NEWS: Elevation Polish 4th Annual Auction and Sales for Charity

Lulu, Yeti and Friends presents…..

The Elevation Polish 4th Annual Auction and Sales for charity.

Indies most certainly do it better!!!! Why you might ask?

Aside from making the best creative polishes, having great customer service and passion for what we do. We have huge hearts and do what we can to support our local community. So what happens when you’ve got a lone polish maker with dream to go big with her annual charity event and mix that up with a community of makers who want to help…. You get the most amazing line up to date! OMGoodness it’s amazing! The polishes and the makers in this years event is crazy. (Great friends and ones I’ve never worked with before!) I can’t wait to share some of the polishes with you all. I’m overwhelmed with all the generosity and love polish makers have shared with me. I get to pass on to you and then pass that on to Chrestomathy, Inc.

It’s going to be an amazing year! So let’s talk details. For those of you who aren’t familiar with how I run the event. I break it down into two events. A sales portion which has reasonably priced items ($12.00-$40.00) and then the auction portion (Bids start at $10.00). So it’s easy to give a little or to give a lot. Either way you participate, you’ll be mailed off a fabulous polish with 100% of the sales and/or auction prices going to Chrestomathy, Inc.

Who is Chrestomathy, Inc?
Chrestomathy is a day training and habilitation service for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The three program sites are located in Minneapolis, Minnesota and in the nearby suburbs of Eden Prairie and Burnsville, MN. Unlike most other programs serving my area, Chrestomathy is a specialized and relatively small company. Founded in 1985, their success can be attributed to our commitment to excellence, our commitment to working with individuals with complex needs and their positive, proactive approach to working with the individuals they serve.

Why is this Chrestomathy important to me (Lulu)?
I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of this great service for many years. Linda L. Moore is the executive director, a psychologist, founder of Chrestomathy, and she just so happens to also be my mother in law. Over the 15+ years I’ve had the pleasure of helping chrestomathy with little odd jobs here and there. I’ve personally heard and seen the challenges of both the clients they serve and also the intricacies of running a program like this. Seeing clients have positive experiences first hand and over coming challenges, it’s amazing. I’m so proud to be able to say that Elevation Polish has made a positive mark on a few clients.

Donations past
2013, We were able to donate $9,895.00. Which went directly into the clients hands via iPads. iPads are a unique, creative and amazing way for non-verbal clients to express themselves and their needs. Communication at a touch of a screen! While we all take communication for granted watching someone who was unable to communicate effectively, how they are feeling and then suddenly be able to is one of the most amazing sights in the world. I’ll take that sight over a mountain any day! In 2014, we decided to donate toward the same thing, iPads. We raised $7,401.94. That was a lot of iPads. We showed the iPads we purchased on Instagram.
If you want to check out the donation pages from years passed here are links (I can’t seem to find the blog post with 2012)

2014 (Scroll to Nov 7th, 2014)

This year we are going big. We want to be able to provide something truly special for Chrestomathy, Inc this year. The big donation this year will go toward multiple things, site improvements, more communication devices (iPads) and hopefully something even bigger if we can hit the target we are hoping for. Like always I’ll share the donation amount on my blog and/or Facebook and also show what your donations went to.

WHEN:
October 12th will be the sales portion
October 12th-October 17th will be the auction portion

WHERE:
Sales portion will be held on a dedicated big cartel site with a 10 minute cart hold
Chrestomathy, Inc’s Bigcartel (Link will be active closer to the date so they don’t have to pay for the months not in use)
The auction portion will take place on eBay just like last year
Chrestomathy, Inc’s Ebay Account

Just a couple of notes about the event:

  • Customer Service for the event will be handled by us (elevation polish) If you have questions please direct your emails to elevationpolish <at> gmail
  • The paypal account used for the event is the Chrestomathy, Inc one. We’ve been given brief access to it so we can process shipping.
  • Shipping supplies have been provided by us (Elevation Polish) so the money normally used for that can go toward the eBay fees.
  • Items from the eBay event can not combine with items from the bigcartel shop. (two different sites, hard as heck to combine)
  • FAQ for the event (coming soon) will be on www.elevationpolish.com on the left hand menu.

