Hey guys!! So you obviously clicked on this page to read more about who I am.
I stared working online back in 2010 and GlitterLambs.com was created in 2012. Glitter Lambs began as a DIY slash review blog. I would review makeup products, do diy stuff and create things and eventually started reviewing polishes. I would try to paint my nails, but didn't do a very good job at it. lol :)
In 2013 I moved into making glitter topper nail polishes. I had to search hard for this picture below. This is what they looked like when I first got started.
Then they advanced to this below :)
I didn't know a whole lot about polish making so I started out making them one at a time. I never made them up ahead of time. I would get an order for one and then make it. Every single order was done this way.....ONE AT A TIME...NEVER IN BATCHES....That was because I didn't know any better. :) I would actually dump the suspension base in the bottle and the glitter and mix with a toothpick and bang it against my hand for awhile to get it to mix up. It was the most PAINFUL PROCESS making glitter nail polishes this way. I was like...OKAY...I can't keep doing things this way or I am never going to get ahead of the game. I needed to scale this business and it was never going to happen with me doing it this way.
Then I realized that other indie polish makers were making their polishes up in batches. I was scrolling on instragram one day and came across someone mixing up a huge bucket of polish and how it was being done.
So I decided to give it a try with my glitter topper nail polish mixes.
The glitter would never quite come out right when I tried to make it in a batch. I would pour it into the bottle and it never looked the same as if I mixed it straight in the bottle.
So I went back to just making them one at a time.
This was so time consuming and was not able to grow my business this way. I was never going to get to a point where I could build an inventory up if I kept going this route.
As time went on I realized that I really loved the glitter mixing part more than making glitter nail polish so I moved into just making up glitter mixes. Talk about FUN!!!! I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy coming up with names and holiday collections even right down to taking the photos of the glitter. Sometimes I do miss making polish but then I start thinking about what my poor hand went through and I put it on the backburner. So for now I think the polish making days ship has sailed. (At least for now)
I have been thinking about adding more items to the store for arts & crafts such as wood shapes to paint on and other items. My husband and I actually run other businesses outside of just this and it's a very full time job for both of us.
I just want to say from the bottom of my heart.....a HUGE thank you to all my customers that support me and that keep coming back time after time. It means more than you will ever know.
I am not a giant company... I am a small owned business and appreciate every single order that I get. Your support for Glitter Lambs helps pay the bills and put food on the table. :)
And a side note: If you purchase from me and create something with it then please tag me in it on instagram using the hashtag #glitterlambs I LOVEEEEE seeing what you guys come up with!!!!
So I guess this is the end of the post but I thought I would just a give a sneek peek into how I got started. Thanks for reading :)
DO YOU OFFER WHOLESALE?
Not at this time
ARE YOUR GLITTERS SOLVENT RESISTANT?
No, they are not.
WILL YOUR GLITTER WORK IN NAIL POLISH?
No, they will not hold up in nail polish. However, I did test some of the fine holographic glitters that I sell and they did hold up but you will have to conduct your own testing with your suspension base to see if you get the same results. I am not recommending that you use any of our glitters for nail polish. The colors can bleed.

You will have to conduct your own testing to make sure that they hold up and that the colors don't bleed, especially the neons.
