I Am An Indie!!

Let's face it, anybody can get some pigment, mixing it with some glitter, chuck it in some base and say "oooh look! I made a polish!" To make polish it takes more than that! You need to know what your customer want, what colours with go together! Yes you can chuck it in and hope for the best but it's the fine tuning of a polish that makes it just right and prefect! 
It's something you need passion for not something to picked up and dropped once you get bored, it takes dedication and the effort to push and promote your brand!
I get far too excited when I know I have glitter arriving soon, also the buzz I get from knowing my polishes will be shipped off and loved is great! I adore reading the feed back people give me, the good as you know people love your product but also the bad so you can see were you need to improve. 

Anyway enough waffling for one day ;) here is something I created to day in the half hour gap I had between jobs today! 

Hot pink holo? Yes please?! This is going in to testing on Sunday, with the view to be release in middle to late February. It will be along side a few other polishes which will be designed this weekend so watch out for previews on here. Sunday is going to be so busy this weekend! I have polishes to design, belle to muck out and ride, mix some polishes for my mum for presents, mixing polishes for my nails mail buddy annndddd I have Liam over too, guess I should maybe leave some time aside for him too lol!

How Not To Make Nail Polish! How I Started!

Before I begin this is not a post where I will tell you how to make polish, I did months of research before I was able to make polish and I feel that if it is something you really want to do then you will put in the hard work before the fun starts! 

So many of you may have seen on YouTube and on google "how to make polishes" stating all you need is cheap clear nail polish and eye shadow! Now don't feel bad if you fell of this as I did to! I went the cheap make up shop and bought 2 top coats and a powder eyeshadow (I then wouldn't have to crush up an eyeshadow, genius I thought) I got home and mixed it altogether feeling like a scientist, I swatched it on my nails and loved the colours! 
I woke up next day to find a solid layer of eye shadow at the bottom of my bottle and the lovely cheap clear polish was clear once more! 
What all the videos and tutorials don't tell you is clear polish won't hold the pigment up! It is too thin and just let's is sink, same with glitter if you chuck some pretty glitter in to a clear polish is will sink, it may also bleed and curly (but that's a post for another day!) 

After my first creation failed me I was gutted but then thought there must be a way to do this for real that will work and not leave a mess! After that Nails Inspire Polish was born. 

I hope this helps somebody out there! I wish there was a post like this when I first saw "how to make nail polish"

Slightly Over Whelmed But Very Happy

So I went to my other fair on Thursday, I hoped to do better than I did as my last. I barely broke even last time and it really dishearten me. 
Well what a change it was last night!! I sold 15 bottles of polish!! Everybody was so lovely and load of people where amazing I was making the polish myself! The custom top coats where a big hit and I ended up with glitter everywhere whoops!
I had such a fab time! It makes me want to go out and do lots more fairs! 
I also met a lovely blogger, Sarah of My Mint Nails ( came to the fair just to see me :') which I was extremely touched by! I am not hoping to do a Christmas Flea Market week before Christmas if I can fit it in around work and belle.

Last night I was mixing polishes of my secret santa when I created this:

Quite possible the most perfect hot pink I have ever seen!! As usually I don't think the picture does the polish justice but that might be just me! I have a plan for this polish so watch this space ;)

No More Nubs?

I have never had strong nails, ever! They have always been the bendy, peeling and breaking type! I used to have gels up on which did help but they would still break a lot :( but this is how my nails look currently....

Looking rather long (this is extremely long for my natural nails!) all expect my little finger :( I get very bad eczema on my hands and it seems to be effecting my nails on my little finger as above and my ring finger on my other hand. Due to the state of these two nails I don't swatch my own polishes which I'm gutted about! I love my swatcher they are lovely ladies but I would love to do my own :( oh well I can hope one I'll be able to! 
I just really hope they stay like this till Thursday! My last fair is then and I want to be able to show people the gradient effect of my thermals and you can't will nubs :( if the break it will have to be extensions :( 

My site is coming on nicely, my lovely Liam has sorted the shop and put all my polishes in and just finished my blog too!! So excited to put the link up once I have added my graphics and content!!

Very Cold Finger!!

Here I am again blogging at work -.- and I can't barely feel my fingers, how my poor iphone is picking up which letters I am hitting is beyhond me! 

