Small-batch Nail Polish - Handmade with love in Portland, Maine!

{Maine} {Home} {Love} {Family}

Hello! My name is Taryn and I am the owner/creator of Anchor & Heart Lacquer, a hand-mixed, indie-style nail polish brand based out of Portland, Maine. I am so thrilled to share my nail polish creations with you! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

I was born and raised in Portland, Maine, with the ocean on one side and the woods on the other. I have traveled and lived elsewhere, but the state that I love has always brought me back. As I raise my family in Maine, I am constantly reminded that my "anchor & heart" is right here, in the little "Big City" by the sea.

So, what is Indie nail polish? Is it different than other types of polishes? Yes, and no. It looks, applies, and feels very similar to any other nail polish. The biggest difference is that all of my polishes are made from "5 Free" suspension bases, meaning that they are made without five harmful chemicals found in most commercial nail polishes: Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DPB), and Camphor. Anchor & Heart polishes are NEVER tested on animals. All ingredients are carefully selected and tested for quality, and procured only from companies who are also committed to quality AND animal safety!

I take a great deal of pride in providing beautiful, unique, and high quality products! Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions, feedback, and business inquiries at:

Additional policies and FAQs
{I do my best to accurately represent colors through pictures and descriptions but monitors may vary. Polishes are hand blended and made in small batches so there may be very slight variances from batch to batch. Some glitter settling or color separation over time is normal. Polishes with a large amount of glitter may appear thick, this is normal. Please shake polish or roll bottle between your hands before each use to redistribute glitter.}

{I live in a smoke free home, but I do have pets. I try to keep them out of my making and shipping areas, but of course they get into everything. I apologize in advance if a stray hair finds its way into the packing tape, etc.}
