Restock Tonight and Tomorrow!

The C&C shop will open at 10 pm EST tonight (November 25th), with half of the available stock listed, and then the other half will be listed tomorrow (November 26th) at 1 pm EST. This restock will include a few new polishes! I will combine orders between the two restock times. Please allow 4-6 business days for your package to go out.

LH07, swatched by Peachy Polish
LH07
The next single-batch limited edition polish in the LH series is LH07. LH07 will only be stocked at the above times, but it will also be available through C&C stockists. This is the biggest batch of an LH polish to date (made in a two gallon container), and it is limited to ONE per customer.

 Après-ski
I have been craving some time on the slopes so I wanted to make a polish that would remind me of my favorite ski trips! Après-ski is made with white stars, circles, and hexes; powder blue and aqua hexes; and just a hint of white and aqua shimmer.

Silent Wings and Charmed
Dreaming of Dragons
Some nights, Chaos dreams that he is a fierce dragon, soaring through the sky. The first two polishes in the new Dreaming of Dragons series are Silent Wings, a copper to green flakie polish, and Charmed, a pinkish-purple to copper flakie polish. Both will be available as regular top coats (great for putting over a variety of colors), and heavy flakie polishes (meant to be worn on their own in 2-3 coats). Expect to see two more new colors available soon, and some additional polishes incorporating the flakies in the future. 

Secret Agent Collection
In addition to the new polishes, there will be a small restock of the Secret Agent Collection tonight.

Looking Ahead
The special missions have been postponed while I wait for something important to arrive, but they are still in the works. I am also working 2 new collections! :-)

Giveaway
You could win a bottle of LH07 or a Need to Know mystery polish! The giveaway is open internationally and will end on Saturday night!

It’s Almost Time!!!

2 coats of each of the trio polishes in bright sunlight
Pre-Order Information
The shop will be open on Saturday, August 30th, 12-1 pm EDT and 9-10 pm EDT for a pre-order on Operation Vegas (LE); Echoes, Shadows, and Reflections; and the Secret Agent Collection. There will be a limit of one of each polish per customer.

The estimated turnaround time is 2-4 weeks, but please keep in mind that the actual turnaround time will depend on the number of orders that come in. If pre-orders aren’t your thing, you may want to wait until the next regular restock, or keep an eye on Mei Mei's Signatures and Norway Nails - they will be getting new shipments in September.

I have many amazing swatches/reviews of the polishes that will be available tomorrow to share with you. If you have done a swatch or review of any of them that's not in one of the lists below, feel free to post the link in the comments so we can see your beautiful work! :-)

Operation Vegas
When I went to Las Vegas for Cosmoprof last month, I brought a top secret polish with me to recruit some new agents. By request, Operation Vegas will be available tomorrow, but it will be a limited edition polish. My plan right now is to only make it available as part of tomorrow’s pre-order, with a limited quantity going out to stockists later, but it is possible that it will be reactivated in the future.

Operation Vegas is a blackened red-purple holographic polish with additional multicolored sparkles and red shimmer. It will retail for $12.50 and come with a never before seen polish-exclusive 1-inch button.

Echoes, Shadows, and Reflections
Echoes, Shadows, and Reflections is a trio of jellies, each with 5 different holographic micro glitters/pigments that are very thin for extra sparkliness. Echoes is a magenta/red/berry color, Shadows is dark purple, and Reflections is blue. Each polish will retail for $10.50, but you can purchase all three together for $30. Each of these will come with one origami star for good luck.

Label Change
I do have one change that I wanted to let you know about - I have been testing a variety of labels (for the bottom of the bottle, where the name of the polish goes) and I have finally found *the one* to replace the current label. You will begin seeing these starting with the pre-order bottles. :-)

Mysterious Activity... Vaguely Explained?!?
C&C secret island headquarters issued a press release stating that at some point soon, there will be a series of extra special missions. These missions will be reminiscent of past events that do not happen all that frequently. More information will be revealed as it becomes available.

Mission Update


Restock Information
The shop will be up for a preview later tonight, and then will go dark around 2:45 pm EDT tomorrow to prepare for the restock at 3:00. This is not a pre-order, but there will be quite a bit of polish available. There will be a limit of 2 of each polish per customer, and the estimated turnaround time for order processing will be 5-9 days for everything except pre-packed collection sets (which will ship 1-2 days after the restock). Polish quantity ratios were based on the data from the pre-order, so hopefully you will be able to get the colors that you want. In the event that you are not able to successfully complete your mission, please keep in mind that I will start working to restock the collection again when I finish shipping, and I will also be getting more polish out to my stockists as soon as possible.

