A million and a half years ago, I picked up a black & white glitter polish in a swap with a young lady on Reddit. I had never seen a glitter quite like this, and I knew I needed it. Who knew that a few years later I would be here posting it again? Let's take a wee gander at the polish that started it all...
I got this back before I knew what indies really were. I was never especially brand-loyal (and for the most part I'm still not), so I really wasn't ready for the intimate world of indies. But I loved this fat little bottle at first swipe, even though I had no idea about the brand or the lovely lady behind it. I used it several times and then stashed it away.

I had no idea that a few short years later I would be sitting here staring at an indie collection that had overtaken my mainstream hoard. I could never have guessed that I would have made such amazing and kick-ass friends (or met a few heinous bitches...win some, lose some) and I will be eternally grateful to this tiny little bottle of glittery goo for pretty much changing my life. And, of course, leading me down the path to all of the shiny things.
I am not the only one waxing nostalgic today! Check out these other posts by some amazing people and see the shade that started it all for them!
