I have wanted to start a beauty swapping forum for a long time, but I wasn't sure if I had the time or if enough people would be interested in joining yet another forum. I thought that perhaps because it was limited to swapping on, perhaps it wouldn't make anyone choose between it and more popular communities such as MakeupTalk and Beautylish.
After spending the last few days stalking Zoya's Facebook page and meeting some absolutely fabulous polish peeps, I was inspired to finish the forum I'd been working on and get it up and running. Introducing, Trading Pretty! It's not aesthetically where I want it to be, but that will come with time. I want it to look just right in the end ;) For now, the look is basic, but it still provides polish-obsessed nuts (and I say that with the utmost respect and love, being a fellow crazy myself) a fun, positive place to swap nail polish!
Though the forum is dedicated completely to nail polish, I may expand to other beauty products in the future if enough makeup lovers show interest in other things. My vision, however, is to always keep it a swapping forum. I am not opposed to the idea of creating one area where people can post fun nail looks for kicks or even swatches of polishes for reference, but I think there are enough beauty communities that encompass other social aspects already.
So, there you have it! I've limited posting on the forum to members-only to avoid SPAMMERS from finding their ways in, but while technically the forum is linked to my blog, you do not have to be a member of my blog to be a member of the polish swapping forum! Follow both, follow one, follow none--the choice is yours ;) If you want to check out the new polish swapping forum you can see it HERE.
I look forward to seeing how things go and hopefully with your support and plenty of time and effort on my part, we can make my polish forum an exciting place for you polish peeps to be!
Oh! And this forum is open to international polish peeps as well! The more the merrier in my opinion ;) I've done some research on shipping nail polish from the US to other countries, so definitely read my post on international shipping under the international polish swatch.
What do you think? I'm so excited!
