About our Polish
What is ten-free?
MJ Lacquer uses a suspension base that is considered "10 FREE".
10-Free polish does NOT contain:
- Formaldehyde Resin
- Ethyl Tosylamide
The ingredients used in our polishes, come from US manufacturers who do not test products on animals.
Additional Polish Information :
**Please note that shades can appear slightly different on different monitor screens.
**Please store polish away from direct sunlight, to preserve longevity. It is normal for polishes to thicken over time. When this happens, add a few drops of polish thinner and roll the bottle. Sometimes shaking may cause air pockets.
**It is recommended to use a base coat and a top coat for optimal and longer lasting results of your polish.
Prototype polishes are limited edition polishes that are similar or slightly different from the standard collections. Some may have a little to much of an ingredient. Some may have not enough of an ingredient. For whatever the reason, these polishes did not fit into a main collection. However, they are all handcrafted with the same 10 Free, Vegan, and Cruelty Free standards, as all of the other polishes. These polishes will not be restocked when sold out.
A couple things to think about before buying a thermal polish.
When purchasing a thermal polish, be sure that you like both hot and cold shades. When the thermal properties are no longer functioning, the polish will stay in either the cold or hot state.
Thermal polishes are temperature sensitive.
Triple Thermals -This type of Thermal changes to show 3 different colors. First color change occurs around 82 degrees Fahrenheit , and then again at 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Although with triple thermals, the third shade, is often very subtle .
Color to Color -Thermals will change colors around 86 degrees Fahrenheit, and warmer.
Color to Colorless -Thermals will change from color to colorless, around 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
Thermal polishes have a shelf life. Most manufacturers say you can expect the color change to work up to a year. However, many thermal polishes last far beyond a year.
******STORAGE IS KEY******
Keeping Thermals exposed to extreme heat and direct sun over time will create a "sunburn" and eventually cause it to cease changing color. They should be stored away from direct sunlight and in a cool dry area, like the majority of nail polishes.
Thermal polishes change colors, based on your body temperature. The manufacturer states that when your body temperature reaches 86 degrees and warmer, the thermal polish will change to the "hot" state. Triple Thermal polishes will change twice. A subtle change occurs
