    Not only is it a more beautiful color IRL but it goes on smoothly and looks amazing! Thank you so much for great service!

    Totally gorgeous, but beware that it is quite sheer. I didn't get close to opacity in three coats so I gave up and decided to use it as a topper instead. I wouldn't classify it as a crelly (at least the batch I got), as it would not hide the nail line. That being said, the effect is beautiful! It has a ton of fire in the flakes and a gorgeous shift, like autumn leaves in a bottle. For whatever reason I can't attach a photo, but it looks amazing over an opaque olive/gray holo.

About

Creation of an Alchemist

On a weekend back in March, my mother came to visit for the Philadelphia Flower show and I surprised her with supplies for us to make our own nail polish. We both have a great love of nail polish and all things sparklie and since we are both extremely creative, I thought it would be a fun experience for us both.

As we sat at the dining room table, with bottles of glitter, mineral makeup, little bottles and clear nail polish, we began making wonderful creations. My husband, watching from afar was amused at what he saw and said "look at my little alchemists at work".

It was with that one little phrase that an idea began to form. What if I could make my own nail polish? So the process began, lots of research and mixing creations on that same dining room table. When I knew I had a product to have proud of, Alchemy Lacquers was launched.

Welcome to Alchemy Lacquers!
• I try to take the most accurate color pictures possible, sometimes monitors display colors differently.
• All Alchemy Lacquers are made in small batches, therefore there might be slight differences in bottles.
• Please shake and roll your nail lacquer once it has received as contents may have settled during shipping.
• Some settling of glitter and separation of color can occur over time; this is normal and can be corrected by frequent shaking of the bottle.
• Nail lacquers with a lot of glitter may appear thick, this is normal.
• Indie nail lacquers are generally thicker than most normal brands. This is due to the base that is used.
• If you prefer your nail lacquer to be thinner, I suggest adding nail polish thinner one drop at a time. Please keep in mind that adding too much thinner to a glitter nail lacquer will adversely effect the suspension properties.
• With some glitter nail lacquers, larger glitters may curve slightly over time. This is normal and should not effect application.
• I recommend using a good quality base coat and top coat. Some glitter nail lacquers might require additional layers of top coat for a smooth finish. I use Seche Fast Dry Top, Gelous or Glitter Food (Nail Pattern Boldness), depending on what type of nail polish it is.
