Ruby White Tips Promotional Code 
Will be Available for 3 days
Starts today, December 6th and is valid until December 9th. 



Your Name:  Laura Toff
Brand Name:  Ruby White Tips
Where are you from?  Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA
When have you started?  November 2012

Is there  a story behind the name of your brand? I did nails strait out of High School for a little bit. The problem was I have a shaking problem. When I would have the customer sit down, I'd hold their hand, while checking out the nails I'll be working on for the day. They would feel me actually shaking in their hands and think I was just nervous. Months would go by with client after client still wondering, why in the heck am I still so nervous. I had to be honest, I shake for absolutely NO reason. Still do to this day. Blood test after blood test, nothing is wrong with me.....I'm the family joke, and I laugh about it too.

How many polishes/collections have you created? I have 1 collection as of right now. The Ski Resort Collection. I'm a skier, it had to be done. No one's ever tried to name a polish after a ski resort before have they? LOL. The next collection coming out will be the Bat World Sanctuary Collection. 50% of all proceeds for the collection will go to them. Bats are clean and gentle and intelligent. As a vital part of the ecosystem, they enhance our lives in so many ways. To find out more go to BatWorld.org

Is there a special polish/collection? Why? PanCan Purple for my Mom, whom I miss every single day. I lost her from Pancreatic Cancer on Oct 1, 2008. She had a hard fight. This cancer is one of the worst out there. With only a 5% survival rate for 5 years. There needs to be so much more for the funding of the cure! 50% of the proceeds of this color goes to Dr. Yeo at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia in my mom's name, Eileen Toff.

Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? YES! But, I never had the time to make it before now. As a single parent of 2 kids aged 8 and 11, It's few and far between for 'my time'.

Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? Yes I have a blog, that I don't use....at all. I just don't have it in me. By the time I figure out how to even post a post, I've started to doubt myself. I'll leave the blogs to those who write better than I do....Like you!

Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? The art that's involved. As a lover of all things artistic, I can't help but go into my own world while making a color. And more times than none I have changed my mind on it and it totally comes out opposite of what I thought to do in the first place.
Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? Just recently I gave my friend Jami a polish with no name. She quickly named it Carolina Blue, as a Basketball fan that made sense to her...I get a picture of these little tiny feet the next day. As I look closer, I noticed those little toes had Carolina Blue all over them! Her 3 year old daughter Jordyn found the polish and took it upon herself to try it.

Is there anything you'd Like to share: I'd like to add that I'm not a full glitter polish seller. You'll find lots of glittery, shimmery, holo's and color changing polishes on Ruby White Tips....That's what I'll focus on, classy but sassy!
