Restock 10/31 on Big Cartel

Hi all, I'll be stocking exclusively on Big Cartel for awhile (http://windestine.bigcartel.com).  It's definitely easier to just keep track of one shop.  Listings will be live tomorrow morning (Halloween) right after I wake up.  So around 6am PST. 

The Hawaiian collection will be available, and some items have been marked down.  So far I've started using the octagonal bottles for Androgynous, Moana, Pele, and Peach Ice.  Eventually other shades will be offered in these bottles also.

In other news, I found a distributor who's interested in offering my polishes in her online store!  She ships internationally which was my ultimate goal when I started my search.  If all works out, she will carry an exclusive (to her shop) polish that is a Christmas version of 80's Deco.  I think it looks so cute and hope to show it to you soon.

Presenting... Moana

Here is the last (and my favorite) of the Hawaiian collection... Moana.  I was inspired by the brightly colored corals of the ocean for this polish, hence the hot pink & orange glitters.

This one also needs topcoat.  I added a LOT of glitter to this one, and the ease of application suffered for it, but the end result is worth the hassle.  Although it looks sheer in the photos, you'll get full coverage (no VNL) in 3 coats.  My photos suck and do not do this polish justice.

Presenting... Peach Ice

Heehee, the name is kind of boring, but I'm using it to describe the inspiration for this polish... Hawaiian Shave Ice which I loooove.  This one is opaque at 2 coats, and it definitely needs topcoat otherwise the glitter will seem a bit bumpy.

I wasn't going to include the last photo, but I accidentally rotated it instead of deleting (random!) but I like this angle and decided to post it.

Presenting... Pele + I'm on Twitter

Here's the first polish from my upcoming Hawaii inspired trio.  Pele is a mix of various colored glitters in a red-orange base.

I may add a little more glitter to the final color... I'm still on the fence about that.

Also, I'm going to try twitter and see how that goes.  I will try my best to remember to tweet about important things.  :)    @windestine

Tiny preview & a new Poll!

Hi everyone,
Here is a tiny preview of some jelly colors I've finalized.  I have already selected a mix of glitters to swirl in with the red jelly.  I'm really happy with how it looks!  Once the peach & turquoise jellies have their glitters picked out, I'll post some swatches.

In the meantime, there's a new poll!  I'd love to find out which color you like the best, based on the pic I've posted below.  Granted, the colors are not 100% true to real life appearance but I'm still curious of what you think! :)  Thanks!
