OMG! Nails Magazine just came out with their top 7 gift ideas for nail techs and co-workers and guess whose jewelry is #1 on the list???? MINE!  So honored and excited! http://t.co/pMS8ZaUp

*dances around*


"Nail polish jewelry from GingerKittyDesigns. I have a polish bottle-shaped necklace from her that I tend to wear to beauty shows, and at the International Beauty Expo in Long Beach, I saw Nail Files reality TV star Katie Cazorla wearing a GingerKitty bracelet that was actually created using Cazorla’s own The Painted Nail by Nubar polish line. (It’s real polish encased inside the jewelry.)"

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am a terrible blogger and have not posted in forever!  that is why I leave the blogging to you ladies and I just design jewelry instead.

I do have a few updates...so here it goes:

(1) My jewelry was worn by the gorgeous Katie Cazorla of the "Painted Nail" (and the great tv show the "Nail Files") to the Video Music Awards!  I still can not believe that three pieces of my jewelry (necklace, ring and bracelet) walked down the red carpet!  Big, huge, giant thank you to Katie for trusting me to design here some fabulous jewelry!



(2) Cult Nails Clairvoyant (formally known as Unicorn Puke) nail polish will be available on the website this weekend!  For those of you who have not seen this amazing polish....here is what it looks like in jewelry


(3) I am having a Black Friday Sale for all who follow me on Twitter or my blog :0)  Use the code FRIDAY for 25% off your entire order!

(4) I wanted to thank all of you who reached out to me when my husband was let go from his job this week.  It was a total shock and heartbreaking that his company let him go the week of Thanksgiving and a month before Christmas!  I was devastated when it happened but you were all amazing to reach out by phone, email and twitter to me.  I am truly blessed to have amazing friends and customers!  I am very thankful for all of you - thank you!

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!! 

xoxo,

OMG...Katie from the Painted Nail loves my nail polish jewelry!



While I was sitting at home reading everything I could about CosmoProf and tweeting with a few of the bloggers that were there experiencing it all (while being jealous and kicking myself for not going!)...I saw a tweet from Melissa @dailynail that she had just met Katie from @thepaintednail.  I responded that I loved Katie's show "The Nail Files" and her nail polishes looked fabulous and then the most amazing thing happened to me!


I started to receive some really fun tweets from Krystal at @Polish_Galore.   She was telling me that Katie Cazorla from the Painted Nail loved my jewelry.  They all all had dinner with Katie later that night and look what they sent me:


Yes...that is Katie (from the Nail Files) holding a keychain I made for Jen from @thepolishaholic.  Isn't Katie a knockout?   (I am already planning some amazing designs using The Painted Nail polish (Katie's own line of nail polish) that I am buying this week.)

The next day Katie was wonderful enough to this tweet and I almost feel off my chair!  Made my whole day (thank you Katie!)


A HUGE thank you goes out to Krystal from http://www.polishgalore.com/, Jen from http://www.thepolishaholic.com/ and Melissa from http://www.thedailynailblog.com/ and of course the amazing Katie Cazorla from http://thepaintednail.com

Taking a Vacation!

I have decided to shut my Etsy store down for the month of July!!!!  WooHoo

My 10 year old son Ryan has made the All Start team for baseball (so proud of you baby!!) and we have a very busy schedule with baseball.

I am excited to spend some quality time with my boys and hubby :0) I have not really taken any time off since I started my nail polish jewelry line. We are going to be taking a week off all together and going to Six Flags, Boston Museum of Science, Block Island, etc...

Taking last minute orders until the 29th and then I am off until August!  All of my pending orders should be shipped out by the end of the week :0)

A special thank you to all my fabulous customers for making this such a great year!

Your top 5 favorite polishes bracelet :0)

So I have 6 of these available right now and a ton more coming to me soon.  I have decided that it is easier if I sell these here than in my Etsy store because depending on the number of polishes you pick - the price changes.




Your "top 5" favorite polish bracelet:  the pricing will be as follows:

All 5 pieces the same color $35.00 + shipping. ($4.05 (US) or $5.20 International)

then add $8.00 per color choice!  My polish list:  http://gingerkittydesigns.blogspot.com/p/my-polish-list.html

These bracelets are 8 inches but I can make them smaller by shortening the chain on them if you want!

If you are interested - post here or contact me by email!  Can't wait to make some of these up for people.

Happy Monday!!!

Keychains?

I have been getting alot of requests for keychains lately and I wanted to ask your opinions on my keychain prototype....what do you think?

**keep in mind this is just a prototype. The "jumpring" that would attach the keychain to the piece would be bigger and stronger...I just do not have any handy for the photo.
