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: Shannon and Josh

Brand Name: Pahlish


Where are you from? We currently live in NE Arkansas

When have you started? We started our Etsy shop in March of 2012, but we'd been making our own polish for about 6-8 months before that

Is there a story behind the name of your brand? It's a play on my last name

How many polishes/collections have you created? We've done 4 major collections, and 15-20 standalone shades




Is there a special polish/collection? Why? My very favorite is probably our recent 12 Days of Christmas collection because it's so large and has so many different types of colors in it. I felt like we really had to flex our creative muscles on that one to do out-of-the-ordinary Christmas colors. But, the Portal collection is probably the closest to my heart, I got really into the story while I was playing both games and wanted to share that with our fan base.

Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? Ohhhh, yes. Josh was always knocking over bottles of polish on our desk and complaining about how much I had. He sings a very different tune now that nail polish pays the rent!

Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after? Nope, I am way too busy and disorganized to keep up with a blog! I don't know how bloggers do it, to be honest.

Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? I love it when our customers give me feedback about the subject matter. It is so amazing to me when someone messages me and says that they love Portal or the song lyrics that we use for inspiration. I think it's that connection that it allows us to make with the consumer, it's really cool to me.

Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? My favorite moment while working with Pahlish was actually a glitter mishap we had. I had ordered some plastic vials of glitter and couldn't get them open. I asked Josh to help and when he finally pried it open the lid shot off and glitter went everywhere. He ended up covered in glitter, his hair was full of it. He just handed the vial back to me and didn't say a word.
