About GreatLakesLacquer

Sales 1,859
On Etsy since 2015

Fluidly flowing; like water and lacquer.

As a nail polish lover myself, I wanted to share my creations with those that are also interested in unique varnish created through a moment captured in memory, whether it be of that of the scenery around us, the people in our lives, or a collective shared experience in our culture. I felt so strongly inspired by those different things that I needed to capture them in color.

I hope to continue to grow in my polish making skills, changing with the trends while staying true to myself and the unique vision that I bring. I hope you enjoy that journey with me. <3

Welcome to Great Lakes Lacquer! I strive to create unique and beautiful polishes with an easy to use formula. It is my mission to bring you colors that transport you to a place or envoke a feeling or memory. I do my best to source ingredients that are cruelty free and never test on animals or unwilling participants. My bases are 4 or 5 free as well.

At this time, I accept Paypal, major credit cards, and etsy gift cards. This is subject to change at any time.

Please be aware that I am required to charge sales tax (6%) to Michigan buyers.

If you need to cancel your order, I will do so if a shipping notification has not been sent.


Please ensure that your shipping address in Paypal is correct. If payment is by Paypal, I will ship to the address listed in Paypal. Otherwise, please ensure your address is correct on Etsy as I cannot be responsible for lost mail that was sent to an incorrect address.

All orders are shipped from Lansing, MI. Shipping times will vary. Please allow at least a week for delivery within the US, two weeks for Canada and Mexico, and 30 for other internationals.

International shipping: please note that I cannot be responsible if a package is lost or taken by customs. While lost packages rarely happen, it can on occasion. If your package does go missing, please contact me and we will work something out. I strongly encourage international tracking so that we can both have peace of mind but realize it is expensive. All US packages will include tracking.

Additional policies and FAQs

While I keep concise records of all recipes and adhere to them precisely, batch variances can occur. It is the nature of handmade polish.

At this point, I am open to custom requests. Pricing will vary based on ingredients and the time put into the creation of your request but does start at $16. Payment is required up front. I reserve the right to use some form or variation of my work in future collections. If you would like to ensure your creation stays a one of a kind, we can discuss that.

I am willing to discuss wholesale accounts at this time.
