A Day at the Races Update

We found out last night that our collection is still at the filling facility. They are backed up with the big demand in the polish world with keeping up with orders and are running a little behind. We are told that the collection should be sent out this week and are waiting on more information as to the exact date. I was not excited to hear about the delay, but I wanted to let you all know where it stands. As soon as I have more information I will let you know. At least the delay will only delay everything by about a week at most. I apologize if this causes anyone who pre-ordered any issues. Feel free to email me if you have any concerns regarding your order or the delay.

I have also been receiving some questions on the pre-order. We ran the pre-order through April 15th only. Well actually since I got sick, John was stuck being mom and dad and Cult Nails all on his own and didn't take it down from the sight until the 17th. I posted initially that it would only run until the 15th, but there were a few days added in. The reason we cut it off a week before we anticipated was so that we could get everything ready. Shipping labels, envelopes, boxes etc... The goal is that once the polishes arrive everything will be ready and we will get everything packaged and sent out the same day we receive it. Both Juan and I are taking the 22nd off in anticipation of receiving the order. (Which also just so happens to be our 16th wedding anniversary - yes we got married when we were mere children! ha!) but now that there is a delay it looks like I may have to take another day off in the coming week instead. We are still planning on taking the 22nd off and just enjoying the day at the beach or something equally cheap for our anniversary. Not the way I intended the day - but at least it's still a day off work.

Oh wait, I got off track, as I was saying - so that is why the pre-sale is gone. We did not sell out just yet. But we are getting really close - which is exciting! We still have My Kind of Cool Aid, Living Water and Quench, so it is amazing to me that this second collection is going faster! Depending on the color we have anywhere from 175 - 200 of each color left! AMAZING!!! We are almost reaching the point where the next collection will be completely funded from the sales of this collection! WOW! That would be amazing to not have to put more "personal" money into the next collection! I can't imagine that day! Maybe one day I'll even start making money off this business and be able to work for just me? Can you imagine that? I can't wait for that day to come!!! So exciting! You guys are really helping make my dreams a reality! I hope you are all enjoying the ride as much as I am!

OK enough with this long post with no pictures! Yuck! Look back in a few hours for the Lady Gaga inspired manicures!


  1. I can't wait to see this collection! Enjoy your unplanned day off! And congrats on your current success and future success :).
