Gridlock Lacquer Mini Mani Event in Niagara Falls

The main reason that I went to Niagara Falls this past weekend was to attend Gridlock Lacquer's Mini Mani Event! Gridlock Lacquer is a newer indie nail polish brand originating out of Buffalo, NY. The brand launched their new Niagara Falls Collection July 12th at their Mini Mani Event on Old Falls Street in Niagara Falls. All of the polishes in this collection are inspired by various places and attractions in Niagara Falls, so it would make an excellent souvenir for any tourists visiting the city!

The Niagara Falls Collection includes 9 polishes, which I'll be swatching & reviewing for you shortly! :) The event was held on Old Falls Street, which is the home of a ton of free events. There were volunteers giving free mini manis (polish removal & application). There was no charge for this manis, but any donations were given to the YWCA of the Tonawandas. There were many girls of all ages coming from manicures - mother-daughters, sisters, friends, coworkers! Ali from Ali's Dancing Phalanges gave me my manicure - thanks girl!

The event was a ton of fun, and I loved being able to meet a few other bloggers and Lisa, the owner of Gridlock Lacquer. Watch out for my full review of the Niagara Falls Collection this coming week. Have you tried any polishes from Gridlock Lacquer before?
