Hello! Today I'm back with a post I've wanted to do for absolutely ages. Amy of NailpolishBabyyNinety posted a video a while back going through the alphabet and finding an indie brand for as many letters as possible. I figured I could do a blog post version, and after way too long, here it is! I'm going to pick a random brand for each letter that I can, and show a single polish from that brand. Read on to see how many letters I'm missing!
|A to Z of Indie Brands @acertainbeccaa|
A - 'Ard As Nails 'Getting Berry Cold'*. I had to get started with a UK indie! The last few 'Ard As Nails polishes I've worn are all flakie crellies. Kat is releasing a flakie crelly collection soon, so I may have to grab some!

|Glam Polish 'The Best Futterwacken in all of Witzend' @acertainbeccaa|
I - ILNP 'Pretty Little Liar'. This sat in my untrieds for over 5 years for no good reason - eek!

|Mezmris Nail Lacquer 'Blue Moon' @acertainbeccaa|
R - Rogue Lacquer 'Peter Pan's Flight'. There's a lot of flakie crellies in this list, but I promise this is the last one! Following on from Ever After, I can't resist a Rogue flakie polish.

T - Tonic Polish 'Oops!' from Polish Con Chicago 2017. I don't actually have a lot of Tonic polishes. My favourite is 'Light of Lyra', but I do like this bold coppery oops.

V - Virago Varnish 'Coronado'. I always heard amazing things about Virago, but never had a chance to snag any before they closed. I did however get my hands on 3 bleached neons in a destash which were lovely.

What do you think? I managed to find something for 20 out of the 26 letters of the alphabet - not great, but not too shabby either! I think Amy had the same amount, though she did have brands for H and Q, and had gaps for O and V instead. How many would you be able to do? I may try and do a mainstream/drugstore version soon, although I have just thinned my collection massively - so we'll see how well it goes!
You can find Amy's A-Z of Indie Nail Polish video on her YouTube channel here.
Hope to see you in the next post!
