7/13/16 Update:  We now offer 5 fluid ounces at the old 4 fluid ounce price! TKB's Nail Polish Luster Base is a cruelty-free, 5-free bulk nail polish base used to DIY nail polishes where you add pigments, micas and dyes.  It is a creamy base with a slightly yellow hue.
  • Ingredients: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Acrylates Copolymer, Stearalkonium Bentonite, N-Butyl Alcohol, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Silica, Alumina, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate.
  • When adding pigments, dyes and micas to an uncolored base there are a couple of tricks.

    First, don't "overload with color".  For a single bottle of nail polish, you really don't need more than about a "pea-sized" amount of pigment, dye or mica added.  Too much color and your nail polish will not dry correctly and it will tend to peel off.

    Secondly, it is always a good idea to "wet" the pigment or dye with rubbing alcohol before adding it to your polish, otherwise you run the risk of the polish being gritty.

  • Would you say the luster base needs a longer dry time than other polishes, even the glamour base ? Mine seems to be staying 'goopy' a long time.

    Sometimes the problem with the goopy is that the customer has added too much pigment to the product.  Try applying it uncolored first, and get a feel for it it seems right to you.  You can thin it down a little bit with a clear coat polish.  The amount of color to add would be about 1-2 "pea size" per full size bottle of 15ml.  Sometimes customer add a lot of color, thinking to make it "one coat cover", but a lot of powder makes the product thicker, and slower to dry.

  • It looks like this and the glamour base are both actually 7, 8, and 9-Free (and what some consider 10-free with it being cruelty free). Just curious as to why it's not labeled like that, since it could potentially increase the customer base.

    I guess that we are behind the times.  We've never been asked about 7, 8, 9 or even 10! 

  • Is this vegan?

    Yes, it is.

  • Hi , does this product can be used to make glittery eyeshadows?

    No, this should only be used for nail polish.
