Description

Please visit our new shop at www.heathershues.com for additional products!

''Heart of the Matter" is a matte lover's dream! This topcoat is perfection if you're looking to achieve that matte look (especially awesome for polishes with flakes!)
It is 5-free and creates an awesome matte effect when applied on top of your manis!
Swatch pics show "Heart of the Matter" used over "NYE in NYC," "The Smell of Autumn Air," and "Hoodies & Hayrides."

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.
The following ingredients are in all Heather's Hues polishes:
Nitrocelluose, ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, isopropyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol, triphenyl phosphate. Each bottle also contains one or two stainless steel mixing balls.
HH polishes may also include FDA approved colorants, PET glitters, mica and/or flakies, silica, calcium sodium silicate, aluminum, tin oxide, iron oxides, FD&C lakes, D&c lakes, iron blue, manganese violet, titanium dioxide, ferric ferrocyanide, ultramarines; Holographic polishes may contain holo dust, a Spectraflair alternative, or Spectraflair.
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 [!at] 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!! You can always email me at HLW117 [!at] comcast.net, message me through Etsy, on Facebook at Heather's Hues or my Facebook group Heather's HueTpies, and on Instagram @heathers_hues.....please don't hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns!!

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept credit card payments, Paypal, and Stripe. Once your order is received, I try to start mixing your polishes immediately, so no cancellations please.

Returns & exchanges

No refunds or exchanges. I hope that you love all of your products as they are handmade with love. Please be aware that there may be slight variations in color/glitter due to the polishes being hand-blended, mixed to order, and/or caused by lighting in photos/computer monitor settings. Each and every product has been personally made and checked by me to guarantee top quality, so there are no refunds or exchanges. Before shipping, I wrap each product securely in bubble wrap so I don't expect this to occur, but if your bottle somehow breaks during transit, you must contact me within 24 hours of delivery. You must also e-mail me a picture of the broken polish and packaging. Its obviously not fair to lose a polish due to the package not being "handled with care" so I will replace polish broken during shipping, as long as you follow the procedure stated above. Please feel free to contact me regarding any other issues.