Want to send a shout out to the mountain tops to all of my customers for always opening their hearts and their pocketbooks for amazing causes like this one. It means so much to me that your share your kind hearts and generosity with me.

Don’t want to wait to make a donation to Chrestomathy, Inc….

YAY!!!!! This is going to be amazing. I’ll be sharing little sneak “peaks” on my instagram account with the hashtag #elevationpolish & #EVP4CI2015 (EVP 4 CI 2015 all together.) Stay up to date about the progress of the event on our Facebook page.

Cheers to amazing polishes,

NEWS: In with the new out with the old

It’s that time again. We here at elevation polish love to keep our store fresh, exciting and always rotating. Which means making room in our catalog for new colors.

We’ve got so many new colors planned for the future but our shelves are full. The following polishes will be discontinued. They will be stocked in August, then one final small batch of each will be released in September then after that they will no longer be stocked. Normally, I like giving way more notice this but I fell behind in making this announcement. Yikes!

September will be the last time Yeti’s healing vibes will be restocked. Final donation will be made on September 30th. The donation will include donations from July and August. Lets make this last donation a doozy!!!! :)

Muztagh Ata while a huge long time favorite will be discontinued right away. There was a batch variance with one of our supplies and it doesn’t look the same as before. We are going to take some time to reformulate and reincarnate so something similar will be in a future line up.

Khongoryn Els will be backordered until our shimmers arrive. They gave me an estimate of 45 days but hopefully sooner. When we run out of stock, we will hide the listing until the next batch is ready. Usually we do hide the listings on any polish we have to wait for ingredients for, normally longer than 30 days.

& Finally News about Angels are the Yetis of the clouds
I know you’ve all been stalking the site waiting for the batch of Angel yeti to be released as per our last post about it. We did receive a large number of emails which expressed some valid concerns about how the polish will be released. Some of those emails included suggestions which we have been taking into account. We decided it would be the best course of action to release them while we release SBPs, They won’t be included in the SBP cap. We will have more details on this when we announce the SBPs sale for September.

As September approaches, a month with no new collections. It’s the month I use to edit and do some final creation for all the winter collections and into spring (as well as organizing business receipts for taxes, omgoodness yuck). What colors are you most excited to see this winter? Any finish types you’d like to see me testing or adding to collections? I’ve got some amazing stuff up my sleeve but I always appreciate hearing your feedback.

Cheers to amazing polishes,
Lulu

Elevation Pahlish Marco Polo Collections!!!

MARCO POLO COLLECTION IS ALMOST HERE! 

Launching August 7th at 9pm at elevationpolish.com This is a different kind of collection. It to me is one of the most unique and special collections I’ve done.

Let me set the scene for you: What happens when you take two close friends, who also happen to share a passion for making nail polish, and share of love of geography, documentaries and Netflix?

You end up with two makers trying to call dibs on a collection inspired by Netflix’s series Marco Polo. Instead of one of us resigning to let the other one take the inspiration. Elevation and Pahlish over the years have had more than a few colors, finish types, names that have overlapped. We made the agreement after years of “fighting it” (aka: 2am phone calls of asking each other if we have something similar in our respective line ups) We changed those conversations into talking about sharing inspiration, love of our favorite colors, and finish types to create two different collections. Same inspiration, at the same time and see where it took us.

We did help and guide each other along the way. Each collection, Elevation’s Marco Polo and Pahlish’s Marco Polo represents our individual, unique visions and take on Marco Polo’s journey.

THE VENETIAN DUO 

We started off by creating something together. The Venetian Duo. Which consists of The Merchants Son (Elevation) and The Wayfarer (Pahlish). A duo that is meant to work together in polish harmony.  Venice is where Marco Polo began his journey and it’s where we began ours. The $22.00 limited edition collaborative duo will be available in our shops only for the month of August.

