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.
This week's challenge theme was Blue, in honour of Light It Up Blue. 'Light it up blue' is a global campaign that sees thousands of iconic landmarks, cities and towns around the world turn blue on April 2 to recognise World Autism Awareness Day. The campaign highlights the pressing need for greater public education and awareness of autism in our community.
