Description Ingredients and Warnings
Equus October is a chestnut brown crelly with gold and copper microglitter. Two to three coats are recommended. Each bottle contains one or two stainless steel BBs for mixing.

The ritual of the Equus October ("October Horse") on October 15 was the only known horse sacrifice in Roman religion. The ritual was dedicated to Mars, who was both a god of war and a god of agriculture, so the festival celebrated the harvest and the return of soldiers from war. The Romans held a chariot race, and one of the horses from the winning team was killed with a spear and sacrificed to Mars. The blood from the horse's tail was sprinkled on the sacred hearth of Vesta. Meanwhile, two neighborhoods in Rome held a contest to win the right to display the horse's head.
Always start with a base coat to extend the life of your manicure and reduce the risk of staining. Apply the recommended number of thin coats, waiting for a few minutes in between. Paint over the tips of your nails to form a seal. Finish with a quick-dry topcoat such as Out the Door or Seche Vite. For bumpy glitter polishes, you may need more than one coat of topcoat for a smooth finish.

To keep your nails and cuticles healthy, we recommend a cuticle balm such as Indigo Bananas!

Three-/four-/five-free polishes may settle over time (a layer of clear liquid will form at the top of the bottle). A good shake should redistribute the pigments completely.
