If you're in the Heather's Hue-t-pies Facebook group (join here-www.facebook.com/groups/HeathersHueTpies) you know that the youngest of my 5 rescue dogs was ill off and on for several weeks. This sweet girl has been through so much....after weeks of visits to the emergency vet, our regular vet, multiple xrays, bloodwork, shots, meds, fasting, food changes, and then emergency surgery on 11/13, we finally have the culprit. A piece of a rubber ball was lodged in her small intestine...my guess is that this whole time its probably been moving along in there becoming stuck and unstuck which is why she was having ups and downs, and why it wasn't showing up to our vet. Fortunately, it wasn't in her intestine long enough to damage it and she is finally on the road to recovery. I love all of my furbabies but Charlotte is my best girl and I can't wait until she is 100% her spunky self again. I took the suggestions of a dear friend and swatcher and created a special duo inspired by Charlotte to help pay off some of the vet bills. $1 of each bottle sold will also be going to the local rescue I've volunteered at and adopted Charlotte from, Saving Grace in Wake Forest, NC (www.savinggracenc.org)
This listing is for the duo set, but you can also purchase each bottle individually.
"Charlotte" is a bright pink shimmer with a touch of holo and a subtle gold shimmer. "My Wild Furchild" is much like Charlotte...beautiful with an in-your-face kind of sparkle. It has a sheer black jelly base and is packed with a mix of holo and metallic glitters in different shades of pinks, as well as a touch of violet-gold multichrome flakes.

I always use the highest quality cosmetic-grade ingredients from reputable suppliers for my polishes. Each and every polish is hand-mixed by me personally in a clean and sanitary environment. Almost every polish is made to order. I usually only mix large batches of polish a day or two prior to new collection releases.
Indie polishes are quite different from mainstream polishes. They are made and bottled with love! You'll find there is many more beautiful options when it comes to types of indie polishes. There are also some helpful hints that apply to indie polishes. First, you should always let your bottles of polish reach room temperature before opening them (especially in cold weather months). Next, please ALWAYS use 2 or more coats of a quality basecoat before applying polishes. ***DUE TO THE HIGH PIGMENTATION OF SOME POLISH COLORS, NAIL STAINING MAY OCCUR*** (This is why using a quality basecoat is so important). Also, you may find it helpful to set your bottle of polish upside down for about 10 minutes before use, then roll it around in your hands. ***SOME OF THE HEAVIER GLITTERS MAY SETTLE TO THE BOTTTOM OF THE BOTTLE*** This is why the upside-down trick is helpful...it will reduce the amount of fishing for glitters, especially the heavy glitters. A quality topcoat is also recommended to help deter wear to your polish and smooth out large glitters. Finally, please feel free to offer feedback to me. As an indie maker, I love to hear what my customers love, don't like, would like more/less of!!
