What is suspension base? 

Suspension Base is the main ingredient in nail polish (i.e. the liquid stuff). Suspension base can be used with glitters, pigment, micas or in combination of any of these. The base allows the glitters to suspend, so there is no "sinking". Suspension base is a flammable substance, please store in a cool, dry area, away from heat, sparks, and flame. Always work in a properly ventilated area with appropriate safety wear. For a list of ingredients please refer to the individual listing. For further details, please refer to the "Info & Safety Precautions" section.

What does 5-free mean?

5-free means it is free of the following ingredients;

NO Camphor 
NO Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) 
NO Toluene 
NO Formaldehyde 
NO Formaldehyde Resin


Are all your bases 5-Free?

Yes, the Creme, Matte, Suspension, and Color Bases are all 5-free.

What is the difference between the Creme & Suspension Base? 

The Creme Base is used for micas and/or pigments, whereas Suspension Base is used to create glitter polishes, however it may also be used for mica & pigments. The ingredients in Suspension Base allow the glitters to suspend without the dreaded "sinking" factor.


Can I use craft glitter in the suspension base? 

If it is labeled as solvent resistant, yes. Solvent resistant means a glitter has been tested to withstand being dissolved (i.e. turning into goop, or disappearing) in a solvent. However, it is still recommended to do your own testing as certain sizes and finishes of glitter may still experience curling, bleeding and fading.  


Can I use the Color Base as nail polish?

We wouldn't recommend it as they are a bit thick. Their primary use is to add coloring to the suspension base.
