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! 

By Dany Vianna created a polish inspired by Basilisks and it is absolutely beautiful! 

Basilisk Scales has a peridot holo base and is filled with metallic gold flakes and green and gold ultrachrome chameleon flakes. I love this polish, it really is beautiful. For my swatches, I used 2 thin coats and a quick drying top coat. 

This polish will be $11.50 and will have a cap of 100 bottles. 

Cupcake Polish was inspired by Elphaba from the musical, Wicked. Wicked Through and Through has a green jelly base and is loaded with vibrant green to gold to pink shifting iridescent flakes. I love the green base paired with the flakes! My swatches show 3 thin coats and I topped it with a quick drying top coat. 

This polish will be $13 and will not be capped. 

Head over to the Polish Pickup Facebook group to see the other products that have bern created for this month. They’re beautiful! Thanks for reading!
