Looking toward the New Year

I’ve got some news to share today.

Let me get the less exciting news out of the way first.

I’ve closed the BrambleFae Boutique Etsy shop.Β  This has been a long time coming, folks so don’t be too sad-I’m not. I have loved every single thing I’ve made for you folks over the years, and I will continue to be available for commissions, but that’s gonna be it, I think.Β I will keep the Facebook page open and of course y’all can hit me up on twitter anytime. πŸ™‚

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been fighting with the fact that my wrists are not up for the wire work like they used to be and as I did a few holiday commissions this year, I realize I just can’t ignore that.Β  This was definitely a factor when I decided to turn my skills toward cosmetics.

Speaking of which (*grin*), I have a new, limited time polish in the BeeFae Etsy shop!

Tinsel and Lights is a green holo nail polish that I initially made for myself, but I love it a lot, so I wanted to share it. πŸ™‚ It is *way* more sparkly and glittery than the pics show (Check out the video on my Insta for a slightly better look!)

I know I’ll be wearing it till well into the new year. πŸ˜€

Speaking of the new year (I’m all about boring segue-ways today, folks. :p ), there is so much coming from me. So much. First-instead of monthly polish pairs, in 2018, I’ll be releasing birthstone inspired polishes on the first of every month! I’ll unveil January’s in the next couple of weeks. πŸ™‚ There will be a full polish line in March, but sometime before that I’ll be releasing a special pair that I’ve been working on. πŸ™‚

I’ll also be releasing a few eye shadows, probably in the spring. πŸ™‚Β  And I’m about to begin working with scents, so maybe in the later part of 2018, I’ll release a roll on or solid scent or two. ❀

2018 is the year to remind yourself to feel fabulous, and if you’re into cosmetics, I will be here to help you out.

Peace, folks. I’ll see y’all soon.

August’s Polish Pair!

Hi folks! It’s almost August. How the crap did that happen?! πŸ˜€

August’s Polish Pair follow a theme for once. πŸ™‚ August is my favorite of the summer months. Β It signifies the beginning of the end of Summer, the first harvests, and the first steps toward my favorite season-Autumn!

Both polishes came about because of myth and story.

The Death of John Barleycorn is a glossy tan/beige with tiny brown flecks in it, something like ripe barley or wheat, and I love that barley was personified into a story/song.

There was three men come out o’ the west their fortunes for to try,
And these three men made a solemn vow, John Barleycorn must die,
They ploughed, they sowed, they harrowed him in, throwed clods upon his head,
Til these three men were satisfied John Barleycorn was dead.

Lyrics are fun. πŸ™‚

The second polish is called Samildanach. It’s an Irish gaelic word that means, basically, “Master of all arts”, and was a title given to the Irish deity Lugh, who’s festival, Lughnasadh, is generally August 1st. Since Lugh is considered a sky/sun god, this polish is all sorts of gold and sparkle. A sheer gold shimmer, with tiny scattered gold holo glitter throughout.

The cool thing about this pair is that, while they both look great alone, they also look great together, with Samildanach over Barleycorn. πŸ™‚

As always, these will be available the 1st of the month, and will only be available for the month of August, so be sure to pick them up!
