Polish Con Macro Round Up!

Hey everyone! Look! It’s my first real blog post!! This has been a long time in the works since I’ve been busy with school and there’s so much to talk about with these beautiful polishes. Below I’ve compiled macro bottle shots of all the polishes I bought during Polish Con 2016.

It was held in Chicago, which is where I live, so there was no way I could pass up this opportunity. Every fall Polish Con will be held in Chicago, IL and then in the spring it will be held in a different city every year. This coming spring it will be held in New York City! You can check out the Facebook page to see all the details and stay up to date on future events.
