Nail polish inspired by Hamilton: An American Musial. 15mL
Help me tell the story of Alexander Hamilton. Each polish in this collection comes in an amber Boston bottle style nail polish bottle with a hand-pressed wax seal.
Helpless is inspired by the soft and tender beginning of Alexander and Eliza's love. From a distance it may look like just another neutral pink, but an up close look reveals that it's much more complicated. This rosy pink color is dusted with darkness and light: a glowing blue shimmer and a dark blue speckle create a unique and complex canvas. Much like the relationship of this founding father and his blushing bride.
"I have never been the type to try and grab the spotlight
We were at a revel with some rebels on a hot night
Laughin’ at my sister as she’s dazzling the room
Then you walked in and my heart went “Boom!”
Tryin’ to catch your eye from the side of the ballroom
Everybody’s dancin’ and the band’s top volume
Grind to the rhythm as we wine and dine
Grab my sister, and
Whisper, “Yo, this
A wonderful polish for all occasions, be it a first date, a grand ball or a wedding to a guy your sister also happens to be in love with.
This polish is *not* vegan as carmine is an ingredient.
My polishes are 10 free & cruelty free meaning they are formulated without: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, phthalates, fragrances.
They generally apply best with 2-3 thin layers topped with a fast dry top coat.
I do my best to accurately represent the colors of my polishes in their photos, however, there may be some differences in the items dues to screen brightness etc. Photos are never altered or filtered to change the colors unless it is needed to more accurately showcase harder to photograph colors. Every bottle is carefully hand-mixed and the best effort is given to consistency of formulas, though some color and distribution of glitters may vary slightly from bottle to bottle. Shake well to help with any settling that may occur during shipping.
For an easy way to remove glitter heavy polishes try googling the "foil method".

I accept major credit cards and paypal! Payment is due at time of checkout. If you pay with an e-check via paypal, funds must clear before Etsy will allow me to print your shipping label. Sometimes this takes a couple of days, but it can take up to a week.
Current turn around time is listed generally at the top of my page and in the shipping information on the listings. Turn around time depends on current order volume and how busy my day job is. All items are hand made by me.
I drop my packages directly at the main post office and my packages usually only take 2-4 days to arrive to you within the US. Please note that shipping to other countries can take 1 to as long as 3 weeks due to international shipping time/customs etc. These things are out of my hands, but your tracking number will keep you updated!
I HATE that I currently have to charge so much for shipping internationally. Please note that I am actually charging you several dollars LESS than what I actually pay for the labels only because I HATE having to make you pay so much and want to give you a break. USPS raised rates this year and I do realize that the shipping costs more than the bottle of polish, but please realize that I'm paying even more for that label.
