It has been a crazy week in the world of nail polish. Likewise, it has been a crazy week here in my lacquer bunker. It's hot. Very hot. Nearly 100 degrees hot! But I am still mixing, invoicing and packing every day :) Although truthfully the invoicing has been a tad slower this week than it was last due to a few doctors appointments and "real life" commitments.
As I've said here before, I was in a car accident in February and it has left me with a very aggravating and persistent burning/itching/bugs under the skin sensation along my shoulder blade. When I make polish or pack boxes for long periods of time it acts up. Muscle relaxers? Psssh. They are as useless as a polish bottle full of melting glitter!
I had a cortisone shot on Monday which has not seemed to do the trick, but I do have another shot scheduled for the week after next. Maybe that one will work? :) Anyway, the shot left me feeling like I had whiplash for a few days (it was injected into my neck). I didn't expect to feel so behind on things after just 2 days of taking it easy, but it did.
Luckily that whiplash feeling has subsided. I have a shipment of bottles arriving today and am going to attempt to mix a record breaking amount of lacquers before sun down. Wish me luck! I really want to get these done asap so that all of you can play with your lacquers! I am anxious to see what layering combos you girls come up with for them :)
So as for where I am in terms of filling the pre-orders...
I still have a ways to go, but I am trying to ramp production up. I appreciate everyones patience more than you know and will give you a more concrete idea of when I will be done in the next few days...hopefully :P
Once the pre-orders have all been filled, I am going to try to take a week or 2 off in order to take intense inventory on my supplies and revamp my work area. I am also in touch with a bottle manufacturer who is sending samples for a few different bottle shapes. New and improved labeling will follow suit. I am always trying to improve all aspects of Nostalgic Nail Lacquer and packaging is what I hope to perfect very soon :)
As always, thank you from the very bottom of my heart for your continued patience and patronage. I am deeply indebted to every one of you! You have given me the ability to do something that I love. To be my own boss. To set my own hours. And to see positive reactions to something that I actually created. Thank you!