Shipping the Collection Box
If you are having the complete set shipped to someone to forward to you, please let them know that after they check to make sure everything arrived safely, it is very important to put the lid of the gold box back on firmly so that the polishes won't bump into each other and break during shipping. Alternatively, if you'd like me to pack the polishes individually in bubble wrap next to the gold box instead of inside it, I can definitely do that for you - just leave me a note when you check out.

Customer Service
My goal is for you to love each new bottle that you add to your Chaos & Crocodiles nail lacquer family. I really treasure the notes from happy customers - they mean more to me than you could ever know. But while I am delighted to hear from you when you are pleased with your polishes, I do appreciate all feedback, so if you have any problems, feel free to send me an email as well.

NTK Giveaway Reminder
Chaos and I have enjoyed learning about how talented our agents are! We feel very lucky to have you on the team (and even luckier to have you not working for our spy adversaries). ;-) The giveaway closes tomorrow night, so don't forget to enter if you haven't yet!

Mysterious Activity
There has been chatter about mysterious activity at C&C Headquarters. Right now it's top secret, but you might want to keep your ear to the ground...

Operation Pre-Order [Updated]

Welcome, Agents!
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to complete the Chaos & Crocodiles pre-order by visiting the C&C website on June 24, 2014 either between 1-2 pm EDT or 9-10 pm EDT. Since there are two times, you can choose the one that is more convenient for you. :-) After you successfully complete your mission, please allow 2-4 weeks for your order to be completed. Please begin your training for the mission by reading the following field notes.

International Intelligence
Both Mei Mei’s Signatures and Norway Nails will be getting a C&C shipment soon that will include the Secret Agent Collection.

C&C Updates
Have you noticed that the C&C bottles look a little bit different? The bottle style and flat brush are the same, but our logo will now be printed on the glass, and each bottle will come with a beautiful new rubberized cap. All polishes in the pre-order will come in the printed bottles with rubberized caps, and so will the shipments the stockists receive. Our ingredients list has been updated as well.

Pre-Order Polishes 
The site preview is up! Our cute little pinback buttons are back by request, and the new collection (including a listing for the entire set) is on the site. Soliloquy and Boardwalk Taffy Shop have a limit of one per customer - this includes if you purchased one at the last restock. I have also decided to put a two per customer limit on the other polishes in the shop to help make sure that everyone gets theirs in a timely manner. If this is a problem for you, feel free to send me an email.

The Secret Agent Collection 
The collection contains 10 linear holographic polishes: Security Breach (red with yellow flakies and gold sparkles), Interrogation (coral-leaning orange), Subterfuge (gold with pink flakies and blue sparkles), Night Vision (light green), Cipher (blue-leaning teal), Sleeper Cell (blue), Reconnaissance (purple), Protocol (orchid/fuchsia with purple flakies), Black Ops (black with multi-colored shimmer), and Decoy (silvered lavender). These polishes will retail in the shop for $12.50 each.

Secret Agent Collection Bonuses
There will be some different bonuses that go with this collection instead of lucky stars.
  • Every order that includes at least one polish from the collection will come with a C&C sticker and Secret Agent ID card.
  • Order 3 or more polishes from the collection and you will also get a 1.5-inch Secret Agent pin.
  • Order 5 or more polishes from the collection and you will also get a C&C Secret Agent dog tag, complete with 24 inch ball chain.
  • Order the complete collection (there will be a listing for this) and it will come in a gift box! You will also get a $10 gift certificate (non-transferable) to use on a future purchase. 
  
Pre-Order Disclaimer
To prepare for the pre-order, I have acquired many supplies, and I have more on the way. However, in the event that I run out of supplies to make a certain polish and I can’t get more in quickly, I will contact you, refund your money, and give you the option to reserve the polish for when supplies become available again.

Staining
I have been working on the Secret Agent Collection since December, creating prototype after prototype. In the end, the formulas I chose for the collection had both optimal sparkle and opacity. I did a lot of testing to minimize staining, but there are some yellow pigments on the warm side of the rainbow. For this reason, I recommend using a base coat if you are concerned about stains.