The Merchants Son: Thermal aqua/turquoise when hot and dusty teal when cold with lots of green micro shimmer that ends up subtle on the nail. Thinner polish style for me, light thin 3 coats for full coverage. The thermal aspect of the polish will be active for approx. 6 months and after that, it will rest closer to the color of cold but not as intense.

The Wayfarer: A versatile topper blended of platinum flake shimmer, iridescent glitter, ultra chrome flake shimmers in a variety of colors that evokes the color tones of old world venice near the water (copper, gold, green, silver, blue)

ELEVATION’S MARCO POLO COLLECTION

From there we headed off into our own creative worlds. Picking characters, places and moments that spoke to us. Here is what I was inspirited by (Might contain spoilers for those who aren’t familiar with Marco Polo’s journey):

The Latin of 4 Languages: Something that really spoke to me about marco polo’s journey was that he was known as the latin but he was also known for the fact that like me he had travelled the world and accumulated knowledge of language. A very useful skill, especially in his time. The color I choose to represent him is a red/orange metallic copper. His actions in the series reminded me of an out of control fire.

Khan of Khans: The name says it all. Gentle yet commanding of attention. Khan of Khans is a burnished olive metallic like silk clothing that the khans court would wear. Both earthy and blingy in it’s metallic-ness at the same time. I kept true to the metallic finish type, you will notice some brush strokes but it adds character the same way that the little knots on raw silk have.

Saif al Jabbar: “The sword of the giant” is a supergiant star a part of constellation Orion that helps guide the way at night. The polish is like the stars at night littered with red shift to gold shimmer and holographic pigment in a blackened base. It twinkles like the night sky. I imagine marco polo using the stars to navigate his way on the silk road.

Zhenjin: “True Gold” was the nick name of the great Khans son. I went there making the polish inspired by his character truly in your face burnished gold with medium density holographic pigment.

Le Città Invisibili: One of my favorite moments in both the show and in books about marco polo was when the great Kublai khan sat down with marco polo and explained in great detail the state and beauties of the cities under the Khan’s rule. The khan in later years didn’t venture out as far as his rule but he had many advisers to tell him about the cities including marco polo who narrated the cities with beautiful poetry and possibilities. The polish is a purple leaning taupe with ultra chrome flake shimmer in blue/purple/gold/pink

Empress Chabi: Favorite wife to Kublai and mother to Zhenjin. Empress chabi played a huge role in life under the Khans rule. She was a patron of the arts, a diplomat, and promoted Buddhism among the region. She is represented in polish form as a berry style red with blue and pink micro shimmer.

Minkh Khukh Tengri: Mongolia is known as the “Land of the Eternal Blue Sky” — Мөнх хөх тэнгэр (The Eternal blue sky) because Mongolia has over 250 days of sun a year. Tengri is Sky God and and chief deity in Mongolian and Turkic shamanism. Mongolians even still today pray to the eternal blue sky. Denim blue creme with blue and green ultra chrome flakes, blue medium sized shimmer inspired by my favorite state of blue sky.

COLLECTION INFO

Both Elevation and Pahlish’s collections will be in their usual square and round bottles. Presented with limited edition labels that have a cute gondolier on the front with elevation and pahlish names on it. The gondolier represents marco polo’s beginning and end of his journey, Venice. You may notice that bloggers have the standard elevation polish logo on the front. The blog packs went out before the labels were ready.

WHERE & HOW TO BUY

The Elevation polish Marco polo collection and the venetian duo will be available in my shop elevationpolish.com Launching August 7th at 9PM, central and restocked on August 22nd at 9AM, central. The special Elevation Pahlish Gondolier label will only be available the month of August. After that any polishes that are moved into the core line from this collection will have a standard Elevation label. Check out our Facebook and instagram (@elevationpolish) for swatches and pictures of the collection.

The Pahlish Marco Polo collection and venetian duo will be available launching August 2nd with restocks on Sundays 7PM, central at pahlish.com Check out their facebook and instagram (@pahlish) for swatches and pictures of the collection.

A limited number of full Elevation Pahlish Marco Polo Collection sets (includes venetian duo so 16 polishes total) will be available in each of our shops with special full set pricing (free shipping.)

