Description Ingredients and Warnings Blogger Reviews
Matronalia is a light periwinkle polish with blue, purple and pink speckles and a sprinkling of blue glass flecks. Two to three coats are recommended. Each bottle contains one or two stainless steel BBs for mixing.

March 1, the first day of the year in the old Roman calendar, was Matronalia, or Roman Mother's Day. It celebrated Juno Lucina, the goddess of childbirth and motherhood. (Juno was the mother of Mars, after whom the month of March is named.) The rituals of Matronalia were conducted by women, and although we don't have all the details, we know they kept their hair loose and were forbidden from wearing any belts or knots. At home, women received gifts and prayers from their husbands and daughters, and then cooked a meal for the household slaves.
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.
