$5 Sale is Almost Here! April 7th!

Do you have your calendars marked yet? Saturday marks the big day!! WAHOO!! I have to admit I'm a bit nervous. If all goes well the Divas & Drama collection arrives on Friday. That means that I will be wrapping polish burritos all night Friday night well until the wee hours of the morning. From there it is packaging orders and trying to get them all out the door so we can begin packing orders from the $5 sale. I was hoping the Divas & Drama collection would make it to me early so that I could work on packaging the $5 sale starting on Saturday. And if that isn't enough, Saturday is one of my BFF's b-day. Tonight the girls are all going out for pre-birthday drinks with the ladies group we belong to, then Saturday a few of us are taking her out to celebrate. So in the middle of the sale, I have to leave to celebrate a birthday! YIKES! It should be fun answering any Tweets or FB questions while still being present at the dinner! Oh no - I just realized I haven't bought her gift yet! What do you get a girl who loves to dress up like you, but has WAY more clothes and shoes and accessories than you? *hits head on desk* I need to find her something fantabulous!

OK back to the sale. The sale will start at midnight EST on April 7th. It will go on until 11:59PM EST on April 7th. The $5 can be used toward regular in stock polishes and treatments. (Limited Edition polishes will not be included - Toxic Seaweed & Seduction).

Based on poll results the majority wanted us to either delay the sale or allow backorders. We went with neither of these options. We came up with an entirely new option. We will hold a separate 1 day only $5 sale for the items we have on back order when the new stock arrives. Because the delay could be several weeks, we didn't want to get into a backorder situation. We will limit that sale to 2 polishes as well. So theoretically between the two sales you could end up with 4 polishes for $5! Wahoo! To make it worth your while, first you need to know which polishes are on re-order status.

Hypnotize Me actually sold out last weekend and we have already re-ordered that. So that will be included in the 2nd sale. Enigmatic, Iconic, Living Water, Let Me Fly, In a Trance and Get it On are all also scheduled for our re-order. They each have less than 200 currently available in stock right now.

We also have low stock on a few other colors, that came out of no where. We had a strong stock available when we re-ordered colors and then all the sudden sales increased and bam! now they are low stock! So a heads up if these are on your list. Awakening, My Kind of Cool Aid and Quench all have less than 200 available in stock now. We have to re-order them, but have not done it yet. Once they sell out, they could be unavailable for about 3-4 months, because unfortunately that is how long it takes with verifying the colors and formula of the new batch matches the original and all that fun stuff.

The rest should be good. I think, I hope... I think this covers all the questions. But feel free to leave any that I am not thinking of in the comments, via Twitter or on our FaceBook wall. Hope you all enjoy the sale and thank you again for all your amazing support of our small brand!

  1. I'm new to Cult Nails... so, will the lacquers be listed and automatically go into a cart a $5 or is there a promo code I should know about?
    Thanks, Shannon

  6. Yay! Can't wait! And I think your solution of having a sale at a later date with on-order polishes is an even better idea than delaying or allowing backorders. Thank you so much for this! I've been very low on money lately and this will allow me to own some more of your amazing pretties! <3

  9. If we are allowed two polishes at each sale for $5.00 each wouldn't that be four polishes for !0.00 with the two sale instead of four polishes for $5.00 Just asking because I don't want to have it be a nightmare if everyone thinks its four and its two. Or did I miss it entirely and its two polishes for $5.00?
