About this Product
PolishPak is celebrating Indigenous Peoples Day with a new trithermal nail polish inspired by spawning salmon. Shifting from pearly silver to coral orange to rusty brown with a sprinkle of black glitter, this is a perfect late autumn shade. 100% of the profits from sales of Honor will be donated to the Duwamish tribe, to assist in their fight for the recognition and honor they deserve.
The Duwamish people occupied the area which is now Seattle for thousands of years before European people arrived. They foraged for wapato in eastern flatlands, fished for salmon in the sprawling waterways, and built canoes and longhouses from ancient evergreen forests.
All that changed when European people began logging the forests, rerouting the rivers and starting farms. In 1855 the US government signed the Treaty of Point Elliott with a number of Salish tribes, giving the indigenous peoples certain rights in exchange for the land the Seattle area is built upon. Those promises were never honored, and to this day the Duwamish people are fighting for government recognition and rights.
Voyage nail polish products are based on a ten-free formula, but the composition of thermal pigments may contain melamine. This polish does not contain dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor, parabens, or xylene. For best results use a peel-off base coat, apply 2-3 layers of color, and seal with your favorite topcoat.

*Use of Cultural Imagery:
Use of culture-specific icons such as the headdress, eagles, feathers, and diamond weave shown here are with the utmost respect to the associated Indigenous peoples. The manicure was created and worn by a Navajo nail artist who identified with the imagery. Use of ethnic imagery by outsiders is considered cultural appropriation and is disrespectful; a timely reminder as Halloween approaches.
Meet the Maker
My family has always been the do-it-yourself type. I had my hands in woodworking, sewing, and other crafts from a young age. So it was natural for me to whip up a handy travel bag for my nail polish before an international vacation in 2016! A friend suggested I should open a shop to share my craft, and in 2018 I added Voyage color changing nail polish to the lineup. I hope you enjoy my handmade goods and take them many fun places!
