PLEASE NOTE:  Due to the change to fortnightly newsletters our challenges are changing to fortnightly too!

Our next theme is ...... DARK HEARTS.  Open to your own interpretation, wander into the heart of darkness with this theme.  Go with evil or heartbreak themed polishes, use a polish with dark heart glitters, or top a mani with a heart glitter bomb.  Please remember to use the hashtag #darkhearts in the group.


Sayuri Nail Lacquer

Sayuri Nail Lacquer teamed up with Hungry Designs to bring out a range of nail transfers, together with new Sayuri shade Blank Canvas.  

Unfortunately Sayuri have since sold out of their allotment of nail transfers, but they are still available through Hungry Designs.

The AIPAS 1st Birthday Giveaway was drawn, winners notified, addresses confirmed and it is now largely in the hands of the Postal Gods.  We have had one prize haul photo in the group so far, and we hope there are many others over the coming weeks.

AIPAS would like to thank everyone who sponsored a prize, or donated towards postage costs.  Without you, our giveaway would not have happened, and your generosity was greatly appreciated.  Also a thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway, and showed your support for our Aussie Indie polish industry.  


The Australian Indie Polish Appreciation Society was created with a simple goal, to help promote and share the love of Aussie Indie polish brands.

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.  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 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.
