*** Every month I create a special duo of polishes based upon inspiration pictures submitted through and voted on in my Facebook group. You don't have to be a group member to order the monthly duo, but if you'd like to take part in the creation of future duos, please join at www.facebook.com/groups/HeathersHueTpies
November's duo includes "Caramel Cider" and "Rainiers" which can be purchased individually or as a duo set. This listing is for the individual bottle of "Rainiers"
"Rainiers" is a tri-thermal polish that shifts from red (cold) to yellow (warm) with orange in between. It's filled with red-copper-gold-green iridescent shimmer and glitters, and red-orange-gold multichrome flakes.

*PLEASE NOTE: Thermal polishes should always be stored in a cool, dark place to maximize their color-changing abilities. Thermals do have a shelf life meaning they may possibly stop changing colors after 8 months (a lot of mine are still changing after 3+ years) so please be sure that you love all transition colors! I do make thermal polishes to order to ensure that you'll get the longest possible transition ability from them.
All of Heather's Hues polishes are vegan, cruelty-free, and 5-free. This means that they do NOT contain 5 of the harsh toxic chemicals that many mainstream polishes do. The 5 nasty chemicals that are NOT in H.H. polishes are DBP, toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, and camphor.

Nitrocelluose, ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, isopropyl alcohol, and ethyl alcohol. Each bottle also contains two stainless steel mixing balls.

IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS OF A SPECIFIC POLISH, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME! I can be reached by direct message on my Facebook and Instagram as well as by email. My email address is HLW117@comcast.net.
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!!
