Polish Con Chicago - VIP Grab Bag & Haul

Helloo! As promised, today I have my haul for Polish Con Chicago to show you. I had planned on taking pictures at the convention, but it was so busy and time got away from me (I was a little bit excited!). In short, it was amazing. All of the makers were absolutely lovely and it was so nice to meet everyone. The day was full of competitions, tutorials, food, and lots and lots of polish. Read on for a closer look at everything I brought home!

I was lucky enough to get myself a VIP ticket. This included a swag bag full of polishes, nail care extras, discount codes, scratch cards (to win discounts, samples, or even full size polishes), and even some sweets. Here are the contents of my bag:

What do you think? Some people I've shown my haul to think I've gone a bit overboard, but some think I've been quite reserved. I was torn between trying to keep it reasonable and going crazy - I did travel all the way there after all! I am going to try and swatch everything over the next few months. Let me know if there are any specific ones you'd like to see!

Hope to see you in the next post!

  5. It was funny to see all of the VIP members sitting in the floor going through their VIP bags like children on Christmas morning. It was very easy to go overboard and it was very stimulating. The Glisten and Glow and cupcake Polish lines were crazy but so worth it in the end. By the way, I haven't had bare nails since we got home and I'm on my 4th color already. LoL