Swatches
The first swatches of the Secret Agent Collection will be coming from Debbie of Running with Lacquer and Valesha of Peachy Polish. Huge thanks to these two fantastic ladies!

Win a Limited Edition Mystery Polish
This is going to be a short giveaway, so make sure that you don't wait too long to enter if you want to participate! I will be giving away a polish in the new Need To Know (NTK) series, which is the secret agent version of a mystery polish. To enter, complete the options in the Rafflecopter below. The winner must have a US shipping address. The giveaway will end at 10:00 pm EDT on Tuesday, June 24th, and the winner will be announced the next day. Good luck!

Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you on Tuesday! :-)

Argh!

The restock today did not go very smoothly. :-/ There was a lot of glitching and overselling. If your order went through, please allow some extra processing time so that I can sort through everything. I will fulfill all orders that I can, however since I think that the single-batch polishes oversold, I will be in touch with the customers whose orders went in last about their options. Also, there is usually a ten minute cart hold on the site, so any cartjacking that went on was accidental. I promise I did not send any pirates after you. :-P

To hopefully make up for the problems from today, the next restock will be a pre-order and will include the new collection, everything from the restock (although please read the next paragraph about the two single-batch polishes), and maybe a few other returning polishes if I have time.

As for the single-batch polishes, I am going to see if I can get the supplies to offer a second batch for the pre-order. This is not something I would normally do, but I feel that what happened today was not fair - people who may have been first to put polishes in their cart did not necessarily get them.

I’m so, so sorry if you were inconvenienced in any way today. Please let me know if you have any thoughts, and hopefully I will see you again in the future for more polish. :-)

C&C News


I have decided to squeeze in a small restock before I launch the new collection, so the C&C shop will be open on Saturday, May 17th (time TBA). There will be some returning polishes, two new polishes for the regular lineup, one new limited edition, and possibly a few special surprises!

Chaos & Crocodiles PRE-ORDER Tonight!

Tonight's restock will be a pre-order and will take place from 9-10 pm EST at www.ChaosAndCrocodiles.com. The site will be up soon for a preview - I tried to include as many of the polishes that you asked for as possible. Some polishes are ready to go, but please allow 1-3 weeks before shipping for your order to be completed. Turnaround time will depend on the number of orders received. Since this is a pre-order, listing of the few remaining bottles of LH06 and the new small batch LEs I had planned for this restock will be postponed. Let me know if you have any questions, and I hope to see you tonight!

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Today's Restock

The restock today will be at 3 pm EST. I'm working on getting everything set up on the site, so I hope you don't mind that I'm just going to do a quick announcement here! Today's polishes include two new LEs, the extra LH06 that I made, the Elevation/C&C duo, and some other restocked polishes. Please keep in mind that quantities of restocked polishes will be small this time because I am waiting on more bottles and labels, but I will restock again as soon as possible. The duo will not be restocked, but it will also be available in the Elevation Polish shop tonight. I hope you are as excited about the duo as I am! It was so much fun working with Lulu; she is such a wonderful person and an incredibly talented polish maker!

C&C Pre-Order Information

Photo by Atlcatsmeow
Welcome!
Thanks so much for popping over to visit the Chaos & Crocodiles blog. It means so much to me that you are interested in the polishes that I make.  

International Customers
For C&C polishes, please follow Mei Mei’s Signatures and Norway Nails to find out when the new polishes will be in stock. For pins, mirrors, or nail files, please email me (or send me a Facebook message) anytime between now and Saturday, November 23rd.

General Information
This is going to be a rather long post, so please, have a seat and get comfy! *pats couch cushion, pours refreshing beverage*

It has been quite a while since we last had a pre-order, so I’m going to give you all of the important details that will make this run smoothly, and answer some questions you may have.

The pre-order will take place on Saturday, November 23rd. It will include 9 new polishes! You can check them out on the C&C Facebook page now (swatches coming soon). It will also include several returning polishes, mirrors, pins, and glass nail files. 

Payment and Turnaround Time
Those of you who participated in the last C&C pre-order may remember filling out a form and receiving an invoice. It went very smoothly, but the invoicing process took me a long time. While I am not usually a fan of paid pre-orders, I feel that it will help me get your orders out faster, so I'd like to give it a try and use the C&C shop this time. So, it will be like a normal shopping event, except everyone will get what they want, and there will be a longer turnaround time.

