Sneak Peak – Mommy Loves Nail Polish PRESENTS the:
Indie Polish Blogathon!
What is this blogathon thing she’s talking about? you may be asking yourself…well, let me give you a little bit of information 🙂
I think a lot of us polish loving freaks (you know, I say that with love) know of indie polish. Some might only be aware of the well known indie brands who have had a lot of success, and started selling their polish in multiple online retailers. I think that is fantastic for them, and they deserve the success, they have worked hard.
Saying that, this blogathon will probably not include any of them. But, only because I know they are already well known.
The focus of this blogathon is going to be new brands, lesser known brands, some brands that have been around a while, but have chosen not to go big time…and really, just a few of my favorites 😉
Event will begin sometime in the first week or so of February, and last as long as it takes me to get through all of the brands (15-20 brands!! 3 – 6 polishes each!!). Each day will have different brand featured, with as much information I can include.
- Where to buy
- Where they do or do not ship to.
- Approximate pricing.
- Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest links.
- Background history on the brand and it’s creator(s)
- Maybe some discount codes here and there.
- Of course, swatches!!
Some brands I chose specifically, and some have contacted me to be included. This won’t be a review of good or bad brands or polishes. I am just trying to promote all of these fantastic brands, and hopefully give you fellow polish freaks, a few new options when purchasing polish. I may give my opinion if I have any personal stories regarding the brands – otherwise….just the facts 🙂
Oh, and – I am not being paid for anything I will be posting.
Unfortunately, a lot of other great indie brands won’t ship to Canada (for reasons I completely understand) – so I urge you to search online (etsy.com is a great place to find a large selection of indie polish brands) and work your way through the many, many results you will get – and find some of those lesser known indie brands and check out their shop. You won’t be sorry!
Onto the Sneak Peak:
Piper Polish is a brand I first discovered while obsessively searching for spetraflair over the summer. This was before I knew Etsy even existed, so I ended up finding her Spetraflair topcoat on ebay. I have since purchased more spectraflair top coat from Piper Polish on Etsy, as well as this below pictured polish. Her customer service is beyond extraordinary, and the polishes I have tried so far, are super.
I hope to have a bit of background on Piper Polish, and it’s creator Erin, when I do her full feature post within the blogathon.
