Okay, so doing the June is Julep Month mani challenge was … well… challenging. But it was also a lot of fun and I loved digging into my untrieds. I found a lot that I really loved. I'm taking a mani challenge break in July because my nails need a bit of R&R… but I wanted to come up with a new mani challenge… so for August, I'm going to do an August is Indie Month challenge! I have SO many indie polishes and they are amazing -- so this is a great way to promo all the hard work & love that our indie polish makers put into their creations. :)
I've created a preliminary chart that I will go by. The finals details will be posted August 1, 2014. I think there are a few other bloggers that would like to join me. The rules for this one will be a bit looser/less restrictive just because indies are less common in the average polish household -- and since some of them require non-indie brand products to do the mani (like topcoats/basecoats, "undies", etc). Also, not having these particular brands doesn't mean you can't do the challenge -- just sub in what you DO have! Or if you have 3 kinds of one brand, sub those in for the ones you don't. It's about giving indies some love, not about rigid rules! I just based this preliminary chart on a quick glance at my stash. I am leaning towards untrieds only but I'm going to used some previously tried also. :)
Here's the preliminary chart:
Like I said, the chart I made is preliminary and not necessarily the final one I will go by once August hits. I'm super excited and can't wait to showcase these brands!
