Polish Con 2016!

Hey guys! I know it's been way, way, WAY too long since I have updated this blog!  I won't bother going into all the craziness that has been going on in my absence...suffice it to say that "Life happens"...and many ups and downs were gone through...but now I am back and wanting to ease back into sharing my swatches and nail art with you again!

I was definitely out of the loop for a long time but luckily I have some amazing polish friends who informed me that Polish Con 2016 was happening in Chicago...which just so happens to be where one of those friends lives, so if I was able to attend I would have a place to stay!  So I got a plane ticket and an event ticket and off I went a few weeks ago, and it was SO TOTALLY WORTH IT!

I had never seen so many amazing polishes in one place, OR that many polish fanatics either!  It was like a dream world!  I got to meet and chat with a lot of my favorite indie polish makers like Pam, the mastermind behind the Girly Bits brand, and Missy, the creator of Different Dimension...among many others!

It was hard not to go completely broke at the event cause there was so much more I would have bought if I had the funds for it!  So here I will share a pic of what I did go home with, some of you may have already seen the picture on my instagram, where I've been posting a lot more lately.

My Polish Con goodies!  
And here is a random shot I managed to get to kind of give you an idea of just how packed the venue was!  It was definitely putting me on sensory overload, but I stuck it out cause it was worth it!

The really cool thing is that it's been announced that going forward this Polish Con will be held annually in the fall in Chicago, and also annually in the spring at varying cities... the Spring 2017 venue is going to be NYC!  Which excites me because my family lives there so, once again, if the date chosen is free on my calendar, I will have a free place to stay = more $ for polish! I hope some of you can make it to future cons because they are fantastic!

So anyhow, please keep an eye out for posts from me coming up, as I am going to work on getting content on here for you again, and please if you don't already follow me on Facebook and Instagram, please hook up with me on those as well, to make sure you have easy access to anything I am sharing!  To those of you still out there, thanks so much for reading and sticking out my hiatus!
