OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
(as in, ACTUAL useful information – written by someone else, clearly)
After a successful fall show in Chicago, The Polish Convention is returning this spring to New York. This bi-annual event hosted by Ever After Polish takes place June 16th, 2018 at Crowne Plaza Hotel in White Plains, NY. Polish Con will be filled with over 20 vendors helping attendees celebrate their love for nail polish and nail polish accessories through shopping, live demos, tutorial tables and meet and greets with their favorite brand owners and creators.
Polish Con is a great way to bring nail polish loving like-minded souls in one place to meet the brands they love and the friends they know through social media.
— Miranda Kraft, Event Organizer
Polish Con is one of the best opportunities for our brand to interact directly with fans. It is such a joy to see the happiness that attendees have seeing their favorite brands’ products in person. It is an event I look forward to each spring and fall. The wide array of brands, nail polish and hand care items we see make this a not to be missed event for nail polish fans.
— Christy Rose, KBShimmer
We thoroughly enjoy Polish Con on so many levels. It’s a great way to meet our customers and other polish makers in person and build friendships. It’s also a fabulous opportunity for me as a polish addict to make purchases in person from the many amazing brands and save on shipping!
— Pam Heil, Girly Bits Cosmetics
Some of the over 20 brands that will be in attendance this year along with the event organizers are KBShimmer, Glisten and Glow, Different Dimension, Takko Lacquer, Bee’s Knees Lacquer, and Girly Bits. For nail artists, bloggers and indie polish lovers in the New York area, this is the perfect opportunity to meet the creators behind your favorite indie brands, socialize with other nail enthusiasts in the community and learn new nail art techniques through live demos and tutorials.
Polish Con means so much to our growing corner of the beauty industry because it reinforces the unique ability we have to connect with our customers on a personal level!
— Taryn Fitzherbert, Anchor & Heart Lacquer
It’s an experience of a lifetime, sharing the passion of nail polish with fellow fanatics and meeting fans and customers! Amazing interpersonal relationships with everyone involved are born at Polish Con! Best of all, seeing all the beautiful polishes in person!
— Jill Rehm-Craine, Glisten & Glow
Polish Con is an amazing opportunity to meet our customers and bond over a passion and love of indie nail polish.
