Happy Hands Nail Polish, 2.0!

Today I have some very exciting news... Happy Hands Nail Polish will now have a completely new image! What does that mean? Well, how do you feel about this:


For British Eyes Only

I am excited to announce that this is what the new bottles will look like. I wanted square bottles, because they fit nicely together and take up less room (while still holding 15mL of product). They are not too tall, however, and are a smidge taller than A England bottles but a bit shorter than Orly, FingerPaints, etc. and therefore still fit perfectly in Helmers and Melmers! The best improvement is that the new bottles come with a  wider brush for better application. Don't be alarmed though - these brushes are still thinner than some of the annoying paddle brushes like Sinful and Sally Hansen. I will try to post some comparisons by next week!

As for the labels, I wanted something that still gave a handmade, indie feel but looked nicer than the labels I used before. I am absolutely in love with these Kraft labels and feel they perfectly fit with the Happy Hands Nail Polish brand, don't you? And a special thanks to my good friend Dani for helping me create these labels as well as a few other graphics you'll see on the Etsy page and my business cards.

 Above, you can see how the bottles are now labelled for each color. Much less bulky, don't you think?

 Along with this new look, I am finding that I will need to raise the prices a bit. I wish it's something I didn't have to do because I love having a lower price point in the indie market, but I also need to be able to continue to offer new collections and to expand! The new price point will be $10 per bottle, and this price increase will occur with the sale of the new bottles. I hope that you will continue to find my polishes worth the price, especially now that I've upgraded to a better-looking, more appealing product!

As I announced on Facebook, the shop will not be restocked this weekend (Oct. 20th) because I will be out of town visiting a friend, but beginning Oct. 27 the shop will be stocked with the new bottles and with the new $10 price. Also, I will be updating the Happy Hands Nail Polish page on my blog to reflect this new information.

I hope you are all as excited as I am! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to comment on this blog post, send me a message via Etsy, or contact me at [ haphaphappyhands@gmail.com ] Thanks for the support!
