Cancer Care Project September 30 2015

Good evening everyone! We wanted to share with you a little bit of what we have been working on and what you can look forward to in the month of October. 

As most of you know, we try to do several charity projects each year here at Pretty & Polished. Well, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month we have decided to start a new project. Hopefully one that can continue to grow for as long as we are around to supply you with beautiful polish. You will see on our drop down polish menu that we have a "Charity" section. Each month we will place items into this category and the profits from those items will go towards helping us with our Cancer Care Packages, any extra products or profits will go to the Little Red Door Cancer Services.

What is a Cancer Care Package you ask? Well, we have decided to work with Little Red Door Cancer Services as well as the Oncology Unit at Ball Memorial Hospital to make and provide special packages for their patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. We have made boxes that we have packed with Pretty & Polished products as well as products donated by our friends, family, and customers and supporters just like you! If you would like to donate in any way we will put the information at the bottom of this post so that you may do so. 

We would like to not only continue to provide these care packages locally but we want to branch out and go as far as we can with it. If that means that we simply inspire someone to do this in their hometown we hope we can! YOU can do this! 

Something else we are doing to make this more fun for our customers, each month when you purchase something from our Charity section we will send you a ticket. We will keep the other half and write your information on it. On the first of every month we will pull a ticket out of our box and email the winner. That winner will win a prize pack! Each month the prize will be different. 

We want you to know that we will be selling some Cancer Care Packages on our website. The packages for sale will be slightly different from the ones we are handing out for free. We will not be using any donated products in the ones for sale online. They will be packed with items we have sourced ourselves. We want to give you the opportunity to send one to someone you know who has gone through chemo or radiation. The profits from these boxes will go directly back into the Cancer Care Package program. They will be limited in quantity so please be patient with us as we attempt to make this program work.

 

If you would like to donate to the Pretty & Polished Cancer Care Package Program please send your donations to the following address along with your name, address, and email. We will be sending each donor a coupon code for a free nail polish ($8.50 value). 

Pretty & Polished

PO Box 127

Muncie, IN 47308

 

Items that can be donated: Unused makeup, skincare, or bath & body products. Unused Nail Polish. Fragrance samples, scarves, coupons, jewelry, candies. If you have any questions about something you'd like to donate please email me directly at chels@shopprettyandpolished.com

2/10 Press Release February 10 2014

Good morning Pretty & Polished Fans! We have a lot of news for you today. As you can tell by looking at our website, we have updated everything and have made our website easier to navigate. You can now use our wishlist tool to add polishes you like or plan to purchase in the future to a list! This is a really great feature and we hope you will enjoy it!

 

We also want to FINALLY give you the details on all of our new polishes coming out! On March 1st we will be releasing 2 new collections, "Spring FX", and "A New Equation". 

"Spring FX" is a four part collection that has a little something for everyone who loves our effects polishes. 

  • "My Friend Dahlia" changes from a holographic purple jelly when cold to a bright holographic pink when warm! You can see a quick video of it here: My Friend Dahlia on Youtube 
  • "Fields of Poppy" is a gorgeous Poppy Creme polish with a lovely holographic shimmer. 
  • "Disguise the Limit" is a lovely shade of blue with color shifting shimmer and a strong holographic glow. 
  • "Green Eyes and Stormy Skies" is a deep dark duo-chrome shade that transitions from a green to a purple at different angles and has a lovely holographic shimmer!

You can check this collection out now at: Spring FX

 

"A New Equation" is our newest additions to our  "Adventure Time" themed polishes. This collection will have 6 brand new polishes based off of the Fionna & Cake episodes. 

  • "Ma Ma Ma My Fionna" has a light blue crelly base and is packed with white, blue, green, and yellow glitters to remind you of the beautiful and brave Fionna from Adventure Time. 
  • "Catnip! Sweet Babies!" is our new color based off of Cake from Adventure Time. You will find this creamy white base packed with caramel hexes and the perfect shade for Fionnas forever faithful pal.
  • "Prince and Repeat" is a gorgeous pink creme based polish packed with his royal Highness's trademark colors. This polish is simply Prince Gumball in a bottle, without the stickiness!
  • "Ice Ice Lady" is a really fun white crelly polish. Although the Ice Queen herself cannot be trusted, you can trust that this polish is a winning look! You will find blue, red, and gold glitters swimming in this white base. 
  • "Bad Little Boy" is our dark and evil presentation of Marshall Lee from Adventure Time. This polish is a lovely red jelly packed with menacing black glitters and a touch of blue that pops!
  • "Dots and Dashes" represents Lord Monochromicorn, the gender-swapped version of Lady Rainicorn. Unlike Lady Rainicorn, he is dark and dashingly handsome (according to Cake) and communicates with Morse Code. We think this polish is quite clever! 

You can check this collection out now at: A New Equation

 

We will also be releasing two new additions to our "Country Girl Swag" Collection! 

  • "Sugar in a Sundress" is a sweet pale yellow creme with a beautiful shimmer and blue glitters.

Winter Collection Debut! November 15 2013

Good morning polish lovers! Today, November 15th 2013, we will be releasing 12 new shades! 9 shades are part of our new Winter Collection. The ninth shade in this collection, "Be-Claus I love You" will actually be sold in hopes of raising money for the Salvation Army. All profits from the sale of this particular polish will be going to them. Hopefully we can bring a little holiday cheer to those less fortunate. 

