Reformulated June 2013
Our newly reformulated Nail Polish base works just like our original base. Please note, the ingredient list is slightly different.
Our Suspending Nail Polish is the perfect blank canvas for creating your own custom nail color and have fun making Franken Polish (we've seen that term used all over the internet and just love it!) And because this is a suspending base, your mica and glitter won't sink to the bottom of your bottle. Note: while the base appears to be a milky white to light tan in the bottle it applies clear (unless you've added opaque colorants to it , of course!). We've tested this nail polish base with Bramble Berry's glitters with great results (no other glitters were tested). The suspension base will hold approximately 5 to 7.5% of glitter. This product occasionally may have a yellowish cast, it does not effect the final color of the polish in our tests.
Our nail polish base is 3-free: it does not contain Formaldehyde , Toluene, or DBP
While we haven't tested all of our micas and glitters, here are a few of our favorites:

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Cynthia! I'm so glad you like our Suspending Nail Polish Base. This base is not a high shine polish, so your best option for that shiner top, and helping your manicure to last longer, is a glossy top coat. You can add some shimmer to your polish though with a colorant like Super Pearly White Mica or Rose Pearl Mica. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Hi Victoria! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. Pouring the nail polish base requires a steady hand and some patience because it's very thick! You may try rolling up a piece of paper into a funnel and pouring the base that way. For clean up, rubbing the bottle with a little nail polish remover should help take that residue off. Also, if you are getting a recording it's because we're helping another customer. However, if you leave a voicemail we try to get back to you the same day! I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this!
