Peace, Love & Polish!

Hi-yah all you Lacquer-heads! ^_^
So yes this is the official blog for Takko Lacquer!! ^_^ 
First I want to thank everyone for all the love and warm welcoming into the Land of the Lacquers & Polishes! It's been an amazing ride so far, and I'm so excited to continue onto this journey with you guys! ^_^ My shop is on Etsy right now under So I decided to open this blog to keep in touch with everyone, give updates on whats going on, and hear your voice! I promise not to bombard you guys with too many posts, I know theres many amazing bloggers out there and so much to keep up with already, so I kinda want to keep this blog short, sweet and simple. So this is some of the fun stuff you will read on here...
  • Updates on Restocks
  • Sales
  • When new colors and collections will come out
  • Blogger Reviews
  • Inspirations & Randomness (lol)
  • Takko Lacquer News
  • Maybe some nail art ;)

Ok so now some insiders knowledge behind Takko Lacquer.
So I have always had a slight humon-goid obsession with nail polish. Tee-hee! But I always caught myself daydreaming with colors I couldn't find or feeling guilty buying colors from brands that didn't believe in the same ethics as I did. After lots of research and development I decided to just go for it! Throw myself out there and create my own and share with the world! ^_^

Takko Lacquer is born in the U.S.A.
All the ingredients, pigments, base, bottles, labels, from the boxes and bubble wrap I ship in have been hunted down and made in the U.S.A. I take so much pride in this! (Please don't get me wrong my international customers, I love the world and have been very lucky to have visited many countries in 5 continents and many of my polishes are and will be inspired by different countries. I'm just very excited to share with you guys a little piece of the U.S.A. with each bottle ^_^)

Takko Lacquer is Earth Conscious
So many of the materials I use is eco friendly and recycled! My pigments and shimmers are also all mineral based. Also right now the entire collection is vegan! In the future collections all polishes will continue to be mineral based, I'm hoping to keep them vegan also but this has become the largest challenge of all. So I will make sure to always clearly have it on my listing descriptions when a color is vegan or not. I want everyone to be fully informed on each color ^_^

Takko Lacquer loves Puppies, Kitties, Bunnies, Goats, Birdies, Foxes, Octopuses, Owls, Alligators, Lions, Tigers, Bears, and oh yeah... the entire animal kingdom! ^_^
This is another important point for me, NONE (nada, zip, nothing, zero!) of my polishes or ingredients or anything, is tested on animals! I am a big, BIG, BBIIIGGGG animal lover. I don't want to harm any animals or use anything that harms them, my polishes are cruelty free! Yey!!!

Takko Lacquer is 3-Free!
No Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde and Toluene!
Lets keep our nails healthy! ^_^

Thank you all you fabulous people you! I can't wait to see what the future holds for Takko Lacquer!
I will continue to pour out my heart and soul and love in each color and bottle, and continue giving you guys the best possible service ever! Hasta the next post!

Peace, Love and Polish!
