First Indie Polish Haul!

I have finally jumped on the indie polish bandwagon! I'd been ooing and ahhing indie polish from a far, but didn't purchase any until I found out about Harlow & Co a Canadian company that sources and sells over 40 different indie brands! Not only do I love supporting a Canadian beauty business, but for orders over $50, shipping is free! I hate paying shipping on orders so this was another point that helped me bite the bullet and delve into the world of indie polish!

L to R: Girly Bits Save Your Scissors, Glam Polish Isengard, Love Thy Polish He Lives In You, KBShimmer Look High and Holo, Lac Attack Moony

Girly Bits Save Your Scissors is described as a "lavender crelly base with neon pink hexes and squares, lavender, plum, and teal hexes, aqua and white dots, and sparks of silver holo". I'm a huge fan of purple polish, and I love how unique this polish is. Plus how cute is the brand's logo?

Glam Polish Isengard was a must-have for me. I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan and it was hard to decide which polish from this collection was the one I would get (first...lol). I decided on Isengard due to the beautiful purple to blue shift, although I might just have to collect the whole collection since it combines two of my favourite things, Lord of the Rings and polish!

Love Thy Polish He Lives In You is described as a "medium gray base with white, orange, and blue glitters". Plus it's based on Rafiki from The Lion King. No-brainer!

KBShimmer Look High and Holo is described as a "raspberry jelly base loaded with holographic glitter". As you can see, this was my attempt to stray away from purples, blues, and grays!

Lac Attack Moony was my Harry Potter pick. I'm also a huge Harry Potter fan, and was originally going to choose The Brightest Witch, but I read some reviews about it being a bit hard to work with so I settled on Moony instead (and Remus Lupin is one of my favourite characters!). Moony is a "silvery blue foil with tiny flakes in it, some of which flash purple"
These 5 polish cost $50.40 before taxes and I am super excited that I get to try out 5 indie brands in the process!
Have you tried indie polish? Which indie brand should I look into next?
Thanks for reading!