My website is coming on nicely, I keep getting messages saying "this is your home page" "your nav bar" "I hate coding" "not sure how to code a shop" hehee love my guy! He's a star! 

I'm also thinking about glow polishes and more thermals. I keep longingly looking at my suppliers website and thinking which colours to buy next! It's really not helping being skint and Christmas coming up :/

Finally I would like you all to met Fraiser Danger Stephenson, my first nephew! It's my first time being an auntie and he is just so cute! Not sure about the middle name but that's my brother for you! 
I look forward to meeting you in January little man!

Over The Moon But Also Disappointed...

My hoodie arrived yesterday just in time for my fair!!!
I'm so so happy with it! Once my website has been coded I will get that printed on the bottom I think! 
It's not finished yet but is it in the process and going well, I think! 

Now for the disappoint meant, I went to my fair last night, I was very excited! Lauren came a long and was a massive help! But I hardly sold any :( my mum only sold one book so made a loss and a lady behind me didn't sell a thing! No body was seeming to buy anything, I just scraped a profit but only just less than a £1 I think :( 
But it was fun and I have another one on Thursday next week too so hopefully I will do better at that one! Here are some pictures from the event-

Lauren making some bags up to make the table look all pretty!

Lauren and myself with my table (never trust my mum with a iphone, the pictures come out fuzzy)

He Has His Uses :)

As of last night I am totally sold out of my Christmas thermals untill the 1st of December! Really rather proud of my little business, it's doing rather well! 

I am wanting to move my blog and my shop on to my own website, I got a step closer last night as my lovely boyfriend bought me my domain :D once set up it will be nailsinspirepolish .co .uk
He is currently coding it all for me so a massive thank you goes out to him! Thank you Liam!!! <3
(Honestly dating computer geeks has it's perks!)

Finally I getting very excited about my fair tomorrow night! My hoodie should be here and my best friend Lauren is coming along too!!
Can't wait!!!

"2 balls, put the brush in and twist on the lid!"

Mad rush home today to try and get some bottles sorted for Thursday! My mum and me were sat at our kitchen table putting mixing balls in to empty bottles. 1 ball in 31 5ml bottles and then assembled 20 10ml bottles and put 2 balls in those! Yet I still don't feel like I have enough prep done! I won't have time to do any on Thursday and might not tomorrow as my bestfriend is home from uni so we are taking our horses out for a ride! 
I might try and squeeze some prep in when I get home tonight before bed :/ I still have the following to do:
- write out my labels with my sliver pen.
- find my sliver pen.
- organize my stock.
- give my dad my fairy lights get him to figure out why they aren't working. 
- print off some business cards (might not happen at this stage) 
Plus loads more which I can't remember at present!

I also have more ideas running around my head for my next thermal collection, plus wanting to have a play with glow in the dark polishes anndddd I have some red (yes real red! Not brick colour but red) pigment I want to have a play with!

Arrrrrggggg!?!? I need a week of work!

Mixing, Riding and Forever Covered In Glitter!!

So this is how I sent Sunday morning: 

Mixing up a new batch of my thermals ready for my fair on Thursday night! All very exciting!! I also mixed up some more holo too coat which should be in my shop by 1st of December a long with thermals and my NI Polish Kits!!
I then spent the afternoon at the stables. I took Belle out on a hack with a young girl on her show pony. Belle was meant to be the nice calming influence on Pip but instead decided that the orange road blocks where far too scary and had to be snorted at and run away from -.- 

Also I have just approved the design for my hoodie and it should be here on Thursday too :D all very exciting!!!

I Think I Have A Problem....

I have known for a while about my glitter problem, but since I placed myself in a glitter ban I have been good and not bought any! (Check me out!)
But I have not noticed I new thing I tend to collect...hoodies :/ I have about 9/10 and have just ordered a new one...whoops! I meant to be saving my money for when I go to the Olympia Horse Show next month but the one I have ordered is just awesome!! It should arrive in time for my first fair which is in Thursday, if it doesn't heads shall roll! I will post a picture when it arrived but think alone the lines of black, pink and GLITTER!! 

I am sorry about the lack of nail news as of late but I have been soo busy with work I just haven't had chance! I will be mixing polishes tomorrow night ready for my fairs tomorrow night so there will be some pictures and maybe a couple of limited editions. 

