June and the Monthly Polish Pair

It’s halfway through the month and I’m just now blogging about June’s Polish Pair!

20170522_133714

June’s been a very busy month-my kiddo just graduated high school so we’ve just finished with all the whirlwind activity surrounding that and things are finally settling down.

Beachy State of Mind and Summer Splash are demi matte polishes, which means they’re balanced between matte and shiny. It’s a great look for summer fun. I’ve been wearing both of them constantly (In between testing for the next set!)-I love them so much.

They’ll be available ONLY till the end of June. I’ve decided that the monthly Polish Pairs will only be available in that month (May’s is the exception because I was still deciding, but they’re leaving at the end of June, too.). ย Will they ever be available again? I’m not going to say no, but certainly not for awhile. ๐Ÿ™‚

There won’t be a Polish Pair for July, because there will be a WHOLE NEW SET! And I’ll be talking about that in a couple of days! ๐Ÿ™‚ Wooo!

Get Them While You Can!

Hi folks! You’ve got a little over a week to get both of May’s colors at a discount! (The same with the full starter set-Once May is over, you can buy them singly still, of course, but you won’t be able to get the discounted price!)

Through the month of June, you can still buy May’s colors, but after June, they’ll be taken from the shop. ย Forever? Who knows. ๐Ÿ˜€ I suppose that depends on you folks, so let me know if you like the colors and they may make a return later on.

In other news, I was playing with glitter awhile ago, and came up with something I loved so much I wanted to share it with you folks. Beyond the Seventh Wave is a really cool polish for a couple of reasons-I mean, it looks amazing, yeah? And it’s my first foray into jelly polish.

Later this week, I’ll formally announce June’s 2 Colors (even though I’ve teased them all over Instagram recently! ๐Ÿ˜€ ), and the next full line of BeeFae polish is nearly ready for testing-with a tentative release around the first of July.

Lastly, I am learning about, and will soon be playing with, thermochromic pigments (The kind that change color with temperature changes!). I’m excited!

I hope ya’ll have a good, productive week. Remember that you’re awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s May, here’s an update!

Hi, folks! April was a pretty good month for me, and I give you all the thanks for it! I have lots of cool polishes and things coming up over the next few months, so please stick around and tell your friends! ๐Ÿ˜€

As I said in my last post, I’ll be releasing two polishes every month (except on months where I do a full release), and I released May’s a little early because I was really excited about them!

During the month of May, you can get 2 dollars off if you buy them together! ย After May, you will still be able to buy them singly, for awhile anyway. ย I’m still thinking about how long I want to keep the monthly colors in the shop after their month is done. In the meantime, though, check these out! I love them (I know, I say that about all of them lol)! I have a soft spot for pale pinks, and I love pink and grey together.

What’s up for BeeFae Cosmetics this month? Well, I’m finishing up June’s 2 colors (Wait till you see them!), and I’m working on the next full set. ย I’m also working on vinyl stencils for nail art that I could have in the shop before the end of the month. ๐Ÿ™‚

The other thing I’m doing this month is putting the Bramblefae Etsy shop into vacation mode for May and possible June. ย Funnily enough, I’ve done that for last 5 years, so I could get ready for the ren faire season, but with the closing of my local faire, this year, I’m not doing that. ย But, I’m vacationing that shop while I focus on BeeFae for a bit and figure out the next direction for the Bramblefae Empire (haha).

However! I’m still more than happy to take commissions for wire work, just email me, or tweet me or something. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lastly! Now that you folks are actually getting BeeFae polish into your hot little hands, I’d love to see your nails! I’d love to hear what you think and if you get a chance, I’d really love it if you could leave me some feedback on Etsy!

I hope flowers are blooming wherever you are and I’ll talk to ya’ll soon!

BeeFae’s (tentative) Release Schedule

Now that the Etsy shop is up and going, I feel like I want to let you folks know a bit about where I want to go for the rest of the year. ๐Ÿ™‚

While I work toward getting to a place were I can develop new colors and put out new polishes whenever the mood hits me, for now, I’m going to do releases in bits and pieces.

The plan is to release 2 more full sets of six polishes this year (Tentatively in July and October) and 2 polishes per month in between those, with potential surprises here and there. Like, I’m working on a good black and a good white, and I’ll likely plop those in whenever they’re ready. ๐Ÿ™‚

On that note, I’ve released May’s color pair early-You can get them here and here!

I’m also going to add 5ml bottles of polish to the shop in May because I know some folks want to try colors before they buy a big bottle. (I’m still fiddling with labeling. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

And! In May I’ll start offering a custom color service. My idea is to create custom colors for folks who need special gifts (Weddings, friends, Tuesday. ๐Ÿ˜€ ). I’ll give that its own post.

Lastly, I would love input from you folks! Tell me how you like the polishes so far, tell me what I could do better, tell me what colors you’d like to see!

The Starting Lineup (BeeFae!)

17310311_10155271636004994_2227599130361247781_o
Aren’t they pretty? โค

Here they are-the starting six colors in BeeFae Cosmetics’ debut nail polish line. I really feel like I want to shout, “TADA!” every time I show the polishes to anyone.

I should say they’re in their final stage of testing, so formulas might change a bit if necessary, but the colors are solid. ๐Ÿ™‚

Over the next weekish, I’ll be giving each color its own introduction post (even though one of the pictured polishes doesn’t have a name yet! *grin*), but now I can set down the timeline of the launch.

On Monday April 3rd, I’ll open up the BeeFae Etsy page for pre-orders for the line. ย You’ll be able to pre-order individual 15 ml bottles (The ones you see in the pic), or the whole set of them. Eventually, though, I want to also offer smaller 5 ml bottles, and cuticle oil and vinyl nail stencils, but not for the pre-order. ๐Ÿ™‚

On Tuesday, the 4th of April, I’ll have a limited amount of bottles available for purchase at Sassafras & Sage in Angola, Indiana.

The pre-order period will last through April, and on Tuesday, May 2nd, I’ll start shipping out all the pre-ordered polish. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sadly, though, I will only be able to offer BeeFae nail polish to folks with addresses in the contiguous 48 states at this time. ย I will continue to look into options that will allow me to legally send polishes elsewhere, but until then, US only shipping. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Other than that, I am very excited to have you all try out BeeFae polishes! I hope you love them as much as I do.

And now for something completely different

Hi there folks!ย As I mentioned in my last blog post, I’ve been working on something new, and it’s finally time to begin sharing that with you.

I’m actually really nervous about how ya’ll will react, but I am also super excited about it. ๐Ÿ˜€

I’d like to introduce you all to BeeFae Cosmetics. ๐Ÿ™‚ Although, for now, it’s just going to be nail polishes. (I keep telling myself, “One thing at a time, B.” *grin*) ย The plan is to launch officially the week of April 3rd, but now that things are officially a go, I wanted to start sharing the journey with ya’ll from testing all the way through to launch. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is basically an offshoot of my work as Bramblefae, meaning they will exist side by side rather than one or the other. I’m not changing anything about how Bramblefae Boutique is running. I’m just adding something new, too.

Over the coming weeks, I’ll have an FAQ, and I’ll probably have several polls about all kinds of things. ย But for now, I’m looking to build up a pool of folks willing to do some testing for me when I need it. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, if you’re interested, please fill out this form.ย ๐Ÿ˜€

And if you haven’t already, follow me on Instagram and Twitter (or check out the feeds on the right side of this page!) for the best updates on this new venture and all my jewelry news!

Lastly,ย I really look forward to hearing what ya’ll think about this. โค
