Happy Monday, dear readers! I hope your week is off to a great start! I am currently staying with my inlaws in Crested Butte watching the snow fall. It's definitely a surreal experience after leaving relatively warm weather in California a few days ago! I came out to Colorado to cover the UberChic Beauty launch party Saturday evening, and if you follow me on Instagram, you may have already caught a few sneak peeks of the event. For today's blog post, I wanted to share the details of the event as well as share a few snippets from the other indie brands in attendance for the event. I hope you're ready as this is going to be a picture-heavy post! Let's do this!
UberChic Beauty launched several new products Saturday evening. From Uber Mini Plates to an XL clear stamper head to Mini Uber Mats, this launch was a stamper's heaven! The launch also included Collection 8 trio of stamping plates.
If you've been following me for a few years, you might remember that I used to live near the desert before moving to California. The new Succulents plate brought back lots of memories, and it was my personal favorite from the launch.
Paris in Love is another cute mini plate that launched. How charming is the image with umbrella at the cafe!
For the times you just want a small image rather than something to cover a large portion of your nails, there is now the Itty Bitty Icons plate. I'm not sure if I love the unicorn or the ladybug more!
The Coffee Addict Mini Plate is for all the coffee fanatics out there. My husband is a coffee snob so I think I'll have to create a look for him with this to celebrate his birthday.
There is also a second Far East plate for when you want a taste of eastern culture on your nails.
Stamping connoisseurs came out dressed to impress and to pick up more plates. In addition to the new products, UberChic Beauty brought products from the current inventory to purchase in addition to the new items.
Attendees had the opportunity to have two accent nails stamped at the event with the new Succulents plate. Deciding between the new Girly Bits stamping polishes can be hard!
Nails of all sizes where stamped. There were some children in attendance, and they enjoyed having their nails stamped as well.
I opted to keep my nails simple so I could enjoy getting them stamped as well!
There were several other indie brands at the launch party that attendees could meet with and purchase from.
Ever After Polish brought their upcoming The Golden Afternoon Collection. This collection has not yet launched, but party attendees had the opportunity to buy these early.
Ever After also created two customs for the event.
And Ever After Polish would not be complete without their fabulous cuticle crelli! There were larger jars for purchase, and customers also got a sample in their scent of choice. There were several scents that I fell in love with that I never tried before! Fruit Cake is delicious!
Colors by Llarowe was also on site with several shades including the new stamping line.
Here is a sneak peek at something to come from Colors by Llarowe! We'll soon be seeing hand scrub and cuticle butter on the market from this indie brand!
Teal We Meet Again was the Colors by Llarowe exclusive for the launch party.
Love, Angeline was also on site with polishes and vinyls for your nail art needs.
I picked up a bottle of Love, Angeline's Topped With Love top coat. This was the top coat used at the stamping station at the launch party, and I was impressed that there was no smearing without having to put an exorbitant amount on the nail. I'm definitely looking forward to testing this out further when I get home!
Love, Angeline also had Mani Crush Fizzies in assorted scents to choose from.
Girly Bits Cosmetics came all the way from Ontario to showcase at the launch party!
Girly Bits also created an event custom. This is A Kiss on the Chic.
For when you want the bling to go beyond your fingertips, Southpawlished had nail polish cabochon rings available for purchase.
I picked up this beautiful ring made with Enchanted Polish Neptune.
Lou It Yourself was on site with polishes, No More Uglies Cuticle Balm, and Zero Thirst Body Lotion. I heard great things about many of Lou It Yourself's body products after the event, so I'm going to have to pick some up to try out! For science, of course!
Look at how cute these cupcake mani bombs are from Sweet Lacquer! These are a new product for the brand, and I picked up two to test out. Bananas Foster and Blueberry Cheesecake smell so delicious!
Sweet Lacquer also brought nail vinyls, of course!
My World Sparkles had a setup as well! I really loved that there were photo albums filled with swatch photos to help you decide if a colour was for you.
My World Sparkles makes their own version of mani fizzies called Pamper Gems. The Green Tea and Cucumber Pamper Gem smells divine!
I was introduced to a new to me brand, Ah Ha! Nail Lacquer, at the launch party. I snatched up a bottle of the beautiful purple holo on the second row to test out quickly!
Ah Ha! Nail Lacquer also has thermal polishes, and I picked up one to test as well.
The UberChic Beauty launch party was the happening place to be in Colorado! There was so much to look at, and polish fanatics were able to spend time together and chat about one of their greatest loves that, let's face it, muggles just don't quite understand. I picked up an assortment of products to test out, and you'll be seeing them pop up after I get back home. My light setup didn't make the cut for traveling since my littles tagged along as well, but you will be seeing these soon!
For those of you that couldn't make it, I hope this post helps you feel like you were there.
Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