So what do you think of the collection? Did you check out Marco Polo on Netflix?

Cheers,

Lulu

Lulu’s Cosmoprof (CPNA) overview, through an indie makers eyes

Hi Everyone

I have a different kind of post for you today. I wanted to share with you all my experience at Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) Convention. For those who don’t know Cosmoprof is a business-to-business beauty trade show event in North America. Held each year in Las Vegas, NV. This was my second year going. I wanted to share what it is like through my eyes. Each person has their own experience and takes away different things from the events. Experiences may vary. Overall, I would say it was again a positive experience.

This year I decided to do things a little differently. There wasn’t a whole lot to do at the convention itself, me myself being a manufacturer, the convention really isn’t catered to me. It’s aimed more toward press and buyers. I wasn’t displaying at the event proper so I didn’t end up going to the show floor. However, it didn’t mean I wasn’t busy. Oh no, on the contrary. This was the busiest year for me and a big year for indies.

Shine and Social 2015, Candid photo

Day 1: The most exciting day for me. This year I had the pleasure of being able to host Shine and Social 2015. The previous host Jennifer (Wonder Beauty Products) allowed me with my co-host Shannon (Pahlish) to take over. Shine and Social 2015 was geared toward meeting and greeting bloggers and indie makers the day before the show floor opened. Last year we didn’t know anybody and it was nice to have an event before the convention to put faces to names. That way when we saw people out and about we knew who they were and could say hello.

Me (Lulu), Shannon (Pahlish) and Jennifer (Wonder beauty products)

It was a fabulous event we hosted at the Four Seasons press lounge. The turn out was amazing. I really enjoyed catching up with old friends, fellow makers, familiar bloggers and some new ones. I got pretty welled up at the turn out for our event. It really means a great deal to me that so many indie bloggers and brands showed up. It showed, that us indies mean business and can take things seriously while still showing our special brand of uniqueness and fun. To keep things even more fun we held a raffle for some amazing prizes. Huge thank you to the sponsors of the giveaway items.

Secretly, well not so secretly, I wish I weren’t hosting so I could have won any number of the prizes. They all went to great people. I can’t wait to see how they utilize the prizes. My second time nearing well up was during Shannon’s speech to say thank you to all the attendees. Sometimes when your in the thick of business you forget to thank the people who make our businesses such a success. The bloggers who put so much effort into their posts with pictures, reviews and emails and to the husbands who put up with always talking about polishes and also for the husbands who support our businesses and are really involved. It was really a heart felt speech. I’m so glad shannon made the speech because I’m too much of a shy, sap to make public speeches like that.

Huge Thank you to Shannon who is always the ying to my yang. Our strong points always compliment each others. We can now check off another great adventure together.

Shannon (Pahlish) and Nate (Emerald and Ash) finally figuring out a selfie stick

Day 2: After a late night of reflection and great company (really how many people does it take to figure out how a selfie stick works, LOL).

It was on to the second indie event the next day. This one was serious business. Cocktails and Colors. Hosted by Jill (Glisten & Glow), Sara (Cupcake Polish), Missi (Different Dimensions) and Linda (Nail Vinyls). The highlight event for indies and indie nail bloggers. Hosted at Addiction Bar, Rumor Boutique Hotel. This is where us makers got to display our products, share stories of our brands, share up coming collections. The swag bags (for bloggers and media) for this event were of the epic variety. Everyone put in the best of the best of their products for media to take home. The indie displays this year were amazing!!!! I mean indie brought their A-game for their displays putting the big brands to shame (at least I felt that way) Glowing lights, big displays, gorgeous products everywhere. Honestly, I could look anywhere in the room at the displays and see polishes I wanted on my nails ASAP. The hosts did an amazing job, every detail you could tell was well thought out.

