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: Ashley Plummer

Brand Name: 
Spellbound Nails

Where are you from? A very small town in Pennsylvania. We moved around a lot when I was younger, but somehow I ended up just down the road from where I started.

When have you started? I started mixing up polishes late 2012, but only put my polishes up for sale in early 2013.


Is there  a story behind the name of your brand? I admit it; I’m guilty of being a huge Harry Potter fan. Who doesn’t want to wave a wand and have something wonderful happen? When I opened my shop I wanted nothing more than to charm my customers, spellbound them if you will, and the name just stuck.

How many polishes/collections have you created? I have two collections at this time and six individual polishes. The Candy Coated Collection is a full collection with five polishes inspired by my favorite childhood game, Candy Land. The other collection is a green based duo I created for St. Patrick’s Day. I also have six polishes that were just released and two more collections in the works. That is 22 polishes either already released or awaiting release soon. My mind is always working with polish ideas so I hope to have many, many more!

Is there a special polish/collection? Why? I think one of the collections awaiting release is going to be closest to my heart. I have plans for five polishes in this collection and an additional two to be released later. I love every polish I create, but there are some that really touch your heart and soul, and I think that’s what this collection did for me.
Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? I was! Creating my own polish just seemed to be a natural extension to this obsession.

Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? My blog came before I started making polishes. The Candy Coated Collection’s release was actually part of my blog’s one-year anniversary.

Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? I’ve always been creative, so I definitely like the creative side. I feel a bit like a mad scientist at times as I mix in glitter and pigment just to see what comes of it. I also really love seeing an idea I have in my head come together perfectly in a bottle. The sense of accomplishment I get is definitely a rush.

Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? I haven’t had anything happen with a client yet, but I was checking out at a local shop and got to talking with the cashier. She had some really pretty nail art and after complimenting her on it we got to talking about how she does it herself. I mentioned that I do my own as well and that I even started making my own nail polish. She looked at me like I was insane, like I couldn’t possible make my own nail polish, and I was just a crazy person who simply thought I could!

Is there anything you'd Like to share: Thank you so much, Bárbara, for letting me be part of this project. I love what I do, and I hope others can come to be just as excited with every new polish created as I am.
