This past weekend I attended the International Makeup Artists Trade Show (IMATS) NYC. (Recap this week!) It’s a huge two day expo for makeup companies, artists and lovers. I attended Saturday and I really liked it. I was hesitant about attending because I’m just starting to explore makeup but I’m glad I went.
I was able to pick up a few goodies at discounted prices, including Julie G nail polishes by Jesses Girl. This line is available at Rite Aid and is really affordable at $3.99 per bottle. At IMATS they were $4 per bottle or 3 for $10. I bought 3.
I chose Cabana Boy (blue) because it looks like essie Butler, Please which I’ve been lusting over. I chose Fairytale (lilac) because it reminds me of essie Play Date. Finally, I chose A Star is Born (silver glitter) because I’ve been looking everywhere for one. I swatched all 3 as soon as I got home and I’m so glad that I got them. The formula is great and the application was really beautiful – it wasn’t streaky or hard to apply.
