Pretty & Polished Pre-order details

EDIT: This pre-order is only for US and Canada.  Please feel free to have a friend from the US or Canada order for you if you live overseas.

Good evening everyone! I am going to be outlining all of the pre-order details in this post. I hope that you read it carefully otherwise you may miss out. The pre-order will be done completely differently this time around.

In order to receive the pre-order form you must fill out the following form and answer the questions correctly:

This form will be used to send you out important updates about the pre-order as well as SEND you the pre-order form. So this is something you HAVE to fill out to even be a part of this pre-order.

EDIT: I will be closing the form tonight Monday 7/16 at 8 PM EST. More people than I expected have signed up and I do not want to run out of the materials I need to send everyone what they want. 
Thank you for understanding.

I will close this form on Wednesday of next week (4 days from now 7/18). I will begin emailing the order form out to each person who requested an order form starting Tuesday. You will have until next Saturday 7/21 to get your orders in and I will begin invoicing at that time. This is the order you will be receiving invoices (according to your first name)  A-F, G-L, M-R, and S-Z. Once you have been invoiced you only have 24 hours to pay. Once that 24 hours is over if you have not paid your invoice WILL be canceled and you will not have another chance to pre-order this time around. Doing it this way will help my assistant and I know exactly who paid what. Last time it was very hard keeping track of who paid and who didn't because the invoice only shows email addresses and not always the one I was provided with.

After you have been invoiced you will have a 3-4 week wait on receiving your packages. I do not expect it to take NEARLY that long but I don't know how many people are going to pre-order and I do not want to stretch myself too thin and not be able to deliver when I say I will.

Also, once you have filled out the pre-order form you CANNOT change your order. The only change you will be allowed to make is to cancel your order all together.

Polishes and Price info:
Last pre-order the prices were $9.50 for a full size and $5.25 for minis. This will not be the case this time around.
BUT, there will be a slight increase because of the extra work load of doing a pre-order. The full size polishes will be $9 each and Minis will be $5 each.
Shipping will the same as on etsy. $2.85 for first item an $.50 for each additional item.
For Canada: $4 for first item and $.50 for each additional item.

Available polishes:

Full size only:
Hearts & Daggers
Punk'd Up Betty (there is a possibility that not everyone will get to order this polish)

Full & Mini:
Sand Art (there is a possibility that not everyone will get to order this polish)
Pool Party
Hello Dolly
Elvis' Pink Cadillac
The entire Summer Camp Collection including: PHAT Camp, Cheer Camp, Boot Camp, and Peace Camp
Party on my Yacht
Candy Coated
Beach Bum
Beach Bunny
On Equal Ground
Bubble Tea
Black Swan

Some of the polishes not listed here will still be randomly available on etsy. I do not want to add certain polishes to the pre-order because I can only make so many of them or they are LE polishes like my zodiac polishes and Amo. Sand Art will be sold on etsy once more before I am pretty much completely out of it. I will not add it to the pre-order because I would only be able to supply around 20-30 people with it and it might be all gone before I get to the second batch of invoicing.

I still reserve the right to refund you for any polish I may run out of materials to make. I feel like I am stocked up on almost everything I need but there can be snags and you may receive a refund for a polish. If this is an issue and you wish to cancel your entire order I will refund you in full.

Questions and comments can be emailed to me at [email protected]

    No Sand Art?

    1. AmierzJuly 14, 2012 at 5:46 PM

      Read the whole post and it will explain everything :)

      Sand Art has been added to the list but there is a chance that I will run out of supplies before filling everyone's orders.

    Is doing the pre order the only way to get them, or can we just wait and see and try our luck with what goes up on etsy?

    1. Pretty and Polished LadyJuly 14, 2012 at 9:19 PM

      I will still be listing on etsy but not as much and not all these polishes will be available on etsy until after the pre-order.

  • DianaJuly 14, 2012 at 6:08 PM

    ^ She explained in there that she hasn't been able to get the glitter for Sand Art, so can not add it to the list unless she does.

    Thanks for this! Certainly makes it a lot easier and stress-free (well, for us at least!) :) It seems like you have a lot more kinks taken care of this time around, hopefully everything will go smoothly for you.

    Will you be able to ship internationally?

    1. Kelz86July 14, 2012 at 6:49 PM

      I would also love to know this? I really want to get some =)

    2. Pretty and Polished LadyJuly 14, 2012 at 9:20 PM

      Unfortunately not at this time. My sincerest apologies.

    This is a great, fair way of doing pre-orders. Thanks a lot (also for including us often-forgotten Canadians)!

    will Punk'd up Betty be available from Llarowe? i really want that one, so I'm considering finding a nice american nail-friend to preorder through :)

  • JasJuly 17, 2012 at 1:11 AM

    I'm really sad I can't order due to the international thing. Sucks alot :(

  • CharisseJuly 24, 2012 at 1:47 PM

    Do you know when we can expect colors to be up on etsy? I just discovered your work and am in love! Would like to purchase a couple.
