Sandstone Foraged From The Guadalupe River In Texas.
This pigment is part of the Dust To Dust collection.
We break down this pigment by hand from a whole, foraged sandstone with a mortar and pestle. The polish is naturally colored from the pigment that is broken down and 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 rock.
Naturally, larger particles will stick to the bottom and sides of the bottle and not suspend in the polish base.
For more on this process visit our Dust to Dust collection page here.
10-free. Vegan. Cruelty-free. Nontoxic.
We suggest using a base coat and 2-3 coats of polish followed by a top coat.

Like a tree planted by water, yields fruit in its season - Inspired by Katherine White (@kwhitewrites)
Depends on who’s looking - I can be a threat; I can be intense
Familial and safe on the other side
I am a force - power escapes my every essence
Oozing from my skin, a cause for joy, a cause for hate
Singing those old spiritual songs
Black is proud
Dreams do come true
Kinship and responsibility
My skin motivates me!
I think about the leaves, the flowers
The Sun feeding their beauty and mine
And you can miss that.
It’s easy to ignore, to trample the flowers, tear down the trees
I experience the best and the worst of the world
Through my skin, I see it all - I am left uncomfortable
As you seek the comfort to ignore
Acknowledge me, love me unconditionally - black is valuable
