Eyes on Indie Event- San Jose, CA

Monday, September 23, 2013
Hi folks!

The weekend before last there was a really nifty event at Black Cat Collective in downtown San Jose. Katherine of Polished by KPT and Thoey of Ecomonster hosted a nail party that focused on indie polish makers in the area including Shirley Ann Lacquer, Illume Lacquer, Wicked Polish, PolishTBH, Mentality Polish and of course Polished by KPT!

There were free DIY activities like a manicure station and a hand scrub making station. There were also tasty cocktails
 Polished by KPT's setup was French inspired, complete with macarons!

 Illume Lacquer had so many different glitter toppers.

A brand that was new to me, Shirley Ann Nail Lacquer.

 These were all taken before the event started. So many people came! I was so surprised to see that there were so many nail polish lovers that were local. The building felt like it was packed the whole time, it was pretty hot in there.
Take a look at this fabulous gift basket that one lucky winner of the raffle received. Is that a basket loaded with loot or what?

Other vendors included Jewels by Daisy and Mac Ahh Run. Macarons? You bet your sweet bottom that I bought some!

My favorite were the green tea ones. Flavor wise I loved the salted caramel but the shells on that flavor were very airy.

It was a fantastic event, I met a lot of fun people! If you're in the Bay area, be sure to follow @eyesonindie on Instagram for future polish events.