Pam’s Display (Girly Bits Cosmetics) at cocktails and colors 2015

For me the event really solidified how much our community has grown, how lively we all are, and how polish really brings people together. For instance, I finally got to meet someone face to face that I’ve known on the internet for some time now. Gosia from Life in Color between her and I we have travelled the world and climbed in some pretty amazing places. She is someone who has seen a lot of places I’ve seen and even named polishes after. You may remember I did a guest post on her blog while she was away climbing everest (yup, everest and she even summited!) Again, the sap that I am, got really sentimental talking with her.

Me (Lulu) and Gosia (Life in Color) at Shine and Social 2015

Even still the gals that I met last year it was great to catch up with. So many brands and blogs have grown this past year. It was so nice to share in the excitement of everything we all have accomplished and will accomplish this year. The night ended in candid moments, friends, and lounging, oh and pancakes evening wouldn’t have been complete without 4 am pancakes with Shannon (Pahlish) and Pam (Girly Bits Cosmetics). I couldn’t think of a better ending.

Day 3 and 4: Tearful goodbyes to those who had to leave early and those faces I won’t see again for another year. Also a rare moment. I took my maker hat off for the day and became not Lulu of elevation polish but assistant to one of my favorite bloggers. Ida of Ida Nails it. She is going to be a busy busy blogger. I helped her for the day. Helping take pictures, and put together a huge box to ship home to her. It was an amazing role reversal since she always helps me. I also spent a good deal of time cleaning up the whirl wind that was my hotel room. Water bottles everywhere… I mean everywhere. LOL I got a little time to enjoy some personal tasks like great music, roaming The Wynn and hunting down one of my favorite handbag companies flagship stores. Ashley and Nate of Emerald and Ash joined me for the day.

Day 5: Most other people had left but I usually stay behind a day to gather my thoughts, reflect and relax. Jill, Sara, Missi and Linda adopted me for the day. They like always are amazing and gracious not only extending their host duties to one night but several nights. Without them I wouldn’t have gotten those last couple of laughs in before returning home.

Overall, my experience was great. What I took away is friendships built upon, great polishes in the works, memories not soon forgotten, and many lucks given to all who work hard and put their all into doing what they love. I’m so glad that I can share my passion with others who understand all facets of what we put into our businesses.

I hope you all enjoyed a glimpse into the life of. :) Want to see more (more professional non-Lulu photos, LOL) check out the hashtags #shineandsocial2015 #cocktailsandcolors2015 #colorsandcocktails2015 #CPNA #Cosmoprofna

Cheers to great polishes,

Changes to restocks, news about SBPs, etc.

Hello Everyone

We have decided to make some changes to how we restock SBPs. While I know this may be an unpopular change at first. I think overall once we’ve done it a couple of times it will feel a little more fair.

There are a couple of reasons we decided to change things up.

  • We want to put the focus back on the core line of polishes. It takes me months and months to come up with concept, test, re-test, edit collections, wear test, pictures, blog posts. A lot of time and love goes into polishes that make the core line up.
  • We want them to be enjoyed by as many people as possible. We think the new set up will allow for that.
  • Our website was having difficulty dealing with the amount of traffic and refreshing. By grouping them all together with the larger availability we should have less errors with the site. We did test this concept late at night. There were a few of you that caught us, mid test.

So what will the changes be?

We will no longer offer SBPs monthly.

Instead will be will offering them seasonally. Once every 3 months/ 4 times a year. First stock of them will be offered September. The months they are offered, they will be stocked on the 7th and 22nd. On the future colors page will be show which months they are available. We will have 3 months worth of SBPs offered each time they are launched so it will range anywhere from 9-13 SBPs which would be a total of 270-390 polishes. We will set the limit at 2 polishes per seasonal launch per household. We felt like it will be easier to get them in the hands of everyone who wants them.

Samples will be continued to be offered monthly. We will have 18-30 sample polishes each month. There will be a limit of 1 polish per household per month.

What are samples and SBPs and why do I offer them?

