The collection was well received on line, and I sold out of all the bottles I had pre-poured, and had to put a hold on shipping the new pours out so I would have some to take with me to the Gala. So, off I went to shoppers with my display, and promotional material and my polishes, simply thankful for the opportunity to display them, let alone sell them.
If you are not familiar with the Look Good Feel Better galas, they are designed to raise money for breast cancer awareness, and the idea of Look Good, Feel Better is, that if women with breast cancer can be helped to look good, they will feel better, and therefore brighten their spirits both mentally and physically and in turn be better armed to face the disease and fight it. Shoppers brings in makeup artists and skin care specialists and hair stylists offering makeovers and consultations by appointment. There are giveaways, and raffles and a percentage of certain sales goes to Breast Cancer research. I was honored to be invited to take part.
Here is what my display looked like.
A HUGE thank you goes out to Angela Labate at Thumbnails and Polish for designing my logo for me. I love it, and I couldn't have done it with out you!! ♥
I had a complete set of testers out for people to try, along with cotton and remover, and also a few bottles and swatches from the next collection. My daughter was also there helping me, and she was offering free nail art stamping.
I pre-packed a few bags with the entire collection in it, at a discount. Isn't the sticker that Angela designed for me, just the cutest?
This is my daughter Mackenzie, who was there to assist me, and offer free nail stamping.
Soon my oldest daughter Jen showed up to see how things were going, and they both proudly showed off the swatch sticks.
And here I am.
Some of the girls doing makeup, and Justin Bieber sporting a pink wig and serving up refreshments, in support of the cause.
He was really quiet that day.
A huge thank you to Jen, the cosmetics department manager, for inviting me!!

All packed up and ready to go home, at the end of a successful launch of Girly Bits.
I was very pleased with the response, and I enjoyed talking with everyone that day. I have a bag full of ballots for a draw to win the next collection, and people seemed genuinely interested in my little local business. I am pleased to be able to offer hand made items, that are created out of a true love of color and texture, and because of you, it is all worth while.
Till next time-Happy polishing and don't forget to moisturize!!
Thanks for looking!!
