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: Casey Richardson
Brand Name: Glittering Elements
Where are you from? Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
When have you started? March 2013
Is there  a story behind the name of your brand? It took me ages to find a name I liked enough to make my own, my Friend Madonna and I
had a fun time trying out different names, some were so silly and others had potential but nothing that really got me.. Long story short, Glittering Elements came to me while I was sitting in my lounge watching TV.. It was really out of the blue, so I took it as a sign and ran with it! Fits perfectly :)
How many polishes/collections have you created? I currently have 2 collections, Final Fantasy which is a 12 piece set and Fairy Land which is a
4 piece set, there are at least 13 stand alone polishes.. one limited edition - Snowflake Kiss, and a few are due to be discontinued. Making room for some new exciting shades!
Is there a special polish/collection? Why? Shine on, Madonna. Its in honor of a friend that is battling cancer.. $3 from each bottle goes to cancer research. It's not a pink polish, but a blue/sea green with different glitters, her favorite colour is blue so it was a given :)
Do you have a best seller? Shine on, Madonna and the Lightning/Odin holo set are running equal first! Everyone loves a pretty holo :)
Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? YES!! I'm a mad polish addict, I have a 4 drawer full and then the rest live all over the house, its an unorganized mess at the moment lol planning a bit of a de-stash soon.
Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? No, no blog, just a Facebook page.


Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? I love to create, im constantly full of ideas. When I think of something, its like a mad rush to get it made or at least have it written down. Having the ability to make it (its not always easy) its an amazing feeling when you swatch a winner and everyone else loves it too, you know you did it right :D
Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? Nothing out of the ordinary, I can say ive met some amazing people! even before I started making polish.. The bloggers that have reviewed my line are just so lovely! I believe that true friendships are formed through these polish related groups, even in a virtual world <3
Is there anything you'd Like to share: Just a THANK YOU to everyone that has supported me from the start, I would have given up long ago if I didn't have the encouragement and love from them all.. Im humbled and grateful to be doing what I love and I hope to make others happy with my polish too <3
Do you ship international? Yes, I do!
