What makes Lights Lacquer polishes unique is that they are not only beautiful and distinctive but also free of toxins. Their Seven-Free formula is created without toxic chemicals such as Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, TPHP, and Xylene, which are common in many other polishes.

This formula makes for a polish that is both safe and beautiful. Lights Lacquer brings nostalgia, timelessness, and unique, luxury color curation to create quality nail polish that is long-lasting and easy to apply. Every shade of Lights Lacquer is carefully curated by Kathleen and her diverse team, drawing inspiration from her vast knowledge of makeup, color theory, the world around her, and trendy Pantone colors of the season.
