Native War Paints was created by Amanda Pigeon- Scribner, a member of the Pokagon band of Potawatomi located in southwest Michigan and northern Indiana.
Tired with drug store polish, Amanda began searching online for some different options. She was hooked after a couple of purchases and became a polish hoarder. After a couple of years, she decided she wanted to try her hand at mixing. After talking it over with Brian, Native War Paints was born.
The name Native War Paints refers to Amanda's father's opinion that she was wearing too much makeup or a polish that was too flashy as a teenager. He didn't approve of her flashy appearance and he would tell her to "Go wash off that war paint."
Brian started helping with the business about six months after the launch. He is great with customer services and sales so he handles that aspect of the business while Amanda takes care of the creative side.
While Native War Paints has a wide range of colors and finishes, shimmers are what they do best.
