Welcome to the 8th issue of the Australian Indie Polish Appreciation Society Newlsetter!
There are only a few short weeks until Christmas, and some store have announced their seasonal closures. We also have a few brands who have sales on this week, and of course we have some lovely photos from our weekly challenge theme.
WHO IS AIPAS
The Australian Indie Polish Appreciation Society was created with a simple goal, to help promote and share the love of Aussie Indie polish brands.
You can join in on the fun and keep track of release and sale info and giveaways by joining the AIPAS Facebook Group. If joining a community isn't your style, follow this blog by GFC or Bloglovin for the highlights.
The AIPAS Mod team comprises of Cassie Goodwin (The Reluctant Femme), Nicole Wearmouth, Relle Kins (Lazy Lacquerista) and Teneil Masters (Shades of Phoenix). You can email the mod team at aussieindiemods @ gmail.com or send us a private FB message.
