In 2012, I was determined to find and learn about every indie polish shop. I looked on blogs, through google, and several message boards for a complete list with links and names and it simply didn't exist. The closest I could find was a board post on MUA Feb 22, 2012 by haayleyy. The list was alphabetical, with no links and contained a total of 27 polish shops.

Since I was not able to find a single source with a complete hyperlinked list of shops, I decided to create my own. I got permission to use haayleyy's list as a starting point and began researching to find their online shop links and then I published the full list here on February 23, 2012. is the blog home of the original indie shop links list.

I have since added/removed well over 800 shops to my list. On occasion, the list is cleaned to remove broken links, change links, and remove shops that have not been active for several months or have closed. My list will never be all inclusive, but it's a really good start.

Manna's Manis helped audit the list in 2018 to remove closed shops. Big thank you to her!

I hope you find the list useful and thanks for the visit!


  1. Is Ella + Mia considered an indie brand? I've seen it for sale at CVS.

    1. Yes, Ella and Mila is independently owned. I confirmed via email minutes ago. Thank you for asking!

  2. I went through most of the list and took some notes about what's MIA or changed URLs:

    Deadly Nail Polish (I can't find anything about this brand tbh)
    Honey Lacquer (this looks like it has some connection to Max Factor, a major beauty brand)
    Kise (I saw you commented on their facebook but they never responded)
    Lil Fang
    live love polish is now Mooncat
    Miss Priss
    MTKDesign moved to a shopify url
    My World Sparkles?
    One Off Polish?
    Opulent Essences has switched to a Bigcartel website
    Pep Nail Vibes might be on hiatus but I think someone stole their url
    poshlish is MIA
    Rebellisch's fb page is gone and has no website anymore
    Ruby White Tips redirects to some kind of Chinese website with flashy banners
    Wingin It Lacquer seems inactive
    Wishful Bath and Beauty's storenvy is gone and this list is one of the few listings that mentions it

    1. Just to add, Poshlish's Instagram is completely empty. I don't know if the owner changed their URL or deleted everything.

    2. I contacted the owner of Pepperpot Polish on Instagram and she said she switched jobs and "no longer has the time to focus on it like I used to", so that means no more Pepperpot Polish.

    3. I've removed Poshlish and Pepper Pot, now taking a look at your larger list. Thank you for doing this!

    4. Honey Lacquer was an indie polish brand, it's definitely gone now. You can see the logo and such at the internet archive here:
      It is kinda interesting that the only thing that pulls up via google is the Honey Lacquer lip gloss by Max Factor though!

    5. alright, all updated! :) thanks again.

  3. The owner of Peachtree/Bonparsco has gone on a hiatus as of two years ago due to the passing of her husband. This was posted on Facebook, on August 20th, 2022:

    My life has changed forever. 💔
    On Thursday, August 18th, my husband of 32 years passed away☹️
    My plans for the future are now completely different. I will not be working on any Bonparsco or Peachtree Polish products for quite some time.
    Maybe in the future things will start up again.
    Thank you all for the past 7 years of love and support. Y'all are amazing customers!

  4. Black Dahlia Lacquer's website domain expired, and from what I've seen on Instagram, the owner is pretty much inactive.
