Smitten Polish Update - New Collection Info and More

Hi folks! I have a bit of business to mention, then we'll get on to the new collection.

As Smitten has gotten more and more successful (beyond my wildest dreams, really), it's gotten progressively more difficult for me to keep up with trying to update both the blog and Facebook pages. Facebook is honestly much easier for me to update on the fly, especially when I'm away from home. For that reason, the vast, vast majority of Smitten updates will be via the Facebook page, which is here.

That being said, I know that not everyone likes Facebook. I know that not everyone wants to be on Facebook. So for that reason, I'm also starting a newsletter that will feature restock information, new collection and new release information, and information on sales. I promise I won't spam you. and I'll never, ever sell your information. The link to sign up for the newsletter is below!




Now that that's out the way, on to the fun stuff. =) My newest collection is called Wickedly Smitten, and it's inspired by the musical, Wicked. Here are the swatches and the inspirations for each polish.

The first is Traveling by Bubble, inspired by Glinda.


In the musical, Glinda's dress is blue rather than pink, but I wanted to have some pink in there as a nod to the movie version of Glinda as well. Pink and blue circle glitter, along with a bit of small pink and blue hex glitter, in a milky blue base with a touch of blue shimmer. This is shown at three coats.

This is the inspiration: Glinda arriving by bubble. =)

 
Next up, we have Pink Goes Good with Green!, inspired by the part in the musical where Galinda decides to make Elphaba her pet project and teach her to be popular. One of the things she does is put a pink flower in Elphaba's hair and exclaim, "Oooh! Pink goes good with green!"


Pink Goes Good with Green! is several sizes of light green and light pink glitters suspended in a milky green base. And here's a shot from the musical to give perspective to the polish:


Next is the other polish pictured in the above swatch, I Feel... Wicked. I won't give away what leads Elphaba to this realization. This polish is based on Elphie in all her green glory. Green jelly base with several sizes and shapes of green and purple glitter, including some green holographic glitters.


Elphaba, as portrayed by the incomparable Idina Menzel.

 
Look to the Western Sky is a line from my favorite song from Wicked, Defying Gravity. "So if you care to find me, look to the western sky! As someone told me lately, everyone deserves the chance to FLY!" This is my vision of Elphaba flying off into the sunset.
 
 
Purple jelly base with the colors of the sunset - pink, yellow, purple and orange. 
 
 
And lastly, but certainly not least, we have Who Steals a Dead Woman's Shoes?? Which, if you think about it, is exactly what Dorothy did! The shoes in the original book by L. Frank Baum and in Wicked aren't red - they were made red for the film. The shoes were silver, and this is my interpretation of the silver shoes.
 
 
And here's Elphie's sister, Nessarose, with the jeweled shoes.
 
 
 
So that's it. This collection was a real labor of love for me, and I hope it shows. This collection will go live on my Etsy shop, www.smittenpolish.com, on January 30, 2013. I will list half my shock at 1pm CENTRAL TIME and the other half at 7pm CENTRAL time. See you there!

  36. My mother has completely lost central vision through macular degeneration. She used to be a wonderful artist and has many pictures to her credit; she used to make ornaments which she now cannot look at, never mind MAKE; she used to be able to read, and to look at peoples' faces to see their smiles as she talked to them. She used to be able to watch TV. Now all she can see is the vague outline of what is around her, the view which disappears as she tries to look at it! She's 94 and her brain still works.Very good and interesting site with very good look and perfect information I like it
