damaged tissue/skin cells, it has anti-inflammatory properties, and the fatty acids strengthen nails and improve their resistance to breakage and damage.
*Apricot Kernel Oil-absorbs into the skin without leaving that yucky greasy feeling, contains fatty acids and Vitamins A, C, & E which are all great for the skin and nails
*Fractionated coconut oil-easily penetrates and absorbs into the skin, an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, also high in saturated fats, incredibly hydrating and promotes softer skin
*Avocado oil-naturally hydrating, super moisturizing; penetrates deep into the skin and stimulates production of collagen, improves skin softness and elasticity, high in Vitamins A, D, & E
*Sweet Almond oil-contains a wealth of minerals like zinc, Vitamin E, B-complex vitamins, postassium, proteins, and fatty acids necessary for healthy skin/nails; a mild, light oil that absorbs well
*Rosehip seed oil-rich in essential fatty acids especially Omega-6 and Omega-3, fast-absorbing, perfect for hydrating skin and nourishing, strengthening, and moisturizing brittle nails
*Vitamin E-natural antioxidant and moisturizer, prevents water loss from the skin and helps retain its natural moisture, nourishes nail cuticles, prevents nail breakage and dryness, repairs cuticle damage due to acetone/polish

I always use the highest quality cosmetic-grade ingredients from reputable suppliers for my polishes. Each and every polish is hand-mixed by me personally in a clean and sanitary environment. Almost every polish is made to order. I usually only mix large batches of polish a day or two prior to new collection releases.
Indie polishes are quite different from mainstream polishes. They are made and bottled with love! You'll find there is many more beautiful options when it comes to types of indie polishes. There are also some helpful hints that apply to indie polishes. First, you should always let your bottles of polish reach room temperature before opening them (especially in cold weather months). Next, please ALWAYS use 2 or more coats of a quality basecoat before applying polishes. ***DUE TO THE HIGH PIGMENTATION OF SOME POLISH COLORS, NAIL STAINING MAY OCCUR*** (This is why using a quality basecoat is so important). Also, you may find it helpful to set your bottle of polish upside down for about 10 minutes before use, then roll it around in your hands. ***SOME OF THE HEAVIER GLITTERS MAY SETTLE TO THE BOTTTOM OF THE BOTTLE*** This is why the upside-down trick is helpful...it will reduce the amount of fishing for glitters, especially the heavy glitters. A quality topcoat is also recommended to help deter wear to your polish and smooth out large glitters. Finally, please feel free to offer feedback to me. As an indie maker, I love to hear what my customers love, don't like, would like more/less of!!
