Hey, everyone! Hope you all are having a great week! I was sick a lot lately, but I’m doing better now. As I’m chilling in bed here writing this up, I have listened to this verbal dispute going on across the street for about half an hour now. It’s a typically quiet neighborhood, but recently some guy moved into this crappy house across the street. He and his wife must be separated because she is always driving over in her black SUV to start screaming matches with him. They’re pretty entertaining. I’m surprised the people next door haven’t called the popo. UPDATE- Somebody finally called the 5-0. They showed up just as he was about to get physical and smash her driver side window. I honestly thought they would eventually just give up because they ended up screaming at each other for over an hour. Next time I’m just calling! Also, this post is a day late because I fricking accidentally poured boiling water over one of my fingers while trying to pour my pierogies in the strainer. UGH.
Okay so here is the warning- this post is VERY PICTURE HEAVY. I’m splitting this post up into 2 parts due to the amount of polish! I’m about to show you all my adventures and haul at Polish Con 2018 in White Plains, NY. My bf was snapping shots the entire time I shopped. Also, before I get into the polish goodness, I have to thank my baby daddy for funding most of this. I was asked what I wanted for Mother’s Day and I chose cash for Polish Con! Here we go!
My nugget with a copy of the program.
When we got there, they were just letting the VIPs in. I got my bag ‘o goodies and went in. Outside they had graciously set up the water that you can see in the background. Also, they had a few selections of a free lunch! It was pretty awesome. I picked a chicken breast on a ciabatta roll with cut up fresh fruit, an apple, chips, and I think something else, but I can’t remember. It was so good.
This is how it looked when we got there.
The first table I hit up was Bee’s Knees, which you can see there in the right hand side.
Here’s moi talking to the lovely ladies at the Flirtin’ table.
Trying to find all the Different Dimensions on my list. Yes, I made a list, lol.
Ready to see my haul?
Polish Con Haul!!!
I got a total of 61 polishes, 20 of those being the ones from my VIP. Everyone is waiting on the Great Lakes Lacquer VIP, which will be shipped. There was also a Supernatural VIP mix up, so I’m waiting on that one too. The only brands that I had any product from previously was KBShimmer, Different Dimension, and I owned 1 Takko. The rest are all new to me!

Moonstone by Takko Lacquer is a greyish white base with iridescent micro flakes and an icy blue shimmer.

Rogue Lacquer was not in attendance, but sent VIP polishes, of which this is one- VIP2. It’s like a slate greyish blue with aqua shimmer and rainbow flakies.
A Deadly Banishment was Lollipop Posse Lacquer’s VIP polish. It’s like a holographic multichrome. I’m struggling to actually describe it, as it changes every which way I move it!
