About GeekOutofWater

On Etsy since 2017

I am a lover of handwritten notes and personalized packages!

When I joined Color Street in 2020, I initially just wanted the nail strip discount for myself. I love the product so much, though, that my enthusiasm to share it quickly became a side gig. I love the packaging and customer service aspects of retail business, and after a few months as a Stylist, I decided that I wanted to focus on those things for my business. That led me to create new envelopes to package my customers' orders for various holidays and seasons, which led me to decide to share them with you! You can find me at or on YouTube at Geek Out of Water.

A previous incarnation of this shop focused on handmade designs for rideshare drivers, as I had a brief stint as a driver for Uber and Lyft. I love making things, especially when I can make things to support our best work!

Here's to success and prosperity in whatever you do, and happy nails to my fellow nail slingers out there!

Frequently asked questions
What should I do if I provided the wrong shipping address?

If you provided the wrong address and the item has not yet shipped, please contact me immediately so that I can cancel the order and you can place it again with the correct address.

If the item has already shipped, I recommend you contact the USPS and request a Hold for Pickup or Package Intercept. There is nothing I can do to change the address once the package has shipped.

If the package has already been delivered, the only option is to see if the recipient decides to return the package to me. These returns take 1-3 weeks to come back, but people don't usually return them. If the package is returned to me, I will refund the cost of the original sign minus shipping to your new sign order. I cannot offer a refund without a new order.
