VBC - Handmade Nail Polish - Back Her Business x2

Unfortunately this project was not successful.

I want to bring non toxic nail polish to the public. I hand make 10-free nail polish that is also cruelty free, vegan & child friendly.

I am a sole trader.

I hand blend all the colours, pour into the bottles and label myself. 

I've been making polish for nearly six years, throughout the years I have seen many different trends and colour patterns and I believe I like to keep most of my colour unique and to a high quality. 

As well as selling to the public, I would like to further branch out into salons; so they have the option to offer a non toxic treatment, which is not harmful to the human body as well as not containing any animal derivatives along with the products never being tested on animals.

VBC has expanded into nail care with Manicure/Pedicure Bombs being a major player. These bombs are there to encourage and support nail growth and strength. 

VBC has been recognised by PETA and is listed as part of the Beauty without Bunnies program. 

Any money raised I would like to put forward into expanding the business, adding to the economy by offering employment opportunities in retail, making and research. Further afield there are two paths that I could only dream the business will go down; the first one being to set up a cruelty free, all vegan, all free from salon in Yorkshire (where I currently reside) or the Midlands (where I am from). To hold natural treatments, workshops, making products in store etc. Secondly I would love to open a handmade factory with a farm to naturally and organically source majority of the ingredients on site, giving more employment opportunities (employment within the company will be diverse and will be open to all, including those who consider themselves to have a disability and have unable to find work because it it)

 I would like to teach and inspire others about the harmful chemicals and toxics that is currently in everyday cosmetics.  

If you help me today, you will receive updates on how the business is expanding with the hope that in the future we can benefit with some more employment and farming opportunities.
