FAQ's


My nail polish has separated/thick/etc. Is this normal?

Yes. While we work hard to maintain consistency, our polishes are hand blended in small batches so it is their nature to have very slight variances from batch to batch. Some glitter settling or color separation over time is normal. Place bottle upside down for 5 minutes, then gently roll between your hands to reincorporate ingredients. If a particular polish is too thick for your preference, please feel free to add several drops of quality 5-free thinner (but NEVER acetone).

Are your polishes allergen free?

To the best of our knowledge, our polishes are nut and gluten free (why wouldn't anyone want those in nail polish anyway?) We are based in a smoke free, pet friendly environment. Though care is taken to keep pets and nail polish separate, complete allergen exposure cannot be prevented. Those with extreme pet allergies should consider this when placing an order.

What is your TAT (turnaround time)?

Turnaround time is defined as the amount of time between your order being placed, and the order leaving our office. Ready to ship items will ship in 5 business days or less until combined with a pre-order item with a longer turnaround. Pre-order TAT varies but generally takes 14-21 days to ship. Make sure to check the listing on each item to determine the exact turnaround time assigned.

Do you accept returns?

Returns and exchanges are generally not accepted. However, if you experience an issue with one of our products or items have arrived damaged, please contact us ASAP so we may assist you.

If you need your items shipped to another address, please notify us. We are not responsible for incorrect or un-deliverable addresses. The customer will be responsible for payment of shipping costs to have the item re-delivered if returned to us due to incorrect addresses.

Is nail polish safe for kids?

Children should always be closely supervised when using any type of nail polish. Nail polish is flammable. Do not use near heat or flame, use in well-ventilated area. Do not ingest.

Is your nail polish organic?

Anchor & Heart nail polish is free of 5 of the most harmful ingredients used in nail polish: DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor. With that said, nail polish must be composed of certain chemicals that allow them to harden and adhere to the nail bed. Organic nail polish does not exist because there are no known organic alternatives of these ingredients (polymers, plasticizers, etc).