My estimate for turnaround time is 2-4 weeks, depending on volume, but all orders will ship by December 20th.
  
Disclaimer :-P
To prepare for the pre-order, I have acquired many supplies, and I have more on the way. However, in the event that I run out of supplies to make a certain polish and I can’t get more in time for the holidays, I will contact you, refund your money, and give you the option to reserve the polish for when supplies become available again.

Per Customer Limit
There is NO limit on pins, mirrors, or nail files. However, please limit yourself to ONE of each polish per customer. And just to clarify, this does not mean you can only purchase one polish, it means that you can get one of every polish that you want. :-)
 
Shipping to Someone Else
If you are ordering a gift for someone, and having it sent directly to them, it counts as a separate customer (in other words, you can get them the same polish you got yourself). Also, I'd be happy to include a special message to the recipient with your order. After you place your order, please send me an email with your message.

Leaving Me A Note
I occasionally miss seeing PayPal notes, so if you make a note on your order, you may also want to send me an email to let me know.

Our New Look
C&C has gotten a bottle makeover! All pre-order polishes (not just the new ones) will come in our new bottles (still 15 ml/0.5 fl oz). The new bottles will have new labels and flat brushes. I am absolutely thrilled with the updated packaging, and I hope you love it too! <3

Mini Bottles

Unfortunately, mini bottles will not be available for the pre-order, but will return in 2014.

No Combined Shipping This Time
Since this is a pre-order and there is no time limit on a cart hold to worry about, I will not be combining orders. If you forgot something, you may place a second order, but it will ship separately.

Small Base Shipping Cost Change
The shipping cost for one full-size bottle will now be $3.00 instead of $3.25. It's just a small change, but since shipping prices usually go up, not down, I thought it was worth noting. :-)

Origami Stars
As you may know, I have been working hard to increase production each month. I don't like it when I can't make enough polish for everyone, but each time I increase production I find myself scrambling to get everything done, and it is especially difficult to make enough stars to go with the polishes. I have spent a long time thinking about what to do - not sending any stars just wasn't an option, because the polishes need their escorts to keep them safe. So my plan is to send 2 stars with each full-size bottle, and 1 star with each mini when they return. This way, your star collections will continue to grow, just a bit more slowly. I hope that no one is terribly disappointed by this change... Please let me know if you have any thoughts on the matter.

LH06... A Pre-Order Polish?
For the very first time, a polish in the LH series will be available for pre-order! But it is still a single-batch, limited edition polish! Here’s how it will work: I have made a very large quantity of LH06 already. After the pre-order period ends, I will count up the orders for LH06. If there’s more polish than orders, we’re all set. If there are more orders than polish, I’ll add to the batch to make an even bigger batch! Either way, I will post a swatch of the final version of the polish before I begin shipping orders.

Free Gifts With Purchase!
Hopefully you made it here without falling asleep. We’re almost done! *refills glass* And now for the icing on the cake! Yes, indeed!

If you spend (before shipping and tax)...
At least $20, you will get a mini bag of winter glitter shapes to decorate your manicures!
At least $70, you will also get a free C&C glass nail file in a velvet sleeve!
At least $100, you will get both of the other gifts, plus a special mystery gift!

Your gift(s) will automatically be included with your order (no code necessary).

Looking Ahead
Because of the pre-order (and another special event planned for you... So excited!), there will not be a regular restock again until 2014, so please plan accordingly.

Thank you!
I will have the site set up for a preview in advance (I'll make an announcement on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram when it is ready for you to look at). Thanks so much for taking the time to read this over, and please let me know if you have any questions!

Two New C&C Polishes to be released on Thursday!

The shop will open on October 17th at 9:00 pm EDT for the release of Pumpkin Patch Extravaganza. Pumpkin Patch Extravaganza is a mix of orange, green, and purple metallic glitters, holo gold glitters, and black and white glitters in a clear base. There are also sparse red holo circles, black pumpkins, white skulls, and glow-in-the-dark stars and hexes. Since it is a seasonal polish, it will only be available once.

Candy and Unicorns for the Princess will launch at the same time. This one is full of pink, purple, and white matte and translucent glitters with purple and blue iridescent glitters and shimmers in a clear base.  This is the polish I wore for my birthday party a couple of weeks ago, and I hope you love it as much as I do. :-)

If you plan on buying both polishes, look for the special duo listing. You'll get a slightly discounted price AND a free Chaos sticker - my birthday gift to you! *blows party horn*

There will be very large quantities of both polishes (yay)! With Halloween coming so soon, I want to keep turnaround time at 2-4 business days, so I will not be restocking other C&C polishes at this time.

