Made With 90% natural ingredients, this little mascara won’t flake, clump, smudge, run and wash it off with water only. It’ll easily become your favorite mascara that you can use daily or keep in your purse. The little mascara gets its name from its size – a little bottle means a short wand that’s easier to use and the special brush fits your lash line like a glove — making it easier to apply the mascara to your lower lashes. Choose from gift sets or a subscription box to order.

THE BEST LITTLE MASCARA EVER: length + definition formula

The original LENGTH + DEFINITION formula has incredible staying power. It is smear proof, sweat proof, smudge proof and budge proof, yet removes with just water. It’s like magic, we know!

How To Create A Luxury Pedicure At-Home

Even though nail salons are still not open for everyone, our feet still need some love. I wanted to introduce Halo Hand that will help you create a luxurious, yet affordable pedicure experience from home.

Halo polish was made with you in mind — from how you shop, to what you wear. As working women on the go, we wanted polished nails to help us feel polished, but struggled to find long lasting, go-to shades that wouldn’t break the bank. Halo started by offering women a better in-salon experience, but the more manis we gave, the more we learned the dark secrets of the nail world. Polishes filled with cheap, harmful chemicals that are bad for our nails and health dominate the industry.

Halo Hand offers “high-fiveable” clean nail polish kits that come with everything you need for a total at-home pedi-makeover. Best of all, you’re not compromising your nails by exposing them to toxic chemicals in the process. The brand’s polishes are “10-free” meaning these nontoxic formulas eliminate the 10 most common chemicals found in traditional nail care products. Additionally, their vegan and cruelty-free line brings you the “whole kit & caboodle” right to your fingertips.

*Limited Release* Summer Treats Color Kit

The Seasonal Summer Colors are here! Every season, Halo Hand releases the limited edition collection of the hottest mani trends. This summer, Halo Hand is bringing you cheery shades with a bit of nostalgia – all of your favorite summer flavors that will have you both trend-ready and craving your favorite treat.

This Summer Color kit includes Halo’s signature 10-free polish in the following flavors:

  1. Lemonade: a creamy-yellow shade that’ll take you back to your lemonade stand.
  2. Creamsicle: a milky orange so delicious you’ll want to enjoy it on the beach.
  3. Spearmint: a bright, refreshing summer green.
  4. Blueberry Bellini: a purpley-blue that’ll make you crave the classic cocktail, stat.

Naughty Nudes Color Kit

For those who like to stay on the simpler side, the true nudes cover the spectrum of barely-there colors, without overwhelming white undertones. For a peek-a-boo of polish, look no further.

The Naughty Nudes kit includes Halo Hand signature 10-free polish in the following colors:

  1. Halo Pink: we may be biased, but this signature shade of millennial pink will leave you feeling perfectly polished.
  2. Basic: a barely there sandy champagne so your hands look flawless for when you’re…holding champagne.
  3. White Hot: a flat white color for when you’re feeling on fire.
  4. Partly Cloudy: a gray so delicate, it goes with any forecast.

What’s Inside all the kits: 

  • Set of 4 Halo 10-Free Polishes
  • One 5-Free Halo 2-in-1 Base & Top Coat Combo
  • One 2oz bottle of Soy-based polish remover
  • File, buffer & lint remover wipes (use these to keep those light colors staying bright!)
  • AKA everything you need for a total at-home mani-makeover!

Customizable Full Nontoxic Color Kit (4 colors)

The same great Halo polishes you love in Halo Hand no-guess shades, now in a color kit that you can build to fit your taste.


Tired of the clumpy polishes, made with mysterious ingredients that made our stomachs churn, we got out our paint buckets, and started mixing. Halo polishes are CLEAN, chip-resistant, and long-lasting. Their polisthes are quick-dry and go on silky smooth, requiring only 2-3 coats for full, vivid color. Halo Hand is made with only the best ingredients, and are cruelty-free, vegan, and 10-free!

As all of us always found picking colors difficult — with so many options, where does one start? Halo Hand sought to fix that and took the guesswork out of picking colors and left only the good ones. Halo’s slimmed down palette has all of the go-tos that you need and the seasonal flavor that you crave. Their colors are truly pigmented to the shade you expect – they don’t compensate with white or black undertones for filler, it’s all color all the time. And they promise, no surprises!

Halo Hand is bringing you more than just polish – they are offering a total nail wellness solution. Let Halo Hand help you take care of your nails.

About The Founders

Meet Jennifer

Co-Founder & Chief Nail Officer

Jennifer is a 10-free convert (who has time for chemical-filled polish!?) who, for years, has been in search of her go-to nail color. Her nomadic existence, moving from NYC to Chicago to San Francisco, has made having the tools for an at-home manicure a must.

