The Indie Love & Light project is a collaboration of indie makers working together to help build friendships and encouraging a positive, inclusive, and loving indie community. There are 3 projects; Charity, the Positivity Collab, and Random Acts of Kindness. (Join the Facebook group for more information and to be a part of future projects! https://www.facebook.com/groups/ILLproject/)
The Random Acts of Kindness polishes are mystery polishes offered for $10 shipped in the U.S. (International customers can message me for a $3 discount code in place of the free shipping)
Is there someone you know who needs a little extra kindness in their life? If so, you can send them a RAOK mystery polish. Please be sure to include their shipping address. (If you don't know it, you can email or message me and I can try to help find it.) If you would like me to include a note, please leave it with your order.
If you don't know who to send to, you can purchase RAOK polishes and I will randomly select from the nominations I will be taking.
If there is someone you'd like to nominate for a RAOK, please email me at HLW117@comcast.net. I will randomly choose recipients from the nominations for;
1) if someone purchases a RAOK bottle but doesn't know who to send to
2) to send some love and light to that person myself

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!!
