Where on earth did September go? At work, I'm already into Halloween mode and moving towards the holidays and on my desk at home, I have winter lines from several polish companies filling my available room. I always feel busy but I think fall and winter are my absolutely busiest times and I'm feeling the rush. What I'm also feeling is the fact that I'm going to Chicago tomorrow morning!
The Polish Convention [Facebook Event | Facebook Group | Twitter | Instagram] is a joint effort from Ever After Polish and Great Lakes Lacquer to bring Indies together in Chicago for one great night of polish fun, shopping, and tutorials. All the brands attending are indies - most well established but one lucky maker - NeVerMind Polish will be debuting at the convention.
The Polished Pathology has a wickedly amazing, extremely detailed list of each indie, and swatches of their limited edition and event exclusive polishes here.
The tutorial tables are really interested and I think are going to be really neat. Think mini-workshops, but you didn't have to pay extra. The sign ups for the tables happened earlier in the month and while all tables are currently full, I hope you can float around and watch from a distance. There's also talk about showing via projector in the ballroom and/or Facebook Live.
AND I am proud to announce that I will be at the Convention, covering for Nail It Magazine! I will be submitting a digital article after the event as well as a live Instagram Takeover during the event. I do believe it will be on IG only, not the IG Story, so I hope to post more to my IG Story and of course, I'll be posting to my Instagram as well. Check #PolishCon and #PolishCon2016 for all photos from the different makers, bloggers, and other attendees.
If you're heading out to PolishCon, please say hi. I love meeting new people or seeing old friends a second time. It's going to be a quick trip - less than 24 hours in Chicago, but I'm excited and looking forward to seeing the Inaugural PolishCon!
