18th Edition 

Welcome to the Australian Indie Nail Polish Appreciation Society Newsletter for this week!  AIPAS is a Facebook group of brands and fans that have come together to share the love of Australian Indie Polish.  If you're only stumbling across this newsletter from the web, please drop by and check out our Facebook group for shared swatches, up to date release previews and our weekly challenge.


Cassandra treated us to an excuse to wear some of our most exclusive polish this week, with the Discontinued or Limited Edition theme.  So, there is a possibility that if you fall in love with one of these polishes it will be forever out of your reach, but aren't they so pretty?

Next week's theme is YELLOW!  Remember our themes are pretty loose - if you don't have a yellow Indie polish, but have one with yellow glitter in it, wear that one! 


Peaches Polish released three new shades on Friday, seen below as swatched by LilyandJinks.  Kirsty from Peaches Polish has given us a run down, which will be below the photos.

A beautiful rich purple jelly polish with fine pink glitters, light purple Hex glitter and white bar glitter. 
3 coats with topcoat in this picture. You really don't need a topcoat with this polish it is that glossy you don't  need one. But you can add a top coat if you prefer.  

A pretty sliver shimmer glitter bomb (topper or by its self ) 
White snow flakes, holo snow flakes,  Sapphire hex glitter, Lavender hex glitter, Pink hex glitter Sliver Holo hex glitter. 2 coats with top coat to get that shimmer to pop even more. 

This beauty is such a mystical polish, through the day time it's a Pearl green with a shimmer of Red,Purple and Blue plus Aqua Dots ,Neon Green Squares and fine White hex. Then at night it will GLOW IN THE DARK!!!! A sweet little Blue-Green fairy coming to say hello. Wear it by itself or over an undie.
