Welcome to the Australian Indie Nail Polish Appreciation Society Newsletter for this week! AIPAS is a Facebook group of brands and fans that have come together to share the love of Australian Indie Polish.

NEW POLISH RELEASES
Moonstone Nail Polish have release some new manicure products to their range, namely a base coat, quick-dry top coat, matte top coat and holographic top coat. Check the products in store for more info.
Sadly, Loki's Lacquer will cease selling Indie polish on 1 April. You can still purchase from the farewell collection, the "Really Really Really Goodlooking Collection", which is based on the movie Zoolander. This collection really showcases Tara's creativity both in her polish themes, and in the naming, and this Ed will sure miss this little corker of a brand.
Sayuri Nail Lacquer
Sayuri Nail Lacquer still have their Top 5 polishes from the last year on sale as part of their birthday celebrations, but this sale ends Monday night at 11:59pm AEST.
Sayuri will be at the Gold Coast Supanova on April 5th and 6th, 10:00am until 6:00pm. If you're going to Supanova, drop by and say hello!
Celestial Cosmetics turns 1 on 25 April 2014, and will be celebrating for the entire month of April.
Each week, there will be a different special! Examples are free shipping, or a 25% discount, so you will need to keep an eye on Celestial's Facebook page for details.
Every order will also receive a full-sized mystery polish, which will be "a duochrome of some sort"!
POLISH RELATED INDIE NEWS
Help Me Ronda
This is the last week to pre-order your Easter Edition Hydration Balm. Order by midnight of Wednesday 2nd April for shipping on Friday 4th.
The hydration balms are made in batches of 6, so once the pre-orders are filled, any spare product will be available for purchase after the 4th. Once that is sold out, they won't be available again.
A special message from Ronda about the Easter Edition Hydration Balms:
These balms are made of Mango butter, Coconut oil and Evening Primrose oil with a spot of Tea Tree oil. They are super moisturising with an added antiseptic effect from the tea tree. The balm will leave your cuticles (and any other dry bits) feeling and looking soft as well as smelling delicious!
