ISSE Long Beach 2015: Show Overview and Nail Trend Report

Press Pass

So uh this is a few weeks late but I wanted to talk about my experiences at ISSE Long Beach 2015. I had the opportunity to attend and cover some of the new nail polish trends and products available at the show. I'll talk about the biggest nail polish trend I saw and show pictures of some of the booths. What I hope to see in future shows is representation from indie brands. I think the only "indie" company I saw was MoYou London, who were selling nail stamping plates at the show. I think with trends like indie nail polish and nail vinyls, it'd be a great opportunity to see them represented at the show.

Anyway, onto my photos!

Best of Indie - Readers' Choice Awards Winners: Part One (Cosmetics)

I'm so proud to announce the final results of the Best of Indie - Readers' Choice Awards Series. I'm splitting the results into two parts, Part One (this post) where I'll cover the Cosmetics categories and Part Two (the next post) where I'll cover the Bath & Body and Fragrances categories. For each brand that won, I wrote up a little blurb about them including where they ship from and if they ship internationally. If they won multiple categories, I listed the blurb once so as not to be repetitive.

Also, I wanted to thank Joana for designing the badges with me! She was very patient in spite of all the changes I wanted to make. She was great to work with so feel free to check her portfolio out if you'd like to commission work from her.

Sugarpill Cosmetics New Release: Nine New Chromalusts & a Limited Edition Chromalust!

Affiliate Links

When Sugarpill comes out with a new release, they really go all out! I'm glad that they've been coming out with so much recently, it's been rough waiting in between releases. This new release includes nine new Chromalusts, some of which are colors to replace some recently discontinued colors, and a limited edition Chromalust. The new colors are releasing at 2pm today!

Just a note, the Chromalusts have gone up from $12.00 to $13.00 or $14. All of them except Goldilux and Grand Tiara are $13.00 and Goldilux and Grand Tiara is $14.00 (not sure why).

The new colors are: Charmy, Clickbait, Countess, Grand Tiara, Holy Ghost, Hug Life, Mint Soda, Penelope, and Strangeling. The limited edition color is Pastelle.

Grand Tiara appears to be a replacement for Tiara and Strangling appears to be a replacement to Hysteric. Holy Ghost does appear close to Starling and Clickbait seems like a lighter version of Junebug. The rest of the colors seem like new shades to the line!

Here are some swatches of the new nine Chromalusts!
