Prepping For Restock

In addition to all my previous shades, I'm also stocking these new colors:

Nerds!, Moonbeam Dreams, The One on the Right

Here are Moonbeam Dreams and The One on the Right as full manis, three coats each.

And Lovely Lilacs:

Whee. Off to keep mixing!

EDIT: I've pulled Verbena from the lineup because I just wasn't happy with it. Lovely Lilacs is much, much nicer, much more saturated and richer than Verbena.

SmittenPolish Update!

I'm in the new house and setting up my work space today. I'm hoping for a restock on Sunday evening, if everything goes smoothly. Yay!

Teeny Update

Still working on packing. The move is Tuesday. I can't wait to be settled in. *sigh*

I've set up a Facebook page for SmittenPolish. There's a little button to the right over there to like the page. I plan to update both here and Facebook, but I know some people like one or the other more. =)

And a little tease of what's coming.

These are named Nerds!, Moonbeam Dreams and The One on the Right. =)

Thank you!

Thank you all once again for an incredible sale. =D It makes me so happy that other people are enjoying my creations as much as I am loving making them.

The next sale will be in about 2 weeks. I'm moving next week, and it will take me some time to get in the new house, get settled, and order more supplies. I think I'll be able to get into a better routine for making more polishes at a time once I'm set up there, since I'll have a much better work space. I'm happy and excited, and again, I can't thank everyone enough for the love and support.

Yay, malware warning gone!

At least Google was quick with the review once I removed the offending link. For now, I've removed my blog roll. I hate having to do that, but I likewise hate having malware on someone else's blog causing problems on mine. =|

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

Yikes! - Malware Warning!

I have to say it's a bit of a shock to one's system to visit your own blog and get a malware warning! I did some investigating, and it turns out one of the blogs in my blog roll was pinging Google's malware warning.

I've removed that site from my blog roll, and I'm very sorry if you've gotten a warning from my site! I haven't purposely installed any malware, that's for sure! What a headache!

Sation Oh My Oceania

Yes, another NOTD! Sation has recently revamped their line of polishes, and Oh My Oceania is the first one I've tried. If the others live up to this one, there will definitely be more of these in my future.

First, Sation has revamped both their bottle and brush. The old standard round bottles have been replaced with this:

I really, really like the new bottles. They feel heavy and solid. The brush is super nice as well. The brush is of the wider and flatter variety, but not so wide that I had difficulty polishing my pinky nails - so smaller than an OPI Prowide brush, to give you an idea.

Look at this color! Look at the shimmer! I mean, seriously. This is one amazing polish.

The formula was very, very impressive. It was just the right consistency, no pooling or puddling or any other weirdness. Very smooth, very pigmented, but I didn't experience any staining either on my cuticles or my nails.

Two very enthusiastic thumbs up from me! =D

The new Sation line is available at and TransDesign, here and here respectively. They are also available on the Sation website, here. Since I was ordering just one bottle, I ordered mine from this eBay seller.

Hope y'all are all doing well, and thanks for reading!

Nails Inc Baker Street

What's this?? An actual NOTD post?! Yes! A couple of things happened to make this possible. 1) I got a new polish! I've been wearing either repeats or my own prototypes for so long, I almost forgot what having a brand new polish was like. 2) I got my new camera, and I thought that taking it for a spin with something as hard to photograph as Baker Street would be good. I have to say I'm pleased on all counts.

Here we are in full sun. This is the most bold, vibrant blue creme I have ever seen. The formula is positively luscious - two easy coats, barely any cleanup. I was worried with how bright it is that I'd end up with blue cuticles, but nope! Nothing going on here but a lovely, easy to control formula.

In retrospect, I feel kind of silly for resisting this one for so long. If you like blues at all and you don't have this, you need it. Trust me, just go to Sephora or order it online. You need it! =D

Other news - the Smitten Polish restock is probably about a week away. All of my supplies are en route, so I'm eagerly awaiting their arrival. I'll be posting here which colors I'll be offering and when the shop will open. =)

Thanks for reading! <3

Stunned and Floored and Ecstatic, Oh My!

I am totally verklempt. The Smitten Polish launch went about 100 times better than I thought it would, and I know it's partly because of you guys. =) I can't thank you all enough!

I hope to restock in about 2 weeks or so - I'm waiting for more base and more bottles and more EVERYTHING since the sale pretty much wiped me out. What a good problem to have! When I do restock, I plan to include the four Nommy-Noms polishes, as well as Bluebird and Aquarius. Those have been marinating for long enough now that I'm pretty confident that the formula is stable. I have a couple of others that I think will probably be ready for my next restock as well.

This is so exciting, and again, thank you all so much for your support!