Samples are just that samples. They range in quantity of 1-3 polishes. They are the rawest form of concept polishes. They are to test pigments, glitters, shimmers, color combinations and concepts

SBPs are samples that made it to the next level of concept. To see if samples can be scaled to a larger (30 bottle) batch without problems and in some cases SBPs are polishes that I made for myself to enjoy but it was easier to make them on a larger scale. (in most cases they will be called SBSs “small batch samples”)

Why I offer them. It’s pretty simple. It’s win/win for both you the customer and me the maker. It a way to recoup research and development costs on polishes that are perfectly usable but didn’t end up making the cut. Because I can keep my research and development costs low it means I can pass on the savings making the core line more cost efficient and I get the bonus of trying formulas out that might be a little more daring.

How are SBPs and SBSs named? 

Unlike the core line which theme and name come first SBPs are made first and the names comes second. We have a list of memorable ideas, places, objects, songs that we pull from. Here are two examples of how that works.

Iced Mocha: Recently one of the mystery polishes. It was made as a polish for myself. It wasn’t originally holo-ed. I loved that concept and color way. I made one and to get the formula right I kept up scaling it for a smoother application. Once I reached the desired thinness. I bottled a couple for myself. Then I was like. Oh I wonder what it would look like with holo. So I added holo, thinned it some more and ended up with 20 bottles. The result was very much like an iced mocha. So the name came naturally.

Reflections off Namakan & Tithonia: Both were active prototypes for Shinjuku Golden Gai. We had such a hard time deciding which of the 3 concepts to go with. Tithonia named after the  sunflower that reminded us of a trip to south america we took. The formula we thought was a bit on the thick side so we opted to rule that one out.

Reflections of Namakin was the front runner for Shinjuku Golden Gai for a long time. We ultimately decided it was a bit too strange in concept to have a full blown release. It was named after a special lake to my husband. Its one of his favorite lakes to canoe in.

Why beautiful polishes don’t make the cut…

There are a few polishes that we have released as SBPs that keep people wondering why they didn’t make the cut. There are so many factors. I’m going to list a couple of them

  • Formula issues… (whitening issues, thickness, not enough suspension, etc)
  • Shimmers/Ingredients not available anymore. (sometimes I test so far in advance by the time they would make the cut the shimmers/ingredients are no longer available.)
  • It didn’t fit into a collection (I will hold these ones for a while, up to 6 months to make sure I can’t fit them into a collection before they become an SBP)
  • They are frankens (sometimes when I test a new shimmer or concept I will use preexisting polishes to make sure I like the concept before I break it down to be replicated. It’s an easy way to test a concept without being fully committed to hours and hours of labor making a base color. preexisting polishes aren’t easy to come by in large enough quantities for a full scale release.

Which leads me to Angels are the yetis of the clouds…….

I know there has been a lot of chatter about making this a core color. And for the reason above, it has been a true challenge. It is a franken. to make a 20 bottle batch I would have to secure 12 bottles of preexisting nail polish to make it. I have tried to break it down and make it on my own but there is something not right about the formula. Trust me, I’ve tried so many times and failed batch after failed batch, I decided there is nothing like the original franken formula.

That said…. Here is the good news. I’ve made arrangements to secure enough for 1 batch per month. 20 bottles. I will be doing this monthly as long as I’ve got the ingredients. I will not announce when they will be stocked. It could be 2am on the 16th or 4pm on a tuesday, who knows. In order to keep it as fair as possible I won’t be making an announcement when they will be stocked, it’s totally random, no hints, first come first served. The first batch will be released sometime in July.

Phew that is a long post. Please let me know your thoughts on the new changes. While nothing is ever perfect, this proved to be the least taxing on our resources and the most impactful in a good way for you the customer. We are open to other ideas but please also note that we have been working on solutions for a long time. We had several ideas and this one seemed the best.

EDIT: I want to thank you all for support, concerns, and feedback. My email is currently clogged with the overwhelming response this post has caused. It may take me a couple of days to respond to all the emails.

We have looked into a lot of different ways to make things better and a more enjoyable experience. We have thought long and hard about so many different ways to both get SBPs in the hands of people who haven’t gotten them and lessen the burden on our site. Aside from no longer offering any type of special polishes, we are going to try to see if this works. I know change is hard, which is why we didn’t act impulsively in making this decision.

Cheers to great polishes.