I am in desparate need of a holiday, Centre Parcs world be nice!

On a final note Belle was clipped today, me and Becky (yard owner) both expected full blown fire works from her and to be a pain in the back side! But she wasn't, she was a total star and I'm very happy with her!!

To Holo, Or Not To Holo? Not Really A Question!

I have had some stunning holo pigment for quite a while now but when I asked my lovely Instagram followers if they wanted holos or thermals first they came back with a definite longing for thermals. So that is what they got! But I am now looking to do a holo collection soon. I want a collection of 4, maybe a red and a teal but what colours do you want to see?

Competition Time!!!

Who would like the chance to win a £10 gift card to my shop? 

If so here is how to be in with a chance! All you need to do is buy a bottle of polish between now (12th November) and the 25th of December 2013. This includes buying one from my etsy shop or if you see me at a fair! On the card label with the polish name on there will be a number, the numbers will start at one and go up. The more polishes you buy the more numbers you will have and the more chance you will have of winning ;) on Christmas Day (after I have opened my presents and given Belle her presents) I shall be picking a number at random and announce the winner! 

1⃣ Each polish will have one code.
2⃣ You can buy as many polishes as you want, for each polish you will get a new number.
3⃣ Custom polishes made at fairs will get one number too.
4⃣ My decision is final.
It is really that simple! If you have any questions then please post below or drop me an email :)

Good luck to you all!! xXx

Very Valid Reason!

I have a very valid reason as to why I have been blogging the last few days, all I need to say is two words...

Spead Sheets!

So as I'm not the most organized person in the world I have got all of my invoices for everything I've bought for NI but I just not totally sure I know where about 90% of them are. So when I finally pulled my finger out and made a start I became very stuck very fast! I had to go back through countless eBay emails finding which were polish related and which were the Christmassy hats on head bands I had bought for my mum and my self. I also had to convert individual glitter costs from dollars to pounds, ARRRGG it's taken me days to sort it all out and I'm still not done yet -.- I have finished my cost page and my sales but not my profits :/ 

Any way here is a picture of Belle on the winter sun on Sunday, love my girl!

Byee xxxx

Musings Of a Pizza Shop Girl...

No nails news tonight my dears :( not had any time, sad I know so instead I thought I would entertain you with the ridiculously stupid things people say when they ring the shop.

- Our burgers are 1/4 or 1/2 pound, the amount of people that ask which is bigger or what the difference is is just astounding!
- I ask where the food is getting delivered to and they say "poppleton" okay where? "Poppleton" -.- 
- I ask what they would like "oooh I don't know" then why did you ring?
- "can I have a ham and pineapple pizza?" Yes of course, a 9" hawiian- "NO I want a HAM and PINEAPPLE pizzas!" Yes that is what a hawiian is love.
- "my pepperione pizza doesn't have any pepperione" have you looked under the cheese? 

I seriously worry about the iq level surround this pizza shop :/

Stock Levels, Restock, New Stock, Stock, Stock...

Can you guess what nights blog is about? Bet you can't!!

Okay so here are the polishes which won't be restocked:
The Jellies - full set
Fire Works - full set

Fallen Leaves
So once these are sold out they are gone!

What will be restocked:
Top Effects - Touch of Pazaz

Restock date: 1/12/13

New stock? I have some ideas which I want to test out and hopefully release in a  month or so. I also have a colour which I created when I very first started mixing called Belle's Lullabie which I have been itching to release for a while now but didn't have a collection based around it. But then I thought, Hey this is my shop, my polish thee off my rules! 

I am also looking to set up my listing for NI Polish Kits!! They will maybe be in the shop on Sunday, depending on how knackered I am after being at the stables all morning. 

P.S can you tell I found out how to put stuff in bold and italics on my phone tonight inspirers?

Big Yawn and My Arm Hurts!

Yep I'm exhausted, sat on my lift chair at the pizza shop feeling like in about to drop off! Dragged myself out of bed today to go work at the stables and when I came to ride Belle she was a cow -.- 
She has these days where she will buck and bronc and be awful to ride and it makes me think she is too much for me and she would be better with somebody else, then the next day she is a super star and I love her again! Now my arm and shoulder hurt from hanging on for dear life do she didn't take off in the school! Damn mares!!

