Polish Pickup September 2019

Hello, again! I have 2 polishes from Polish Pickup to share with you today! September’s theme is Magic And Alchemy and the makers involved have created some beautiful things for us! 

Let’s talk about Polish Pickup first and then we’ll get into the swatches. For first time readers, Polish Pickup is an interactive group on Facebook (I will include the link to the group at the end of this post) that allows you to submit theme ideas for each month and vote for your favorite theme. After the theme is picked, you may then select your favorite polishes to purchase from a multitude of different makers. It’s a fabulous concept and very popular!
The shop opens the first Friday of every month and closes the following Monday. This month, the shop opens on 9/6 at 11 am EST and closes on 9/9 at 11:59pm EST. They offer flat rate shipping to the US ($3) and Canada ($5) and orders will usually start shipping about 3 weeks after the shop has closed. Ready for swatches? Coming right up!

Cupcake Polish Bermuda Trio

Hello! I have a gorgeous new trio from Cupcake Polish to share with you today and they will be giving you some tropical vibes!
The Bermuda Trio will be releasing on 8/12 at 8pm CDT. These LE (limited edition) polishes will be single batch and won’t be restocked once they sell out so don’t hesitate on these beauties. They will be available for $13 each. 

Bermuda Bound is a coral creme based holo that is filled with iridescent color shifting flakes, blue shimmer and rainbow iridescent glitters. I loooove coral polishes and the flakes in this one really make it stand out. These polishes all applied wonderfully and there were no issues with formula or removal. My swatches show 2 coats and a quick drying top coat. 

Sea Glass Beach is a hot pink nail polish with a subtle linear holographic effect that is packed with a rainbow of iridescent color shifting flakes. I love this hot pink with the flakes, it’s really a beautiful polish! My swatches show 3 thin coats and a quick drying top coat.
