About

I’m Kelly, the inventor of the No Spill Nail Polish Holder. Starting from the time I was just a little girl I loved painting my nails. Whether I was sitting on the couch watching TV, lying in bed, or sitting at the desk in my bedroom, I would paint my nails often. The one constant challenge I would face was the worry from my mother who redundantly used the phrase: “Kelly, please do not spill nail polish on the carpet or expensive furniture”.

After over three years of patent research (design patent approved), interviews with US companies to produce a mold, designing, building, and testing various prototypes, I knew I had a product I was proud to show the world. This product is developed to fit every nail polish bottle out there, and trust me there are many! The size of the base offers stability to prevent spills that leave those ugly permanent stains.

I found a small local injection molding company to produce the durable plastic holder in three colors: clear, translucent purple, and translucent pink.

Throughout 2018 my goals are to have a steady schedule of production, hire a website designer and developer, apply for a utility patent, reach out to popular nail polish companies to promote my product and negotiate a contract to package the holder with a popular brand online and in retail stores, and discover and hire a company or individual to seek guidance on marketing techniques. 

Risks and challenges

It would be a great disappointment for such a practical invention to be poorly executed and fail due to lack of research, lack of discipline, and inadequate problem solving skills.

Manufacturing: Having the financial means to produce a mold that can create 10 holders per shot versus 1 or 2 holders per shot reduce the production price per unit to increase my profit margin.

PRODUCT COLOR ADJUSTMENT: Multiple prototypes may be required to find the exact shade of pink and purple I am trying to yield.

FULFILLMENT: My supplier may miss a deadline dealing with machine issues, miscalculations on material purchase orders, and/or little to no open production time. Working with a local supplier allows for efficient face time with the sales and production teams to aleviate issues and directly express concerns when they arise.

Any pledge amount helps bring me closer to experiencing my dream and is IMMENSELY appreciated!
