A Whole New World - Indie Polish

When most people think about buying new nail polish they think of brands like China Glaze, Opi, Sally Hansen, essie, or Zoya; just to name a few.

It donned on me while I was painting my nails for my last blog for nail friday.  Why am I obsessed with these big corporate name brand polishes?  Honestly I cannot tell you why, I started purchasing them cause of reviews that I had read or friends had recommended a certain brand for me to try out.  So I went with the flow and did what so many people do and bought the big name brands, spending up to $15 for a bottle of nail polish.  

Now enter the world of Indie polishes.  There are an uncountable number of hard working people out there that are try to make a living producing and selling nail polish.  Just check out Etsy and do a search for nail polish and you will see just how many people there are on just this one site.  

I started doing my research on the internet and reading blog reviews on various Indie sellers and decided to give a few of them a try.  I have made my purchases and will be posting reviews of this polishes as soon as my orders arrive.  You can find pretty much any color you would ever want, not to mention their unique creativity that they use to come up with super cute Holo, Jelly, and even super sparkly glitter topcoats.  

  • My first Indie purchase will be coming from ILoveNP , I have chose Her Highness and All Gold Everything  It was very hard to choose which polishes I wanted to try out because they all look so amazing.

Look for these reviews to come in the next few weeks. Check out their stores, let me know if there is a polish that catches your eye that you would like me to review.  All of my reviews are unbiased as I am making all the purchases myself so I am receiving no compensation from any of these companies.  Do you have a favorite Indie seller that you think I need to check out, leave me a comment.

Welcome to 2013 where my New Years resolution is a no buy on big name corporate polish brands!  Lets support the little glas/guys that pour their heart and soul into creating these nail polish masterpieces.