The new C&C pins and mirrors will also be in the shop on Thursday. If you buy another item, they will ship for free.

The first pack of collectible pins in the series is called Autumnal Chaos. One pin features Chaos playing in a pile of leaves, and the other is a picture of Chaos dressed up as an apple for Halloween. Chaos said he wanted to be something very scary, so I'm not sure why he picked an apple. Anyway, the pins are oh-so-tiny and cute!

I absolutely adore pocket mirrors, so I've got two mirror styles for you to choose from - Chaos playing in the leaves, and Chaos who has somehow managed to tie himself to a balloon and is enjoying a scenic ride through the sky. I have very limited quantities of mirrors, but if there is a very popular style it may return in the future.

Chaos is thrilled to be featured on our C&C merchandise, and we are both very excited for Thursday!

Tonight's Restock

Happy almost fall! *throws leaves in the air* This month's restock brings us four new polishes along with some returning favorites. In addition to full-size bottles, I will be starting to bring back minis (0.24 fl oz/7ml). If both sizes are offered, the product will have a drop-down menu for you to select your size.

Although it has been wonderful to be able to find new homes for the polishes so quickly, to help ensure that more people are able to grab what they want, the magical polish making machine (also known as Sarey) has produced even larger quantities than ever of some of the polishes. There will be a little less variety this month because I've been busy working on some special projects lately. ;-) I will be stocking most of the polishes you requested, but if you don't see it on the list, I will make sure to have it again as soon as possible!

This month's new releases:
CMYK

Glitternomb (limited edition blogger collaboration with Lisa McKinley, will be restocked several times before retiring)

LH05 (single-batch limited edition)

Teddy Bears' Picnic

I'd like to thank Debbie DeMars (IG @runningwithlacquer), Lisa McKinley (Polish Misfit), and Liz Chakan (LOZLOSA) for helping to swatch the new polishes. These ladies are so talented!!! If you're not already following them, I highly recommend it!

On a side note, if you are interested in becoming a C&C swatcher/blogger, the sign up form will be available soon. :-)

Polishes that will be restocked tonight:
48 Inches or Taller
Butterfly Shenanigans
Bwahaha!
Ferris Wheel at Dusk
Muahaha!
Narwhals Are Unicorns Too
Paint the Sky
Party Games
Squee!
Take the Scenic Route

Hope to see you tonight at 8 pm EDT! If you can't make it, the next restock will be early in October and will include at least one Halloween polish!

The Story of Glitternomb


It all started a few months back when Lisa M. (Polish Misfit) posted a beautiful collage of her C&C order on her Instagram account.

She tagged the pic with #glitternomb, which I immediately thought of as a combination of glitterbomb and nom (like om nom nom). Was it a new word that I wasn't cool enough to know?



Fast forward to her beautiful 48 Inches or Taller mani.
 
There it was again! But it turned out that Glitternomb was not the latest buzzword in the nail polish world. *sad face* So I emailed Lisa and told her that I wanted to create a polish called Glitternomb, and asked if she would help me do it (since she did invent the word!). She gave me some great ideas, and I love how it turned out!

If you're interested in picking up Glitternomb (or any other C&C polishes) check back tomorrow for a blog post with restock info. Or sign up on the sidebar to get C&C posts via email! :-)

To learn more about Glitternomb, check out Lisa's blog post! And make sure to follow her on IG because she's got beautiful pictures and a video! Also, she will generously be giving away a bottle of Glitternomb when she reaches 500 followers (and she's really close)! <3

Info for July 28th [Polish List Edited to Include Harmonious]

Hello! I am so looking forward to another restock with you. <3 I have made a LOT of polish for this one! The site will be up for a preview tomorrow during the day, but it will go down for about 20 minutes before the restock.

Since there is so much polish, I’m not sure how long it will take to ship everything out. I will work through the orders as quickly as I can, but keep in mind that it’s only me here, packing up each and every polish with love. *muah!* As always, if you need your polish(es) by a specific date for some reason (e.g. wearing it for a special event, present for a friend, etc.) please let me know.

