I gotta do this pressy part… Ya’ll know I went to the first ever Indie Expo Canada in Toronto on June 4? I did! And I saw things I ain’t never seen afore! Polish errrrrywhere! Seriously, like the best dream you ever had – in full colour! Ya. So I went there and I took a whole bunch of credit cards with me (shh… don’t tell Nick, k?). Then I bought stuff... 

What’s up first from my Indie Expo Canada shopping extravaganza? It’s Fiendish Fancies Artisan Nail Polish. And you know what? It’s pretty exciting stuffs.

Indies here just don’t get enough play. Why? Because with conversion and shipping, they burn huge holes in our polish budgets. To make it even harder, the indie community here likes to play polish in secret.

No more, man. No more secrets. If you’re a Canadian Beautygeeks/Manigeek follower who has been on the Indie sidelines like I have, I’m about to bust your nail polish world wide open! I totally am! This is a 100% internationally accessible Canadian Indie brand and I seriously fell right into The Love with it.

I came home from IEC 2017 with 6 Fiendish Fancies polishes and I know this is going to shock you: I like ALL of them. You know I always call it exactly the way I experience it, right? As I see it from playing in these 6 shades, this brand deserves your attention.

Launched in 2015, this independent brand is Toronto-based (like me!). From the website, I can also tell you “every collection is based upon influences in horror films and television – from The Walking Dead, Penny Dreadful and American Horror Story, to the film adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe…”

But wait, it gets better... I just reached out to Lara (who makes all these beautiful polishes), and I asked her if we could extend her Indie Expo Canada coupon code to our lovely Beautygeeks readers. She said yes! Wheeee!! 

That means from now until July 31, 2017, if you enter the code IEC2017 on your order, you'll get 13% off! Did I mention Fiendish Fancies has a line of thermals launching somewhere around June 10th? Oh yes, they do. Here, lookit this IG shot from fellow Canadian blogger Tea & Nail Polish:

I know, right? I SO should have pre-ordered dat! *face-palm*

Uh, why are you still here? Go look at all of Lara’s pretties on, put some in your cart, and apply your special IEC2017 code. Then, knowing you saved some dough, add another bottle and pull the credit-card trigger! Get outta here!!
