FAQ

What methods of payment do you accept?
We currently accept debit/credit cards, Google Pay, and PayPal. You do not have to create a PayPal account to place an order but can instead check out as a guest. We do not accept eChecks as payment as it often causes a delay in processing orders.  We now offer Afterpay and Sezzle!

When will my order be shipped?

Polishes are mixed and/or poured per order so we aim to ship your order within 3-10 business days (excluding government holidays) from when your payment clears though it may be sooner.

Additonal Info

Lemming Lacquer polishes are cruelty-free and 5-free. Our polish does not include camphor, toluene, formaldehyde, phthalate (DBP), and formaldehyde resin. This polish is made with highly saturated pigments and ingredients. Our testers and swatchers usually do not report any staining but we still recommend a good base coat before application to guard against this. Swatches are chosen to represent the colors are close as possible however actual color may appear differently depending on individual monitor resolutions and color settings. Blogger swatches may show colors differently due to camera settings, lighting, etc. as well.

Materials may settle so a good roll or sitting the bottle upside down is recommended before application.

Due to mixing in small batches, each batch may have a slight variation that speaks to the handmade nature of the product. If the nail polish is a little thick for your preferences, please add a quality thinner. Do NOT use acetone to thin your polishes. Doing so will ultimately ruin your nail polish and thousands of lemmings everywhere will cry so please don't!  Bottles are poured by weight and may show a slight fill line. This also allows the polish to expand during extreme temperatures to avoid exploding bottles.

Bottles are assembled and all products are made in Rock Island, IL 61201. Do not use near open flame. Not for internal consumption. Discontinue use if any irritation occurs. Please polish responsibly. All nail polishes are full sized 0.5oz/15ml.
