Description Ingredients and Warnings Blogger Reviews
Nemoralia is a dark maroon jelly with gold and silver flakes. Two to three coats are recommended. Each bottle contains one or two stainless steel BBs for mixing.

Nemoralia in mid-August honored Diana Nemorensis, or "Diana of the grove". Diana was the virgin goddess of hunting, the moon, and childbirth, and was also associated with witchcraft. She was especially beloved by working-class citizens and slaves.

Diana's sacred grove was near Lake Nemi, about nineteen miles from Rome. During Nemoralia, worshippers would wear garlands of flowers and carry torches around the lake, where the lights would reflect alongside the light of the moon. People in need of Diana's help would tie messages to trees or offer statuettes of body parts that were injured. Hunting was forbidden during the festival, and hounds were also draped with flowers.
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.
