Canadian Indie Nail Polish, Nail Art & Nail Care Makers

Canadian Indie Nail Polish Brands, Nail Art Brands, Cuticle Care

For those fellow Canadians, you likely know the feeling of dread when buying from abroad.  They may use a courier and you get hit with a ridiculous fee for taking it across the border.  The US dollar is so expensive making everything cost so much for us.  Plus it is always good to keep business in Canada and help local makers.  Here are all of the Canadian Indies I know of making nail polish, nail art supplies or nail and cuticle care.
