Welcome to D&R Apothecary

My husband Don and I (Rachel, hence the name D&R :P)started off making bath & body products over 5 years ago We've made everything from cold process soaps, soy lotions, sugar scrubs, room sprays, beeswax lip balms, lip tints, candle tarts just to name a few items lol. I became bored after all the years and wanted to experiment more in the cosmetics area. Fall of 2011 I started researching nail polish and we officially started selling nail polish in July of 2012 & the obsession has grown from there :) I crave variety and creativity and thankfully I get that with my job daily :)

We ♥ and appreciate each and everyone of you!!!

♥ Welcome to D&R Apothecary home of ♥ Hit Polish Nail Lacquer ♥ :) just to clear some things up: I am NOT HITS polish, Hits Speciallita is a mass producting Brazillian company. D&R Apothecary is my (parent)company and Hit Polish is my polish line. I am in the USA and NOT mass produced...at least not yet lol a girl can dream can't she :D so to try and combat some confusion I had to add D&R Apothecary back into my branding/labeling and besides if it weren't for my husband Don (I'm Rachel) I couldn't do this :P

♥ This is my full time job :) I take this very seriously and take great pride in my work! My shop is "open" Monday-Friday 7am-3pm where I like to answer all emails asap but convo's sent after 3pm est will most likely be answered the following business day. Weekends I am generally unavailable. That is my family time and preparation time for the coming week :D

IMPORTANT INFO regarding my nail polishes:

♥ Because I pack my bottles full of glitter and use super thick base your nail polishes may be a bit on the thick side. A good vigorous shaking will help get things moving again before applying BUT if this is still a problem for you :) simply add a few drops of nail polish thinner until you get your desired consistency and your set! I do this because I would rather error in the side of caution and not make my polishes too thin then there is nothing that can be done to fix that but if its a bit thick a few drops of thinner and its fixed :)

♥ I make all my glitter polishes INDIVIDUALLY using only quality ingredients like stainless steel bb's, solvent resistant glitters, pigments and the appropriate bases.

♥ I thoroughly test my glitters BEFORE they are deemed appropriate for use. You will not find bleeders here! I have researched and tested products for 9 months BEFORE I began selling these polishes. Glitters sit for a MINIMUM of 1 month in my base before getting the ok to use. I didn't rush into this to make a quick buck. I spent the time, and the money to provide you with professional quality polishes! While none of my glitters are bleeders some do give off a "reflective" curl. This does not impact the polish or truly curl it just simply give more reflective quality to that particular glitter.

♥ Please note MINOR SETTLING will occur and is perfectly normal with time, so this may effect fill lines.

♥ There is a bit of controversy regarding bar glitters. Bar glitters along with any larger glitter "can" sometimes curl up. I have not had any issues with the bars I use BUT if you do, this can usually be fixed by a couple coats of quality top coat.
