Hi friends! After taking a few extra weeks between updates to get some much-needed time for self care & recovery, we have LOTS of news & new items to share with you - including a SALE on our largest size jars! No code needed, read to the bottom for more info!
The springtime return of our themed Mystery Box is inspired by the Miyazaki film The Secret World of Arrietty, as well as The Borrowers book series by Mary Norton, which tell the tale of a family of tiny people who live in the walls of a home in the country.
Included will be 4 exclusive nail polishes (in your choice of full or mini size bottles) and one each of lip balm, cuticle balm, and bar soap - as well as our usual themed assortment of surprise and whimsical goodies :)
Please click here to read ALL the details - we're so excited about putting this together for you! Our mystery boxes always sell out, so get your order in ASAP!
Help stop violence & xenophobia against Asian Americans!
While we have your attention, and given current events, we want to encourage you to decry racism against Asians in your communities. (Nail polish & nail art fans, did you know our entire industry wouldn't be what it is today without Vietnamese immigrants?) Please consider supporting #HateIsAVirus, an AAPI advocacy & education group that supports tons of smaller organizations throughout the country, working to dismantle hate and racism! We will be making a donation as well, and putting them into our regular donation rotation!

As you may know, we've been low stock on our 2oz and 4oz glass jars for months, and we're still working with our supplier to get a new shipment despite pandemic-related supply chain issues. In the meantime - and until that shipment comes in - we have plenty of our large plastic jars in stock, and we've discounted that size by 15% across the board to make it easier for you to get what you want :) This includes our body cream, hydrating body butter, whipped body butter, whipped soap, and emulsified sugar scrub :)
SALE on our 9.5oz Jars!
We've added our best-selling scent, Chivalry In Space, to our available Artisan Bar Soaps. Some of you received this as a free gift over the holiday season, but now it's here for anyone to order!
More Bar Soap!
Always Winter, Never Christmas comes down on April 30thThis collection has been so much fun! We are thinking we will add 3 or 4 of your favorite scents to our general catalog - would you like that? But other than any leftovers, the bulk of this collection will be retired until at least next winter. So you have a bit of time to get in on it, but not forever!
Status of in person events - we still need your support!Sadly, the pandemic has now stretched so far into 2021 that we don't expect to be vending at any comic cons, craft fairs or similar until the fall. This may change, but at this time everything is still on hiatus or postponed.
That means we won't get to see any of your lovely faces again for a while longer! And it also means - even though many parts of our world are opening up again, people are getting vaccinated, etc - that we're still reliant on the online shop as our primary way to get our goodies into your hands.
Every time you place an order with us, you're directly supporting artists and small business. And we SO appreciate you! Thank you so much for what will soon be NINE years since we opened our doors - can you believe it?
We'll be reaching out again in a few weeks with a somewhat smaller update for April. We hope you're staying healthy, dry, and taking time for yourself when you need it :)