The restock will be at the Chaos & Crocodiles shop at 8:30 pm EDT. Please remember the following 4 things:

1. There is a 10 minute cart hold.
2. I will combine shipping and refund overages if necessary (I process refunds after I get everything shipped).
3. Nothing is actually sold out until there is no longer an “add to cart” button on the page. Until then, there’s a chance that someone might put the polish you want back on the shelf.
4. You are fantastic! <-- That one is really important.

Here is the polish list:
48 Inches or Taller
Anodize the Tide
Balloon Darts
Bwahaha!
Butterfly Shenanigans (New)
DDC
Ferris Wheel at Dusk
Fireside Nights
Harmonious
Heartfelt
??? I can't tell you which polish goes here, because it's a surprise!
LH04 (Single-batch LE, new)
Memories
Muahaha! (New - Congratulations to Cristina Parish, who won a bottle of Muahaha! for suggesting the name!)
Narwhals Are Unicorns Too (New)
Paint the Sky (New)
Party Games (I wasn’t planning on releasing this one until August, but I’ve got a limited quantity of bottles ready now)
Pass the Sprinkles (LE)
Rawr!
Souvenirs
Squee!
Starberry Shortcake
Take the Scenic Route (LE, New, Pictures coming soon)
Thrill Seeker
Time for a Sugar Rush

The LH series polishes are single-batch limited edition, so LH04 will not be returning again after it sells out (with the exception of two bottles where the glass formed a little funny, but I didn’t notice until after I poured them... I’m not sure what I’ll do with those yet).

If there’s something you would like that you don’t see on the list, feel free to comment below and I’ll try to have it again soon! Also, let me know if you have any questions about the restock - I do try to get to them all but with everything going on, occasionally I miss something. Anyway, thanks for stopping by, and hopefully I’ll see you tomorrow at 8:30 pm EDT! XOXO

Saturday, July 20, 2013

It's Almost Restock Time!

The next restock will be on Sunday, July 28th (sometime between 5-9 pm EDT)! The polish list and exact time will be announced soon.

News, News, NEWS!

GUESS WHAT?!? Today is the one-year anniversary of Chaos & Crocodiles! This past year has been more wonderful than I ever could have ever imagined. THANK YOOOOUUUUU!!! *blows kisses* Look for a special giveaway on Wednesday!
Available tomorrow
The shop restock tomorrow (June 25, 2013) will be at 8:15 pm EDT and it will be a mini restock because I somehow keep running out of supplies! ;-) If you are not able to get what you want, please try again at the July restock, which will be much bigger (see below for more details).
There will be a small number of Mystery Grab Bags AND a new polish on the site tomorrow. Available polishes will be listed as “Coming Soon” by tomorrow afternoon so you can plan your purchases. This will be the last restock of Cheery Blossoms and Star of the Parade before they are retired, and all orders containing Star of the Parade will ship on Wednesday or Thursday.
Speaking of Fourth of July manicures, thank you to everyone who offered water marbling tips to help me plan mine! I’ve got my colors picked out and I even tried it on one finger! What do you think? I like how it looks like confetti falling down on a parade float. :-) And I loved how easy clean up was by masking my finger with glue and peeling it off at the end. I recently saw that idea in a YouTube tutorial by Valesha on how to do a splatter mani and figured I'd give it a try. :-)
My water marble test with Star of the Parade on top... can't wait to do this for real!
If you are looking for a specific polish that is not included in this restock, there’s a good chance that it will be available at the next one. The July restock will be at the end of the month, and it will be one you don’t want to miss. LOTS of current polishes, NEW polishes, the launch of a NEW SERIES, the release of LH04, and MAYBE even some other limited edition polishes! And if all goes well, we will be bringing MINIS back. *crosses fingers*
1 coat (bottom) and 2 coats (top) of LH04 over the nail wheel - Very limited edition - 1 batch only, available in July
HAPPY CHAOS & CROCODILES DAY to you all, and I hope to see you tomorrow at the mini restock! <3

 Star of the Parade (Seasonal)

Star of the Parade over Color Club Bright Night
Star of the Parade is a red, white, and blue glitter topper with matte stars, hearts, hexes, and tiny squares. For awhile, my counter top looked like a patriotic explosion as I examined every single red, white, blue, and silver glitter that I had. But when it came down to picking the perfect combination, I wanted something simple, bright, and versatile. I hope you like Star of the Parade as much as I do!
