AIPAS NEWSLETTER - 22 February 2014

16th Edition

Welcome to the Australian Indie Polish Appreciation Society newsletter for this week.  I hope you all have your orders in for some awesome green polish, because St Patrick's Day is coming up next month!

Quickie Group Update


We now have an AIPAS group pinterest board.  If you are interested in joining in and pinning your Aussie Indie swatches to the board, you will need to follow it, and drop your user name in the group post!  

Click for the AIPAS Pinterest Board and for the Group Post (remember you will need to be a member of the group first to get at the post!)

Other Indie Stores

We are now allowing stores that have nail-polish related items, such as nailpolish jewellery or hand/nail products such as cuticle balm, to join in on promoting those related items in the Group.  If you think your store might be relevant, please message one of the mods.


This week's theme in the group was to use polish inspired by a TV Show or Movie.  Such awesome range of polishes used, your eyes are in for a treat this week!

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 the fun and keep track of the latest release and sale info, as well as giveaways and other polish related discussions by joining the AIPAS Facebook Group. If a community isn't your style, you can always follow this blog using GFC or Bloglovin and get some of 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/Shades of Teebee).

You can email the mod team at or send any of us a private FB message.

Glitter for All!