On a brighter note my Christmas collection was released on etsy last night!
Since the release I have had 4 orders which was 8 bottles in total!! So happy!!

I'm now looking though my current stocks on etsy to see what will be restocked and what want be, hmmm decisions...

Note Books, Stands and Yet More Bubble Wrap!

I got very excited when I recieve my customized polish stand - 
The writing is in a lovely pink which you can't really tell from the picture :( but you should see the amount of bubble wrap I got with it! I don't think I'll ever need to buy any for packing again! The tape came off to easy and didn't reck any of the bubbles!! Very happy lady here!!

As some of you may well know I work in a pizza shop 5 nights a week. So when's it's quiet (early in the evening and later on) I have chance to get all sorts of work for my polishes done! So I have this - 
While I'm here I write ideas, costing, prices and stuff I need to buy in my little book! It's a great way to keep track of everything :) 

And finally for tonight I got my little funnels this morning so hopefull the kits will be in my shop next week! They will cost £14.99 and you will get:
- 2 x 10ml bottles with base with mixing balls
- 2 x 5ml bottles with base with mixing balls
- 1 x little funnel
- 4 x glitter 
- 4 x pigment

What colours do you want to see? Ransoms or shades? Let me know inspirers! :)

Release, gift wrap and a rosette!

Okay, firstly My Hero! is now I'm my shop! For each bottle which is sold £2 will do the Help For Hero's charity! The is a fab charity so please do show your support!!

I am thinking for putting a listing up for a gift wrap option in my esty. Normally when you receive one of polishes it comes wrapped in bottle wrap and the tissue paper with ribbon attaching the tag with the name of the polish. For an extra 50p you will get the above wrap but instead of the ribbon attaching the tag there will be a elastic beaded ring that matches the colour of the polish for you to wear alway as the little organza gift bag for it to go in. 
Here is an example on My Hero!

Will option should be in the shop over the weekend :)

And finally!
I enter Belle in to a photo competition on Facebook the class was called "my horse things he's a Pegasus" the rule was the horse was not aloud more that one foot on the floor so I enter this - 

Out of 60 other entires Belle came an extremely respectable 4Th!!!

Very proud of my girl!!

Bye inspirers! Keep dreaming!!!

Sit and Breath!

Is it bad that my seemingly only sit down of the day is at my second job? Hmm...

Well today has been rather hectic to say the least! Working at the stables and sorting Belle, going home via the pub to book a tables for Sunday, mad dash home to pack an order and a prize, stop at the post office to send said packages and now sat at work blogging....can I go to bed now please? No? I have to work here till midnight? Urg great!! 

In brighter news I have booked Nails Inspire in for 2 Christmas fairs :D exciting stuff I know! 
Also the last Christmas polish has been mixed and bottled:

I'm leaving the colours secret untill it's release on the 1st of November ;) mean I know! 
Also I have my new bottles:

This means I can restock Touch of Pazaz in my etsy shop!! I love the new bottles, but what do you think?

Bye Inspirers, Keep Dreaming!!

Another Day At The Office (Kitchen Table)

Some people have swanky offices, with spiny black leather chairs. Some people have a small posh wooden cabin in their back gardens (glorified sheds if you ask me) but do I? Nope!

I have been sat at my kitchen table working this morning. Washing machine spinning in the background, occasional being jumped on by one of our 6 cats, sharing the big pine table with my mum who is emailing about her next print run for her latest book (link below please take a look) and listening to some rather random music on my itunes. But I started Nails Inspire on this table and that's where it shall be staying for the time being!

This mornings work has consisted of a new limited edition polish, Fallen Leaves.

Fallen Leaves is a glitter topper with fine gold glitter and chunky red, garnet and rainbow shifting glitter! There is only 3 5ml bottles of this available in my shop and will be posted at 8pm tonight, get there quick as not to miss out!

Bye Inspires - Keep Dreaming!!

Nails Inspire Polish Kits!