This years winter collection is a little different from years past. We wanted to do shades that could be worn all year instead of catering to specific holidays. We think these shades are fabulous representations of the kind of bold color combinations and outstanding formula that Pretty & Polished is known for. We truly hope you will enjoy all the shades and we wish you all a very happy winter and holiday season!!

Winter Collection Round-up!

"Winter? I hardly know her!" - A color changing nail polish that changes from white to blue when cold. You will find this polish to be packed with white and blue glitters. Reminiscent of the icy snowy winter. 

"Babes in Boyland" - A light creamy blue base with bright pink glitters and white rectangles, hex, and diamonds!

"Haute-y and Nice" - A polish inspired by winter runway fashion! This polish has a creamy gray base and is packed with purples, blues, pinks, and gray glitter!

"Fireside Kiss" - This polish is a sexy and romantic deep red jelly shade packed with bright sparkling pink shimmer and a pop of occasional green, blue, and purple sparkle. 

"Don't Quit Your Holi-Day Job" - A creamy white base packed with all sorts of brightly colored glitters. Inspired by the holiday shopping rush! 

"Ornament Smash Reloaded" - Our first winter collection had a polish called "Ornament Smash" and our customers LOVED it! This year we are bringing Ornament Smash back and it is better than ever! This polish was made to look like someone took a box of ornaments and just threw them into a grinder! The perfect topper for any manicure. 

"Icy What You Did There!" - This polish is sure to be a showstopper! It's a deep blue holographic shade that is perfect for any and every skin tone!

"String Cleaning" - This polish is a little bit more Holiday Traditional. Its a gorgeous green cream with a red to green color shifting sparkle and is packed with circle glitters that remind us of Christmas String Lights!

"Be-Claus I Love You" - Our charity polish this year is an adorable glitter topper packed with red, white, and iridescent glitters to really bring out your inner Santa baby. Remember, it's for a good Claus!

 

We will also be releasing 3 new color changing thermal nail polishes with this years Winter Collection. 

"Pieces of You" is a gorgeous deep blue jelly polish with icy blue shred glitter that changes to a deep purple jelly when cold. Perfect for cold winter weather!

"Animagi" is a lovely holographic shade that is black when cold and purple when warmed up by either your natural body temperature or by placing your fingers in warm water etc. This polish was inspired by the famous Harry Potter books. 

"Hybrid" is sure to be a best seller! This polish is one of our coveted 3 part changing polishes! It is a gorgeous purple when cold, a medium blue when room temperature, and a white or light blue when hot! It also has lovely blue shimmer swimming throughout. 

 

We have also made some special bath and body products for the season. Please check out our new Sugar Scrubs in scents like Sugar Yum Plum, Very Merry Cranberry, Mocha-Doodle, Peppermint Bark, and an intriguing Chocolate Covered Bacon which we think is the perfect gift for your male counterparts! 

We look forward to all the feedback from our amazing supporters and customers about these 12 new shades! 

 

Happy Holidays from Pretty & Polished!


Pretty & Polished 2013 Fall Collection Sneak Peek! August 23 2013

Good morning polished ones! Today we have some great blog posts to share with you all about our 2013 Fall Collection, "Fall in Love..."

This collection is based off of something very personal to me, my Fall romance with my now husband. Our anniversary also happens to be September 5th, so what better way to celebrate than with the release of the collection?!

"Fall in Love..." is a TEN piece collection! You will find some typical fall colors in this collection along with some things that may not be so typical. We are offering you many different finishes this season! What you can be sure of though is that we brought you some shades that are IN and are sure to pop right off your nails this season!

Pumpking: A bright orange jelly with sparse golden red flakies that dries to a matte finish on your nails. This is a jelly so you may still have visible nail line after 2-3 layers. We recommend layering this polish over orange, white, or even black undies!

Rake my a Little Piece of my Heart: An off white crelly polish packed with fall colors in different shapes and sizes. We recommend 2 layers with this polish. 

How's About a Roll in the Hay: This is a glitter topper packed with yellow, white, and creme, colored glitters for that perfect roll in the hay look for your nails! This polish is meant to be a glitter topper. It can be used over any color. 

H-equinox My Socks Off!: A gray brown creme with small gold and blue glitters. We recommend 2-3 layers or layering over white or brown. 

For Sweater or Worse: A perfect deep purple creme. You can achieve full coverage within 1-2 layers. 

You make me feel Gourdgeous: A sheer purple jelly packed with purples, blues, and gunmetal colors. You can get a full coverage of glitter in 3 layers. We recommend 2-3 layers or 1-2 layers over a purple or black. We also recommend wearing this over our lovely purple creme, For Sweater or Worse. 

Leaf Me Breathless: A yellow jelly full of fall colors. This is a jelly polish so you may see visible nail line even after 3 layers. We recommend 1-2 layers over a yellow or white.

When Hearts Kaleidoscope: A lovely cranberry creme with gold and pink glitters. You can achieve full coverage within 2 layers! 

Love is Autumnatic: This polish is a full coverage glitter polish and is Autumn in a bottle! You can achieve full coverage in 2 layers. We recommend layering this over Pumpking for an awesome Fall manicure!

Over the Harvest Moon For You: A blue jelly polish packed with the fall night sky! You will find holo glitter, moon glitter, and all kinds of different shapes and sizes all crammed into a sparkly dark blue jelly. You can achieve full coverage in 2-3 layers. We like the way this looks on its own but you can also layer it over a blue or black. 

We have some lovely bloggers posting pictures and reviews about this collection! Check these lovely ladies out:
And at a later date look for reviews from these bloggers:
