Dust To Dust Collection: 

We break down these pigments by hand with a mortar and pestle. This polish is sheer but builds up beautifully. It will have texture as well as larger pieces of pigment present in the polish finish. Each batch will have slight color variations as we use different parts of the source material. This polish contains a small amount of earth mica to enhance the natural color.

Naturally, larger particles will stick to the bottom and sides of the bottle and not suspend in the polish base.

  • Amethyst: Amethyst foraged from Unaweep Canyon, Colorado
  • Cornflowers: From our home garden
  • Green Opal: Green Opal Stone foraged from Winnemucca, Nevada
  • Wildflowers: From a meadow in Texas
