Elevation Polish: Samples

I get this question in my inbox all the time “So, what’s the deal with the samples/one of a kinds?”

Well I tell ya. I’ve got boxes of over 300 polishes. Just sitting there. Waiting for new homes. I decided to release them as one of a kinds/samples. Perfectly good polishes. I release them in small amounts. They normally just have numbers instead of names. In some cases I might have more than one of that color. It really depends on how far along in development the color is.

Samples are a fusion of different things. Actual samples, prototypes, frankens, custom work that wasn’t quite right yet. Here are a couple of the reasons they didn’t make the cut. Samples/One of a kinds usually fall into one of these categories.

  • The pigment is no longer available.
  • The pigment or glitter is just too expensive to be practical.
  • Pigment samples
  • Glitter samples
  • Sample combinations
  • The color was close but not exactly right.
  • The color didn’t fit into the collection.
  • Me messing around making a franken (very rare to have those up for sale but it has happened)

September Samples

You may have noticed that the samples this month have a different naming system. I decided to start a fresh. You clever ladies out there noticed when a stream of numbers/letters were posted for sale but one was missing. It gave too much of a glimpse as to what I was working on and which direction I was taking certain polishes. Like I said you guys are just too clever.

I’ve got 3 different samples that I’m not going to post until 7th. Trust me these ones are awesome. 1 of the samples is the sample that I get asked to produce the most. I won’t say which one but I used up all my available materials to produce 20 bottles of it. After that there will be no more versions of it. My supplier no longer sells a couple of the items I use to make it.

Have an awesome weekend everyone!

    Thanks again for explaining your samples to everyone. I still want to come and raid your sample room!! 🙂

  2. Just curious…are members able to buy the sample polishes before they hit your store? I have never been able to get one in my cart…even if it’s the first polish I click on…grr!! Maybe I’ll get lucky this time around and also hear good news about becoming a member?!?! Wishful thinking!!
