Often, VIP bags are not really worth as much as they say at shows. But the Indie Expo Canada 2019 VIP bag came with eight polishes (many are exclusives), a coupon for a polish from Rogue Lacquer and a bunch of non polish items too. VIP Tickets were $75 and the polishes alone would cost more than that. Plus, entrance is $20 so you are really only paying $55 extra for the swag and early entrance for the best selection – and some did sell out of popular shades early.

I will get you swatches of the stamping polish when I swatch the others. I was helping at their table so it was nice to meet some of you fellow stamping fans.
It’s Not All About The Polish!
There is a lot of nail polish at Indie Expo Canada, but it is not all nail polish. From makeup to bath & body, there were options and some exclusives in the VIP bag.
First, the one I was most looking forward to! Soy Magnifiscents Mani Love. It was the same as her Mini Mani Love gift boxes ($15US) but in limited edition scents. Sasquatch’s Smoothie was in my bag too so I didn’t have to go hunting for a scent swap.
Much “what is this keychain thing” but it is meant to hold your cuticle oil or lip balm so you don’t lose it in the depths of your purse. Perfectly sized for my new Cuter Cuticles oils (not from the VIP bag but seriously, if you haven’t tried Sammy’s oil, you need to).
Clionadh spoiled us with a shadow single and full sized brush (the pretty ones that Shane Dawson recently posted on an instagram story, yay for Clionadh getting that kind of exposure).
SoGa spoiled us with a pamper package including a bath salt sample, shower gel and mani-pedi bomb.
Finally, Under a Hula Moon sent a wax sample and a gummie because Sunday was completely fueled by caffeine and sugar. Most of us had crazy weekends so cookies, candy and more kept us going. It is a good thing that the Hyatt has a Starbucks off the lobby!
