making nail polish at comicpalooza
The Houston Mini Maker Faire invited me to join them at their exhibit space they had at Comicpalooza (The Texas International Comic Con). I had never been to or exhibited at a Con before, but I signed up anyway to see what Houston had in store for us! The con attendees were enthusiastic about making, so I’m so glad we went! We had a chance to tell all the people who stopped by our booth about the upcoming Houston Mini Maker Faire that will happen on Saturday, November 1, 2014 at the Stafford Centre. They are still looking for exhibits, so sign up to bring your project to the faire!

Soap and nail polish we made at Comicpalooza:
….and last but not least, my awesome booth helpers Jacob, P.J. & Eva! I used to work with Jacob & Eva way back when at The Methodist Hospital, so it was good to get to see them for a bit during the 4-day con! P.J. ran the soap side of my booth while I taught people how to mix up their own custom polishes.
My next walk-up nail polish making workshop is at the SXSW Renegade Craft Fair Thursday – Sunday, March 13, 14 + 15th Noon – 8pm open to the public at the Palmer Events Center.
Create your own nail polishes! Create your own nail polishes! Make one or make as many as you’d like at the ATX Hackerspace located at 9701 Dessau Rd, Suite 304, Austin, Texas 78754 on Saturday, July 27th from Noon – 5pm. It’s a walk-up event, so no RSVP required! $6 to make a mini polish or $10 to make two!
I have 80+ micas & 30+ glitters to choose from to combine custom nail lacquers on the spot. Make sheer, opaque or glitter-bomb polishes!
You can also bring your existing polishes to make new blends with them!

What people are saying about our Nail Polish Parties!
“I went to one of Lisa’s parties and had an absolute BLAST! There were so many colors and glitters to choose from; I had fun picking out my own colors while seeing what others chose. Lisa was warm and inviting, as well as instructional and informative. I felt like she really cared about my experience and I look forward to going to another one of her parties!” – Miranda B.
