Inspired by The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Lettie’s Ocean – Soft turquoise holo with holo sparkle
Designed with Carolyn Chambers
Lettie is an eleven-year-old girl who just may have very well been eleven for a very long time.
"Lettie Hempstock was made of silken sheets the color of ice, filled with tiny flickering candle flames, a hundred hundred candle flames. Could there be candle flames burning under the water? There could. I knew that, when I was in the ocean, and I even knew how. I understood it just as I understood Dark Matter, the material of the universe that makes up everything that must be there but we cannot find. I found myself thinking of an ocean running beneath the whole universe, like the dark seawater that laps beneath the wooden boards of an old pier: an ocean that stretches from forever to forever and is still small enough to fit inside a bucket, if you have Old Mrs. Hempstock to help you get it in there, and you ask nicely."

Returns & exchanges
In the case of a breakage in shipping, please contact me with a photo of the damage and I will replace (or refund, if the polish is not available for some reason) the polish and shipping costs.
If you have a problem with the formulation, please let me know. Polish is an interesting medium to work with. Sometimes ingredients do weird things and while I do thoroughly test my ingredients, it's impossible for me to replicate every polish storage situation. I recommend storing nail polish in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
My customs waiting list is very long right now and I'm not taking any additional custom orders right now. I welcome any and all general conversation about nail polish and polish creation.
I will happily discuss wholesale accounts with anyone interested!
