Is it okay to use nail pol­ish that’s sep­a­rated?

—Sue- Ellen Steiner, Grand Rapids, Mich. In most cases, yes. Stephanie Bruno of Essie’s pro­duct­de­vel­op­ment team ex­plains that pol­ish sep­a­rates be­cause the col­orants—pig­mented par­ti­cles sus­pended in the for­mula—vary in weight. Heav­ier ones tend to set­tle at the bot­tom over time, but rolling the bot­tle be­tween your hands will remix them suf­fi­ciently for use. (If the pol­ish doesn’t re­blend or ap­pears crumbly, toss it.) Bruno adds that since ex­po­sure to light and heat grad­u­ally de­grades both color and tex­ture, stor­ing pol­ish in the fridge is your best bet for mak­ing it last in­def­i­nitely.
