How do you make nail polish?


We get this question often.  Gridlock Lacquer nail polishes are all made from a 5-Free Base base which eliminates Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toulene, Camphor and Dibutyl Phthalate.  This creates a nail polish that doesn't contain the toxic combination of chemicals that are often included in commercially sold nail polishes.  As all polishes are hand mixed, slight variations from batch to batch will occur.  Gridlock Lacquer only purchases supplies from distributors and manufacturers that are cruelty free, meaning that the components have not been tested on animals.  Additionally, all components are procured from domestic distributors and manufacturers in an effort to create a product that is truly Made in America.