Tonight I have been online shopping again, I know I really stop that but it's for items that are very much worth it!
I posted on my instragram yesterday about polish kits, were you would get a 5ml or 10ml polish bottle with base in it (depending on the kit for how many bottles,) a small funnel, pigment (choice of colours), glitter (again colour of your choice) and (easy to follow) instructions! So this evening I have ordered and small grip seal bags for the glitter and pigment plus the organza bags the kit will come in! Theses will be released in to the wilds of my shop as soon as I have all the components, as the funnels are coming from America it may take a week or two but as always I'll keep you posted! 

Bye Inspirers, keep dreaming xXx

300 Followers, New Polish and a Video Which Made Me Think....

WOW! Whoa! OMG! (and other words of excitement) I have now reached 300 followers on Instagram! Slightly surreal and I'm so happy! I never thought my little polishes would get so far in such a short space of time!!

The Fire Works collection is now my shop! Pleas go check them out as they are super sparkly and would be fab for bonfire night! 

There is a vlogger on YouTube who I love! Her channel is iisuperwomanii and if you haven't seen any of her videos please go watch some, she is hilarious! But she posted a video the other day ( which really made me think, (if you have watched it please go do so) 

Last year for me was crap, it was just awful! I was in a job I hated, it was dragging me down, I had a screaming match of a break up and a lost my amazing loan horse who I had been riding for 2 and a half years! 
But in January this year things picked up, the last straw at my old job went and I quit! 3 days later I had a new job with better pay, which meant when my current horse Belle was offered to me at the end of February I was in a position to buy her! I have been working with Belle for 7 months now and we are going from strength to strength and hopefully we will go competing next year! Finally I got my polishes on the market and on the 22nd of September my little shop went live! I have been over whelmed by people compliments and have meet some amazing ladies along the way!

What I am saying here is if you have a matter how big or small chase it! Never give up untill you achieve everything which you have set out todo! Your dreams won't come after you as they are scared you aren't ready for them, show them you are and go get them!!


P.S Belle wanted to show you all her present from HOYS - leather head collar with name plate ;)

Fiz, Pop, BANG!

Although it is Halloween first I have decided to do a fire works collection instead, these will hopefully be in my esty shop on Sunday night! All of the polishes are a black base with different coloured glitter to add the some sparkle!

Here they is a bit more about them:

This polish has my favourite chunky green holo glitter in it mixed with a smaller teal holo and a fine aqua/teal glitter.

The pink has a lovely chunky bubblegum pink glitter, a smaller chrimson glitter and a fine hot pink holo glitter for a girly sparkle!

Here in the blue there is a chunky medium bluey/lilac, a vibrant blue squares and fine blue too.

  And last but by no means least there is red, there is chunky red holo dots, smaller garnet and red glitter too!

So what do you lovely lot think? Comment below :)

Talk Glitter To Me...

Let's just get things straight, glitter is amazing! With all if the colours, sizes, shapes, mattes and so on the glitter combos you can create is mind boggling!
But what do you like? What glitter combos do you want to wear? That colours? Do you want a mixture of sizes and shades or random mixes? 
I fall in love with some of my glitter combos but that doesn't always mean that will be favourites with my lovely customers!

So what would you like to see? Tell my your favourite colour combos and what you want to see!

Playing With Glitter - Totally Counts As Work!

So this afternoon after being at the stables all morning and taking one of the cats to the vets I actually managed to do some polish work! 
I am taking my polishes to Wilberfoss Playgroups shopping event :)
( ) but rather than just selling my polishes I am giving buyers theopportunity to create their own glitter top coats by picking the glitters they want to use. So I made this up - 
It has each of my current glitters on it (more will be getting added when I get me latest order, Ekk) I will be rolling this option out to etsy too when I have a day to have a good go at it, maybe Thursday or Sunday :) but as always I'll keep you posted.

I also hope that my final pigment will arrive soon so that I can finish my Christmas collection and release them in to the wilds of UK indie fanatics!

I have now decided to put my self on a glitter ban, I will not allow myself to buy any more glitter for the foreseeable future as I just over excited and end up but more glitter than I need, whoops! Hopefull I'll sell lots of custom glitter polishses at the fair and in my etsy shop! 

Love you all! xXx

I just got a message on my etsy that one of my polishes has sold moment just let that sink in for me. Sold...out...WOAH!! I set my shop up a week ago today and already 1 of my polishes has sold out! That's pretty staggering in any measure. I'm over the moon! So I would like to say thank you to all you lovely guys out there who have bought one of my polishes!

