Model City Polish Pour Me Another And Fairy Fight

Hello my lovely lacqueristas! For the next few weeks I will be sharing with you a TON of indies, some of which I haven't had the pleasure of owning before. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend an event at this year's Cosmoprof North America called Sparkle & Wine which was put on by the amazing and sweet Christy of KB Shimmer and the equally amazing and sweet Pam of Girly Bits Cosmetics. During this event I had a chance to mingle with some incredibly talented indie makers, as well as some very inspiring bloggers. I cannot wait to share with you all of the goodies I came home with, but today we are starting with Model City Polish!

Before this event I did not own any Model City Polish. I'm not entirely sure why because once I dove into swatching and swatched the two polishes I'm sharing with you today, I was in l.o.v.e! The formula and dry times were wonderful and these colors are simply amazing. 
Also included in this gift was a mini glass nail file which is something I always need more of right? This one is small and compact, so I can take it with me when I leave the house and I can stow it away in one of my side pockets in my purse so I don't have to worry about it being mixed in with all my other junk that somehow finds its way into my seemingly never ending purse. These files will retail for $5 for a pack of three mini files and $8 for a pack of three full size files.
Another goodie tucked into this gift was a cuticle oil in the scent strawberry jam. This smells SO good! Strawberry jam indeed! I could seriously sit here and smell my fingers all day long with this stuff on. It soaks into my cuticles fairly quickly and that wonderful scent lasts for a good while. The ingredients listed on this oil are, almond oil, avocado oil, enriched with Vitamins A, B, C, & E and fragrance oils. I love it, and I actually have it on as I type this. Yummy! These cuticle oils will retail for $3 for a mini size and $4.50 for a full size and are available in a variety of scents that are sure to please.
Now for the pretty polish! I received two bottles in my gift bag. I have for you today "Pour Me Another" and "Fairy Fight". Both gorgeous! So let's dive right in shall we?

First up is "Pour Me Another" which is described as "a mixture of jelly and crelly wine colored blend with a hint of pink and then loaded with holographic goodness." Holographic goodness is right!  Excuse me while I die! This polish was created specifically for the Sparkle & Wine event, but fear not my fellow holo lovers! This polish is being released today at 3pm cst in their shop here so that you may also get your hands on this beauty! It will retail for $10.50 for a full size bottle, with a 5 free formula. If you don't look at this polish and absolutely NEED it, then I don't know what you're thinking. I used two coats with HK Girl by Glisten & Glow top coat for my pictures.

Next up is "Fairy Fight", which is described as "a light purple crelly packed with tiny pink and blue shards. The shards have a slight sparkle in sunlight and adds a magical touch to this Sleeping Beauty inspired blend." This polish is gorgeous and so unique to me. I love the subtle shimmer that it has that just adds a nice little sparkle to an already beautiful polish. I used two coats with HK Girl Glisten & Glow top coat for my pictures.
