Hello everyone! I was sent this neon nail powder from http://www.bornprettystore.com to try out for you!
Hello my fellow nail polish addicts!!! Today I have some exciting news, in particular for us Canadians (or my American readers near the US / Can border), and especially for us Ontarians!!!
Oh so many times I get asked who makes those beautiful polishes I use in my manis. And more importantly, “where can I get them??” Now just imagine you could not only oogle all these lovelies in one place, but you could talk to the makers behind these amazing polishes? And even better, BUY SOME FOR YOURSELF??? You’d probably say something like “Where Jenny? Where is this fantastical place?”
Indie Expo Canada of course!
There will be workshops and tutorial tables, and you will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with industry YouTubers, Bloggers, and of course the makers themselves!
Tickets start at $24.07 (all fees and taxes included) and are available at eventbrite.ca. This will give you access to a TON (and I mean TON!) of Indie vendors (from all over the world!) Not just nail polish either. There will be cosmetics, skin care, hair care, all kinds of amazing brands showcasing their products!!!
So come on over and check it out….I will be there and I’d love to meet and hang with my fellow nail addicts!
WOOHOO! I’m all official and stuff! I will be there covering the event and I think it’s going to be an amazing experience for us all!!!!
Stay in the loop by connecting with Indie Expo Canada on their social media:
And if you can’t make it, stay tuned because I will have lots of info and reviews happening, as well as coverage during the June 4th portion of the event! I do hope to see you next weekend though!!!! I’m super friendly I promise!
Until next time, happy painting!
Hey all!!!! Today I have swatches of 4 beautiful polishes from new-to-me brand Madam Glam. I’ve known of Madam Glam for a good long while (they are a NYC-based brand that is 5-free, vegan, and cruelty-free), but have not had the opportunity to try them for myself. Check out the swatches and my thoughts after the jump!
All of my swatches were stamped over Sinful Colours Black on Black and OPI Alpine Snow, and were topped with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. I used Bornprettystore Plate BPL-024 and a clear silicone stamper.
Beautifully opaque pastel pink:
A true pastel blue, reminiscent of one of my favourite flowers:
A bright minty green pastel – I suddenly really want ice cream…
An ultra pale blue-lavender:
And the other four in the collection are:
Lemon (pastel yellow)
Mango (pastel orange)
Apple (pastel green)
As you can see, these pastels are vibrant over white yet SUPER opaque over black, which is just so hard to do!! These polishes stamped like an absolute dream, I didn’t have to fiddle around with different stampers or plates, nor did I have to adjust my stamping and scraping techniques at all. And the best part is they are 5-free, and hand-poured with love!!
The Spring 2017 Pastels are available for pre-order May 5th – May 12th, with a 2 week turnaround time prior to shipment.
Shipping to both Canada and the US:
Full size: $9 USD / 15 ml bottle
$70 USD for the full 8-piece set
Mini: $5 USD / 7 ml bottle
Make sure to follow Nadia on her social media platforms for news, release info, and swatches!

Until next time – Happy Painting!!!
Disclosure – these polishes were provided to me free-of-charge for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
