Nail Art in One Brush Stroke

We believe that handmade cosmetics are an art.

Our products are cruelty-free and formulated with you in mind. Polish Pusher nail color is free of formaldehyde, camphor, dibutyl-phthalate, formaldehyde resins, and toluene. The fragrances in our products are always phthalate-free. A full list of all ingredients is available to view in our "Shop Policies" section, and can also be emailed upon request. Each component is sourced from ethical providers who do not test on animals either.

About our process:

We use non-latex gloves to formulate our nail colors, stirring by hand to reduce the appearance of bubbles in our varnish. In fact, we use non-latex gloves to formulate all of our products, and we take care to use only what the FDA approves for each application. Eye shadow palettes and lipstick tubes are sterilized with alcohol prior to adding product. We ship all glass containers in boxes instead of bubble-mailers.

Thank you for choosing Polish Pusher to curb your glitter fix!

We sell 5-free and cruelty-free nail lacquer that is handmixed with FDA approved ingredients. Because of the artisan nature of our products no two bottles are exactly the same, making Polish Pushers more fun and unique!

Because we believe in a high-quality product, we test our glitters for solvent-resistance in our polish base for 4 months before they are used in any recipes. If the glitters can withstand that much time without bleeding or curling, they have passed our test and are ready for the market. This ensures that our valued customers will be able to get the most quality out of their purchases.

Returns and exchanges
All sales are final. Your order may only be replaced or refunded if significant damage occurs during shipping that renders the product unusable. To secure a refund or replacement in such an instance, the buyer is responsible for complying with these terms:

-Photographic evidence of the damage must be presented to Kati Cegla (shop owner) within 24 hours of the delivery time noted on USPS.com

-Please have your order/receipt number ready

-If possible, please provide your tracking number.

-Only contact the shop owner through Etsy (NOT through Kati's direct personal email address, not through Kik, Facebook, Instagram, or any other social media)

Only broken bottles will be refunded or replaced. Minor wear such as scuffs on the cap or label will not be eligible for a refund or replacement. ALTHOUGH WE HAVE NEVER HAD A BROKEN BOTTLE, ALWAYS OPEN PACKAGES OF GLASS CONTAINERS WITH CARE. Kati Cegla/Polish Pusher will not be responsible for any injury that occurs while opening a package.

The only items eligible for a refund are nail polish and cuticle oil IF the cuticle oil came in a glass bottle.
You can pay for our purchases with a credit card, a debit/bank card, or an Etsy Gift Card through Etsy's Direct Checkout.

It is not possible to cancel an order once it is placed. Please make sure you have every desired item in your Cart before checking out.
All nail polish orders are shipped via USPS First Class in order to comply with hazardous goods regulations. Nail polish is flammable and therefore may not travel by air.

Shipping deadlines are unique to each order. Processing time cannot be sped up by special request. Please be aware of the processing time when you place your order to avoid frustration.

Insurance through USPS is available by special request for a $20 fee. Please be aware that this may delay processing time by up to 2 weeks while we wait for your funds to come through. So far the USPS has not lost any of our customer's packages and I wouldn't recommend purchasing insurance on any order valued less than $100. However, the option is there for you to use at your own discretion.

All packages are shipped with a tracking number at no extra charge. We will know whether or not your package has arrived at your door. Be aware that since you do not have to sign for your order, the mail carrier may leave it at your door unattended, regardless of whether or not you are home. Polish Pusher is not responsible for replacing your package if it is lost or stolen in transit to your hands.

Because Polish Pusher will not replace or refund a lost package, please make sure that you enter the correct shipping address at checkout.

Polish Pusher does not ship internationally at this time. Many countries will not accept nail lacquer and it may be confiscated at customs. Other cosmetics that we make could be shipped internationally, however BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK. There is always the chance that it will not pass through customs safely and Polish Pusher will not be responsible for replacing or refunding your order in such an instance.
