Hey Sugas!!! We’ve had last call, now the house lights are finally up and it’s time to say goodnight. The time has official come and I must say see ya later to my Polish Con New Orleans Spring 2019 series but not before I share the event exclusives and LEs for another NOLA based maker/brand, Mia of Kathleen & Co.
Oh who am I kidding, the party is NOT over!!! I am excited to be travelling to the greatest Cajun Crawfish City in the world for Polish Con and a little family vacation! Be sure to join me on my Facebook page (link below) for periodic live check-ins from New Orleans and Polish Con, I promise you wont want to miss it!
Hey Sugas!!! It’s about that time that I have to start winding down the party. This is the time when the DJ announces last-call at the bar and truth be told, in my younger days when I did party and frequent the clubs on Friday and Saturday nights, I remember making my way up to the bar for one or 2 more shots.
So let’s keep the party going with Mariah of Great Lakes Lacquer from MI. As you may have guessed, the lakes are teeming with new shenanigans including, new event polishes, a spring collection, toppers galore and duo that is undoubtedly stunning!
Side note about The Sunset Duo, as I mentioned previously, it was inspired by the sunsets of the respective homes from Quixotic Polish and Great Lakes Lacquer. The duo includes, “To the East” (GLL) and “To the West” (QP) and will only be sold as a set. At Polish Con, 60 sets will be available – 30 at the GLL table and 30 at the QP table for $22. It will then be available online for 1 week only starting Friday, April 12th at noon est on the Great Lakes site for $25+shipping. Please note there will be a 10-15 business day TAT after close of sale.
Sip slowly on those drinks and let’s head back to the dance floor!
Hey Sugas!!! Apologize for the delay. I got caught up with work and the hours just got away from me. But it’s all good, I’m here now and with some blushing beauties if I might add.
From Indiana to Louisiana, Victoria of Blush Lacquers is headed to Polish Con with a limited edition trio, The French Quarter Ombre Trio which includes Bourbon Street Beauty, Royal Street Rebel and Decatur Street Diva.
In addition to the trio, say ‘hello’ to the Double Rainbow Shimmers Collection and Candy Heart Cremes Collection. These two collections each feature 6 creamy pastel shades inspired by the elusive double rainbow and everyone’s favorite conversation heart candies.
The Double Rainbow Shimmers Collection has vibrant, contrasting shimmer with a sprinkling of gold flakes to create a dreamy, ethereal look reminiscent of rainbows across a stormy sky. While the Candy Heart Cremes are versatile and can be worn alone for a timeless and simple look or worn as a base color with the coordinating Double Rainbow Shimmers Collection.
PLEASE NOTE – THIS POST CONTAINS VIP SWATCHES!
Hey Sugas!!! A party just ain’t a party until the host arrives. And here in the Queendom, we know how to party!!! Traditionally, the host arrives a little later than the invited guests and makes a grand entrance. Now the grand entrance is important because it set the tone for the entire event. The entrance should make sense and evoke a sense of excitement. We’ve all seen amazing entrances at weddings and Sweet 16s – maybe it’s being flown in on a private helicopter or horse drawn carriages, regardless, it’s always the talk of the town.
So let me paint the scene for you…..
Lights are dim and instantly a loud BOOM and complete darkness fill the space with hundreds of party go-ers. Suddenly, glowing neon strobe lights in shades of purple, green and gold appear and out of nowhere music is blaring out of the speakers. Slowly the lights start to fade in and there is Miranda of Ever After Polish atop her Mardi Gras float.
The host of all things Polish Con has officially arrived!!!! Let the party begin!!! Along with her, she brings her event VIP, an exclusive , 3 LEs and a remix. This is one for the books!
Hey Sugas!!! I hope you’re not tired because the Polish Con train is just heating up and the final stop… New Orleans!
From the all-star brand that brought you such greats as The Wilds of Arizona parts 1 & 2, the Spring Punk Quad and Sirens of the Summer, allow me to introduce you to another Polish Con veteran all the way from Arizona, Rachel of Rogue Lacquer!
***insert applause and cheering here***
Rachel is ready to take Polish Con by storm with 3 bayou bombshell limited editions and her newest, upcoming collection debuting at PC, Adventure Awaits: Isle of Wight!!! Let’s take a look!
Louisiana is the home and/or birth place of many greats including stars and celebs like Ellen DeGeneres, Harry Connick Jr and Sandra Bullock just to name a few but what may not have know was that Jill of Jreine also calls it home. Yep, the co-host of the Spring 2019 Polish Con is the creator and mixologist behind the fabulous-ness of Jreine.
Although her love for everything nails started long ago when she started going to cosmetology school to be a nail technician, her indie journey began in 2012 with Jreine officially starting at the end of 2016 on Etsy.
As you can imagine LA courses through her blood so everything she does has a New Orleans flair to it including the 3 event exclusives.
Hey Sugas!!! In just 11 short days, I’ll be up to my eyeballs in beignets and po’boys but not before taking part in the main event of my family vacation – Polish Con. To mere muggles, buying nail polish may seem uneventful but in the indie world it’s pure bliss. Saturday, April 6th is the day when my dreams come true in the my happiest place on earth, New Orleans!
I have already told my husband and children they may be returning to MD without me….lol. For as long as I could remember, I have always wanted to visit N’awlins. Its a city of culture, music and great food – who could ask for more?! I am super excited that I get to experience these moments with my family and create a lifetime of memories.
Oh… who am I kidding, it’s all about the polish baby!!!! This year, Meagan of Ethereal Lacquer is joining the cast of brands that is sure to make this event spectacular. Meagan has created 3 event exclusives and The Succulent Collection all of which will debut at Polish Con and be available in her online shop at a later date/time.

***For fun, read intro with a proper English accent**
Once upon a time there were 2 of the sweetest Fair Maidens whom we will call Adrienne and Sarah. These 2 were the greatest of friends who found that they had an even greater love and fondness with nail polish. The 2 set out to fashion wondrous creations that have adorned nails and have been the base of many great manicures for years. Fast-forward to present day, as the 2 prepare to travel the lands from Minnesota to Louisiana with bountiful lacquers for one such momentous event known to the people of the indie nail polish world as Polish Con.
In true Fair Maiden style, the pair have created 3 event polishes along with a VIP. Hold your britches chap, let’s take a look!

Hey Sugas!!!! You may or may not have noticed a common theme from Kim of Aurora Nail Lacquer for Polish Con New Orleans Spring 2019. Her Road to Polish Con (RTPC) was called Are You Peacocking Me and now she has created a VIP, event exclusive and a LE trio reminiscent of the gorgeous colors found in the peacock feather.
Here are a few fun facts:
- Peacocks (male) and Peahens (female) are know as peafowl which are members of the pheasant family.
- There are two peafowl species: Indian or blue peafowl and green peafowl. Most people are familiar with the Indian peafowl, since that is the kind found in many zoos and parks.
- A group of peafowl is called an ostentation, or a pride which is very appropriate given the large train for this showy bird.
- There are several genetic color mutations of Indian peafowl, including white.
- The Indian peafowl is the national bird of India and is protected in that country. To Hindus, the peafowl is a sacred bird; the spots on the peacock’s train symbolize the eyes of the gods.
Prepare yourself for the staple of any masquerade ball, vibrantly beautiful and over-the-top majestic, jewel-toned, jaw-dropping, peacock inspired polishes.
