Comet Vomit began as a rough sketch in a journal. I just knew I wanted to make nail polish, but I wasn't even sure exactly what that meant at the time. I spent my entire Christmas bonus on supplies in 2012 and got to work. I felt like a mad scientist mixing and shaking and trying out new things. Some things instantly seemed awesome and other things were complete failures. I was ready to throw in the towel in March, but a good friend pushed me to keep going. I got sober and with a few encouraging words from geek god Wil Wheaton himself, I knew I had to keep pushing.
In April of 2013, I really got to work. I began making new colors, taking new photos, posting giveaways and sending samples out for review. I got serious about things. I started making lip balms, eyeshadows and jewelry- expanding my line to new heights. I began searching for conventions and ended up being a vendor at my first sci-fi convention in October of 2013. It was amazing. Selling Comet Vomit to people in the real world, in person was an amazing experience.
In November of 2013, I released my new line The Good Fight collection which is all comic book themed!
2014 brought much life change and many amazing shows and markets. I moved to Nashville, TN in October 2014 to pursue love, fortune and success!
2015 was a great year for me and I'm so happy to be making a living here in Nashville!
2016 brought such great success with with the popularity of my Hamilton line! It was also so wonderful to add my Catventures in Space line and the Stargazer line!!
2017 has been so humbling and amazing. I've been working so hard it's been so good to work with people and products I love!!
*How long is TAT?*
My turn around time is currently about 3-7 days. My page says 1-2 weeks, but I do my best to fill orders within one week. I work 5-6 days a week at my day job, which is very physical and busy!
*Who makes these products?*
All products are mixed, poured, labeled and packed by only me. This is a one woman setup!
*Something isn't right with my order. What should I do?*
Let me know! I always ask that before leaving bad feedback, you just contact me. I always want my customers to be happy! I would never purposely send out the wrong items/defective items etc. Sometimes I get very busy and pack many orders at one time. Mistakes happen from time to time and I'm always happy to do anything I can to fix them!
*I want to buy something for my mom/grandma/aunt etc and I don't think they would like something with the word "vomit" on it. Can you like... not?*
I do realize that not everyone thinks that the name Comet Vomit is as cute and funny as I do. I'm more than happy to label your polishes with Music City Multicolor labels that are totally tame and not weird at all. I swear haha.
*I want to buy one of your polishes from the Hamilton/Catventures etc collection, but I really don't like the tall skinny 50ml bottles. Can you put them into a regular 50ml bottle like your other polishes?*
Of course I can! Just let me know that's what you want in the notes section.
*I'm a blogger/swatcher/IG model etc. Can I have a discount or some free stuff to promote with?*
I'm not currently sending our promotional items. You can follow my social media for sales/discounts. Once in a while I will seek out swatchers, but not super often. Again, my social media is the place to watch for this. I get many, many requests for freebies/discounts and I can only do so much.
*Can you teach me how to make nail polish/tell me who your suppliers are?*
I've been VERY generous with advice and information in the past. I honestly don't mind answering a few questions, but I've also spent YEARS working on my craft and I don't generally have time to give tons of step by step help these days. I AM writing a book on the subject, which I hope to publish sometime this year.
