Swatch & Review: Polish Con NYC 2017 Roundup Pt 1


Good Morning my polish lovin’ people!!! We are only 19 days away from what is sure to be a mind-blowing, life changing event! I don’t think I have been this excited about anything in a really long time! What am I talking about??? POLISH CON (PC) NYC 2017!!! These makers and their brands are going to shut Brooklyn down and yours truly will be all up in the mix.

In addition to the amazing polish that will be available, I am excited to spend the day hob-knobbing with the who’s who and socialites of the indie polish scene. There are going to be a lot of familiar swatchers, bloggers and nail enthusiast in the building and I plan on taking full advantage of the time to put faces with names of those I admire on IG and FB. Over the last 2 years I have cultivated relationships with the women and men I could only dream of meeting and finally…my dream is coming true.

If you are unable to attend PC, don’t worry about it! I plan to bring you LIVE coverage throughout the day on my Queen of Nails 83 Facebook page courtesy of my hubby, Jason. He will be streaming live and taking pictures so too can be part of the action. If you don’t currently “LIKE” my page, I suggest you do so to stay on top all the fun!

I think that’s enough from me as it’s time to share some of the goodies that are going to be available at PC. Various makers that will be at PC sent me their exclusives, limited editions and collabs to review. I thought it would be a good idea to showcase these polishes in multiple posts that I am calling Polish Con NYC 2017 Roundup! Today I have polishes from Polish My Life (along with their duo with Dollish Polish), le Polish and Fair Maiden.

So sit back, kick you feet up and get ready for awesomeness…part 1!!!

All I can say is, “PLEASE HAVE YOUR COINS (money) READY BECAUSE THESE MAKERS ARE NOT PLAYING WHEN IT COMES THE BEAUTIFUL POLISHES CREATED FOR THIS EVENT!” And yes, I am shouting because I want to make sure you understand me clearly. I’d hate to say, “I told you so,” or you end up with non-buyers remorse. Please stay tunes for more polishes and swatches as I have them available in part 2, and quite possibility part 3 of my Polish Con NYC 2017 Roundup.
