On the bad side, I received my samples back from the lab for the colors I am releasing and they were not perfect. I was so disappointed. The lab is now working on take two. The formula was perfect, it was the colors that were off from what it is I am looking for. OK so maybe I am just bummed because I was hoping for perfection right out of the gate, but after months of working on this, it just seems like forever! And nothing short of perfection will do. I want to release these colors sooner rather than later and with each go round, it just adds more time to the wait. But I would rather put out my dream product rather than just a good enough product, and since we are just establishing our relationship, this could be part of the reason. I am hoping to hear some news tomorrow as to how much longer this is going to take and when I can expect to see the second take on the colors. Wish me luck!

My First Attempt at a Duochrome
I was trying to create a purple brown toned polish with a green duo chrome effect. I got pretty close. It showed perfect in the bottle, but on the nail it came out with more green than the purple brown color. But it still came out pretty cool none the less. I may have to think this one through a little more though if it is going to make it into the line. But either way I am having a blast trying to create different colors! I have already created over 20 polishes in the last week and a half! It's crazy! I need to see about getting more bottles already!
