About Tynie Cosmetics & Apparel
Tynie Cosmetics & Apparel, formerly Spark + Thread, has been designing and selling novelty tees and accessories since 2015. In 2019, we’ve expanded our online store to include our long-time obsession for nail polish. We believe everyone should be able to wear their personality in a comfy tee with a shiny manicure.
Who We Are:
Spark + Thread (now Tynie Cosmetics & Apparel) was founded by me, Lindsey Tyner, in 2015. Having been a web & graphic designer for over a decade, I found myself constantly working on designs for other people while my personal creativity started to wain. I began creating T-Shirt designs on Etsy as a way of expressing myself. My personality definitely started to shine through and I wanted to give others the same opportunity to “wear their personality”.
In 2019, I expanded my nail polish obsession by beginning to make my own. I quickly realized that nail polish would make a great addition to our store — especially since I was creating so much of it! I knew I wanted to share my unique take on nail polish colors with the world while also trying to find a way to reduce the waste of old polishes and chemicals involved in the in the typical manicure.
As our store begins to grow, I expect to add many more polishes and take on new apparel designers and production partners. Stay tuned as we continue on our journey!
