• What is 5-FREE nail lacquer? - 5-FREE is produced with NO formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor, or DBP, which are harmful chemicals often present in nail lacquer. These chemicals can cause health problems ranging from skin irritation, asthma, possible birth defects and cancer. 1898 House nail lacquers are also free of parabens, xylene, and ethyl tosylamide, which are damaging chemical compounds often found in nail lacquer. There is no need to risk one's physical well-being in order to paint nails. 

  • No testing on animals? - Of course not! Only humans road-test the colors here. 

  • What is a blind box? - A blind box is a fun way to get a suprise in a snazzy package. Our boxes are decorated with hand-stamped or embossed question marks and contain a randomly-selected nail lacquer. You will not know which color you will receive. As life is full of mysteries, so are our blind boxes.

  • Shipping Info - Due to U.S. regulatory restrictions, nail lacquer can only be shipped via Ground. Shipments filled Monday - Friday, excluding holidays. At this time we can only ship within the contiguous United States. 

  • FUN STUFF! - We really do like bats here at 1898 House and encourage you to help keep bat populations safe by installing a bat house. Our bat house sits atop a flagpole in our backyard and when it's warm itty bitty bats hang out there during the day and fly out at night. Please visit The Organization for Bat Conservation's website and learn how you can help keep our little bat friends healthy and safe.
