For those who don't know what I am talking about (Follow me through Facebook to know a lot more!) I am making an Indie Guide A-Z! This will be a huge project and a enormous pleasure to do! So .. what am I going to do? Everyday, I'm going to show you a different brand of Indie Nail Polishes (and some of their major stockists too!! )
* * *



Your Name: Jessica Bezzant

Brand Name: Glitter Guilty

Where are you from? Utah, USA
When have you started? January 2013

Is there a story behind the name of your brand? I love love crime and detective novels and movies, which inspired Glitter "guilty", as well as the logo. To most people, it probably just looks like a polish brush painting the word guilty. But to me, it looks a little more criminal. :)

How many polishes/collections have you created? I have over 30 in my shop now, but I've created more than 150 bottles.

Is there a special polish/collection? I created a "Short Skirt, Long Jacket" collection based on the song by Cake. Why? I've always loved the song, and the woman he describes. She sounds like a strong, powerful, beautiful woman who knows what she wants. I want to be that woman. Except for the getting up early part. :)

I also like to create polishes based on my love for crime/detective books and movies. Bonnie and Clyde, Discombobulate, Double Agent, and Espionage are part of that crime collection. I'm working on adding more.

Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? Yes, but only on my toes. When I was younger, I used to play the harp, so I needed to always keep my nails super short and didn't ever paint them. Once I stopped playing, I started painting them again. And now that I have two young children, and another business to run, a quick mani is a perfect "time out" just for me. It helps me feel pretty and put together, and the flash of color is a perfect energy boost!

Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? No, but I have one that I am starting along with my new website: www.glitterguilty.com

Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? The color of it all. I've always loved color. I'm a maternity clothing designer as my "main" job, and I've always loved picking the perfect colors. Nail polish takes it a step further with combining colors, materials and textures. 


Is there anything you'd Like to share: I'm also focusing on a new subscription box- Glitter Guilty Pleasures Box. It includes a "Monthly Me", a full size polish sent based on the subscriber's preferences, and a "Monthly Mini", a mini size polish sent to all subscribers. It will also include a piece or two of artisan chocolate, and in summer months, another one of my guilty pleasures. 


In effort to support women and small businesses, I'm donating a portion of each subscription to Grameen Foundation.
