What is ‘indie nail polish’?

‘Indie’ stands for ‘independent’. It means that I create and promote my products by myself and they are not related to any big brands or companies. My products = me! ūüôā

Is it really hand-made?

Yep! Every single bottle. The process is very precise and I write down every slight change I make to the nail polish formula. That way I’m sure to make every¬†bottle of the same color similar to each other.

My mixing room looks somewhat as a chemistry classroom: every drop of pigment, every milligram of glitter can change the polish to something completely new.

Testing is a big part of this all and I try out each new polish I make because I need to know what I’m selling to my lovely clientele.

How do you come up with new colors?

The whole idea behind Daria’s Nails and DARIA¬†NAIL PAINT is Creativity. Be creative, have fun!¬†I find inspiration everywhere: sometimes it’s in nature, sometimes in a dessert I ate for lunch, or a movie I saw.

You should try it too. Look for things that inspire you to do interesting things or make you happy.

Is it 5-free and cruelty-free?

Yes. All my polishes are made of 5-free products. It means they do not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde & Dibutyl Phthalate(DBP), Camphor, Formaldehyde Resin. My nail polish base provider also is a certified-cruelty free provider. I never test any of my polishes on animals (though my cat needs a manicure! just kidding Рhe is fine with his claw-scratcher:)).

Do I need to know anything before buying?

Remember that these polishes are hand-made. It means there might be slight inconsistencies in colors shown on the photo and the actual polish. I do my best to make sure they match, but mistakes happen. So do read the description to understand what is the actual color and polish formula. Blue-greens are the most difficult colors to photograph so they show a bit too blue in pictures.

If the polish is glitter-dense it may be a bit sticky on application. It’s better to apply thinner layers in this case.

If glitter particles are big your polish will dry with a slight texture. If you like it – keep it as it is. But if you want it smooth and glossy, better to apply a layer of a top coat.

Some polishes are a bit sheer so you’ll need about 3 coats to make them opaque. Or you can always layer them over a cream polish of the same color.