Jennifer’s favorite Halo Hand nail color comes from the nude palette, which inspired the website & branding.

Meet Donna

Co-Founder & Chief Glam Officer

Donna is a mani adventurist. She likes to experiment with new colors and patterns, but always comes back to her go-to staples (classics are classics for a reason!) She has lived on both coasts and traveled for work in-between, so appreciates the importance of a reliable and healthy polish. An SF native, she knows that the city is in dire need of a mani makeover.

Baiden Skincare Company Comes Clean About Effects of its Products on Keratosis Pilaris (aka KP, Chicken Skin or Bumpy Skin)

“Even though KP is genetic and cannot be cured, would anybody really care if it was invisible? After all, it’s a totally benign skin condition,” said Ishay Shen, the founder of Baiden Skincare company. “I’ve had KP most of my life but never ‘suffered’ with it as it only makes an appearance on the rare occasions when I have not used our flagship exfoliation product – Baiden Mitten – for at least a month.” She added, ”and that hardly ever happens.”

The Baiden Mitten exfoliation is instant and very deep. The dead skin rolls off the body, opening the pores and removing keratin plugs. Smoother skin instantly!
No need to suffer with Keratosis Pilaris, KP, Chicken Skin or Bumpy Skin. Baiden Mitten will reduce the appearance of the condition in just one session…

To date, the company has received hundreds of emails about just how effective their products are in helping eliminate the appearance of tiny pimples, which appear mainly on thighs and backs of arms. The annoying condition often makes sufferers self-conscious to exposing their skin in public and can seriously affect their lifestyle.

“Our customers are elated that they can often see a dramatic improvement in smoothness of the skin right after the very first treatment,” said Shen. ”They’ve often tried a multitude of other remedies before, none of which provided the benefit of the instant gratification.”

Lately the company noticed that the amount of people seeking to get the dreaded “chicken skin” condition under control has dramatically increased. They attribute it to recent lockdown which stopped people enjoying sunshine thus making the problem worse.

The company decided to ”come clean” about the effectiveness of Baiden Products on KP in an effort to help customers take control of annoying and embarrassing condition before the summer season.

”From what our customers are telling us, it looks like many of them are planning to take the full advantage of the sunshine to help with their skin conditions and finally get a healthy glow after a traumatic isolation.”

Baiden Mitten – the product that has withstood the test of time. Customers report significant immediate improvement in many skin conditions such as dry skin, Keratosis pilaris, acne, rosacea, eczema, strawberry legs, psoriasis and dermatitis.

Based in Idyllwild, CA the Baiden Skincare company has been retailing their products for over 15 years now. “Honestly,” Shen said, “we have been doing very little advertising during all this time. Our customers do most of the promoting for us via the word of mouth. Our focus has always been customers, ethics and community. We have developed top quality products that are truly effective, long lasting and Earth friendly. We support community projects and have been fair trade long before it became fashionable.”

Unicorn Glitter Meets Cosmetics

Lip Mermaid Cosmetics (LMC), matte lip gloss with glitter shapes such as unicorns and butterflies, announced today they have officially launched their first six products that can be purchased at lipmermaid.com. They’re based in San Diego, CA and were founded by Erica Taylor in October 2018. Lip Mermaid Cosmetics’ mission is to encourage unique self-expression by creating a brand that allows the beauty community to transcend their makeup artistry by exploring new adventurous looks through incorporating glitter shapes.

Chosen as a FABcon 2020 Top 50 FAB leader in Fashion Apparel and Beauty, Erica Taylor, CEO of LMC is set to speak at the convention at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this winter. “At LMC we aspire to ensure that our mermaids will always make a splash by adding glimmering glitter makeup designs!” Says CEO, Erica Taylor. She also mentioned that she found her muse in festival and sporting events attendees’ adorning glamorous glitter. She is planning on introducing glitter shapes that are specific to sports teams and music festivals in her upcoming collections.

LMC is the first and only brand fashioning glitter shapes into their cosmetics with a patent pending product, making them a new trendsetter. All of their products are vegan and cruelty free, LMC spent years before launching doing research and development to attain their combination of high quality ingredients. This company was started in Erica’s kitchen and all of the packaging was done in home with the help of her family initially. All of the ingredients were meant to be silky smooth and healthy for the skin and lips. The glitter side is versatile and can be used on the lips, face, body or even in the hair for glitterage.

My favorite styles!

HOW TO APPLY LIP MERMAID

LMC was brought to life by Erica combining her two passions of events and cosmetics. It was her desire to make on-the-go glitter application easy as well as to eliminate the troublesome mess of glitter explosions. To learn more, you can visit lipmermaid.com.
