Aussie Indie Con 2017

Last saturday was the very first Aussie Indie Con here in Sydney. This is something that as soon as it was announced I have been peeing myself with excitement. As I have mentioned before I have a nasty chronic illness that normally keeps me at home, but I was determined to go no matter what! Seeing as it was such an exciting day I didn't take many photos, but I thought I would share with you the small amount that I did.  

It was held at one of the rooms in the National Maritime Museum - right by the water at Darling Harbour. Super pretty place to be! And with the added bonus that Vivid was still on (although I had gone home by the time the lights were on so no photos, but I'm sure it was pretty!).  

There were a bunch of classes and demonstrations throughout the day. I was lucky enough to get myself into the watermarbling class with Cathy from More Nail Polish. I have been reading her blog ever since I first got into nail polish many many years ago and am a big fan, so it was so exciting to be able to meet her and learn from her. We got to use some of the Pastel Pet Names range from Pretty Serious. I still have a long way to go before I master this, but I did learn a few good tips and tricks to help me. I just have a lot of practice so I can become a watermarbling witch.

This is my token haul picture - 56 polishes in total, including the ones that came in the VIP bag. I also get my sticky fingers on one of the Pretty Serious tshirts which I was delighted are super soft and nice and long (us busty girls need that!!!). There were quite a few exclusive polishes that were only available on the day, but I think my favourite thing were ll the lucky dips that some brands had that were filled with different sample shades. I got some bottled magic! Now I just need to buy another helmer to fit them all and grow a few extra fingers to wear them. 

And last of all here is a picture of everything that came in the VIP bag. I was so amazed at how good it was! A tonne of exclusive polishes (I will start swatching them on IG soon - be sure to follow me @onemorecoat), an adorable pen, shot glass for all this acetone and watermarbling needs (Or just drinking), a nail file, melts, bath bomb, stamper, holo sticker, and a bunch of discount  vouchers to use on the day. This was seriously better than Christmas!

So this was seriously one of the best days of my life. I just hope my health gets better enough to get more involved in the future - hopefully this will happen again next year! If you weren't able to make it, I highly suggest checking out all the indie brands who were there as many are selling the exclusive polsihes online for a short time and you don't want to miss out!
