Polished Pathology

  


Jenne - Polished Pathology - IEC Official Press

 Hello! My name is Jenne, and I'm the face behind Polished Pathology! When I'm not swatching I am working as a Pathologists' Assistant - in short, I cut up body parts! When I'm not working or swatching I'm hanging out with my partner and our two dogs, Evy and Tina. We like to do anything outdoors, plus we are homebrewers and I try to do any craft imaginable. Nail polish and nail art are such a great creative outlet, and I'm excited to share the love with you!

Hi! I'm Jenny, professional writer by day, blogger by night, and polish-a-holic all of the time!!! In the nail world I'm known as thedotcouture. I'm a self-taught nail artist who also really enjoys working with and swatching for polish makers. In general I have a true passion for all things nail-related!

When I'm not painting my own nails, you can find me painting the nails of my 3 children, my family, my co-workers, and anything that will stand still long enough to let me. I love autumn, ice cream, taking pictures, my family, warm hugs, and of course nail polish. I'm so incredibly excited to meet other nail polish fans!

Canadian Nail Fanatic


Canadian Nail Fanatic

 

 

 

Hi!  I'm Tammy (aka Canadian Nail Fanatic, aka Tamara Rex aka mrsrexy).  I'm a self proclaimed workaholic; mom of 3 and 1 fur baby!  Stamping is my nail art of choice; however, I have been known to do swatching and dabble in other nail art forms!  

 

I love stamping, nail polish, Tim Horton triple-triples and when I have time, sitting on my deck, reading a book, drinking my Timmies (this is besides the obvious....my family!).  When I'm not working or doing my nails, I like to .....wait....who am I kidding...... I only work, do my nails, do blog posts, scan FB trying to keep up with all the nail related groups or am on the sites of various makers buying up all the indie nail polishes and stamping plates!

I'm excited to be attending Indie Polish Con and look forward to meeting everyone!

Manigeek


Manigeek PhotoMe? I’m Karen - AKA ManiGeek! I'm 1/2 of the Beautygeeks team and I play nails over there. I’m not a pro, just a polish nerd who has been playing in polish forever. Also, I love my Xbox, coffee, gummy candies, and sleeping. I’m SO good at those!

Mostly I’m a swatcher because I'm all thumbs when it comes to art - no, not in a good way. Indies are a brave new world for me and I'm pretty chuffed to be attending the very first Indie Expo Canada so I can bring all the pretties into your side of the screen. I hope the Indie Journey you take with me will be both fun for both of us! See you on DaWeblog soon?

Manicure Manifesto


Manicure Manifesto photoHi! I'm Michelle, statistician by day, nail polish and makeup addict by night. For over four years I've been writing Manicure Manifesto and serving up a main course of nail polish with sides of makeup and skin care. When I'm not busy blogging I like to photograph things that aren't my fingers, be very distracted mesmerized by my salt water reef aquarium and read ALL the books. What else? I can never pass up a teal polish or a dusty mauve lip. See you at IEC!

Tea & Nail Polish


tea and nail polish photo Hi! I am Eithne, the blogger behind Tea & Nail Polish and host of the Canadian Beauty Bloggers twitter parties.  With mainstream and indie polishes, there is also a lot of stamping on my blog.  I like to mix it up with tea reviews, beauty products and anything else that catches my attention.   When not playing with nail polish you can usually find me at work or cuddled up with a kitty with a cuppa tea in hand.  I will be helping at Alter Ego's table if you want to come say hello!
