In my last post I alluded to a big upcoming announcement... well, here it is!
Yep, this happened. And I couldn't be more excited! It's no secret that I love handmade/indie nail lacquer, and after admiring the gorgeous creations of independent nail polish creators, I decided I really wanted to create my own nail lacquer. Thus, Pirate Polish was born.
Why "Pirate" Polish? Because pirates, much like ninjas, are awesome. It's a pretty indisputable fact. I also wanted a name that would be memorable (and alliterative, for that matter!). Speaking of memorable, how awesome is the logo? A local comic book artist worked on it with me, and I'm incredible happy with the end result!
All Pirate Polish lacquers are made "from scratch" using 3-free nail lacquer base, pigments/micas, and glitter. While some of the polishes will have a "pirate" theme (it's a wonderfully rich subject when it comes to drawing inspiration), I've also been inspired by elements of popular culture in movies, video games, and comic books.
I'm planning to begin selling Pirate Polish via Etsy within the next few weeks. It's certainly been a trial to get my hands on enough lacquer base (to say nothing of shipping it to Canada), but I should have a good amount arriving shortly. I can't wait to get started!
In the meantime, I'd love it if you all wanted to take a look at the Pirate Polish Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/PiratePolish), and tell me what you think. I've got a bunch of bottle pictures up, and I'd love your opinion on them!
Thank you, lovely readers, for being a part of this new adventure!
