We are all made of star stuff! Over 4.5 million years ago carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms in our bodies, as well as atoms of all other heavy elements, were created in previous generations of stars. The earth has so many beautiful minerals and gemstones that were formed when these conditions all came together in just the right way. I decided to make some nail polish top coats with some of them.
This polish is a mix of two of my favorite gemstones. I've added 100% crushed moon stone and opal to this clear polish.
This is a clear based top coat with moon stone and opal powder in it and not an opaque nail polish color. The photos above show you what it looks like over different colors.
This polish is subtle and looks best over a dark color. When light hits the crushed stone powder it will reflect back with some shimmer and twinkle of color. You can see in the photos above that these minerals don’t show well over light colors. Its a bit hard to capture its beauty in photos, but It’s awesome over black and really cool over other darker contrasting shades like red or green.
You'll want to use a topcoat with this polish or it would feel gritty.
Moonstone is composed of two feldspar species, orthoclase and albite. The two species are intermingled. Then, as the newly formed mineral cools, the intergrowth of orthoclase and albite separates into stacked, alternating layers.
Opal is formed from a solution of silicon dioxide and water. As water runs down through the earth, it picks up silica from sandstone, and carries this silica-rich solution into cracks and voids, caused by natural faults or decomposing fossils. As the water evaporates, it leaves behind a silica deposit.
I claim no health benefits or properties associated with these minerals. Some hold metaphysical beliefs about them: "The Moonstone Crystal stone meaning is linked with our ancient fascination with the moon, the glowing Mandala of the sky. Call on the Moonstone crystal meaning to unlock the inner goddess that exists deep within your spirit and channel the brilliant white illumination of moonbeams shining light on your pathway to balance and harmony. Opal is an emotional stone and reflects the mood of the wearer. It intensifies emotions and releases inhibitions. Encourages both freedom and independence. Opal enhances cosmic consciousness and induces psychic and mystical visions. It stimulates originality and creativity. Helps to release anger and claim self worth, aiding in accessing and expressing one’s true self."
This polish is vegan. This polish is a limited edition product.
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".

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.