Not sure if anybody reads this so please post me a comment if you do :)

Ideas, Please Form An Orderly Queue! Thank You!

  I have ideas just flooding my mind at the moment! From the first idea (kiwi) to the last (lemon and lime) the jellies collection took about 3 months. In the space of 2 mornings of mixing I came up 3 polishes from my Christmas collection with the last idea coming from a friend just a couple of days later. In just 2 days I mixed up my Top Effects collection and the only reason it not on my shop is that I'm a numpty and ran out of bottles! I now have new ideas for more glitter top coats and still have 3 releases to organize and take photos for!

So if all my ideas would like to form a nice orderly queue in order of brilliancy that would be just great!

Productive mess and bleeding glitter!

There is nothing better than a productive mess! So that is exactly what I did this morning! I was playing around with glitters, pigments and thermals! There will be a stunning thermal released once I have figured out the rest of the line so watch this space! 
Although the down side to this mornings mess makes was I found that some of my glitters bleed :( I'm heart broken!! For the people who don't know what that means, it is when the glitter loses it's colour once it has been placed in the polish base :( it can sometimes leave a lovely effect but other times ruin your polish :(. So my holo pink, red and purple shall be put in my gels kit to be used for nail art, not a total waste then :).

Glitter, bottles and more!!!

Nail Mail!!! I got very excited this morning when I got a box for over the sea! Suspension base and 2 glitters arrived at 7.40am (mum wasn't happy whoops) then later that morning more glitter, 24 bottles and my thermals all arrived!! I was in glitter over load!! It all came just as I was leaving to go to the stables and when I came home I have had to come straight to work :( no times to play!!! Will have to get up extra early in the morning! 
I am now just waiting on the glitter for 'My Hero!' and then all my outstanding orders will be here!! Exciting!!

I'm Sorry Bank Balance!!

I have been on a bit of a frenzy over the last 2 weeks, I really should apologise to my poor bank balance! 
It was sparked by a bright idea for a thermal polish, but I could just buy 1 colour! Also there was a stunning chemo I just had to have (and have just red that chemo is in this season, I'm psychic!). Then there was the glitter, in colours I was missing so they had to be bought! Plus the holographic fuchsia which went lovely with silver and the red was just so sparkly!! Plus the glitter for the H4H polish as I had nothing suitable! 
I think I have a problem!! I'm trying to go cold turkey but not sure how it will last as I have just seen a black holographic which I HAVE TO HAVE!! 

Hello my name is Kim and I'm a glitter addict!!

Air Bubbles, Why Do You Hate Me??

This is how I spent my morning...bottling my jellies collections. Not only did I find out I didn't have enough bottles I also found out I HATE air bubbles!! 
You may think "perf air bubbles! What do they do?" They cause a great deal of stress that's what!! You can be merrily pouring your polish from the mix bottles into the little bottles and if there is an air bubbles it's blocks the neck of the bottle you get a back up and polish goes EVERYWHERE!! Not fun! 

I have also started to get the tags ready for the My Hero! polish and hope to be releasing that soon!!

My Hero!

So I have decided to create a polish which takes on the colours of the charity Help For Hero's. I have a great amount of love and respect for all of the armed forces and feel that H4H does amazing work! I also have a very close friend who joined the RAF and I couldn't be more proud of him!! 

The polish will be just glitter taking the colours royal blue, pale blue and red. Here is a sneak preview of the glitters that I will be using: 

The polish, if you hadn't guessed, will be called "My Hero!" For each bottle bought I will be giving £2 to the charity. The glitter will be arriving in the next week or so so watch this space for the release date!

Keeping Busy and Big Steps Forward!

So today was a big day for NI, the first full collection was sent off to a UK blogger to be swatched and reviewed! The lovely Tips and Top Coats is swatching for me and I can't wait to see the results! I'll post a link to her blog at the bottom!
I have also designed my labels and have sent the image away to be printed!! Very exited to be releasing my first collection in just a few weeks!!

I am currently having to sit on my hands to prevent myself from going glitter crazy! I have glitters on order but I'm trying to to buy any more glitters and pigments before my current orders arrive! Some that are on order are magical and thermal so watch out for my thermals release in the next few months!!
