Thank you all so, so much for your kind thoughts and words. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support, your patience, and your general awesomeness.

AND SO. The saga continues. I've got three new colors and a brand-new web store. WOO. My very own stand-alone shop. So legit! 

"STOP BLATHERING AND TELL US ABOUT THE NEW COLORS." Okay! The new colors are pretty rad, and they are inspired by Lord of the Rings. Hooray! When deciding what things/places/concepts to interpret into suitable polish colors, of course first thoughts are the One Ring itself, and Sauron's arguably most bad-ass manifestation. And since I love all things green almost as much as I love all things teal (almost), I figured Lothlorien would round out the trio nicely.

Thus, we have The Ring, The Eye, and The Dwarf Breathes So Loud We Could Have Shot Him In The Dark (abbv to TDBSLWCHSHITD, for obvious reasons, but you're free to call it Haldir's Best Line, if you like). An antique gold, a fiery orange-red, and a soft leaf green - and The Eye even has a red shimmery eye on top of the bottle cap, because /of course it does/. PICS ATTACHED. 

Now that the important stuff is out of the way - about the new shop. It's at, obvs, and it'll be pretty much the same setup as before. Add to cart, check out with Paypal (no direct credit card checkout yet, but possibly in future?). Prices are the same, shipping is probably about the same, or slightly less? Setting up the shipping was extremely confusing and frustrating, and with the tools/options at hand I couldn't figure an optimal way to do it that didn't result in large orders being charged what I thought was a needlessly high shipping cost, so instead I just made a permanent "coupon" (listed at the top of the page!) for free shipping on US orders over $100. So yay for that! Oh, and to facilitate accurate inventory/stock management, I'm not selling "trio" sets together anymore -- BUT, you can shop by "category" theme, so it'll be easy to grab just the Doctor Whos, or just the Star Trek, etc, if that's your jam.

Right now I've got around 700 bottles ready to go. I'm probably going to launch the shop tomorrow (OMGGGG), after I do some more poking and prodding at the site to make sure I do indeed have it set up properly and have not failed utterly at configuring a pre-fab template FFS, oh god what if it's all wrong and I broke it and it charges everyone a thousand dollars for shipping [heart attack]? No, seriously, it seems to be a-ok and good to go. And smartasses, don't write to tell me my leftnav headline font is gross and does not match because duuuude, I so totally know, UGH, there's no way to change it. Whatever, I'll probably do a graphic overhaul eventually, when I figure out what the hell I'm doing. This whole process has been further clusterfucked due to all the shit going down, and a brief internet outage, and the fact that I'm just now well after about five weeks of head cold then bronchitis then sore throat. 

So there you have it. (Sings along with The Strokes : "You talk way too muuuuuuuch, you taaaalk wayyy toooo muuuh-huuuuuch.") Look for fresh Nerds tomorrow, and don't panic if there's a sellout, because in just a couple days I'll be making MORE.
