In Unfortunate News...

Posted by Erin on 3/13/12.


The unfortunate news is that the supplier I use for the nail lacquer base has become overwhelmed with orders and does not have enough to supply everyone. I suppose this was bound to happen, as many new indie nail polish brands have popped up over the last few months and this supplier is pretty much the only one anyone knows of. 

The semi-good news is that I received a very brief email response from the owner of the supply company and I do have some hope that I will be able to continue buying the base from her. I'm just not sure of how much I'll be able to buy...or when. All of us chicks on facebook are trying to come up with solutions should this supplier not be able to supply us any longer though. Hopefully a solution will be found.

Something will pan out. I'm not giving up on this. I worked too hard and I love it too much. 

I have a limited supply of base right now. About enough to make 200 bottles or so. I'm not sure what to do with it at the moment, as I really really want to get the new collection out and I also want to make sure that the people who email me asking about current sold out shades can get them. I'm thinking of making a poll where you guys can vote on the shades you want me to make most and I'll do my best to churn those out in accordance. 

On the bright(?) side of this-
If by chance I am forced to take a hiatus from selling the lacquer due to base shortage, it will give me some time to do a ton of experimenting and come back with some more badass shades for you :P What's that saying about lemons and lemonade...?

    I'm having the same problem, and what's even more killer is I'm in walking distance of the supplier. They don't even have the secondary option in size available anymore which is a total bummer. My line will have to stay in the small 5ml bottles for the extended future. :(

    Good Luck!

    I am not holding out :) I am still planning to release them on Friday. Sadly though, there is no Ricky or Brian in the collection. HOWEVER...there is always room for 2 parts in most of my collections ;) So you never know...
