Indie Nail Polish Shop Links

Here is a continuously updated list of indie polish sellers (428 indie shops as of 8/2013) that ADVENTURES OF THE NAIL FRIENDS originally started.  I try to update twice a year.  If you create polish and ALREADY have a store that you want listed, please message me with a link (see bottom of page.)
  

-This is meant to be a list of all indie brands that I find-the good, the bad, and the ugly.   It is always best to research unknown polish creations and look for swatches and reviews (this is standard for even large company brands) to see if it is compatible with what you want. 
-Some indie brands sell in multiple places. At the bottom of the page are the brands and the alternate places to buy them.
-When I update, i go through the links and delete any stores that are no longer in business.  If you have no stock in your store and no explanation of where you are or when you are coming back, I delete.  IF you wish to be re-added, list your link in the comments section.
(taken from http://dictionary.reference.com)
DEFINITION OF INDIE: an independently owned business. self-employed or privately owned.

In the nail polish world, the term "indie" has come to mean handmade nail polish, even though the original term means an independently owned business.  For the sake of clarity, I have labeled those that are not handmade as "Indie+."   These "Indie+" brands are still owned and operated by one person, but the polishes are made in a lab.

Thank you for commenting on this page requesting me to review polishes!  If you are interested in having me review your polishes, please email me at illustratedlady(at)me(dot)com. At this time, I am only reviewing on FB and IG.  You can also private message me on my FACEBOOK PAGE.  Thank you all for your support and interest in this page!

I just became aware that you have added my indie polish shop on Etsy to your list. Thank you so much!!!!

Flipping through the list I was excited to see Femme Fatale (luuuuv duochrome eyeshadows) but noticed it was another company altogether! Femme Fatale cosmetics also has nail polish so it seems there are 2 shops with the same name. Going by Facebook, FFC started them in July while FFL opened a page in the middle of August.
