Today I received a VERY special piece of Nail Mail! My friend Aleta from The Nail Junkie has started her very own polish line! This is so exciting for Aleta because she has put a lot of thought and effort into making her own polishes. Its something she has wanted to do for some time now. With many of us encouraging her to finally take the leap, she has announced her first collection. Aleta was kind enough to send me one of her first sets to review. For now, I will tease you with the haul, but stay tuned for swatches!!
As expected, Aleta blew me away with presentation! I am very impressed with the packaging! I couldn't wait to take pictures of it all to show you! Aleta is choosing to do things a little bit differently than other indie brands. Packaging and overall appearance of the items is very important to her. She wants her polish line to be more than just polish in a bottle. She is going the extra mile to make her products special.
This is what I received, right out of the box! YELLOW (love it!) tissue paper tied with a ribbon, a card and a daisy!
Inside, the items were bubble wrapped but I failed to photograph that part! Who wants to see bubble wrap anyways?! NOT I LOL!
Here are the items out of the bubble wrap. Some of the items are inside of Ziploc bags which is great just in case something would leak or break during transit!
A CLOSER LOOK at the polishes in their bags!! She used Easter basket grass for decoration and extra padding!! What a great idea!! I LOVE IT!!
Here they are out of the bags! If you haven't heard, Aleta's polishes are not only in different bottles than we are used to seeing, but they are MATTE FINISH!! OMG! There are 3 matte polishes, a glitter topper, and a matte topcoat (to help protect the polish and maintain the original finish). The bottles have adorable jewels on top of the lids too!
|I LOVE the labels too!|
|Matte Finish Violet Polish, Matte Finish Daffodil Polish|
|Matte Finish Rose Polish, Grass Green Glitter Topper|
Companions to this collection are a homemade hand scrub, lilac scented oil spray, glitter removal wipes, and rose scented wax melts. These are very special items meant to compliment her line. This is so cool, a brilliant idea that will definitely make her collection stand out!
ANOTHER fantastic idea Aleta had was to add a Certificate of Authenticity to each set. The purchaser will receive one with their order. It will have their name printed as well as their set number. HOW COOL IS THAT?! I think this is a very nice touch, it makes the purchaser feel special! The card also explains the contents of the set as well as includes ingredients and instructions.
I have set #3! :-)
Another look at the set all together!
As you can tell, I am very impressed! I cannot wait to try everything! I think Aleta did a really great job with this, I am so excited for her. I hope you like it too!
