$5 Sale Announcement!!!

The $5 sale is here - almost! (We promised advanced notice!) We reached 5,000 likes on Facebook and now it's time to have our $5 sale! WAHOO! Here are the details of the sale.

We wanted to have a sale as a way of thanking everyone for the amazing support you have shown to our small brand! I can't express how much the support means to me. As a small business we have to put some "rules" if you will, in place. We want to be able to be as fair as possible so that everyone who wants to has the opportunity to participate in the sale. We also need to be sure we don't kill our stock as that could be detrimental to our business as we don't have the resources that some major brands have. So I hope you all find this fair and enjoy the $5 sale! 

The sale will include all of our IN STOCK colors with the exception of any limited edition shades (Toxic Seaweed & Seduction). It will not be valid for collection purchases that are already reduced in price. It will be for individual bottle purchases only. (Basically anything in our LACQUERS or TREATMENTS tabs on our website.)

We will include the following as part of the $5 sale, Get It On, Wicked Fast, Captivated and Black Out as those will all be here some time next week. 

We will have to put a max to the number of polishes you can get for $5 during our sale. Juan and I are at an impasse as to how many colors. As we posted previously, we knew we would have to limit the number of polishes we would be able to offer during the sale. Juan says 2, I say 4. We ran the numbers and possible scenarios and Juan wins, it will be limited to 2 bottles max per person. We will allow one order per person. This means if we receive more than one order from someone all orders after the first order will be canceled, no exceptions. You will be able to order additional colors at the regular price during the sale. We will have two coupon codes for use during the sale, 1 for $5 off 1 bottle and one for $10 off two bottles. 

There are several reasons for the "rules". We think this will allow more individuals to be able to participate in the sale and prevent any "Evil Bayers" from scalping the sale and killing the fun and intentions of the sale. 

Lastly, we have an order in to bump up our quantities of polishes in stock. Those should be to us on April 6th. This means more advanced notice for our sale.

The sale will be for 1 day only on April 7th starting at 12AM EST. 

Hope everyone enjoys the sale and that this answers all questions!

  4. I am so glad this isn't happening when I'm away from home! I was worried it might happen later this week when I'll be on a birthday trip with my son (he's turning 6!). So now I have until early April to choose 2 colors. Hmmm....

  5. This is very well thought out, and very reasonable Maria and Juan! Well done! Can't imagine a more fair situation than this. Very wise about the coupon codes too - an extra safeguard against anyone trying to 'over order'.

  6. Im very excited! Except I have 8 polishes that I have to narrow down to two :( but seems very fair and reasonable!

  7. Sounds good. I was thinking of just getting 2 polishes anyway. Can you tell me about how much S&H will be for just 2, because if it's a better deal to get an extra polish because how much that is, I'll do that. You know how a lot of us are, trying to get the best bang for our buck. ;-)

  11. Is it one order per household ? Meaning if you have a daughter you both cannot order?

  12. You guys are so structured and well organized in your communication and business philosophy! It's such a pleasure to deal with you :-).

  13. They have the best customer service and they care about the product can't go wrong with both of those qualities

  14. I understand the fairness to business but what if you have two adult daughters going to college and who want to get in on the sale but they can't because you all share the same address?

    1. It's still separate people ordering, just to one household, which is ok. Heck, I still ship to my parent's house too & I only live one town over, but in a crappy area. :-)

    2. So that means both my girls can order even though they are sending it to the same address, our home? The things is they order through me and I use Paypal. So I guess I have to either just order the 2 or see if they can set up Paypal accounts on their own. We don't do credit cards. Sigh...oh well. Don't get me wrong, I'm appreciative it's just a bit complicated in my situation. Thanks auroragyps for trying to clear things up for me....I appreciate that hon. :) Now what to do...sigh....

    3. Oh and we have no other address we can use or send things to. No relatives or friends whatsoever. I know, sad but such is life. I'll just place my order tomorrow and let the girls choose one each for the sale which is my only option at this point. Have fun shopping ladies!

  16. Congratulations Maria, you deserve this recognition and more! I really like that you explain reasons behind your choices rationally and calmly. I completely understand the rationale behind the 2 bottle limit. It's the best for all of us. Thanks!

  17. Congrats Maria! It's so inspiring to see that dreams and hard work can actually pay off. And thank you so much for doing this for us! I keep seeing all of your gorgeous polishes online and I've been so low on extra money lately that I haven't been able to get any of them; and this will allow me to do that. I totally understand the 2 polish limit and appreciate the fact that you are thinking about all of us and are making it so that we all have a fair chance of taking part in the sale. You rock! <3

  18. Cannot wait - even if it's only 2 bottles! Will we be able to combo the sale items with full price orders to get a better brake on shipping or are you two not that far along in planning?

  20. ::slow clap::

  21. Hey Maria, just wanted to clarify timing... since I seem to get easily confused with this kind of stuff. =0

    So, if the sale starts at 12am, on April 7th, based on EST ~ for people on the west coast, it would technically start on April 6th in the evening. Is that right? I realize this should be pretty obvious, but I swear I have calendar/timeframe dyslexia or something, I'm always going backwards when I should go forwards, etc. Just wanted to make sure I was thinking it through correctly. Thanks for being so AWESOME!!! =)
