Sonoma Nail Art Polish Sale

I am super pleased to announce my first etsy sale of Sonoma Nail Art Polishes! This will be a small sale of about 50 full sized bottles. The polish will go on sale on Thursday, April 19th at 6pm Pacific Time. Here is a preview of what I will be selling:

Steampunk and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea are part of my Great Handcar Regatta series. These are polishes inspired by a really cool steampunk themed event that has been held in Santa Rosa for the past 4 years. Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence has actually been renamed and is now Sister Sparkle The Exalted One (same polish, new fabulous name!). This polish is inspired by the Russian River Chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. They are so awesome and have lots of heart. :) And Sonoma County Gazette is black and white and 'red' all over, ha ha.

Mustard Fields is inspired by the gorgeous cover crops of mustard that pop up between the vines each spring. The vineyards look amazing when that happens.

Here are swatches of Sister Sparkle The Exalted One over China Glaze Happy Go Lucky and over WnW Ebony Hates Chris. Mustard Fields is swatched on its own and over OPI Fiercely Fiona. 

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is swatched over CQ Creme Blue. Sonoma County Gazette is swatched on its own and over Zoya Dove. And finally Steampunk over WnW Black Creme, over Zoya Ciara, and on its own. 

Here is a shot of what my bottles look like. The labels for the Great Handcar Regatta polishes are slightly different than the labels for my other polishes. Each are full sized 15ml bottles. I am selling them for $10 each and I will ship to US and Canada only. 

Here is my etsy shop link. The store is on vacation now, but I will open at 6pm on Thursday, April 19th (Pacific Time). I apologize for not having more stock at this time, but I hope to have plenty in June. Thanks so much for your support and encouragement with this line of indie polishes. I just love them and I am having a blast making them. Now I just need more polish base, ha ha!

    1. Many other Etsy nail polish makers are shipping to Europe. There must be a way to do it, because a seller I've been browsing for some time managed to offer international shipping only a few weeks after I made an inquiry about it.

    2. I think the cost of overseas shipping right now would make you really not want to buy the polish. I did a few tests and PayPal was trying to charge me 22 dollars to ship one bottle of polish to Canada. EEEP! So I imagine the shipping for overseas will be 50 bucks or more. Ouchie. I will do my best to figure out a solution that will work. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

    3. When I buy polish on Ebay out of the USA, the seller wraps the bottle in bubblewrap thoroughly and ships in a padded envelope with "cosmetics" on the little green customs form (if a form is even used). They use "USPS First Class Mail International" as the method and charge between $3 and $6 for the first bottle, normally. Paypal is obviously giving you another shipping method that no one uses for small low-value shipments. Even Llarowe charges low reasonable international shipping fees (under $5 for the first bottle).

    4. As for me, I want a bottle of Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence sometime between now and my birthday (June 25) -- would love to celebrate my birthday wearing that polish. It's a big one this year, as my age, shoe size, and clothing size will all be the same: the answer to life, the universe, and everything. A cosmic convergence may well occur. LOL

      I guess I could ship to my family in the USA and have my mother ship it on to me in the Netherlands, but would rather not have to have her go through the trouble.

    5. Sharon I will do my very best to make polish available to all the ladies who want them. I appreciate your understanding and all of your great suggestions. This was my first online sale and it was really exciting, though a little nerve wracking. I promise I will get better at it. :)
