About BLUSH Lacquers:
BLUSH Lacquers is an Indiana based nail polish brand established in the summer of 2016.

All BLUSH polishes are 5-free which means that they have no camphor, toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or formaldehyde resins. All of our currently stocked polishes are vegan, cruelty-free and come in 11ml screen printed bottles.
Our polishes are intended for cosmetic use on the nails only. Any other use of these products are not recommended.
All polishes are handmade and mixed in small batches using quality ingredients that are cosmetic grade. Due to this handmade quality, there may be slight color variations from batch to batch. However, every effort is made to ensure that the batches are as similar as possible to each other.
While we always try to represent our polishes are accurately as possible in our photos, please be aware that due to lighting conditions, monitor differences and even differences in skin tone, polishes may appear differently in real life than in the photos.

Storage & Use:
-After receiving polishes, please allow them to return to room temperature before applying.
-Polishes are best stored in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight.
-Shake bottle thoroughly before using to properly redistribute pigments and glitters.
-For best results and to prolong your manicure, use a quality base coat before application and a quality top coat after application. Polishes containing glitters may dry slightly textured and may need a thicker top coat for smooth results. Some highly pigmented polishes may cause staining if a base coat is not used.
-If you prefer a thinner consistency to your polish, use 1-2 drops of a good quality nail polish thinner (do not use nail polish remover, as this can damage the polish).
-A special note about glitter polishes:
Sometimes, during shipment, glitter may stick to the sides of the bottles. This is perfectly normal and will not affect the use or application of the polish. Even though it may appear that a lot of the glitter is clinging to the sides, it is typically a very small portion in comparison to what is still inside the bottle. If it bothers you, there are a few things you may try:
-Shake the bottle or use a nail polish/paint shaker.
-Turn the bottle on the opposite side the glitter is stuck to, or leave upside down for 24 hours. (Make sure cap is tightly secured.)
-Take a small magnet to the side of the bottle and connect it with the mixing ball inside of the bottle. You can use the magnet connected to the mixing ball to dislodge some of the glitter stuck to the side. CAUTION: Do not use on or over the label as some strong magnets may remove the lettering or the label completely.
-A special note about thermal polishes:
Thermal polishes contain thermochromic pigments that react to the temperature of your body and the temperature of the environment around you. They are best stored in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight. Exposing polishes to excessive heat may damage it’s ability to change colors. If you are having trouble getting your thermal polish to change colors, try placing it in your freezer for a few minutes to revive it. Even when stored properly, thermal polishes may lose their color changing ability over time. The shelf life of thermal polishes lasts anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. After a thermal polish loses it’s ability to change colors it will typically “die” in it’s cold state color or a combination of the cold and warm state color. This will vary depending on how the polish was kept. Even after a thermal polish has lost it’s ability to change colors, it is still perfectly usable as a regular nail polish.
