Also, if you decide to order a full set of the Lov-a-Bully collection, in addition to receiving the current secret shade, 20% of the purchase will be donated to the Atlanta Bully Rescue.


On a personal note, the very first dog I grew up with was a massive red nose pit named Zeus.
He was badly abused as a puppy.  The mental stress of it caused him to break out into hives during thunderstorms, while he hid under tables.  But he was such a joy for our family, and an all around wonderful dog.


Here is Zeus doing his classic "wally gator" pose, begging for a belly rub.

  10. Odd that it's two weeks after the launch of this collection: http://nailblog.net/pibble-polish/ with the exact same "buy the whole collection & receive a free mystery polish" promotion.

    1. I've been doing this promotion since the launch of Elixir Lacquers last year. :)
      Didn't they only just launch their polish line within the past week or so??

    2. Dear annonymous one, If what you're insinuating is that Elixir Lacquers copied that post you provided a link to, I'd like to say you're wrong.

      Ever since the Launch of Elixir Lacquers, Nicole offers a free special polish to anyone who buys a whole collection.
      please don't start drama by making unnecessary insinuations.

      These are stunning Nicole. :-)

    3. Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for saying that!!! I really appreciate the support!!! And thank you also for such a sweet compliment!!! <3

    4. Actually Nicole came up with this idea when I asked her to participate in Atlanta Bully Rescue's Annual Fundraiser back in June. A week or so after the fundraiser she asked on a status for people to submit what colors they thought would symbolize their beloved pits. So to imply that she stole the idea is preposterous.

  16. Amazing I am in complete love with the concept of this collection & the passion that went into it i am not yet a follower but soon will be once i am done commenting. you can truly tell the amazing amount of passion was put into the little details so the polishes would look like the dogs. I hate how almost every other year theres a new "DANGEROUS" dog, such as doberman, rotties, boxers & pitbulls, when all it truly is, is the human trainer. :(

    I am a Nail polish fanatic & an animal lover so this is right up my alley. Love the swatches !

  17. I love glitter nail polishes. It seems they can make more than 100 styles with different base color! love it :)

  18. Very beautiful collection and beautiful idea of supporting these poor dogs.

  21. What an amazing concept! So awesome of you to do this! I love my rescue babies with all my heart and advocate for pitbull rescue! This is so awesome!!! <3

  22. Thank you all for your amazing words!! I'm so happy to see such support for these amazing dogs!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Seriously Nicole, these are SO cool! The concept is awesome, AND the polish is beautiful! I'm also really impressed how you were able to make the polishes all really mesh perfectly with the dog it was inspired by, and at the same time make them all wearable and desirable shades beyond just "it's cool because it's helping a rescue".

    I'm pretty sure if someone had asked me to put together a collection "inspired" by all these cuties there would be... a brown creme... a black creme... a brown-red creme... =D But... that would be exactly why I don't make polishes, I just buy them from people more creative them myself, like you! ; )

    And seriously, how CUTE are all those pups!! How much for a bottle of polish that comes with a doggie? =) [Seriously though, if I lived in Atlanta... Well, I don't have the work schedule to be able to give a dog what it deserves, but I will be a dog owner someday, and I'll definitely be looking up a rescue in my area when that time comes]
