Metanoia-(6 Year Anniversary)
[meh-ta-noy-ah] (n.) the journey of changing one's mind, heart, self, or way of life; spiritual conversion
Six years ago, I was still in the early stages of getting my life back. Prior to HH, I was in a very dark place and had been struggling with personal issues for years. When I started making polishes, I was less than two years into my new life and still working on figuring out who I was. One thing I knew without a doubt was that I love to create beautiful things and started pouring my energy into the world of indie polish. I tried nail art and I was horrendously awful at it (I'm pretty sure there are blackmail-worthy mani pics on my old personal Instagram account) Anyway, the past 6 years have definitely been a journey...HH and the indie community have helped me to grow professionally as well as personally. My heart, mind, and spirit have developed into something beautiful because of the polish world.
"Metanoia" is a black jelly packed with multichrome flakes in teal-purple-pink and violet-blue-red, iridescent flakes in purple-green-blue and clear holographic glitter.

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!!
